Displayfusion makes Imgui applications behave strangely

So this is a peculiar thing.
There is this application that I use as a necessity, it makes use of the Imgui library, and this application causes peculiar issues when it comes to alt-tab and taskbar locations. For instance, I move this app in question into display #2, it does not show up in DisplayFusion's alt-tab menu, and the taskbar icon is still stuck in the primary display.
Now what happens when I move the app to the primary display? well the icon is still stuck there, so that is redundant, but Window's own alt-tab manager fails to find the app. I have confirmed it to work just fine without DisplayFusion active, so there must be something going on with how DisplayFusion is handling things.
I was informed by a developer of the application in question that DisplayFusion excludes the 0x0 invisible parent, which makes just about all of the Imgui software malfunction as they require the 0x0 to work properly in respect to tab and display context awareness.
I had been pleading with the dev team to make the application function nicely with DisplayFusion, and they told me that without DF allowing special overrides for size filtering, there is nothing they can actually do.
I am in a pickle, as I actively need DisplayFusion as well as the application, and it sucks that they do not cooperate with each other.
Is there anything that can be done on the other side, something that can perhaps make it easier for the devs to work around the issue presented by DF?

Hello,

Could you do the following to send me some more information about the application window that's having this issue?

  • Install one of our other apps, Window Inspector: https://www.binaryfortress.com/windowinspector (it's free)
  • Open the affected application
  • Open Window Inspector
  • Hover over the affected window with your mouse so that the affected window's info shows in the Window Inspector window
  • Press Ctrl + Shift + F1 to freeze the timer in Window Inspector
  • Press Ctrl + Shift + F2 to save the info from Window Inspector to a file
  • Send me the file from the previous step

Thanks!

Here is the data gathered about the program. I have moved the application (SKIF) to my portrait monitor, but the taskbar icon is stuck on the main monitor and it is nowhere to be found on either alt-tab manager.
