dock/undock laptop and wallpaper resolution gets screwed up

Ok. I have a laptop whose display is 1440x900. When I dock it I have a 22" monitor whose resolution is 1680x1050. I also have a second smaller monitor (1280x1024) that is used when I dock.

When I am docked I use DisplayFusion to set a different wallpaper to each monitor. I sized them through photoshop to be the correct size (1680x1050 on the main monitor, 1280x1024 on the secondary one). Everything looks fine. When I boot up my laptop undocked, the wallpaper does not adjust to the new resolution (1440x900) EVEN THOUGH I have it set to a size mode of "Stretch". Instead, the edges are cut off. If I go into DisplayFusion and adjust the wallpaper (select a different size mode and then re-select "stretch) it will look OK like it should've anyway. However, once I've set it undocked, when I go back and dock my laptop the wallpaper then starts to TILE even though it is set to "stretch"!

Basically, undocking/docking completely jacks up the way DisplayFusion works. :-(

I do not know if this is a pro only thing, but go into settings, wallpaper, and enable the last ooption and the sub option if you want as well.

Huh. So that's what that option is? Are you pretty sure that will take care of the issue?

Yes, it is a Pro Only feature. Ironic, that is the "broken" functionality that was keeping me from paying for the software! :-) If this does fix my issue I may have to pay for it.

I would love to say 100% sure, but i don't use it myself, I don't ever have that issue. Thought I am at like 99% . Have you tried the trial?

I just got a trial license. Next time I undock I'll know. I'll report back here.

The Free version can notify you when your wallpaper needs to be fixed, but the Pro version can fix it automatically for you. I hope the trial version works well for you, and if not please let me know. Thanks!
