Feature Request - Discrete Functions for "Enable Monitor Fading" and "Disable Monitor Fading"

I've been working on setting up a "night mode" for my PC that cuts my triple monitors down to 1 main monitor (via monitor profiles). Attached to that monitor profile is a dark wallpaper, and then I have a DF Trigger setup on enabling that profile to automatically:

- Trigger Windows to be in grayscale mode (custom function to check if it's not in grayscale mode already via the registry, then sending Win+Ctrl+C to enable Windows Color Filtering if not)
- Turn on DF monitor fading (to bring down the brightness of the monitor by 50%)
- Switch Windows over to dark mode (via some reg add commands)

I also have a "day mode" profile that turns on all 3 monitors, has a bright wallpaper attached, turns off grayscale mode, turns off DF monitor fading, and switches Windows over to light mode.

The issue I'm running into is that DisplayFusion only has a function for Toggle Monitor Fading, not discrete functions for Monitor Fading On / Off. This leads to cases where sometimes things get out of sync, and monitor fading is turned on by the day mode / turned off by the night mode, and I have to go into DF settings to manually turn on / off Monitor Fading to get things back in sync with where they should be.

My feature request to enable me to fix this automation would be this: could DF expose additional discrete "Enable Monitor Fading" and "Disable Monitor Fading" functions in the Window Management section of Settings -> Functions, which, instead of toggling, would explicitly set Monitor Fading on / off?

This would let me include an Enable Monitor Fading in the trigger tied to the night mode monitor profile, and a Disable Monitor Fading in the trigger tied to the day mode monitor profile, which would keep things from getting out of sync, since I'd be setting a desired state (on / off) rather than toggling and hoping the start state was correct to end up with the correct monitor fading mode after the toggle.

Hi Shawn,

This is currently on our feature request list, so I've added your vote to it. We'll be sure to let you know if/when we're able to implement it in the future.
