Free Version of DisplayFusion stopped managing Desktop Wallpapers after some point

Hi DisplayFusion community,

I've been using DisplayFusion for a while now and so far I only ever used it to manage my multi-monitor wallpapers on Windows 10 which always worked great.

I have two monitors and one TV connected to my PC and disable my second monitor and the TV always unless I need them. Whenever I re-enable one or both DisplayFusion used to display a notification-toast saying something along the lines of:

DisplayFusion has detected that your monitor configuration has changed, click here to adjust your wallpapers.

I clicked that and my wallpapers would correct themselves as Windows 10 by itself can't seem to remember which wallpaper goes onto which monitor.

After some while and maybe a DisplayFusion update I stopped getting this notification-toast when enabling or disabling additional monitors and have to manually open up DisplayFusion and click Apply to fix my wallpapers.

"Allow DisplayFusion to manage the Desktop Wallpaper" is still checked and "Autofix wallpaper images when wallpaper feature is enabled" is still too.
Did that become a pro feature or is something amiss here? I wouldn't mind buying the Pro Version eventually but first I want to know what's wrong.

I'm running Windows 10 1809 64bit and DisplayFusion 9.4.3.

Thanks for help in advance!

I'm seeing the same behaviour here, thanks for the heads up! As far as I know this is a bug, so I've added it to our list to fix up.

In the meantime, you can assign a key combination to the "Reload Current Wallpaper Profile" function on the DisplayFusion Settings > Functions tab. Then you can run that any time you need to quickly re-apply the wallpaper.

Thanks!

Ah so it was bug afterall, good to know and no problem, I'm happy to help! :)

Also thanks for the tip with the shortcut, I didn't even think of doing something like that. It actually works even better for me as I change my monitors via macro-keys so I can just append the wallpaper reload to the macro.
