Google Chrome and vertical offset

i notice with google chrome that if i have many tabs open, i can't close the ones on the right because of the titlebar buttons. it would be nice to set the vertical offset based on application, or, just for google chrome, or somehow make display fusion handle the chrome window differently.

You could always turn off the titlebar buttons for chrome in compatibility...

EDIT: (it's just dawned on me that if you know about offsets you probably have seen the compatibility settings. Oh well.)

The new beta (Beta 11) already takes care of this issue:

When the tabs get too far over to the right, DisplayFusion will hide it's buttons so it's not covering anything. :)

I use Google Chrome as well, and it's definitely not a perfect solution. However, there just isn't any room anywhere for the TitleBar Buttons to go. If you have any ideas I'm always open to suggestions.

well, being able to offset it for either just chrome, or, having an offset setting per application would be a better solution.

You can offset it for just Chrome, but there isn't really anywhere for the buttons to go. The Chrome tabs go all the way across the top of the window.

I believe he meant an additional vertical offset, and ya know, why not? You could do interesting things like placing the button below the windows one.

yep, something like that Kevin, not sure what jon meant by offset just for chrome, i thought the offset setting was 1 setting global for the app

Moving the DF Buttons below the Windows buttons in Chrome would block some of the toolbar buttons. Having the DF Buttons disappear isn't perfect, but it's the best I think of right now.

thats why if u were able to offset per application, u could put it somewhere that makes sense for you, since i'm sure we all have different buttons setup. or maybe a way to have it collapse with an arrow button that will expand it so we can select one.

Excellent point. It's too late to add in a vertical offset setting, but I'll be sure to add this in the Compatibility section for the 3.1.9 release. Thanks!

cool, looking forward to it.

also, i've only had this app maybe 2 months, bought 2 licenses, but it's fantastic to see a developer so attentive to the customers, i love it!
