Multi-Monitor Taskbar - grouped buttons behavior

I'm running Windows 7 Enterprise with two monitors and v3.4.1 of Display Fusion Pro

I was wondering if you could look at the behavior of the grouped buttons (GBs) when they are clicked. The Windows 7 Style of the Multi-Monitor Taskbar preview doesn't work exactly the same as the stock Windows 7 taskbar.

When the Windows previews are displayed on the stock taskbar GBs and you click the GBs, the previews remain. On the Multi-Monitor Taskbar, if you click the GBs while the previews are displayed, the previews close.

Where this trips me up is I often click on the GBs before the preview comes up, but sometimes I'm not that fast, so the preview comes up before I click. On the stock taskbar this has no effect, but on the multi-monitor taskbar the previews close.

A minor quirk on an otherwise outstanding product.

Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback! We'll see if we can make it so that the left-click won't close it while the previews are still in the process of being shown.

In the meantime, you can adjust the "Taskbar: Thumbnail Preview Delay" option in the Advanced Settings. The default is 1000 (1 second), so if you bump it up to 2000 or 3000, that should give you a bit more time to click on the button before the previews are shown.

Hope that helps!

Just a quick update on this, we've just released 4.0.1 Beta 6, and this issue should hopefully be fixed up. Could you give it a try and let me know how it goes?

That did the trick! 4.0.1 Beta 6 is working great. Thanks!!

While testing, I noticed that changing the "Taskbar: Thumbnail Preview Delay" option in the Advanced Settings doesn't take effect until DisplayFusion is restarted. No big deal, but thought you might like to know in case this isn't the expected behavior.

Thanks again!
