1) If "Edit Window Position Profile" is not the active window when you hover the cursor over it, the "Settings" window of DisplayFusion comes to the foreground by itself, obsucring the "Edit Window PP" window.

2) Restoring/moving the Winamp main player window does not work. As far as I'm aware this is an old problem already discussed on the forum 4-5 years ago. But given that there are other programs like Windows Layout Manager that work with Winamp I wonder, if this couldn't be solved for DF as well. That said I understand that this might be a very minor issue for about 2 people using DF and not affect any other programs than Winamp.

3) "Window Text" - I'm not quite clear on how it works, or rather how it would work for the following situations:
3a) Using Firefox I have one window with multiple tabs open for various social media sites. Hence the active tab changes between a few options. How would I set it up for that window's position to be saved? Can I use "Facebook - Firefox"AND"Instagram - Firefox"AND etc. for the "Window Text" field? Would I need multiple captures of the Window with the various tabs active?
3b) I also have my main Firefox Window, that I use for normal web browsing and thus has a virtually unlimited amount of possible window names. How would I go about having that Firefox window's positon saved, while also keeping other Firefox Windows with more static window names at a different position?

Thank you.

1) I believe this is fixed up in our latest beta, can you try it out and let me know if the issue persists? Here's the link:

2) Yeah we've tried to fix this in the past but haven't had much luck. I just tested it out again and it seems to work with movements, but the program won't resize. I'll open this back up on our list.

3 a) The Window Text is a contains match, that doesn't support text query operators. It only matches to the currently focused tab as well. If you set your text to "New Tab", and had 3 tabs called "New Tab 1", "New Tab 2", and "New Tab 3", it would match if any of them were focused. In your case, you could add two separate entries in the profile for Fackbook and Instagram, yep!

b) Unfortunately this isn't really possible. If you add an entry that doesn't check the Window Text, it will still match and move the other ones. You could create one profile that matches without the window text and fire that first to move all your Firefox Windows, and create another profile that matches to specific text (like Facebook or Instagram) and fire that second to have it move those specific windows after.

Hope that helps!
