Settings window fixed size ver 4.0.1 Win7 64bit

Can't maximize the DisplayFusion Settings window even though monitor is large enough. Causes me to use scroll bars which is not user friendly. Each action after a scroll causes the window to go to top left position.

Tried using Settings Window Location for DisplayFusion but I can't get it to use the size (maximize, all windows) but the location is being honored. Used the DisplayFusion application as the application to set Window Location.

I am a new user, so maybe I need some education on how to do this.

The DisplayFusion Settings window is always a fixed size, and can't be maximized. However, if there's room on the screen for it, there shouldn't be any scroll bars.

Do you have font scaling enabled in Windows 7? If so, what percentage is it set to?

Thanks!

Keith,

Display is a 1680 x 1050 so size is not too small.

The font size is set to Medium 125%. Old age and tri-focals!

I have seen the settings screen w/o the scroll bars on occaision (twice in the last dozen or so uses). The last time I saw this, I closed DisplayFusion and immediately reopened it only to have the scroll bars reappear. No idea why it worked correctly; can't reproduce.

Keith,

A possible clue.

Just opened settings with the scroll bars. Went to Wallpaper to adjust colors. When I returned to settings, the scroll bars were gone.

Ok, thanks Bruce! I'll do some testing at 1680x1050 with 125% font scaling and we'll see what we can find out. I'll keep you posted when I have some more news.

Thanks!

Keith,

I went back and retested with 100%. It works OK on all three of my monitors but the text size is too small. Different than when I tried this before.

When I went back to 125% the note that some windows might be too large for the monitors appeared on the font size screen. This time at 125% the settings works OK on my large monitor but the smaller monitors (both 1024 X 76 don't show scroll bars but spill over onto the next monitor. Definitely not what I was experiencing before. But after closing DisplayFusion and reopening it, the behavior is back to fitting on all monitors but with scrollbars. Poltergeist!

Would logging be useful? How do I proceed if yes.

Ok, thanks for trying that out Bruce! I don't need any debug logs from you yet, as I'll test a few things out here first. If I do need any more info, I'll be sure to let you know.

Thanks!

Ok, I think I have an idea of what's going on. Could you copy the info from the DisplayFusion Settings > Troubleshooting tab, and attach it here?

Thanks!

Keith,

Copy of troubleshooting:

Code

Thanks Bruce! It looks like what's happening, is that if one of the 1024x768 monitors is Primary, and you open the Settings from that monitor, then it will be sized to fit the monitor with scroll bars.

If you open the Settings from the 1680x1050 monitor, it should be the correct size.

However, when the 1680x1050 monitor is Primary, opening the Settings from the 1024x768 monitor won't size it with scroll bars.

So, long story short, we're going to look into this some more to see if we can make it behave a little more intuitively

Thanks!

Keith,

Thanks.

I will continue as is until you get something more "intuitive".

The spill over condition is worse than the scrollbar condition.

Like the product, and like the tech support.

Keith,

Installed Ver 4.1 but it did not correct the problem.

We haven't had a chance to look into this yet, but I'll be sure to post an update when we do.

Thanks!
