Using latest beta.

I've had Cinema 4D (11.5) running with main window on monitor one and 5 pallets on monitor two. Because DF puts menubar buttons on all of the pallets, I have DF set to not put buttons on Cinema 4D.

Had a particular processor intensive render going on so I minimized Cinema 4D and lo and behold I see all the 'hidden' menubar buttons. Apparently DF tucks then in behind the windows (sneaky!) so you can't see them.

Cinema 4D eventually locked up, but closing it down got rid of the DF menubar buttons.

Sometimes, you're never sure if a program has locked up or is just taking it's time, so minimizing it may leave DF buttons on your screen...

This isn't a big issue, but thought you'd want to see it.

I'll do something about the buttons hovering while the application is frozen, but that app should never have had the buttons. :( That seems to be the big bug here. Are you sure you pointed to the right EXE file when setting up the Compatibility option? :)

Well, actually I had just upgraded to Cinema 4D r11.5, so it may have been pointing to the wrong (old) executable. I'll remove the reference, reset and test some more.

I guess the buttons staying around while the app is frozen is the main issue here tho...

Give Beta 4 a try with the frozen application, it has much better support for "hung window detection". :)

Will do, thanks for the effort!

No worries, just follow-up if anything happens again. :)
