Taskbar on second Monitor disapperas

I recently purchased DF on steam and I like it a lot, however I encountered one rather annoying problem:
I use three monitors and I want the taskbar only to be visible on the first and second monitor. I managed to hide the taskbar on the third monitor but the taskbar on the second monitor keeps disappearing every time I boot up windows, even though I enabled it.
It will appear for around 10 seconds and will then disappear and stay hidden. If I bring it back via hotkey it stays visible. It also disappears when I change any settings concerned with height or position on that taskbar, regardless of chosen setting (even if I just want to make it bigger or put to the top).
I attached a video I recorded right after startup. I did nothing at all with the computer while filming.
Any ideas how to solve this?

Sorry for the late reply, it seemed to work for some days but now it is back to not working again.

Hello,

Thanks for sending that over. It doesn't look like you have the DisplayFusion taskbars enabled, if you open up the DisplayFusion Settings window, is "Enable Multi-Monitor Taskbars" checked in the "Taskbar" tab?

Thanks!

When I just looked, it was not. However, I enabled it many times in the past and it seems to disable itself. Also, when I enabled it now again, the taskbar (which I had previously enabled manually via short cut, vanished again. Here is the log of how it is right now:

Hello,

Interesting, so after enabling that setting and disabling the taskbar on your 3rd monitor, does the taskbar on your second monitor instantly start disappearing? Does the issue only happen after you disable the taskbar on your 3rd monitor?

Thanks!

I did not disable the taskbar previously on my third monitor, I just disabled it once when I first setup the program and it has stayed hidden ever since (as intended).

Hello,

Interesting, it looks like you have a compatibility rule set in DisplayFusion to disable taskbars as well. If you disable that rule, does the issue persist?

Thanks!
