Thank you for Beta 6!

I had just been lamenting that I haven't been seeing a new version of DF lately... then I come to the website and find 6 beta versions. :D

My favorite change is this:

Quote:
Changed: Windows are now moved so that they retain their "restore" location when un-maximizing them (Windows 7 ONLY). Some applications do not like this, so there is an option on Compatibility tab to exclude certain applications from using this new method


This behaviour has been bugging me for a long time; it was also one of the things I remember Ultramon doing better. Finally it is fixed! Now when I middle-click maximized windows, there are no more annoying resize-animations. Awesome!

I also have to say taskbar button grouping is looking very promising. I haven't enabled it right now, because I'm waiting for a "Combine when taskbar is full" option, but I'm sure it'll come eventually. Thanks!

OK, I tried Beta 8 and now Beta 9 -- The annoying window animation is back.

Is that because of this change?

  • Fixed: Removed the new window movement function, it was causing too many compatibility issues, DisplayFusion will still remember a window's restore position

If so, what were the compatibility issues exactly? I hadn't encountered anything wrong, maybe it only affects some applications? I just want to know what problems to expect, since right now I prefer to stick with Beta 6.

Under certain conditions I had many applications fail to move properly (Outlook 2010, Photoshop... etc). Big name applications that many people use, so I couldn't leave in the buggy window movement code, sorry. DisplayFusion will still remember the window's size for restoring, but it needs to go through the animation for the sake of certain applications.

Hm, I use Outlook (2007) daily and Photoshop (CS2) as well, and haven't seen any issues... Can you make it an option?

Good news! Beta 10 has just been released and has an Advanced Setting to enable an experimental window move method that eliminates window animation:
