Trouble with Alt-Tab and AutoHotKey

I have multiple monitors. The main one is a 40" 4K monitor. I do use the split fuction of DisplayFusion to devide it in four quadrants. I then often open a lot of windows / programs into those quadrants (same location every time) and use ALT-Tab to tab through the programs opened in those quadrants. A killer-feature. I can't live without it. :) Thank you for that.
I also use AHK a lot. I do use it mainly to auto expand phrases for mails etc. Since a couple of versions (I do use beta versions also - but it happened in at least the last stable version of DisplayFusion also). I have the problem that whenever I use the ALT-Tab handler my AHK scripts stops responding and I have to manually reload them. This is 100% reproducable.
So because I mainly use AHK for phrase expanding - I also tried another program - breevy. But it also happens to that one. It seems that DisplayFusion by using Alt-Tab will cut the keyboard handler for programs like AHK. I know there has been a lot of work latly in making the Alt-Tab handler more robust as I have seen in the changelog. But somehow it seems that it now also breaks the use of AHK. At least with multiple monitors and by using the split function. Is there a workaround other than not using Alt-Tab? Because both features AHK and DisplayFusions Alt-Tab are my favurite time savers on my desktop machine.

Thanks

Thanks for the kind words!

Does it make any difference if you launch DisplayFusion first, vs launching AHK/Breevy first?

Just tested. Unfortunatly it doesn't matter which one I launch first. It immediately stops working after the first Alt-Tab

Ok, interesting! I just tested this here as well and I was able to reproduce the same results with Breevy. I've added this to our list to fix up and we'll be sure to post an update when we get it sorted out.

Thanks!
