Two issues in the last several Beta's

Hi Jon,

There are two issues I've noticed in the last several beta releases. I'm running Win 7 64bit with the latest updates and the latest WinSCP 4.3.3 (build 1340).

1.WinSCP does not restore from a minimized state on the DF taskbar by clicking on it. You have to right click on the DF taskbar entry and choose restore. When WinSCP is on the MS Taskbar it WILL restore when clicking on the taskbar entry but it will not minimize again by clicking on the same MS taskbar entry, instead you can see the dropshadow around the WinSCP window appear and disappear. This behavior on the MS taskbar is the same whether the DF taskbar is running or not.

2. (Maybe related) When moving files to the WinSCP window and it is minimized, you should be able to just touch the minimized window on the DF taskbar with your cursor that is holding the file to be transferred and the WinSCP window should pop up so you can drop the file in but it doesn't. This problem also occurs with the Windows Explorer window when it is on the DF taskbar. This "touch and drop" process works fine when the explorer window is on the MS taskbar.

Happy to help troubleshoot if I can,

I've tested and confirmed the bug with WinSCP on the DisplayFusion taskbar, but couldn't reproduce the issue with the Windows taskbar. Does the issue on the Windows taskbar occur even when DisplayFusion is fully closed?

As for the drag and drop on taskbar icons, you can enable support for it by turning on the "Focus window when mouse is dragged over Taskbar button" option on the Taskbar tab in the DisplayFusion settings.

Thanks!

Hi Keith,

Thanks for the tip about enabling the drag and drop, I don't know where I missed that, it seems like a new setting I missed? I don't remember having to set that before... not an uncommon occurrence for me ;)

With the WinSCP on the MS taskbar problem, it occurs even when DF is exited completely. I use the system tray icon exit, to shut DF down. To be clear the problem is that the WinSCP window will not minimize again by clicking on the MS taskbar icon again. You should be able to click repeatedly on the MS Taskbar button for the WinSCP window and the window should just open, close, open,close. Mine will open, but not minimize again doing this. It will minimize if you use the the WinSCP window's actual minimize button.

Regards,

Ok, I've definitely confirmed the issue with WinSCP on the DisplayFusion taskbar and we'll see what we can do to fix it up.

As for the issue with the Windows taskbar, it seems to work fine for me regardless of whether DisplayFusion is running or not. In your case since it happens even when DisplayFusion is not running, I don't think there's anything we can do about it. I'd suggest submitting the Windows taskbar bug to the WinSCP team, perhaps it's even related to the issue that causes it not to restore on our taskbar.

Thanks!

Keith,

Just installed the latest beta 6 and that fixes everything including the MS Taskbar funkiness I was seeing. No problems at all with that now. Maybe when I was hitting the DF system tray icon and clicking exit, DF was still running in some way? I never checked the Task Manager to see. All fixed now though! Thanks for the help

Regards,
~jim
