Wallpaper Incorrect Vertical Offset

Avatar from Gravatar.com

Hi,

I have two identical monitors, the main one in landscape and the second, to the right, in portrait and have separate images on each. I have just adjusted the position of the second monitor to align the bottom with the bottom of the main monitor. This means that the top of the secondary monitor is now above the top of the main monitor, and significantly the vertical offset is negative (-256). The wallpaper is now displayed incorrectly: the bottom of each image has shifted upwards, I'm guessing by 256 pixels.

I am running DisplayFusion v1.4.1 with two monitors at 1280 x 1024.

Thanks for all the information and screenshots - that should help me nail down this bug. There have been a few reports of wallpapers not being applied properly and this will help me get to the bottom of it.

Sorry, 1 more thing. Can you take a screenshot of your complete desktop so I can see how the wallpaper is looking once it is applied?

Thanks!

This is very strange. It looks like your "CustomWallpaper" file is correct in your first post, but your resulting wallpaper looks messed up in your newest post. Sorry to bug you again, but it looks like the ones you have posted already don't belong together, as the images are applied differently (the elephant one for example looks centred in one and fitted in the 2nd one. Can you repost a screenshot of your desktop and the CustomWallpaper file that gets generated along with it?

Thanks,
Jon

I must admit that I have regenerated my wallpaper this morning following the creation of a new profile. However, the CustomWallpaper file still looks similar to the one I posted; the only difference is that I have chosen a different crop of the Lion, so the nose is nearer to the left hand edge.

I have attached the new custom wallpaper generated.

The desktop image was created using "Print Screen". Note that the main monitor is in landscape, the secondary is portrait. On the main monitor I see the black area immediately above the task bar; the black area above the elephants is off the top of the main monitor. The elephant image is centred in both.

I think this is part of the problem.

Note: I do see the wallpaper displayed correctly, as shown in the "Desktop Wallpaper" dialog, for a brief period when logging on, and until the screen saver kicks in when locking the PC. Could this be a problem with the Radeon X1700 FSC card or driver?

Hi,
I am having the exact same problem, with the same symptoms. I am running a 1280 X 800 and a 1680 X 1050 with the smaller resolution laptop as my primary screen,

hope you can work this one out
cheers

Sean: Does this problem occur immediately when you apply the wallpaper, or only after coming out of sleep/standby/hibernation modes?

Thanks,
Jon

This problem has been fixed and will be available in DisplayFusion v1.4.2 which should be released sometime this weekend. :-)

Thanks,
Jon

The new version of DisplayFusion (v1.4.2) should correct this issue. It is available for download here:

Jon,

I'm afraid v1.4.2 hasn't fixed the problem for me. The generated custom wallpaper is the same as above and the display is unchanged.
