Websharing a mirror window

Firstly, thanks for the continued support and development on DF, it's really great.

Lately I've started using the mirror selected area function when I'm sharing my screen via teams so that people with regular monitor resolutions are able to see properly. Similar to what was described here. https://www.displayfusion.com/Discussions/View/split-monitor-sharing-screen/?ID=029e7796-bcd4-484d-b825-9bee16154bbd

I've gone so far as to create a script that mirrors a certain portion of my screen and move it out of the way. It generally works great.

I noticed today however that when the mirror window is shared, it can't be behind any other windows, otherwise the portion of the mirror window that is behind another window is similarly obscured in teams. See the two attached images where I'm sharing (via teams) a mirror window, which is behind notepad. One image is what somebody viewing the screenshare via teams sees, the other is what is displayed on my monitor.

This is not the normal behavior when sharing a window only, which shows the window contents regardless of whether that window is in front of or behind other windows. I tested it with the display fusion settings window and it worked as expected.

I'm not sure if this is a bug, a limitation, or something I could fix with a change in settings, but I wanted to see if anybody else has encountered this or had a solution.

Thanks! If you enable this option in the Advanced Settings, then restart the mirror window, does it make any difference?

Just tried, the result was unchanged.

Ok, thanks for trying that! I've added this to our list to investigate further and see if we can fix it up. We'll be sure to post an update if/when we're able to get it sorted out.

Thanks!
