Win 7 DF 3.1.4 bugs

I have a few bugs that seem to pop up intermittently.
1. I have the middle button click on the title bar set to move to the other monitor. Occasionally it stops working. The only way I have found to get it working again is to close DF and then restart.

2. Excel continues to have odd behavior. Excel runs usually on my secondary monitor, but I have it pinned on the primary to launch it. When I have more than one spreadsheet open, some of the taskbar icons will switch over to the primary monitor when minimized. I then have to go to the taskbar icon on the primary monitor to get them maximized again.

egmiley, I have noticed this (#1) too - but I have found the problem to be with Logitech's SetPoint utility. If I close and re-open the SetPoint utility it also starts working again. I cannot pinpoint it, but it seems to occur most frequently after I have either been playing a game (which I have now eliminated as I close down most things that I don't use, including DF, when gaming (GRID and NFS:SHIFT like me all the better for it) but also occasionally when coming out of sleep / hibernate mode.

Are you by chance also using Logitech's SetPoint utility?
I am I.

Yes I am using Logitech Setpoint. I just upgraded to the latest version 4.8. I will see if the problem persists or if the new drivers help.

Both of these issues should be fixed in the next version of DisplayFusion. If you're feeling adventurous you can give the beta version a try here:

I have been using 4.8 since it came out, and I still occasionally experience this issue (as I said I have minimized the cause b/c my mouse is set to never be turned off in power management since it is allowed to wake the computer, which *should* be the default setting) and b/c I kill DF when playing games, but it still happens every once in a blue moon. Still, the newer SP may help somewhat (if you haven't already, you might try completely removing the SP software and then clean installing 4.8 - since I am on a Windows 7 machine now with a fresh install of the OS, my SP install is already clean).

Also, if you would like to look an alternate XML settings file for many popular Logitech mice, take a look at http://uberoptions.net/ - I use it b/c I don't use hte middle button on my MX Revolution for search - I use it for the middle button, and it makes life 1000000000X easier, as the click on the hyperscroll wheel is by default set to enable / disable the hyperscroll (which I also use daily).

Jon, as always - you're the man. SP can be quite troublesome, but to know that you have a fix rocks.
I am I.

I also found another bug on this beta:

sometimes after you restore programs minimized or after exit from full screen with wmp a little window square box like "2 x "2 flashes, just for a bit I know is DF cus they only thing I can get to read (desapear very fast) is the window title that says: DisplayFusion. Like I just said it just apear and desapear very fast but enough to notice and is kinda annoying.

I know is a beta but Im just giving my feedback

@caotico69: Thanks for the heads-up, I'll check this out before the final release.
