I have two monitors and I mainly use this two shortcuts:
Alt+Ctrl+3 >> Restore Windows positions
Alt+Space >> Move active window to other monitor

How to roll back to previous version??

Now some pictures and comments:
pic 1 > freshly saved windows position
Pic 2 > Hit Alt+Ctrl+3 the gadget reposition themself -yellow evidenced
Pic 3 > detach reattach HDMI Cable
After hitting Alt+Ctrl+3 everything back to Pic 2.
B U T
pic 4 > windows after a reboot !!!! very strange
Pic 5 > result after Alt+Ctrl+3 *_*

Summary:
Windows repositioning is quite garbled at the moment.

How can I roll-back waiting you guys solve the issues??

Thanks
Alain

W10 1909 with last week update.

Could you send me a copy of your troubleshooting info? Here are the steps:

  • Open the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button
  • Reply with the file attached

You can download 9.6.1 here as well: https://www.binaryfortress.com/Data/Download/?OldVersion=1&DownloadID=8ff258bb-53f0-4c1a-9a1d-abb550f08f01

Ok, so the issue with the gadgets is that DisplayFusion didn't actually move them in 9.6.1, but now it is, and what you're seeing is that both of those Calendar gadgets have the same Process Name, Window Class, and Window Text, so they both end up matching the same entry in the profile. For this I would recommend removing the entries for the gadgets from the profile.

For the other issue where the windows are in the wrong spot after rebooting, I'm wondering if this is scaling related, as your two monitors have different scaling levels. Could you try updating to 9.7 again, then send me a debug log for this?

  • On the DisplayFusion Settings > Troubleshooting tab, change the Logging drop-down to "L1: Log Minimal" and click Apply
  • Reproduce the issue after reboot and note the time so we'll know where to check in the log file
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button on the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Reply with the file attached
  • Disable debug logging after sending the log

Bot reply make sense.. thanks

1) I'll remove Gadget from saved position,
then I will see if it's solved and report back.

2) It's an occasional issue. Scaling is allways a big issue in W10,
I suffer a lot for that. (not DF related)
I HAVE TO REMEMBER to follow your instructions next time it presents again.

Asap as I have the Log I'll send it back to you.

Thanks

Alain

Update on Editing:
a) it's not possible to sort by any column
b) Resizing columns then moving the editing windows, reset them to default

Note: Both Calendars and Clocks where moved each on a single fixed position.
So I did remove only gadget's lines with identical ComplexID, is that correct?

(I know ... 4 clocks!!! )
...
but whatever you've opened then moved around your real estate,
you should see at least one of them at any time

Thanks for the feedback on the edit windows, I'll add that to our list. And you're correct, you only really need to remove the ones that are exact duplicates

Great !
I can confirm that my restore (Alt+Ctrl+3) works now as before,
and as I expect it:
All the windows are moved in a correct position,
and the "multi" gadgets are left where they are.

Alain
PS: thanks to the editing I discovered that I was displaying a "CPU usage" trasparent graph while it was intended to be the "NET Troughput" graph

ok, this morning after booting up , I got again these strange windows.
I opened this page on browser to read instruction.
followed suit, but was unable to note "time"
because I did not understood what "time" to note

So this is the log of my actions:

Booted
Alt+Ctrl+3 (sent to positions)
opened browser
opened DF settings (partial screenshot 1)
done instructions
exported log (partial screenshot 2)

HiH
