Recently, Fences has undergone a large update from fences 2 to 3 and has added numerous amounts of features and things to tinker with.
However, I feel like I am beta testing a product I paid $10 for. That isn't very much money and I just wanted something to customize my desktop with, which is what I received but at this point I feel like I am managing this program more than I am using it.
Basically, the product lacks the basic functioning grounds for it to be used. So far, I have encountered the following;
1. The recycle bin may disappear at any time, and simply vanish from your desktop.
(Temp. fix: Create recycle bin shortcut and replace it)
2. "Rolled up" fences will spill icons/folders/etc out of their fence boundary when actions are taken with the right click context menu on the desktop.
[(Ex: Right click photo within a rolled up fence and delete it will cause other files or folders within other fences or the same fence to spill out onto the regular desktop area) this may also be a bug regardless the fence is rolled up or not]
3. Getting fences to match your screen resolution and icon size is tedious if you want fences to take up an entire horizontal or vertical row/column of your monitor.
(Different fences with different names are hard to control and match up)
4. Icons do not load in rolled up fences until you roll over that specific fence first.
(Ex: When you start your computer, rolled up fences that contain icons will be blank/white for a few seconds, and do not load on their own until moused over)
Until these issues are fixed, I may just eschew from Fences all together.
What is currently being done to the software? What fixes are being undergone, changes or even features added?
Hopefully some updates can be pushed out for some of these issues, that not only I, but many other users have had as well from a quick few searches.
Maybe that came on a little bit too strong, not really what I intended though.
I appreciate those who do relay information back to the developers, monitor the forums, respond to support tickets... thank you for doing that.
After reading my post a few more times it sounds like I am more of an angry complaining customer more than I am a one that simply cares about the product.
This program is really amazing, and there is nothing else really like it out there, so I guess thats my excuse for sounding like an asshole? I would like for this piece of software to be good.
Either way, thank you for your time.
