I can now drop icons into rolled up fences. Thank you
I still have the click lag with the beta.
I have to double click my desktop to hide fences every time I reboot. Yall gotta fix the thing where always show icons at startup is CHECKED by default. It should not be checked. Quick hide is useless if you have to set it every reboot, guys.
We went through this last update....come on.
My apologies. I was very cranky last night. Rough day.
Thanks for Simplified Chinese Localization!
However, still an issue: https://forums.stardock.com/477570
Same here, basically all issues described in https://forums.stardock.com/482822/Slower-Desktop-Navigation-when-activating-Fences are still existing.
When are you guys going to add a disable option for the icon desktop movement animations? I like my standard Windows snaps. Including features without ways to disable them is a pretty bad developing ethnic.
All in all, thanks for the update.
One more simple addition to the Fences button creation feature to allow no click/button drag. Basically to disable it completely until you want to use it again.
Also possibly another addition to add a option to set a key + Left/Right Mouse Drag.
So I got the prompt update in the launcher for this, and when i tried to update, it asked for Disk 2. Which I have no idea where the heck that would be, or why its asking for another disk. Then I clicked cancel, and it asked for disk 3, and I clicked cancel, and again it asked for another disk, and so on and so forth until finally it failed the update. Any ideas?
As someone else noted, "I can now drop icons into rolled up fences."
However, if I hold shift down because I want to move instead of copy my file into a shortcut inside my rolled-up fence that points to a folder on another drive, then the rolled-up fence still remains rolled up rather than expanding when the file is dragged over the fence.
This functionality used to work in older versions. I use it quite frequently. With the beta version instead of doing a move I have to do a copy and then remember to execute a separate delete.
Many thanks for the progress. But can you please fix this scenario with dragging and dropping into a rolled-up fence while holding the shift key down, too? Until you do, this dropping-inside-rolled-up-fences functionality is still a downgrade from the prior release.
Thanks for reporting this. We'll look into it.
Anything on being able to disable the icon animation feature and completely disabling Drag n Click to Make a Fence hotkey?
Still same problem, big click lag with beta!!
Work from desktop nearly impossible
Please see reply #12 here: https://forums.stardock.com/482822
Updated from 3.04 and rebooted and my system hung due to Microsoft Security Essentials detecting Fences.exe as a trojan
Manually added the .exe to the safe list and rebooted and it works now.
- Anyone else had a similar issue? (Windows 7 x64, Security Essentials v4.10.209) definitions up to date
AWESOME - THANK YOU!!!!
New Feature: the Backspace key now works to back out of a folder within a fence, (but not my mouse back and forward buttons? that work in explorer) - Any chance of adding this feature?
Fence Title icon still moves - would be nice if this could be fixed to ease navigation also
Yep.. version beta 3.05.. extremely slow response to double-clip to hide / un-hide fences/icons.. 2 - 3 sec Lag time.. Also.. Still extremely slow Boot Time loading desktop with fences installed.. with about 50+ icons in 6 different fences..
I've installed through steam but it installed 3.04, and there is no beta available. How can i install 3.05 steam version?
