I have just discovered Fences, and it looks like it has great potential. I have begun a trial and so far so good. But I have noticed one thing, and I am hoping there is a way to deal with it.
Is there a way for me to configure Fences so that it will let me manually place icons inside each fence, the way I want them to be arranged, without it automatically moving each icon into the next available grid slot?
I have looked through several topics here in the forum, and nothing seems to address this already.
For instance, I may want a fence to look like this:
X1 X2 X3 X4
X5 X6 [ ] X7
... where the [ ] should just be a blank space. I like them lined up on a grid - but in some cases, I find it very pleasing and logical to have a space where an icon might otherwise go.
But right now, any time I try to place the X7 icon into the fence, the results look like this:
X1 X2 X3 X4
X5 X6 X7
I have tried selecting None for the Sort Fence By option, but that does not help. I also note that while in None, I am not able to untick the Maintain Sorting option. However, I did try switching to Sort Fence By Name, then unticked the Maintain Sorting option, then went back and selected the Sort Fence By None choice again. But, even that did not help. X7 always wants to move itself right next to X6.
Currently, I am trialing this on Windows 7 SP1 (v6.1 Build 7601). However, I will soon be moving over to my new system running Windows 10 Build 1909 (18363.778).
The Fences version I am running for the trial is v220.127.116.11 - the latest available.
I appreciate whatever insight you may be able to provide.
