Re: Seeing more occurrences of windows blocking input

Latest beta build, 1928.

Acknowledged on the log. It doesn't seem likely to be a problem to have it always on, but I will clear it more often. It might have been convenient to have a "clear log on startup" flag.

Re: Seeing more occurrences of windows blocking input

I just saw this happen again. I had started a long process in Eclipse in one desktop and then moved to another desktop to do something else. After a while something finished in Eclipse, which made Dexpot jump me to that desktop, but when I clicked anywhere in the window, it just beeped at me. I'll h...

Desktop Preview window sometimes just goes away

I've noticed after installing 1928 that the Desktop Preview window sometimes just disappears. If I select Desktop Preview twice from the menu, it restarts.

It hasn't happened yet this morning. When it happens next I'll reply to this with a log file.

Re: Middle button DexControl doesn't do anything

Exiting Dexpot and restarting it fixed it. Looks like the upgrade process left it in an inconsistent state.

Re: Middle button DexControl doesn't do anything

Ok, then I have the old one. I'm on build 1928, which I assume means there's something wrong, as 1928 should have the new one, right?

Re: Middle button DexControl doesn't do anything

Hmm, well, I'll bet it's the full-screen preview, but when I look in my settings, I don't see any way to set the binding for DexControl. When I click on DexControl in "Plugins and Extras" (which is checked), the "Configure" and "Define hotkeys" buttons are insensitive. ...

Middle button DexControl doesn't do anything

The DexControl info page, at http://dexpot.de/dexcontrol.php describes a couple of features that don't appear to do anything in my build 1928. Specifically, when I displayed DexControl preview, I tried clicking my scroll wheel inside one of the preview windows, and it appeared to do nothing. There a...

Seeing more occurrences of windows blocking input

I've recently been starting some processes that make my laptop work pretty hard. As a result, I think I'm seeing a symptom that is likely specific to Dexpot. At the point that I started to write this note, I had two windows, MS Outlook (2007) and Eclipse (Indigo) that when I click the mouse on the w...

Re: dexpot loses my windows

I am unable to make my test case fail. I'd say that bug is taken care of. Do you believe this fix will have any impact on the other two problems I've seen: * Process Explorer randomly unminimizing itself on desktop switches * Some windows of "busy" applications get duplicated to other desk...

I imagine that new test case is repeatable, so I'll try doing that again later day and upload a log file.

Re: build 1805-wk2 causes a window to restore on every switc

Here it is. I would point out that saving my profile forced me to restart Dexpot and my web browser. I brought up the settings dialog on desktop 2, where my web browser was located, and when I clicked "OK" on the "Save As" dialog, it seemed to empty the desktop, including the des...

Re: dexpot loses my windows

I just verified that the dexpot.exe attached to that previous note with the label "1805-wk3" is reporting a build number of "1805-wk2+ppp". I've done this twice now, with the same result. I've copied the executable over the existing "dexpot.exe" in the Dexpot distributi...

Re: dexpot loses my windows

With this build, my "load test" was able to cause windows to disappear very quickly, but that's not normal usage. My "load test" has my 3x3 grid, and I start my messaging app with two windows in desktop 8. I have Alt-Win with Arrow-Left and Arrow-Right bound to switch to desktops...

Just so it's clear, I still have the problem with my Process Explorer window restoring on desktop switches.

Re: dexpot loses my windows

I'm surprised that not even exiting Dexpot restores those lost windows.

This is happening too often for me. I'm going to have to turn off Dexpot for now. I'll be glad to try test builds as soon as they're available.
