Minor Fixes and Improvements

  • Favorite Folders and Recent Folders title buttons are now available in:

    • WordPerfect file dialogs

    • Directory Opus lister windows (please note that the Lister title bar option in the "Preferences - Display Options" must be set to Show the full folder path to enable the proper tracking of recent folders)

    • Total Commander windows (please note that the Show command line option in the "Configuration - Layout" must be enabled to make the title buttons compatible with Total Commander)

  • Now, when you minimize a window to a screen icon, and the screen icon is not permanent or does not have saved position - the window will follow the icon if you move it somewhere on the screen. For example, minimize a window to screen icon via AltMin title button, then drag the icon to another place and restore the window - it will be restored so the mouse pointer is on the AltMin title button again (thus, you can quickly minimize the window again).

  • Compatibility with the following programs is improved: Logitech SetPoint, WordPerfect 12, SmartDraw 12, HTML-Kit Tools.

  • Multi-monitor Taskbar now is compatible with Start Menu X and Classic Shell Start Menu.

  • Now the Recent Folders and Favorite Folders lists can be invoked via grouping button's context menu (i.e. when the title buttons of the same name are disabled).

  • Start button in Actual Taskbar now looks correct in higher screen DPIs on Windows Vista and higher.

  • The order of monitors used in the Move to Monitor feature now is the same as in the system.

  • The Move to monitor selector dialog now displays the system monitor numbers.

  • Desktop Divider now reacts on temporary deactivation even if the window is not moving.

  • When you left-click the Put into Divider Tile title button, the mouse pointer now follows this button so that you can quickly put the window into a desired tile by simply making several consecutive clicks, without moving the mouse.

  • The Minimize-to-Screen icons now react on drag-n-drop attempts: they restore the minimized window so that you can drop there the dragged item.
