I am trying Actual Multiple Monitors. When a window bumps the top of a screen it causes the screen to dim out. I don't like this and would like to disable it.

thanks

Another thing that seems related, sometimes I find a window will get lodged with the top control bar above the screen surface so I am unable to move it. I have to stop AMM in order to reveal a little of the bar to regain control of it.

Well, OK, the dim out looks exactly like UAC. see dim1.jpg, it is quite annoying because I seem to hit the top of the screen quite often. The screen dims and there a thin glowing bar all around the perimeter of the screen. The second one I can't reproduce intentionally, it happens spontaneously, but it is simply the top control bar of a window disappears behind the uppermost boundary of the screen, so mouse cursor control over the window is lost. The only way to regain control of the window is to pause the program. Then the window drops just enough to reveal the bar and retake control over the window. If I close the window using the taskbar button then re-open it, it is still lodged behind the upper boundary.

Here's an example of the second issue. Notice the email client in the right monitor, the top control bar is hidden making it impossible to move or control the window. It always happens in the secondary monitor, never the primary. If I Stop AMM the window drops down enough to grab the bar.

Should I expect anyone from Actual Tools to respond to these issues?

Hello Lee,

Yes you should. However, the 2 employees who are responsible for support are currently ill, as I understood from Actual Tools when I received an e-mail regarding a bug report. Actual Tools is a small company, so right now they are really shorthanded. It may take some time before they answer, as I have not seen them present on the forum for a while. I hope it is nothing serious. Usually they are rather fast and good with their support from my experience, so please be patient.

Best regards.

Pim, thanks for the reply
The first issue, dimming when a window goes outside the screen boundary, I believe is by design, (coordinates also appear) but my opinion is that one ought to be able to shut that off. The second I think is a bug, and I have discovered a workaround, Win+Keypad* Maximize to Desktop restores access to window controls.

Hello Lee

About the first issue: it seems to be the Aero snap feature of our program. You can disable it here: Options > Window Snapping > Aero Snap.

About the second: does it happen with all applications?

What applications have you noticed the problem with?

Best regards.

Thank you for the Aero snap tip.

The other one, I don't recall, it hasn't happened in a couple of weeks. The last time was when I took the screenshot above, and that was the email app Seamonkey.
