Hello. Great product! Thank you, guys.
I run WinXP Pro/SP2. I have got Dexpot configured to have only two screens.
You can see more details of my settings lower down in this post.
The situation is that I have an icon on Desktop1 and a different icon in the same position in Desktop2.
When I use the hotkey to copy one of those icons from Desktop1 to Desktop2,
then one icon completely overlaps the other on Desktop2.
When I close Dexpot by selecting only Desktop1, all the icons in Desktop2
which are in the same position as some icons in Desktop1 will not be visible.
In fact, some icons from Desktop2 are completely invisible on the standard desktop
until I set Align To Grid on the standard desktop. But then the positions are all a mess!
Could you kindly advise me how to avoid this. Maybe I need to work in a different way?
Below you can see my settings.
Thank you for any help.
============ MY SETTINGS =============
I have saved the icon positions in my Dexpot profile to be the way I like them to be when I work.
This means that some icons on Desktop1 overlap those on Desktop2 in my saved configuration.
Of course, if I use the Hotkey for Restore Icons then it does not help.
I have got the following selected in the Dexpot Settings dialog.
(a) In Appearance:
I have got with 'One Icon Per Desktop'
(b) In Switching Desktops > Desktop Elements > Icons:
I have got 'Customize desktop icons',
I have got 'Align To Grid'
I have got 'Use Move And Copy Hotkeys To Distribute The Icons'
(c) In Switching Desktops > Desktop Elements > Background:
I have got 'Customize Background' ,
I have got 'Apply Manual Changes To Dexpot Configuration'
========= END OF MY SETTINGS ==========
