xx Wallpaper not displaying correctly
« Thread started on: Apr 27th, 2013, 08:34am »

Hi Tom -

I think I have a minor bug to report, that would be nice to have fixed when you get time. In the latest ZBar (just downloaded today to double check this - v.85), I have found that the wallpaper is not created correct when using 2 monitors.

I'm running Windows 8 Pro with Media Center, with 1 monitor in portrait (right one) and 1 in landscape orientation (left one). I'm not sure orientation or left/right matters tho.

The specific condition that triggers this bug is to have the bottom of my left landscape monitor aligned with the bottom of the right portrait monitor. When this happens, both wallpaper pictures are created incorrectly, with the left landscape monitor showing a black bar at the bottom and only the bottom 2/3rds or so of the picture above that. The right portrait monitor has the top 1/4 of the wallpaper picture at the bottom. I'm running both sizes in mode 1.

The workaround for this is to have the left landscape monitor top aligned with the top of the right portrait monitor. In this case, both images show up correctly (as long as I reopen the wallpaper config screen after re-alignment, then click apply).

I hope this makes sense. A pic would be 1000 words here, and I have some screenshots showing it working correct one way and buggy the other. Is there a way to get this to you, if you think it's helpful?

Thanks for all that you do here Tom!

Sure, screenshots are going to help a lot here, as you say...

You can email them to the address on the web site if you like?

Can you answer a couple of questions as well. Does the arrangement of screens shown in the wallpaper dialog of ZBar match reality?

Does it also match what Windows show you when you right-click the desktop?
