3.7 Released!

Hi Corey,

Ran a tourney last night with 3.7 where I had the "Game window" maximised on a second display and the TD command window on the primary display.
It went pretty flawlessly :) with the exception of a few oddities:

a) Occasionally, the very top of a pre-defined page which was displayed on the "Game Window" (i.e. player movement) would have what looked like a title bar - refreshing/re-selecting the page made it disappear.
b) Trying to export the results using the PokerDiy option (probably also occurs with the other export options), I was unable to change the filename as the focus on the file picker dialog kept on being removed  :( - presumably as a result of the clock being updated on the maximised "Game Window" on the other display - minimising the "Game Window" and moving it back to the primary display allowed the file picker to work normally.

Thanks for your hard work in producing such a superb application!

Thanks for the info!

a) This is a known Electron issue.  It's actually listed in the TD release notes.  It happens whenever another window is opened or closed.  So if you're performing TD work in the Settings window, any time another window is opened or closed (for example, you're buying players into the tournament) you might briefly see a "title bar" at the top of the Game window, even though it is in full-screen mode.  Strangely, it looks like it came from the time of Windows XP, even though you might be using Windows 7, 8 or even 10.  In my experience, it's only a flash.  Occasionally it lasts for a few seconds, but I've never seen it stick around long enough for me to even try to refresh the screen.  If you've got the Game window full-screened on your main display, you might also see the Windows taskbar appear briefly.  Best to full-screen the Game window on a different display, if you're running with multiple displays.

b) That's very odd.  It does not happen to me, and I've never heard of this issue.  There's no code to continually focus on any window, so I'm pretty confused as to what could cause that.  There used to be, in previous versions, as a way to prevent the Windows screen saver from activating.  But now that's no longer necessary, as the application is able to tell Windows to turn it off while the app is running.  Are you able to reproduce this?

Yes, repeatable.
I'm using a Windows 7 virtual machine (VMware).
Move the Game window to a second display and maximise it.
On the TD window, select "Export" and then pick one of the export options.
When the file picker initially comes up you can type into the filename field ok.. but if you select a subdirectory the file picker dialog loses focus, by clicking in the filename field you can get focus back, but it is lost almost immediately (approx every second) - typing a filename is not possible.
Move the Game window onto the same display as the TD window and the file picker works perfectly.

Corey Cooper:
That is wild.  Thanks for the steps.  The key is to select another folder.  Until you do that it works fine.  Also it appears to happen only when the file dialog is on a display different from the Game window.  If I reverse the situation, maximizing the Game window on my main display and configuring the preferences to have the Settings window open on the secondary display, I see the same thing.

*Edit: Doesn't happen on my Windows 10 PC, only on my Windows 7 PC.

Had an issue last week when I ran our weekly poker night.
The Game Window would go to some crazy resolution when dragged to the second screen.
As you can see the layout has done something crazy..
I ended up having to duplicate my screen rather than extend to get it to work, but meant if I left the settings window open it would cover the game window.
