v21.30.0037 - 2020-12-14 15:56
    * Monitors: v21.30.0036 failed as well. So that's it for now. The app does 
      not support auto-adjusting itself natively to the resolution of any 
      non-first monitor. Removed all code that tried.
      If you want auto-adjustment in a multi-monitor situation you should use the 
      compatibility settings provided by Windows instead. Find them in the 
      right-click menu of XYplorer.exe under Properties / Compatibility tab: 
      enable “Override High DPI scaling behavior” and set the Scaling Behavior 
      to "System (Enhanced)".
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

:!: Note that BETA versions are work in progress and might contain fresh bugs. You have been warned.
It's a good idea to backup your complete XYplorer settings (menu File | Settings Special | Backup Application Data Folder...)
before running a new BETA version. This will also help in fixing any fresh bugs.

    * Monitors: Postponed the idea of native on-the-fly-updating the layout to 
      a new resolution on monitor switch. It's totally possible, but a LOT of 
      work for which I need prolonged access to two monitors, which I currently 
      don't have.
      Instead there is a new idea for now: This beta will remember the monitor 
      and DPI it was on when last closed, and when restarted in a multi-monitor 
      situation, and the last monitor was not the first, and the last DPI is 
      identical to the DPI of that non-first monitor now, then it will assume 
      that it ends up on this monitor again and should correctly adjust to this 
      environment.
      So now you can drag it to another monitor, then close and restart, and it 
      should look good. Not as cool as on-the-fly but at least a walkable way.

    ! Monitors: Attempts to natively cope with a cross monitor move failed and 
      are stopped for now. In such situation you should use the compatibility 
      settings provided by Windows instead.
    ! Fixed various broken layout glitches related to failed attempts at the 
      above.

    ! Startup: On resolutions > 100% it grew on every restart. Fixed. The 
      original idea here was to adjust the window size when starting up on a 
      resolution different from last exit. That should work now.

    * SC updatescreenmetrics: Totally rewrote the whole shebang. It's still not 
      100% perfect yet but should be close. So, when you think the layout is 
      broken because XY did not catch up with the current monitor resolution, do 
      this:
        updatescreenmetrics;
      But it might not even be necessary because of this fix:
    ! Startup: In a multi-monitor situation, detecting the current monitor did 
      not work out correctly because it cannot be done as long as the window 
      does not exist. Now it's done after the window is created. You will see it 
      adjust to reality very quickly on startup if such adjustment is necessary.

    ! Custom Event Actions | After browsing a folder: Event was caught a little 
      too late (after any Autosize Columns). Fixed.
    > Note that any message box or other popup window will cause a list paint, 
      so "After browsing a folder" will be "After painting the file list" if it 
      runs a script that opens a window.
    ! Custom Event Actions: Remembering the action did not work correctly anymore 
      since section headers being in the list. Fixed.
    ! Custom Event Actions: "Jump to Setting..." did not work correctly anymore 
      for CEA since section headers being in the list. Fixed.
    ! List: Sort order symbols much too large in Thumbs and Tiles views. Fixed.
    ! Startup: There is an issue with determining the correct startup monitor. 
      Added some lines to the debuglog.

    + Custom Event Actions: Right-click any Script cell to find some new 
      Copy Script/Paste Script options in the context menu.
    * Custom Event Actions: Now the CEA list has a full grid.
  >>> From now on the beta versions are compiled with special debug code that 
      will pop error messages where in earlier versions it would just crash. 
      This will obviously help tracking down any crash bugs.
      The price: The beta release is about 1 MB larger and slightly slower than 
      the official release.

    * Screen: Implemented a new way to determine the current screen DPI in a 
      multi-monitor setup. Works from Win8 onwards. Try #2. The previous 
      implementation had a mistake.
    * Custom Event Actions: Added section "Changing Locations" and made three 
      browsing related events instead of the two we had before. Each has two 
      actions, "None" and "Run script".
    ! Custom Event Actions | Middle-click on white in folder tree: Event was not 
      caught at all. Fixed.
    ! Custom Event Actions | Before changing locations: The event was caught a 
      little too late. Some preparations for browsing were already done. Fixed.
    ! Custom Event Actions | After changing locations: The "Run script before 
      painting" action was called after painting under certain conditions. Fixed.
    ! Custom Event Actions | Double-click on tab: The "Run Script" action was 
      missing. Fixed.

      missing. Fixed.
