Shadow (outer glow) of window is visible in all virtual desktops

Ribbon for WPF Forum

Windows 10 has a feature to create multiple virtual desktops. When a ribbon application is opened which uses the metro theme, the shadow (or outer glow) is visible on all virtual desktops. So when you switch to a different desktop the application is hidden but the shadow is still visible. And when your cursor reaches the border, it allows to resize the application. When you click the border, you automatically switch to the desktop where the application is opened in.

Disabling the shadow probably solves the issue, but I would rather have my shadow back...

Best regards, Tobias Lingemann.

Hi Tobias,

Odd, we had fixed this back in 2016.  We played with it a bit more and found another way to prevent the shadow from showing on other virtual desktops.  If you'd like to test a preview build with the fix, please write our support address and mention this thread.

Note we just published a maintenance release build 685 yesterday so this change won't go in officially until the next one.

The latest build of this product (v24.1.2) was released 27 days ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
