Missing Exclude this icon from Fences' quick-hide [Fences 2.0 Final]

I'm using Fences 2.0 Final, the Exclude this icon from Fences' quick-hide context menu is missing from icons outside fences. Is this intended? Because the original Fences can exclude icons from quick-hide even if they are not inside a fence.

I can confirm this. Same problem for me on the 2.0 Final (and already on the Beta).

Quoting ,
Is this intended?

 

It would appear so, and for me it's a deal-breaker.

Sorry guys, I know you can't please everyone all the time, but I'll be digging up my Fences 1.0 setup file from where ever I backed it up to and won't be shelling out for 2.0 until this issue is fixed.

Quoting GBot,
It would appear so,

I don't expect it's intended.

Looks like it 'fell off' the list of functionality.  I'd imagine it'll be back...

A workaround that I found is for you to place the icon inside a fence first then exclude it from quick-hide, after that remove it from the fence. The icon then will be excluded from quick-hide even if it is not inside a fence. It works for me. I will be using this workaround until Stardock fixes it.

Interesting workaround....will likely lead to a viable solution....

Unfortunately I have the same problem but the workaround doesn't work for me.

It might have to do with upgrading from Fences 1 to Fences 2 as I had a few items on the desktop that were excluded from the quick hide while I was using Fences 1. After upgrading to fences 2 these excluded items were excluded from the quick hide and I had no way to un-exclude them. Even placing these excluded icons into a fence and using quick hide doesn't hide the icon.

The quick-hide feature doesn't work on some program shortcuts. I can not recognize the reason for this behavior.

Am having the same problem after upgrading to newest version.  Recycle bin shortcut will not exclude.  Have tried putting it inside a fence, excluding that fence, and then dragging out the icon, but no go.

Also, there is no right click option to exclude individual icons, only fences. I have emailed support.

Hi werewolf, what I do in my case is drag the recycle bin icon inside a fence, then right click the icon (not the fence) then select exclude icon, after that drag the icon out of the fence.

I just updated my Fences to 2.01, the problem is still there. I hope they fix this soon.

I use the new version of fences 2.01, but the problem still exist. Only the application Nero Burning Rom has the option "Exclude this icon from Fences quick-hide".

What is about the mark <'> behind Fences? Looks strange for me. Could it be that the quick-hide problem is a language pack  problem?

Me too.  Over three weeks and it hasn't been fixed?  Wasn't caught in testing?  Hard to understand.

It would seem they are too busy counting the cash from their Win 8 desktop replacement to make Fences 2 usable.

So what's the hold up?  Wednesday will be two months since the emails for Fences 2 went out.
