Quick Hide is "slow"

The problem: When I double-click on my desktop to quick hide or quick show my Fences, the system takes like 5 or 6 seconds to hide or unhide them. Often when hiding them, the entire desktop "flickers" until the icons and fences disappear.

 

Some relevant information: If I set Fences to autohide/autoshow when the desktop loses or gains focus, the fences and icons appear *immediately* with no delay. I am confident that double-clicking the desktop should work at the same speed. I am running, as far as I can tell, the latest version of all the ObjectDesktop software (including Fences 2), along with CursorFX and ObjectDock Plus 2. (Yeah, I love Stardock OS customization software!)

 

Any suggestions? I thought I read a while back some registry edit trick that may fix this, but I can't seem to find it by searching for it when I need it (isn't that always the way?).

Well, Google didn't help me find it. (I did look....)

Are you running any other apps that affect the desktop?

If you are using Deskscapes, please uninstall it, reboot and then reinstall it from SDC as chances are you didn't get the update which sorted this problem.

Well, that seems to have worked for the most part. Sometimes it makes me double-click like two or three times, but then Fences responds like it should. Thanks!
