Haven't found a changelog at the Stardock site, so am posting here to ask if the absence of an "Exclude from quick-hide" has been fixed yet.  Thanks,

This has not been fixed yet, however, a work around is to put a shortcut into a fence, set the exclusion adn move it out again.

Move the shortcut out?  Not sure I understand, since if it's moved out what's the point of having fences?

Either an icon is in a quick-hide fence...or it's not....being on the desktop itself.

I expect that's what Zubaz is referring to...

Yeah I know, but how's that a workaround; i.e., what's the point of even installing Fences 2?  Actually, I did uninstall it a couple of months ago, going back to Fences 1 until the bug is fixed (btw, Fences 1 does work with Win 8, contrary to what Stardock says; it's just that a right click on the desktop is necessary to show icons with each computer start up, a workaround that's obviously not commercially viable).

I just installed 2.1 and have the same problem.  I am subscribing to this thread to see if and when the problem is fixed.  BTW, where is the changelog to be found?

Damn, I was hoping this would be fixed by now. Has there been any response by the devs?

I've given up hoping for any help from Stardock.  Fences 1 still works fine with Win 8 and does everything I need.

The issue should have been resolved in the 2.1 build and is resolved for most users.

If you have not emailed support, please do so.  We can capture some logs and try to see why things are not working for you.

I've started a new thread, but might as well add here that yesterday I uninstalled Pro, keeping settings, and installed 2.10.  The result is "Exclude" doesn't show in the Context Menu except for documents (pdf, xls, etc.) and the Trash icon.  No application icons, even if replaced.
