Please DO NOT change any of the default settings until you verify that the application is running as expected in its default state.
Restoring a prior Fences Snapshot:
Its IMPORTANT to ensure, after the purge and reinstall, that Fences is working as it should be. Please create a few new Fences manually, drag icons to them, make sure that your issue is indeed gone.
If Fences is indeed working as expected, please try restoring a previous snapshot:
-Right click on the desktop and select "Configure Fences..."
-Click on "Layout and snapping" on the left hand side of the configuration window that appears.
-Select a snapshot you wish to revert to. A preview window will appear showing you what the desktop will look like.
-Click Restore Snapshot to revert the desktop to this preview.
Again, test to make sure it is working as expected.
Please let me know whether this resolves your problem or if you have any additional questions.
