        So now that I got DTI working with this latest version (thanks a ton Glenn for this app!) I ended up building a few config files based on mfg to handle scaling issues but I am happy with the overall results. Microsoft Surface devices really seem to be a bear to deal with compared to the Lenovo and dell models. Have not yet tried on a Panasonic. Anyway I now want to start exploring the use of the screensaver but it does not seem to move around the screen when active. Am I missing something? Below is the config I made for it and all it does is just sit at the top middle of the screen.

        I would greatly appreciate any help on this as I would like to present this to management soon.

        screen saver config file:

        [Screen-Saver]
        monitor-mode=0
        inimonitortime=10
        ignore-setting-change=0
        #font-charset=1
        #font-face=Arial
        font-size=18
        #Font-quality=5
        auto-scale=0
        width=660

        [text]
        noresults=<n/a>
        error=[error]
        null-result=<null>
        unknown=Unknown

        [items]
        # colors
        set=key:White,value:#ffffff
        set=key:Grey,value:#909090
        set=key:Cyan,value:#00ffff
        set=key:Magenta,value:#ff00ff
        set=key:Green,value:#00ff00
        set=key:Orange,value:#ffd000
        set=key:Yellow,value:#ffff00
        set=key:Silver,value:#d0d0d0
        set=key:Blue,value:#0000f0
        set=key:Red,value:#ff0000

          if you mean does it bounce around the screen like the old style screen savers? no it doesn’t do that. The whole screen saver thing is a misnomer these days cos we don’t *need* toys to stop screen burn in. We like to have something display when we’re not using the computer or when it auto-locks. That’s what we’re doing here. Btw, you can add “centerv=1” to get it centered.
