  1. The current version of DI is spoiling functioning of layouts in Delphi IDE. After starting Delphi, when we have docked DI window, IDE improperly loading the layout (the layout of remaining windows is wrong).
    It won’t be possible to permanent close the DI window, after every Delphi restart or reloading the layout the DI window appears again.

    ps. Delphi XE (and maybe other too)

  2. Delphi XE. DI messes with region visibility and keeps adding new line, adding indentiation on EVERY save of a topic for a property. The Share-It page should have said that this was beta software… In the current state, this is not fit for production use.

    1. We are so sorry that we noticed that you downloaded the Beta 3 insteading of the final product release. We have updated the old post and we are about to confirm something with you by email.

  3. I did download the release version. You still should point all downloads to the same download page to ensure that there are no stray links to old versions hang around (like it still does for the beta 2 blog entry)

    Your email was received, and I have identified the problem cause (source format dependent). An example for reproducing the problem has been mailed back. Sorry if I sounded harsh. This is a very useful tool, and I look forward to seeing it improve.
