Hope this helps

Re: Sharpcap always on top

Robin,

Sharpcap always on top

not sure if this is a bug, or meant to work this way. When I'm using a two monitor setup and livestacking (monitor 1 running SC control panels and monitor 2 showing livestack image), The Sharpcap on Mon 1 seems to be in 'always on top' mode such that I can't access other apps (browser or Cart du Cie...

I just needed to do some tests - some lights, flats, darks and dark flats to prove that the fault seen in the first camera was absent.
