      Jan, the skin and how it operates hasn’t been changed in DEX 3.8 from prior releases (other than an edit to the 2-deck skins, but only for on-screen immediate access to saved overlays). What happens if you double-click a blank section of the very top bar of DEX 3, does it then maximize completely to fit within the confines of your screen? Minimum resolution for DEX 3 is 1366×768, as well.

          What is your screen resolution? It almost sounds like you’d have to be using a 4:3 ratio display if it’s not automatically filling your display. Please take a screen shot and email it into pcdjsales AT pcdj dot com so we can take a look!

            Hi there again…i think i got it…one more question for you…is there any way to delete overlays in the video overlay box besides having to clear the whole list…i’d like to delete one or two but not all of them…thanks again for the help and the video overly on/off button on the dex3 home screen is totally awesome….

            Great! While you’re viewing your overlays, click on the layer you wish to remove and use the “-” button (there is a – and + button below the overlays viewing box area). This will remove the selected overlay layer.

    I downloaded the first version of 3.8 and the overlay button is not showing up on the 2 deck screen. Saw that you had the 3.8 rc2 and downloaded that and still have the same issue.

      Hi James — You must be using one of the older 2-deck skins then. Please be sure to select a 2-deck skin labeled with “3.8” from the drop down menu under the general tab in DEX 3.8’s options. Then, be sure you’re on the video tab on the 2-deck skin. You will see the new drop down to select your overlays, and the apply button next to it.
