It's difficult to say what could be causing that movement; if you can work out what triggers it, or reproduce it without Panel Stack Splitter that would help determine the cause. I did note the Peakmeter Spectrum also seems to moved down one pixel in your first screenshot, though (which is odd as it's the opposite direction).

I already tried to remove the Panel Stack Splitter but still failing the same.
I will follow up to see if I know when it fails.
Thanks for your help.

I noticed that the column auto-sizing in the playlist view stumbles over varying run times. In this screenshot, the "hours" are cut off (it's 1:01:19, not 01:19), although there would have been more than enough space. Is there a way to fix - or, at least, improve - this?

Auto-sizing only makes the columns scale with the width of the window; it doesn't take into account the contents of the columns.

You could go into the Columns tab in preferences, increase the width of that column and set its size weight to 0. That will make that column a bit bigger and stop it changing size when you resize the window or playlist view.

Message for music music:

This message is to tell you that I have already found the surprising reason why the upper buttons move up.

When you open Foobar and then Photoshop move the buttons.
When opening Photoshop and then foobar everything ok.

I was using Photoshop 2015. I have installed Photoshop 2022 and continues to fail the same. It fails exactly the same in 4 pcs that I have installed.

Light mode failure and also in Dark mode.

I don't know if this will make any sense to you that you are the creator of Columns UI.

In any case it is extremely rare and I suppose it will happen to a lot of users.

Thanks, nice work tracking that down. I've reproduced that and Photoshop is setting the system font smoothing setting (for some unknown reason), Columns UI is diligently forwarding that to the toolbar control and it's reacting in a weird way. A similar problem appears to be mentioned here (in 2006): https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/vstudio/en-US/cca3ccbb-9be2-4914-b2b4-7a5456dc5238/mfc-toolbar-button-size-corruption?forum=vcgeneral

I'll stop forwarding the message in this case to stop that happening. Thanks again for tracking that down.

Hello, quick question, I am wondering if there is any means to create user-defined Menus? Has any other third-party component offered this functionality already, or could this be a feature considered for Columns UI? I have a lot of buttons in my interface and it could comfortably be more (Masstagger alone could unpack to over a dozen), it would be great to hide many of these under menus and save a little on screen real estate, as well as tidying up the appearance. Custom menu options could be very similar to the buttons panel options, just with image path options removed. Of course if this feature has already been offered by another component, I'd appreciate being pointed in the right direction! Thanks.
