You give us wonderful software and I feel humble to ask this question. I am using SPM Pro (64bit) v 6.03 on Widows 7 with text size Medium 125%. I am an old man.
All works well until I use 'Adjust/Color Adjustment/Levels Adjustment' or 'Curves adjustment'. At that point the window which opens is too small to allow the right hand histogram to be fully shown or some controls.
If I use 'Adjust/Color Adjustment/Color Adjustment', the window is perfectly wide enough. I attach a screen shot.

Thank you for your feedback!
Could you try this test version?

    Tony Brown   2020年7月25日(土) 19:51     Mail [Edit]
Have tried your new file and it is almost there. Just a little wider would complete the update. New image attached below.
Thank you so much.

I tried to change various display settings, but I could not reproduce such a display. Can you show me a screen capture of the display settings screen?
After that, I've made a modified version, try it out and let me know the results.

    Tony Brown   2020年7月26日(日) 18:29     Mail [Edit]
The new '603b' version works fine for me, thank you.
I attach a screen capture of the Display settings screen as requested. The resolution is set at 1600 x 900 in my Win 7 Ultimate.
Looking at the previous images I sent, enlarging the font size in Display has enlarged all the 'SPM Adjust' active boxes with text in them so that they become wider than the histograms above them.
Strangely, in SPM 'Adjust/Color adjustment/Color adjustment' the pop-up window size enlarges to suit and the whole 'Color adjustment' displays fine. Also, the 'Adjust/Color adjustment/Easy Adjustment' pop-up window works perfectly in your original '603' version.
Thank you for all you have done. Version '603b' works fine for me.

 long time issue regarding unicode   William   2020年5月22日(金) 2:04     Mail
Your software is excellent but there is an odd thing, when there are files with foreign characters in the name (like Cyrillic)in the folder and you try to load an image the program gets all confused and won't show the image and often won't show files anymore, even English named ones in the same folder, and won't load the filelist.
Sometimes it shows the file list but loading an image fails and then when you try 'open' again the list doesn't show various files in the folder.

It's odd since I expected software from a Japanese person would be internationalized and would not have such issues.
Maybe it's something odd in windows? Or just on my system?
Anyway it's the same for many versions and including the new 64 bit variant.

I'd Email about it but I tried emailing on another subject and I seems it did not arrive and maybe got confused with spam.

The Email I did try was regarding supporting the .PNS extension incidentally, which is just a PNG file but with the established naming for stereo images.
Oh, and of course PNG also has an optional 'stereo' flag in the header I understand, which you would set for such a file.

    Masuji Suto   2020年5月22日(金) 7:07    HP [Edit]
Japanese is also a multi-byte character, but it works without a problem even if Japanese is used for the folder name.
I don't have the confidence to be able to reproduce it in my Japanese environment, but can I ask you to send me a ZIP compressed version of Cyrillic name folder where the problem occurs?

    William   2020年5月22日(金) 8:31     Mail [Edit]
You can just rename any file into word with Cyrillic, like Russian for instance, and you get the error.
My solution if this occurs is to simply rename the file or files in the folder to an English name, or to remove them from that folder, and that fixes it immediately.
So in the same way you can also rename a file to any Russian word (which is an example language that uses Cyrillic) and you get the issue.
No need to send files, just go to a Russian site (or google translate maybe) and copy a word and rename an image that way.

I know Cyrilic has the effect but maybe there are other scripts that do it too, I'm not sure,

    Masuji Suto   2020年5月22日(金) 15:11    HP [Edit]
I tried changing the folder name and file name in appropriate Russian, and it works perfectly fine.
(I tried normal version, not test version)

    Masuji Suto   2020年5月22日(金) 15:15    HP [Edit]
Your problem may be the downside of SPM's multi-byte character support. I've made a test version, so please try it and let me know the results.
By default, "Using multibyte characters in path names" of the preferences screen is checked, but when this check is removed, the problem is gone or the phenomenon is changed, please tell me the contents.
You can download the test version here.

    William   2020年5月24日(日) 22:07     Mail [Edit]
Well I tried using the test version and I get the same effect regardless of how I set the preference.

For clarity I might add that I use the 64 bit version of windows7 which is set to US-English.

Note though that it is possible it's just some obscure thing relating to my setup, and if I'm the only person that has this issue then you should not bother trying to fix it, because then it's my own issue that I need to fix myself locally.

Just on a chance I quickly installed the Japanese language pack from windows update, to see if any support files in it would make a difference, but it did not it turns out

    William   2020年6月22日(月) 20:43     Mail [Edit]
I just noticed this remark about an old bug of another software tool:
"In Windows, ExifTool will not process files with Unicode characters in the file name. This is due to an underlying lack of support for Unicode filenames in the Windows standard C I/O libraries."

And it seems that the programmer of that software found a fix.
No idea if this issue is related, but perhaps since I use Windows7 a similar old issue is at play regarding the unicode name thing in the Windows7 'standard C I/O libraries' mentioned?

    Masuji Suto   2020年6月27日(土) 10:29    HP [Edit]
I can't fix the problem because it doesn't reproduce in my place. Could you please tell me the name of the file or folder that is causing the problem?

    William   2020年7月11日(土) 20:52     Mail [Edit]
Dear Masuji,

I get that you can't fix it since you can't reproduce the error, but I'm occasionally posting some stuff that might help someone else maybe to figure out the issue and then when we know that then perhaps we will have got a way to deal with it.
Meanwhile I'll just use the old version or avoid the parts of the program that don't work for me.

I encountered a bug both in (64bit) 6.01 and 6.02:
Changing file-type in "Save Stereo Image" dialog erases filename - replaces it with only the extension.

    William   2020年5月30日(土) 20:06     Mail [Edit]
I can confirm that issue.
Tried in 6.01 and get the same.

    William   2020年7月5日(日) 20:08     Mail [Edit]
Now in 6.03 when I select 'save as GIF animation' the program immediately crashes and I'm back to desktop.
So I guess that's 'fixed' then :D (by replacing it with something much worse :/)

But again, I'm using the software on an older version of windows, W7-x64, so perhaps that plays a role.
Maybe all bug reporters should mention their setup more?

    William   2020年7月9日(木) 21:59     Mail [Edit]
Small update that might help someone:
First of all I discovered that disabling the 'preview after save' in GIF animation does help, so it seems the preview has some bug on my system.
But what I was actually posting about is this:
After I went back to using the old 'non-pro' version 5.xx I suddenly also had it fail after saving an animated GIF.
But I found that if I selected the option to remove the registry entries in the 'help' menu (and thus resetting most preferences) it worked again.
So for some reason the registry entries damaged the functionality of my old version stereophotomaker and it's interesting to learn that that can happen. It's odd since I am not aware of there actually being a setting that could cause it to close after saving a GIF.

Anyway if you have any issue you should consider trying that removing registry entries to see if that fixes any issue you might come across.

 Unable to open a MPO file   Garius   2020年6月27日(土) 1:19     Mail
Dear Masuji,

The SPM pro version is very good.

However, I encountered a similar problem as previously mentioned by the user William. I would like to write to you to report this error hopefully you may log it down and fix the bug in the near future.

The file was first opened without any difficulty. After changing the file name to a Chinese character, I am not able to open the file. I have attached an image for your reference.

For me, I just changed the file name back to English Character, and I can open it again.

Thank you for your attention.

    Masuji Suto   2020年6月27日(土) 8:32    HP [Edit]
Please uncheck 'Using multibyte characters in path names' and retry with Chinese character.

Edit->Preferences->View tag->'Using multibyte characters in path names'

 6.02 bug   William   2020年5月26日(火) 17:16     Mail
Just tried 6.02 and find it crashes to desktop when you select 'make animated gif'

Could you please incorporate on the web html gallery? (Make HTML5 Stereo Viewer)
New York and California clubs are using it for online meetings. It would be good to give people new to stereoscopy a way to view pics on their monitor using just a mirror.
Thank You

 SPM and Nvidia 3D Vision   Jim McManus   2020年5月20日(水) 1:53    HP Mail
Successfully using Nvidia 3D Vision with the latest (5.52) version of SPM (32-bit and 64-bit both work), on Windows 10 Home version 1909 (OS build 18363.836) & i7-6820HK processor. GPU: Nvidia GTX 1080 w/ GeForce driver 425.31, which is the final one that had all the Nvidia '3D Vision' drivers built-in. Also works with older 32-bit versions of SPM: tested 5.30e & up

    Masuji Suto   2020年5月20日(水) 6:24    HP [Edit]
Thank you for your feedback,

As for the SPM 32bit version, the 3DVision support has not changed anything so far, so Ver5.50 should work. On my 3DVision, it works fine.
The SPM 64bit version of Ver5.50 could not compile due to an error, so it does not work even if the LCD shutter is selected.
You're saying that Ver5.50 doesn't work, is it the 64bit version of SPM?

I fixed this compile error and re-support 3DVision on the SPM 64bit Ver5.52 beta02 or later.

I was mistaken in my original post when I claimed that 3D Vision did not work with the 32-bit version of SPM 5.50; it does work with that, just not with the 64-bit one. Have edited the post

If anyone has trouble with your 3D Vision monitor NOT kicking into 120Hz frame-sequential mode (when you hit F8 in SPM), but instead it displays a squeezed 'H-SBS' image with a text warning on it, just hit "Ctrl+Alt+Insert" to remove the warning, hit ESC to exit full-screen mode, and then hit F8 again to go back into full-screen 3D... that should work
