Love that the transform panel now shows fractional positions ❤ Helps to spot alignment issues

fractional might not be the mathematically exact term. I mean values of pixel positions which contain non-zero digits after the decimal point, which were not shown in prior versions (except you decided to statically increase then number of digits to be displayed)

Ok, understood. But is this an enhancement? If the decimals are shown anyway, why do we need a preference for decimal units? I have to confess, that the current beta is not installed on my machine, so I cannot test myself.

Toggle frequency layer shortcut is not working in this beta 1.9.4.1065.

My custom shortcut for Frequency Separation works ok in this beta. It's good to see the choice of Method has been extended to the Windows version. However, I am getting artefacts with the Gaussian method with radius above 27px for landscape images & 41px for portrait images. This does not occur with the other methods or the production release. It is very specific to those radii. See attached files. I'm not sure whether you would ever use such high radii but it could be a problem.

I don't see that. The decimal places in the Transform panel are still controlled completely by the settings in Preferences, User Interface.

Are you sure you don't have 3 decimal places specified for px units there?

is really working when I apply separation and frequency in beta, is that I was opening a file with frequency separation of stable version 1.9.2.1035 in that beta, while the artifacts did not happen here.

Concordo que os artefatos não ocorrem na versão estável

Rescanting,(google must have mistranslated) when importing a file with frequency separation from the stable version (in the current beta version) the frequency layer switching shortcut does not work.

and the artifact problem does not occur on my computer (as shown in the video in 0:49)

Just tried to download the latest Beta and Bitdefender is preventing the download

Bitdefender is wrong. You should override it to allow the download and installation, in my opinion.
