I am a long time PA user. I recently downloaded the beta version 12 beta 2, however, when I add the line under [DisplayOptions] in the ini file, as instructed, I still see the icon. Though I am using Win 8.1, this works with the regular 11.2 version. Is this something that is known? A search of the forum did not turn up anything related tot his circumstance.

Thanks for you help in advance.
