  1. I'm pretty sure the problem people are having with X Windows Dock not staying on the desktop when using show desktop is Aero Peek, of course this only applies to Windows 7. So, with keep dock over all windows selected in the options, and Aero Peek disabled in performance settings (i.e. Start>>> right click Computer>>> Properties>>> Advanced System Settings>>> under performance select Settings>>> deselect Enable Aero peek) the dock should stay on top of the desktop any time you hover/select the Show desktop button on the taskbar. You guys can test t
  2. Option 1 sounds to be the logical approach. A live update of the icon is not necessary because its just eye candy really.(Mac OS X 10.5 dock did not have the live update thumbnail either!, I'm not sure about 10.6 however) If option 1 can be cleanly implemented into the dock then that gets my vote. Take your time BOBAH, we appreciate everything you put into XWD including time and effort! No need to rush. We get all excited when there's talk of a new update though
  3. Ah, ok thanks. I couldn't find it for anything. P.S. I said "there seems to be no way...", that is quite different from saying there is no way.
  4. It's ok, and they have polished some features very well. The minimize windows to dock is nice, needs a little fine tuning but otherwise they did a good job. The settings window is functional and easy to navigate. Skins seem to be easy to make as well. Theres some other things about it they did well on but I'm keeping this short. There is, however, some letdowns...They forgot the simplicity of things really. Where is drag and drop support in it? Sure, I can drag something to the trash bin, but why can i not drop a text file on my notepad icon and open the text file, or drop a video on the WM
  5. Thats so strange, you aren't the first person to report having that problem.... However, as you can see in my screencapture...It is functioning />http://yfrog.com/6zxwd202showdesktopz *I'm not sure what settings you have set in XWD, but mine are as follows: Perhaps the "Keep Dock over all Windows" option is what keeps the dock visible/useable after clicking Show Desktop in Win7, just a guess.
  6. 1. The project is alive 2. a)Icons don't work? - Could you elaborate please? If you mean a certain application doesn't launch after clicking on the icon then perhaps you have added a .lnk shortcut instead of the actual .exe itself. Other than that I have no idea what you mean. b)The stack plugin has only been implemented into the dock since version 2.0.1 I believe, so there are still some issues/optimizations I presume to be made since it is basically beta. c)There aren't any icon effects? - Could you elaborate please? I actually have no idea what you are trying to say here. There is ico
  7. Loving the update BOBAH, much appreciation for the hard work and finding the time to work on it I have noticed a couple of issues with the bouncing dock, I apologize if you are already aware of these... If you receive a message while something is in full screen mode, when you come out of full screen mode the bouncing icon is still hidden off of the screen(but you can see the icon description and part of the icon on its highest bounce. In fuller detail...if you have something running in full screen mode i.e. video playing in WMP, and a dock icon is instructed to bounce until the window
  8. Hmm, I noticed with XWD update, after updating, it is still notifying about an update everytime it is started. No biggie, just something i noticed. Loving the drag support in the stacks Bobah, and the expose is pretty nifty too!!! Also, as you stated on the homepage, the performance looks good, and i see you took care of that issue where XWD was using 1-2% cpu constantly. Really great stuff...Cheers!
  9. Ctrl+Left click does this function already
  10. Do you have multiple monitors? If so, this is a known issue. It is believed to be fixed in the next version to be released. If you do have multiple monitors.... Disable them, start XWD, and now you should see the dock on your primary monitor. (Then, you can re-enable your other monitor(s)) If you do not have multiple monitors, please disregard this post.
  11. 1. Right click an empty part of the dock>>Preferences>>Skins (then you can cycle through the skins you have in the skins folder) 2. xwdock2.0beta\Skins
  12. Hmm, XWD still stays on the desktop for me when "clicking" on the Show desktop button, and infact the dock remains fully functional in this state... However, the dock is not there if I only "hover" the mouse over the Show desktop button. Is this not the behavior that you experience?
  13. Not to compare, I just wanted to add here that RK Launcher does have this ability... Well, this project specifically has implemented it.... />http://windowsedge.com/iVista%20Project/RKLauncher.html I dunno if that helps any, but i see its possible to do on the windows platform, but totally unsure if its possible due to the language the dock is written in or the docks core.
  14. Good to hear its functioning correctly on XP then All the programs i mentioned, repeat the same "symptom", dragging and dropping the application directly from the system32 folder onto the dock, creates a desktop link. The desktop link does nothing more than open the users desktop folder.
  15. Thought I would throw this out there, just a minor odd bug I guess. Dropping the Sticky Notes application (this is on Windows 7) into XWD 2.0 creates a nonfunctional icon(generic application icon), and when clicking on the icon it gives an error: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\Sticky Notes.Ink Unspecified error Ok, so I thought, i would drag&drop the sticky notes.exe application itself into the dock... Dropping the StikyNot.exe program (located at C:\Windows\system32\) does an odd thing, instead of creating a link to the Sticky Notes application,
