Some initial questions first
Monday, August 25, 2008 by SharXXXOO | Discussion: ObjectDock
A while ago, I saw a MAC computer and I loved their dock they had, I almost ate my words and considered buying a MAC just for those graphic based docks of theirs! ::shuddering:: lol. Anyhow, I Googled it and found RocketDock. Please don't stone me! But then, accidentally, I spotted Stardock's OD listed with my other Stardock programs. Now I have some questions to ask as I would prefer to use Stardock's so that everything meshes together without conflicts.
Ok, here comes the newbie questions that I can't find answered elsewhere.
1. I want it to look like MAC's dock, where the icons seem to be sitting on a shelf. Is this possible with OD+ ?
2. When I make a folder for OD, when I click on it and it should show me all the icons for programs inside, can I chose to have it fan out like MAC? If so, how many icons will it show? RocketDock has a Docklet that makes this happen and the directions said it worked on OD too but I wanted to make sure as I love that feature.
3. Would an icon work on the dock, which I have in my Windows Quicklaunch Toolbar but it doesn't work in RocketDock and was hoping OD would.. I have the icon set up wiht a different than normal Target in the Properties , set to open my Explorer and open certain folders automatically when I click on it. Here is the target line:
C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe /n,/e,C:\AOL 9.0\download
Would that work in OD plus?
4. Is there any other benefits of paying for Stardock's OD plus rather than what I am getting using RocketDock?
Thank you SO much for any help anyone can give me. I do so want to use OD but I don't have a lot of money to spend so it would have to be worth changing for. I tried to find the info on Stardock's site but I felt the description didn't really answer these kinds of questions.
