Thank You for 2.0!

Tuesday, March 30, 2010 by Mirsguy | Discussion: ObjectDock

I for one wish to thank Brad, Jeff and whoever else was involved in getting ObjectDock 2.0 to the point where it could be released! I just downloaded it and am very excited about it!

I also wanted to thank the team for a couple of specific things:

1. Thank you for the new True stretch feature. Without this feature (like in 1.9) docks pictured below would look choppy, but now they are smooth.

2. A personal thank you for including the Caliginous dock with the program. I am honored to have been able to contribute here. That was one of my earliest docks.

 

One thing that I believe is necessary is to natively include the Stacks docklet. I already have it saved, so it's not a big deal to just copy it over; but it would be nice to not have to.

Mirsguy: And I'm honored that you choose to create such great skins for our dock program!

Hey Jeff...don't mention it! Oh wait...you didn't!

So far, looks like 2.0 is good.

Okay, then here's an "outside the box" idea:

For one, I've always thought it was hokey to have your start menu just kind of pop up above your dock when using a launcher. Just my opinion. I think it looks wierd when out of place (ie- normal windows position).

What if, instead of the actual start menu, there were a type of start menu launcher that displays your start menu items, without displaying the actual start menu? Half similar maybe to the W7 jump lists or something.

Don't even know if it's possible, just thought I'd throw that out there.

 

I guess I think outside of the box too....I've thought about the same thing, We really don't need the menu, just the stuff on it!

That "out of the box" idea is called WinStep, guys. Take a look at the 'start menu' generated from the start menu icon in the NeXuS dock....I think that's what you're describing?

Stacks docklet doesn't work well for me as the Stacks open on top of the dock. That is not very usable as I have the dock at the top and some settings that have been there in 1.9 are missing...

Just to remind people the Stacks docklet is a 3rd party docklet, not something included with ObjectDock.

 

not included because stardock is going to implement subdocks which are better than stacks, right?  right?  please?

Stacks is working for me.top or bottom,fan or grid.To check, I moved my bottom dock  to the top by r-clicking on the dock and moving it  and the stacks opened downward. No other setting or adjustment was needed.

That is strange. Maybe I am using a strange build of the stacks docklet ?

Can anyone point me to a version that works ?

No matter which version I use, it all does the same... I think I will do a clean install. Thanks nevertheless.

Thank you I love it! What you need to do is to add a welcome screen that explain how to use the new feature or have a link in settings listing them. It took me a while to learn how to change backgrounds etc a help guide would have been nice since it different from 1.9. Make it where you can uncheck it so you never see it again.

 

Can you tell me the name of the flat dock in the OD 2 pictures? I see a couple but they are lighter thanks again I really like it once I learn how to move the tabs around. That is very helpful. The carbon tab style is cool can you make a flat copy of that for the none tab dock? This is one of the best looking one yet.
