Edge of screen toggle "irritation"
« on: September 04, 2008, 04:45:19 AM »
I'm been playing with using the edge of screen toggle settings (I originally turned that off), and have found it more irritating than useful..

There's a couple of things that would make it easier to use, I think:

1) Don't toggle if I have a mouse button held down - I'm probably dragging a window, and really dont want something popping up on top.

2) Add a time factor, so that I can configure it to require that I deliberately hold the mouse against screen edge (for a few ms), rather than just bouncing off it by accident. (so, maybe configurable to 0ms, or something larger).

Yes, these are things I should implement. I'll try for it in Alpha 8.
