This is self explanatory, and is being looked at carefully by Markham.
This will take some time, as entire code re-writes will be needed.
Option to turn off "Snap to" Dock option: (Completed: V1.5)Suggested by: Boiiwonda
This would be an elective option in settings
To turn on/off the Snap to Circle Dock, when the dock re-appears after being hidden.
This functionality would work when Circle Dock is Locked (Anchored) to a specific location.Option to have Circle Dock appear at last shown location, instead of follow cursor: (Completed: V1.5)Suggested by: Boiiwonda
This would be an elective option in settings.
This would work while Circle Dock is not Locked (Anchored) to a specified position.
This would allow an equivalent to drag and drop for Circle Dock.
This would in effect be like Locking CD in Place without locking, so if I Last opened Circle Dock on the left side of the screen and click the center button on the right, Circle Dock will appear in the last appeared location.Add "Lock Location" to Circle Dock context menu: (Completed: V1.5)Suggested by: sgtevmckay
Add option, similar to Automatically Hide. to the right click menu.
This function would be equivalent to the settings option: Lock Dock At Current Position.
Located in the Right click menu (Context Menu) Immediately below Automatically HideAdjustable Zoom Feature for icons and text: (Suggested)Suggested by: Arekku (LifeHacker)
This would add an adjustable zoom option similar to that of Object Dock and Rocket dock, when icons are hovered over.Toggle Circle Dock appearance/disappearance as a Windows Context Menu Option (Rejected)Suggested by: dkazaz
Add the ability to toggle Circle Dock's appearance/disappearance utilizing the Windows Desktop Context menu.
Quote from suggester:
"I'd love to be able to right click the desktop and have Circle Dock as an option on the context menu (ideally the first one).
""always on top" option in tray icon context menu (Also for CD Context Menu) (Suggested)Suggested by: joiwind
Add to CD and Systems Tray Icon Context menu...ability to toggle "Always on Top" Remember the last icon directory (Suggested)Suggested by: Padz
The program remembers the last file folder but always reset the icon folder to default and this is quite annoying for people like me who have a folder with all icons for different apps.
I have also thrown in a related request to be attached to this one:
I am also going to see if we can get Circle Dock to copy Icons to Circle Dock Icon Folder(s).
* This would help maintain the portability of The Icons, and Circle Dock, when the appropriate Icon is not available when Circle Dock is in use on other systems.
* This would also reduce system resource use, as Circle Dock will not have to scour the system looking for Icons.
* this may also increase the speed of Circle Dock. As Icons could then selectively be made part of the core folders, and Circle Dock may be able to load the Icons faster
* See if this can be done with a pop-up question: "Do you want to copy this Icon to the Default Circle Dock Icon folder?" If moved, then the Icon that was coppied, is teh Icon used and not the icon from the remote file
