I'm still not using it actively myself, my work computer is still XP for a few days, I should change this week. I'll try to make a fix for XP too, it's too bad that it can't work for a icon issue.
The blurry icons are an improvement I made over the previous behavior, I found an ugly way to detect icon size and scale it. It's a bit better ihmo, I think that Quicksilver does it as well.
Thanks for pointing focus issues, I think I'll just hide it when it lose focus for the moment, it should make things much clearer. It would be nice to have a fully usable piece of software for nany release
I'll add some customization for hotkey, shift+space is not even my personal favorite (my favorite is still binded to FARR ). space+shift is not really possible because space would create a space in all apps before invoking Qatapult. You can also use autohotkey to bind any key to shift+space temporarily.
I'm not sure what you mean with the possibility of selecting text. I don't think I'll allow to select text from the UI, I'd prefer to add commands to paste it and use it in various way. What's your need for that ?
