In our office we have a camera feed which we open up in a regular web browser so that we can see when someone comes in the front door.  In this case I am viewing the feed with Firefox and I believe the feed is generated with Java (at least, "Java" sounds familiar).  I just downloaded DesktopCoral today but I've noticed that when I have DC and the live feed open at the same time, the computer (or perhaps video card?) starts to lag (the mouse doesn't glide smoothly on the screen but rather skips a many pixels at a time and typing is very slow).  When I close one or the other program the problem immediately stops - the mouse moves smoothly again.  To put it another way, I can run each program/window separately without any apparent effects, but when both are open at the same time the system seems to slow down.  Is there a compatibility issue with Java?

I can perhaps find out more information about how our live feed is generated, if that would help.

This is one of the reasons I downloaded DC.  I wanted a way to prevent windows from overlapping the camera feed.



I just downloaded DesktopCoral today and have used it a bit.  It seems it will be quite useful!  The maximization of windows works just as I had wanted.  I do have a couple questions though. 

I have a two monitor setup.  The monitors are widescreen and one is in the normal landscape orientation and the other is rotated into a portrait orientation.  I wish to dock DC on the upper part of the portrait monitor but when the DC is docked there, windows will not overlap it.  They either bounce back or will not allow the window to be dragged there at all.  However, If the DC is docked on any of the other 3 sides of this monitor it works.  Also if the DC is docked on any of the 4 sides of the landscape monitor it works.  Does this problem exist because the monitor is rotated or because it is the secondary monitor or for some other reason?  Is there anything that I should try?

On a separate note, I use Adobe InDesign CS4. Its floating toolbars (which can be moved outside of the program window) will only overlap the docked area to a certain extent.  They will not move onto/over the docked area completely.  This occurs even when DC is transparent and it occurs no matter where the DC is docked.  Is this possible to do?
