ok thank you  :)

If I set Appearance Skin to default and then set Background Display of my dock to colored and clBlack. If I change the Appearance skin it also changes the color the Background Display

That changes the color of the selected menu item and the dock as well

I've provided a screenshot. I don't have any mouseover text applied to any node. I just have them either named with no icon or just an icon. as seen in the image I have my mouse over the system node which highlights it blue as it does the other nodes. Hope this helps sorry for my lackluster attempt at describing the problem lol

just tried and that didn't work either. would using an image as the dock's background fix it ?

no the text is fine I can read it. It's just the color that I would like to change or get rid of entirely. I chose the default themes and background display is set to colored and clWindowT

Is it possible to change the color that shows when you hover your mouse over items on the launchbar without changing the color theme. Right now my bar is black with white text but when I hover over an item the item turns blue can I change that color?

ok cool thanks :up:

I use Wallpaper Master to cycle wallpapers, but everytime the wallpaper is switched my two docks go straight to the system tray and when i restore them I have to resize both everytime the wallpaper is changed.

Is there a way to stop this behavior or at least stop the resizing of the docks?

I've came to a happy balance for myself.
I have a doc at top and one to the right(hidden). I have the taskbar hidden(i can access it when I need it)

I'll try to find a good systray program and I should be set. but I have a problem
the text in the dropdown list is too big. It's using the same font and size that I set for the dock itself. What I'm after is to have the list of programs in a small font, but changing the font  does nothing unless I change the dock font too.

heres a screenshot:

thanks guys. I'll check out those videos for sure. right now I have two docks  one is one icon that pulls up the contents of my start menu. it's hidden at the top of my screen and another dock on my right side set to slide out with my mainly used programs.  I also minimize it to my systray while playing games in full screen.

as it is now I could probably get rid of the taskbar and just alt tab between open windows.

I'm wanting to remove the windows taskbar all together and was wondering if it's possible to have a dock in lbc where open windows would sit like the taskbar ?

Nice setup. I think I may have to go back to horizontal. lol maybe I can find a piece of freeware to help out. thanks :)

I have my taskbar  on the left side of my screen. when I have a window open  the button is a small square on the taskbar. Is there a way to make the button vertical

ok got it now. sorry about that. I had to pur the drive letter in Application/Command and working directory.

edit: Thanks again for this app. Best out there for me among all the flashy bloated launchbar software. Launchbar commander is lightweight fast and configurable, so kudos

LaunchBar Commander / Trouble adding a Hard drive as a link
« on: April 01, 2014, 09:41 PM »
I want to have an icon at the top of my launchbar that when clicked opens the second hard drive where my music is store. So far I can only get it to display all the songs as a menu.

It's probably a setting I'm overlooking I'm sure but I cannot find it. Is there a way to do this ?

Thought I would share this. I have found a way to get a centered dock
I have LBC docked to the bottom of my screen and I have my  task bar set to auto hide.
The way I was able to center the icons on my dock was by adding blank command nodes before my first icon. I keep adding extra blank command nodes until my dock icons are centered. One problem some might have is the fact if you hover over those areas where the blank command node is  it will highlight the area breaking the illusion that it is centered.
a screenshot of how I have the blank command nodes setup.

and two shots of my desktop one with my task bar active and one when its not.
LBC and  windows task bar seem to have problems with each other every now and then, resulting in the task bar not auto hiding. in this case you just right click the task bar and go to properties. Usually just doing that fixes it and I cancel out of the properties menu.
I've integrated my start menu within my clock area thanks to a small app called LClock
and my desktop without the task bar active

I have but when I use it no matter if I dock on top,bottom,or sides the icons end up appearing over my taskbar or other relative important areas I need clear and  it makes it hard to see the icon. I've arrived at a happy medium for now with the location and size lol

again I thank you for your help and all the work you put into your programs

Question 1: Now  that I have been through the options and colors I think I'll have to use an image to get the launchbar to have the save gradient look as my windows taskbar. Problem is I'm not sure what size I should use for the image.

Question 2: I set both the folder shortcuts to command node but now nothing happens when I click them

Question 3: this problem seems to cleared itself up. It seemed to happend to my MS Word shortcut the most but after a restart its back to normal.

 I have  one other query. Is it possible to make the portion of the dock background that has icons to be a color while the unused portion of the dock background is transparent ? hopefully the screenshot will help show what I'm talking  about if not I'll try to describe it better.

Thank you for the help.

LaunchBar Commander / A couple questions about Launchbar.

I love the program and with the newest version docking has become great. I'm having trouble getting  LBC to act the way I want it and haven't been able to figure out a way to fix it.

I took a screenshot of my setup so the questions will make more sense lol.
* Screenshot - 1_18_2012 , 4_06_54 PM.png (1574.79 kB. 1152x864 - viewed 283 times.)

Question 1: I'm trying to get the  dock color to match the color of my taskbar but no matter what I change in the skinning options the color stays the same. Is it possible to get it to match ?

Question 2: The last two icons are folders, one for my downloads and the other for  my writing. How can I change it so when I click the icon  the folder opens instead of showing the contents like it was a menu?

Question 3: when I add shortcuts to the bar and save. when I try to click  on the icons to load the application nothing happens. when I check the path  it's totally different than what the shortcut is so I have to manually change. No big problem just wondering if it's a bug ?

Question 4: Can I make the icons bigger. I have them set to large right now.

thank you for making an app like this it's great

thanks for the help everyone I appreciate it. :Thmbsup: tried each suggestion and right now Everything seems like the app for me

thanks for the suggestion. Installed it and tried it for a bit but noticed really high cpu consumption while running it and when searching it bogs my system down as well. Thank you for the link though I'll keep it installed just in case I can't find anything else
