Winstep Nexus.

OK, back to Nexus, the only universal Dock that doesn't seem to be abandoned (or Payware).

Circle Dock / Re: Stop Cirlce Dock from going invisible
« on: March 15, 2014, 10:58 AM »
What is happening, by Default:
When you create a new link in Circle Dock the link automatically get set to "Hide Dock on opening Files and Folders"

Can this also be disabled? Or do I have to change that setting every time I add a new item (suppose I always want to keep the dock visible)?

So is it still being maintained...? On the official (?) page they say "The current version of Circle Dock is 0.9. (with the download links dead).

How come -- or is only that page abandoned, and is there a newer homepage somewhere?

I was looking for a replacement to Nexus Dock and came across Circle Dock. Looking at the release dates and this thread, I fear however that Circle Dock is abandonware.


Thanks but no,  I wouldn't need certain windows to stay on top. That would be easy to do anyway.

Rather, I'd need

  • either: "every window that spans more than one monitor stay in the back where it is (even when clicked into)"
  • or: "each and every window keep its z-position under all circumstances (unless the titlebar is clicked - in that case, jump to the front)"

Hi forum,

especially on multi-monitor setups, it would be great if there was a way to click or work in application windows without having them jump in the foreground and covering up everything (on every monitor).

File manager spanning three monitors that covers up everything else on all monitors every time you quickly want to look something up, or quickly change a folder, scroll position, or similar (click to enlarge)

It would be amazing if someone could think of a way to code an utility that could provide this feature. TXmouse by Andy Polyakov actually (sort of) does it, however not with all applications (anymore), and with some unwanted side-effects like automatic window activation on mouse hover.

As with TXmouse, if you actually do want to change the window z-order (and bring a window to the front), you simply click on the respective windws's titlebar.

I've described it in detail over at the forum, so please bear with me posting a link to the respective discussion:
Fixed Z-Order, don't change z-order if a window is clicked

Regards David.P


I meant something like this:

Faststone Capture (sort of) does that by Ctrl-Clicking several windows (or window elements) one after the other.

(However not with shadows, rounded corners, transparency etc.)

Ah ok mouser, that was it! Thank you.

Btw, is it possible to capture multiple (overlapping, or adjacent) windows, for example by shift-clicking on several windows that are currently visible?

Regards David.P

Sorry to be late on this topic,

I have just installed the latest version of SC on Win7 Prof 64bit, and can't seem to get transparent window backgrounds.

Instead, captures look like this:

The captures are made using the "Grab active window" button of the Quick Capure Bar.

SC settings are all default (I chose "reset settings" on installation).

Any idea what could be wrong?

Regards David.P

Ahh sounds good Curt.

I'll try the installer then.

Hi guys,

I just updated to the latest Listary version (portable).

However, it seems that the file and directory structure has changed: everything used to be inside a "x64" folder, now not anymore; settings file used to be called "Config.xml", now it seems to be "Preferences.json".

Thus, is there any way to update Listary and keep all my previous settings?

Thanks everyone already,

Just was gonna say that Listary rocks! I love this tool  :-*

Tomorrow Listary is 50% off at BitsDuJour  :Thmbsup:
Strike! 8)

One question regarding the usage of Listary: I like the option that opens the Listary menu with a middle mouse click ( all Open/Save dialogs). However, elsewhere I use the middle mouse button for other things (like e.g. opening background tabs in browsers). How can I prevent Listary popping up in these cases?

Cheers David.P

I beg your Pardon?  :huh:

Anyway, Listary DOES work in Firefox! And in MS Office  :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

Hi forum and Channing,

I'm trying to use shajul's WYSIWYG BBCode Editor together with TEA but for some reason the text is not transferred back to the textarea (e.g. here).

This editor uses a (proprietary?) file format called *.bbs (which is actually html-based).

From the first post I gather that the text should be transferred back to the textarea from the editor also by Alt+Tab, but this also doesn't seem to work.

Any hints greatly welcome,

Cheers David.P

Wow RJ, Listary looks d*mned good to me! How come that this has never been mentioned before in all the years?

[edit] OK it has  :-[ ...and I've missed it  :huh:

Do you think that it also will work in the proprietary Firefox and MS Office Open/Save dialogs?


Whoaa! What happened? Has this been included as a new feature?

For some reason, FARR now seems to give me all the Windows 7 Start Button search results (even the misspelled ones).

Only the icons are missing? :huh:

Check your BIOS boot settings. "PXE" means the laptop thinks it is supposed to boot from LAN (thus the mention of "Cable").

Cheers David.P

Ahh, that's perfect, thank you.

Not sure if you read the help file

This is exactly what I need, thanks!

Maybe the window can be made resizable or something, in order to allow somewhat more room for text labels?

Cheers David.P

Great, thanks!

Is it already possible to edit the labels on the "pick color dialog"?
