suggestion: tabs instead of icons
« on: December 10, 2006, 05:28 PM »
Hello,  I would like to make a suggestion to Mouser:

Instead of using icons (I'm so burnt out on icons), I think the interface would look better/cleaner if tabs with labels were an option.  I posted a pic so you would know what I'm talking about.  The pic is a screenshot from another program/widget, but that program isn't as promising as this one.  Also, the author of the other program never configured the tabs to be horizontal, just vertical - I think the horizontal tabs would look better and give more room to add more tabs.  Anyways, just a thought. 

BTW, great program, you're very talented.  I'm sure I speak for everyone here - you're efforts are very much appreciated.  :-*

Thanks for the comments - actually i have always intended to add tab support, so that you could have essentially multiple launchbars that you could switch like tabs or as your screenshots show, slide-out when you click the tabs - i just have to figure out a nice way to do it.  but i agree, the images with just the tabs sticking our look quite nice.
