Installation & Usage

Docktop Preferences Edit Item

Version History

  • v1.3 - Released December 8, 2006
    • Added an option to hide Docktop on launch (but only if the global hotkey is enabled).
    • Added an option to disable item menus.
    • Added an option to use an actual image for an item in the launchbar, not just an icon from a file. To enable this, hold down the Option key when dropping an image file (e.g., .png, .jpg, etc.) on the icon image well in the Edit window.
    • Added a feature to reset Docktop to the default position if the Option key is held down during launch.
    • Made the Command key optional when defining the Global hotkey.
    • Improved Mac OS X 10.2.8 support.
    • Improved the registration process.
    • Fixed drag and drop support in the Edit window.
    • Minor interface updates.
  • v1.2 - Released February 21, 2006
    • Compiled as a Universal Binary.
    • Added an option to hide the Desktop. When hidden, the files are still available in the Desktop folder accessible from the Finder or the “Open Desktop Folder” option from the Docktop contextual menu.
    • Integrated the “Multiply Docktop” functionality directly into the Docktop preferences. Click the “Clone” button to create a new instance of Docktop that allows its own preferences, items, position, etc.
    • Fixed an error that occurred on some systems when re-launching Docktop after changing the background image style.
  • v1.1.1 - Released December 23, 2005
    • Added option to disable the spin animation on launch (Mac OS X 10.4+ only).
    • Added an AppleScript utility for creating multiple instances of Docktop each with its own position, buttons, and preferences.
    • Modified the click action for application buttons. Clicking on an application button will now more closely mimic clicking on an application icon in the Dock. If the application is document-based with no window open, clicking on the application button in Docktop will now activate the application and cause a new document window to open (if the application supports this behavior).
    • Minor code optimizations and interface enhancements.
  • v1.1 - Released June 10, 2005
    • Added global hotkey to show/hide the launchbar.

    • Added option to use round or square background or turn off background entirely.
    • Added automatic resize option when an item is added or deleted.
    • Added option to disable confirmation when deleting an item.
    • Improved the behavior of labels: if no item has a label, icons won’t be offset to allow label boxes, even if the option to show labels is enabled in the preferences.
    • Fixed an issue when using a folder as an item. Now, clicking on a folder item opens the folder as the expected.
    • Fixed several minor issues & improved the speed of the application when launching items.
