In the early versions, I wanted simplicity. But you're right .. in later versions, I will probably move to a more "centralized" GUI that let's you edit the shortcuts on the taskbar.
How do you recreate it? Just create a new stack? What happens when you use up the 10 stacks, does it start over with the first one(rewriting it), or just not make any new stacks?

Hi Alastria,

First off thanks for a great little app

There is however one minor problem that I am getting - I have the taskbar set to autohide, and when I click on a stack it opens from the top left corner downwards - ie. the majority of the pop-up is off screen.

If I swich off the hide option on the taskbar then everything works as expected.

This is a very useful app for those with a limited screen size who need access to more apps than can be comfortably displayed on the taskbar. People with limited screen space are also likely to use the autohide option so this may be something that you want to investigate for the next release.

If you need any further details or screen shots etc I will be pleased to provide them

i noticed that ESC closes the menu. could you set things up so that running the exe a second time also closes it? that way, if we launch the menu then change our minds, we can just click the taskbar button again to make the menu go away.
Notice you can also click anywhere other than the stack (i.e. the stack window loses focus) and it will close.

Someone else just emailed me about this. I must've had a little brain fart on that one . I'll release a fix for this by the end of the day.

Thanks.

yes, i noticed. it's just natural to click again to remove the menu, i don't know why. click-on, click-off.

thanks anyway

I'll add a preference for that. You could either do it the OSX-way (click icon again to close) like you said, or my way (lose focus to close).
