Windows 7: Announcing: 7stacks - stacks for 7 (freeware)


29 Jun 2009   #21

Windows 7 RC build 7100
 
 

Thanks everyone for all the positive comments. FYI, version 1.1 now available. Download away. Changes are:

- Fixed Stack and Grid disappearing off screen when the Windows Taskbar has AutoHide turned on. It will now range-check all 4 sides to make sure it appears completely on screen.
- Added Preferences window and accompanying JumpList entry.
- Added Close Stack preference. You can now choose to close the stack either by clicking away from it (the way it did in 1.0), or by clicking the stack icon a 2nd time (the way its done is Mac OS X).

It seems that for drives, the shortcut cannot include the trailing slash. So, don't point the shortcut to "D:\", point it to "D:". Then the icons will show up as they should. Also, the caption cannot include a colon. See the attached screenshots.

The app will do all this automatically in the next version.

And a big thanks to everyone for finding the bugs for me.

Bugaloos:

-Mapped Networks drives' subfolders get labeled with the letter of the network drive.(see pic)

-(menu style)If it's a deep folder, it'll take a second for the flyout to come up and the popup menu pops up wherever the cursor is. So if you move the cursor off to the righ real quick, the folder popups on the right side of the screen.(see pic)

-Mapped Network drives don't show icons for files(see pic)

-Locations set directly from the network(not mapped drives) don't show subfolder directory names

-Putting a slash in the directory will create a dead file on the desktop.

Wishlist:
-Using the preference on the jumplist should bring up the rest of the options (style/icon/directory) configures.

-Being able to set how many files per subfolder can show in menu style

-Send the "Active state" to the taskbar item so you can tell which stack you're currently using.(visual consistency more than anything)

First, Problem 2 .. Yes, you're absolutely, right. That will be fixed in v1.2.

Problems 1, 3, 4, and 5 are all relate back to this same bug I mentioned earlier. Just make sure the stack points to "W:", not "W:\" That trailing slash apparently goofs everything up. I will also have that fixed in v1.2.

I'm gonna see if there's a way to edit a stack via a jumplist entry. I agree that that would be very handy to have. I'm gonna have to see if the jumplist is capable of doing that. The jumplist is kind of convoluted to work with. You have to do everything w/ the jumplist by passing command-line parameters from EXE to EXE. Yuck...

Hehe, you're right, I coulda sworn I killed the slash. My bad.

I've noticed the ordering of folders is not alphabetical. Is there a reason why that's happening.

That's odd. They're alphabetical on mine. Could I see a screenshot?
