? for RocketDock users

Ok, my small complaint/problem with the great app (in my case) is that the way i use this i find myself needing to get to the dock, but have something full screen blocking the dock. Now i dont want it stuck on topmost, but what i would like to know is if there is a way to have it appear like the taskbar, by hitting the windows key.

Is there any similar way to do this for the dock? May need to take this up with them, instead of here

i started here first

Hi Digger,

I had the same issues when I used rocketdock and I solved it by Autohiding it at the top of the screen - always there never in the way


Update
Not sure if this would do what you want - from their Online Help

Hot Keys

1. Disable the Dock

You can hide RocketDock and stop it from rendering completely by pressing Control+Alt+R. Press it again to make RocketDock appear.

Yeah, and there's a setting to have it on top on windows so if you had a full screen and had it up top, you could point your mouse at the top and it should overlay on your full screen window.

yea, finding out thats the only solution to how i want to have it and use it. Just dont get the eye candy of having it not hidden. But have to have it topmost with autohide for my own funtionality use minus the annoyance.

Personally i love this app but uninstalled it because i've found it annoying in some ocations, but here is my question, is there any way of having rocketdock ALWAYS ON TOP but making it hide while im on fullscreen? i mean the way i use my desktop is like this
(so i dont need to go start+m every time i need to use a desktop icon, i've found it useful that way)

? According to the site, RocketDock doesn't work for Win7 x64.

I had paid for a copy of Object Dock Plus a while back and have been using that, but several of the app's don't work on x64 .

Thanks
