Plugin Request

Postby risingevil » 18.06.2010 07:59:24

OnTopReplica is an app that's lets you keep a small live thumbnail of any window (including portion of an window by selection), but It runs into issues with Dexpot. If the window I want to keep an eye on is on the same desktop as OnTopReplica, then everything is fine, but if the window is on a different desktop, OnTopReplica would go blank. Could some one implement this feature as a plugin for Dexpot, using the live thumbnail in Windnows Catalogue should be fine, if that's doable.

I am currently using AutoHotkey scripts to implement switching between desktops with mouse wheel, and HotCorners effect to bring up Windows Catalogue and FullScreenPreviews. If these features could just be built into Dexpot that would be great. I am aware people have ask for the features in this paragraph already.

thanks

:dex:,

thanks for your suggestions.

Really appreciate your feedback but there's no need to suggest features over and over again. Most of the features suggested are part of the tracker list already.
Best regards (wave)

Do you use this tool to keep track of windows of one particular application only?

yes, for me at least. However, I can imagine some people might open multiple instances and keep track of different application You know, those super multi-taskers. So I guess, having the option of keep track of multiple applications would be nice, since someone is bound to use it.

Well, then I have a workaround, for you at least. Add the following to the wechsel.ini and restart Dexpot.

Code: Select all

[Exe]
executable_name_of_the_app_you_want_to_track.exe=move

OnTopReplica should then be able to get thumbnails of windows belonging to this .exe, even when they are not on the current desktop.

Thanks so much. It works great. And it works with multiple applications too.
