Hi,
I am using Nexus Extreme and i have an issue with the graphic, This issue can be noticed more clearly when your wallpaper is in black color. We can see a blur area behind the dock when it is zoomed, or behind icons of the docks. To compare I install Rocket Dock and realize that this issue doesn't happen on Rocket Dock. This is not affected much the experience when using Nexus but with someone really care about the graphic ( i think almost Nexus Extreme user are) it is a little bit disappointed. I can temporaly fix this by lower the brightness and higher the constract of the monitor but this also affected the graphic of other applications as well so maybe you will have another good solution.

Please see my attachments for more details.

Each dock application uses different methods to achieve the same thing. In this particular case, aren't you nitpicking a bit too much? :P

Look, I understand what you mean because I know what you are talking about (the basically 99.9% transparent rectangular 'mouse click catch area' behind a dock) but I can't even see it here when looking at the screenshots, even with that all black background. Doubt many - if any - other users will either.

Your video driver should not even render that as anything visible, to tell you the truth. If I crank the brightness of my monitor to 100% (and my monitor is really bright) I still can't see it in my docks here.

Hi Jorge,

Thanks for your reply, if you can't even see the 99.9% transparent rectangular in my screenshots maybe because your monitor setting is different, i think so. Just lower your monitor constract and higher your gamma and brightness value then maybe you will see it will appear. As you said about the 99.9% transparent rectangular i understanded that it is the method that Nexus use, for some reason you don't need to put it to 100%. I understand this, as i said i can temporaryly fix my issue by higher my constract and lower gamma and brightness. I report this just let you know there are some case with some customer system' setting will meet this issue like me :).
