Another easy question for you guys: which of the two box icons do you like best for the default Grid Stack icon? The one in perspective or the one facing you?

The one facing you. Looks better IMHO.

I prefer the one in perspective.

To me the one in perspective not only has orthogonal view but also breaks with the overall aesthetic of the dock icons.

Fight!!!! :P :D

This said, Sacco_Belmonte is right.

On the other hand, that might be a good thing, to call attention to the 'uniqueness' of the icon, since it has no sub-dock indicator.

Also, keep in mind it's just the default icon, the user can change it like it would any other item in the dock.

hehe, yeah what did you expect :D

I cannot care less actually. I'm gonna change the icon right away anyway. Is just that the front icon looks more like a modern smartphone icon and the perspective one looks like something out of windows vista.

One more question: should I call it 'Grid Stack' or just 'Stack' ?

Grid Stack describes better what it is, but simply 'Stack' would be better for a lot of reasons.

I am with Sacco...... Grid, a stack is a single row off Icons vertical.
As far as which box, either will do I will only just change it straight off anyway.

No, actually a 'stack' means a 'pile of stuff' (check the video in the previous page). In MacOSX a Stack can be in Fan (the vertical row of icons, equivalent to Winstep's sub-docks), Grid (the rectangular window, equivalent to our own Grid Stack) or List mode (equivalent to showing a folder as a menu in Winstep).

Anyway, here is my problem with only using 'Grid': I think people used to other docks will be looking for the word 'Stacks' and not 'Grid'. They'll know what 'Supports Stacks' means, but will they know that 'Supports Grids' means the same thing?

Then the answer is clear 'Stacks', Supports stacks I now see your point. If I went searching as I did I went searching for a RD'stacks' knowing that that also covered Grid's hum now Iam going round in circles.
"Stacks" it is your right.

Yeah, but the problem of only using the word 'Stacks' is that users will then (probably) be expecting the Fan mode, and not so much the Grid mode. lol

E problema terminado.
