Hey there, I would really like a Genie effect when you minimize or open windows from the dock just like mac's do.

I really hope that this feature is beeing added.

Hopefully someone is reading this and is going to write a reply if this is possible or not :D :pray:


Oh someone is reading this, but you won't like the answer though, which is 'no can do, sorry'.

Too much effort for very little return.

Hi Jorge, I would like to give you some suggestions:

1 - Add an option to disable only Winstep sounds without disabling the voices.


Just added that for next release.

Sorry for the late reply... :)
Uff, that's really sad to hear.

Not even as "Addon" or so? I would also purchase the addon. :mrgreen:

Not even as an 'addon'.

IIRC, ObjectDock featured that effect and it was constantly running into problems where it worked right on some systems and not at all (or very badly) on others, etc... It would need to be made in Direct3D to be fast enough, and it is something too tied to the system for me to be comfortable, especially now that Windows 10 changes the rules every 6 months or so.

I really don't need that type of aggravation for something as minor as a Genie window minimize effect, sorry. :)

Hello! New guy here! I must say that I really love this software! It's almost perfect.

Maybe someone has asked this before but... I don't seem to find an option for the dock to not appear when I'm browsing on Chrome. I use the dock on top and I usually have a lot of tabs open and it's somewhat annoying when the dock appears... It's driving me nuts! Haha.

Maybe add this option on a future release?

Thanks!

There are a ton of different settings you can change to help with accidental dock activations. First, if the dock is set to 'always on top' you can, if you haven't already, enable the 'Auto-hide for maximized applications when always on top' option in the Behavior tab of Preferences/Dock Properties.

You can then either fine tune the Edge Bump Settings (Behavior tab -> Activation Settings -> Edge Bump Settings button) or you can change the activation method from 'edge bump' to 'edge swipe'.

Moving the dock to the bottom of screen instead of the top also helps, of course.

Any chance we could get the same kind of "magnify" effect for mouse over effect on shelf icons that we have for the dock? Would very much love that :)

*I know we currently have the "zoom" effect on the shelf icons, but it is a little choppy, and usually get's stuck on zoom out until I click on something else (see screenshot)

No. The background of dock's can expand dynamically to accommodate the magnified icons, but the Shelf cannot. EDIT: and that is just one reason, there are several others. For instance, docks do not have text labels under each icon, nor tabs with text, the Shelf does - text rendering is EXTREMELY slow compared to the rendering of icon images.

Try setting the background transparency to 1% instead of 0%.
