I still can't believe that mirroring/cloning the docks and the shelve to all monitors isn't a more popular demand.


I would be all for that! I always have copies of my docks on both monitors (because moving the mouse to the right is easier than waiting at the bottom for the main monitors dock to open) :)


Interesting. Just realized that there is a duplicate button. Duplicating everything and assigning it to the second screen would also be a solution, if it would also work for the shelf.

So I would only need to open the settings dialogue when changing from multiple screens to one screen. (to deactivate the duplicated docks/shelf)
I'd be ok with that.

So, multiple shelves are the most important feature we need for the moment.


Would be even better if the docks(/shelf) on monitor 2 would auto-disable themself when monitor 2 gets disabled, instead of jumping to monitor 1. (what leads to having all the copies on top of each other)

Quick question: of the following 'alarm bell' icons for the new Alarm Manager IC (internal command), which one do you like the best?

The white bell with the green background stands out most.

I like the colorless version the most. I suppose it won't be customizable? (dynamic icon?)
I tend to user rather clean UI elements, so that the color theme mainly gets defined by the wallpaper.
My favourite are transparent/glassy windows (with blur) and icons, since they adapt to any new background.

I kind of dropped the idea. How important would it be for you guys that the icon reflects whether there are active alarms or not?

Anyway, since it is an Internal Command, you can simply edit the item and change the icon in the Item Properties dialog. Or you can change the actual icon used by default, which will be inside the Icon Samples folder.

Just noticed this. I like the white bell with the green color and (( )) around it.

I'm not quite sure about this. It wouldn't be vital, but it's a kind of a basic feature on alarm clocks. Any alarm clock has some light or dot to indicate that an alarm is active.
Sometimes you'd maybe forgot it and leave, having the alarm running until timeout. (which could annoy your neighbors or roommates...)
It can also remind you that you've forgot to set it.

I can think of two rather simple solutions, to still being able to customize the icon.

1. Like the recycle bin - just two icons for on and off state, that can both be changed.

2. An small overlay, like the one for running programs.

I personally wouldn't use my PC for alarms at all. (kind of a high power consumption for an alarm clock)
But people who actually use this, (who have their PC running anyways) would probably welcome the indicator.
