Hi Jorge, I was tinkering around with a Drawer and just thought about something. Is it possible to expand the icon rows? I looked but couldn’t find that feature.


Drawers are limited to 1 icon row by design. If you want multiple rows of icons, you might as well use a single tab Shelf instead of a Drawer.

Not adding new settings for something like that, but I did add a new feature in the same vein for next release: if you press SHIFT while *clicking* the scroll arrow, it will scroll a full page of icons. If you press CTRL, it will scroll to the end (or the beginning).

Please explain. Not sure what you mean by a single tab Shelf. I assume it would not be physically connected to my Shelf? And how would I create that?

Okay. Better to have something than nothing at all.

Windy, the same way you can create multiple Drawers, you can now create multiple Shelves. So, you go to the Docks & Shelves tab in Preferences and you click on Create New Shelf.

This will create a new Shelf with three default tabs called 'Main', 'Documents' and 'Modules'. Now you right click on the Documents and Modules tabs and you select 'Delete this tab' from the context menu that pops up.

In the end, what you have left is a new Shelf displaying a single tab (the 'Main' tab, in this case).

Wow! Thanks Jorge! This is what I was trying to accomplish with the Drawer with one exception which I'll address in a second. I didn't realize that it would look exactly like the Drawer if docked to the side. I never used the Shelf as one tab or docked to the side. I'm going to replace the Drawers with the one tab Shelf.

Now for the exception. I hope it's already there, and if not, PLEASE put it in. It would make it triply awesome!!

Can the Shelf be expanded to the full screen of icons AFTER being bumped? In other words, I want the single tab Shelf minimized to the smallest size (as my Drawers are in the screenshot Sun Sep 02, 2018 6:23 pm earlier in this thread), but after I bump it, it will expand to whatever height and width of the screen I set with all of the icons/folders displayed which is what I thought the Drawer would do if the icon rows were increased.

I see that icon rows can be set width wise if docked to the side, so the only thing you would have to add would be to have it expand vertically if docked to the side.

BTW, will you add that feature to the Shelf too?
