Keep platform on top

Is there a way to keep platform on top until you click on something else.

I.E. Open more than one app

Now, when you click on an app, the platform hides immediately.
I would like the option to keep it on top until I actually switch views so that I can open more than one app, clicking on the opened program, like it does automatically anyway(when platform is shown and you click away from it - it hides).

Remain Visible

Remain Visible. It's not in the GUI yet but you can turn it on by editting the INI with the platform closed.

Thanks for the quick

Thanks for the quick response.
Yes, that seems to do it.
Is there an always on top option as well ?
And, can the logo be modded so that it minimizes on click?

No Always On Top

There is no always on top option. It used to be always on top with auto-hide on but we found it got messy before with people using hacky dock apps and the like. Having it as an option is a possibility.

We'll be reworking the buttons to be able to add a min button in the near future. The logo is used for repositioning the menu (click and drag) and has a hidden option (double-click) to reload the theme which is used in theme development of the included themes and will be used by theme developers once it is opened up.

Thanks once again. I

Thanks once again.

I recommend option for always on top.
Maybe as an "AlwaysOnTop" .INI value just like RemainVisible.

And, what about changing the personal picture button [ now when clicked it opens to find an image ]
to a hide button?
As now the taskbar icon has to be clicked to hide the menu, which is a little too far.
And, when taskbar is clicked, while in the background, it hides the menu instead of bringing it to the front.
So, it needs to be clicked twice when the menu is in the background to show it again.
