Portable Apps Suite Support Please

Well the problem is that on any computer I use the suite isn't docked in the corner. It is like a centimeter off and it just bugs me.

Picture

Anyway to fix it?

It's 4px, actually

It's 4px, actually. And it's because there's a shadow underneath it on Windows XP... or rather there should be. Looks like you have XP, but I don't see a shadow for some odd reason.

Either way, it'll be optional in the next release. You'll be able to disable the shadow and have it exactly in the bottom right. It'll do that by default on Win2K and Win9x which don't support the shadow, anyway.

Also - Moved this to the PortableApps Menu support forum.

Hmm well doing this didn't

Hmm well checking the "Show shadows under menus" didn't work: http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y239/RockyNguyen/Other/PortableAppsMenu..., so I don't know what will. I guess I'll just wait till the next version since it doesn't really matter.

The picture just shows that the PortableApps Menu has a shadow under it, but still doesn't fit in the corner. If it helps I am using the Royale theme on Windows XP and this is actually a different computer than the last one I used.

I said next release

In the current one (including the beta), it's always 4px over and up to accommodate the shadow... so it won't be flush with the corner. The shadow should show up in XP (and only XP).

Hmm...

What about an option to dock it in the top corner instead? I have my task bar at the top of the screen instead of the bottom (I run RKLauncher to give me a Mac OSX-like dock at the bottom of my screen), so the Portable Apps menu always comes up and covers some of my dock.

It's a little annoying, but since it's a pop-up-click-once-and-it-goes-away type of app, it's not really a problem.

Later release

As mentioned elsewhere in the forums, in a later release you'll be able to pin it to any corner. Keep in mind that for 99.99% of computers, it's unnecessary so, as time grew short, it was one of the features put off until later.
