  • - Crash when trying to pin a non-existing picture (when hovering over a picture file shortcut).

Veranderingen voor v3.9.00 - v4.0.00 Beta

  • New and Changes
  • - Size of the Docking Bar: You can now select between 3 different sizes for the workspace when its docked/tucked away. The new 'Normal' size is the default for new installations and you can select between a Normal, Small and Large (The size of the workspace itself; the default size before this version). By the default, the workspace will flash a couple of times whenever it docks/hides to remind you where it is. The new Normal and Small docking border size options allow you to keep a much bigger workspace for all your work, but in a more accessible and compact way. The "Invisible border" option is only available for the Large docking bar size (Same as in previous versions).
  • - Added the ability to start web searches directly from the Keyboard Launcher.
  • Undock the workspace (with the mouse or the Global Hotkey), enter "s " followed by the search query then press [enter].

  • - Removed "Change to relative path" menu options from shortcuts and pictures as there is no longer a need to manually select this option.
  • - New "Send To" Shortcut Menu command. This works like the Send To menu in Windows and allows you to activate selected shortcuts with specific programs. The same functionality is provided when dragging a shortcut icon on top of a shortcut label. The Send To list is based on the programs selected for Speed Launch.
  • - System Info: Option to display free memory (in bytes and percent) and total CPU utilization in the title bar.

Veranderingen voor v3.8.00 - v3.9.00

  • New and Changes
  • - New menu option, "Lock Size/Position", added to the Position menu: Selecting this option will lock the workspace position and size and you will not be able to move it via the titlebar or resize it. This is especially useful when undocking the workspace with the finger while working in tablet mode.
  • - Scroll RSS containers with your finger (on touch enabled devices) or by dragging the mouse pointer over the news feed (besides of using the mouse wheel/scrollbar).
  • - Added a new "Darker" option when selecting a color for selected shortcuts based on the color of the shortcut's icon (from the Shortcut Mini-toolbar). There are now two options to choose from: Darker and Lighter.

Use this command to automate SideSlide backup from within a scheduled task or a 3rd party backup software. Suppress the 'backup complete' dialog by using the "/silent" command line parameter: "\...\SideSlide>SideSlide /backup /silent".
  • - Launching SideSlide with the question mark ("/?") command line parameter will now show the available commands and exit the program.
  • - Removed 'Shrink/Expand All' and 'Fold/Unfold All' Arrange menu options. Those were very old functions from before SideSlide v1 which probably aren't used by anyone anymore (I hope).

  • - New default toolbar buttons ("Modern").
  • - Other misc. minor changes.

  • - New wallpaper (Bricks.jpg)
  • - Multiple misc. minor changes.
  • Fixes
  • - Starting all shortcuts (by dbl-clicking the container icon, if the option was selected or from the container Shortcuts menu), wasn't working properly.

You can also hold down the [Shift] key while hovering with the mouse over a headline in order to display the tooltip even if this option is unselected.
  • A new option under the Settings dialog, Container options: Focus on Expand/Unfold (selected by default). Focus on the container on expand/unfold so you can use the keyboard to launch shortcuts, scroll through headlines in RSS containers or enter text in note containers. With this option selected, the Grab Focus setting is redundant after expanding/unfolding a container.
  • The Keyboard Launcher is no longer shown by default when invoking the workspace using the global hotkey (for new installations). Use the arrow keys to focus on shortcuts or press any key to show the Keyboard Launcher.
  • Added a new menu item, Refresh Icons, to the main right-click menu under the Arrange sub-menu. This option reloads shortcut and container icons in case some of the files were not available when the program started. Pressing [Shift+F5] was always possible. •Fixes
  • Smoother switching between workspace tags (Ctrl+Tab or F7)
  • Tooltip is unloaded when using the arrow keys to select shortcuts.
  • When creating a new command the wrong tip was shown in the command edit field.

  • On certain occasions, the arrow keys didn't work to scroll through RSS headlines in expanded containers.
  • Shortcuts in the workspace are now reselected when invoking the workspace with the global hotkey and shrinking back containers. This helps in keeping the keyboard navigation order.
  • Setting the colors for reminders displayed Note Foreground and Background colors which are irrelevant for reminders.



Veranderingen voor v3.5.15 - v3.5.16

  • New and Changes
  • Added two new commands to the Shortcut Right-click menu:

  • Fixes
  • Containers may not be properly restored to their original location on program start.
