Work Launcher [1.3] by ActiveColors Work Launcher [1.3] by ActiveColors

Work Launcher

Version: 1.3
Last Update: 18 December 2013

Hello folks. Several months ago I had some arguments about functionality of XWidget and Rainmeter and was said that it isn't possible to port Work Launcher  from XWidget to Rainmeter. So I did 100% port (not for the first time by the way) and added some more useful features and settings ;)



Changelog

1.3 
Added: Ukrainian language. Thanks to BlackoutY4K
Fixed: Launcher panel titles became shortened when D2D is disabled. Thanks to Meyrlan

1.2 
Fixed: Custom language picker. Thanks to BlackoutY4K
Added: 32x32 icon pack for choosing
Changed: Authors in the About dialogue are clickable

1.1
First release



Instructions


Installing Launcher
This launcher works on Windows with installed Rainmeter program. It is free and you can get this program on rainmeter.net/

Configuring links
Click right mouse button on the link and choose "Configure Link" to open link editor.

Changing settings
Click right mouse button on any launcher area and choose "Open Settings"

Choosing number of items on the launcher
Open settings as it is written above and find there option "Number of Items". Change it's value from 1 to 10 on your wish.



Answered Questions


Why in the context I don't have "Configure Link" menu?
This menu will be shown by clicking on the area which you chose in the settings menu "Open Link By Clicking". For example you set to open link by clicking on the icon, "Configure Link" menu will appear on right mouse click on the icon of link.

Why my text fonts don't look like on preview?
If you have Windows 7 or 8 text rendering should be ok. If not, download and apply www.microsoft.com/en-us/downlo… this Platform Update to enable D2D rendering.

Just a quick wish or idea if someday it is possible? It will be nice to have japanese characters, korean, showing up (or maybe it depends on local settings??) any special characters. But really awesome ! Thank you very much !

Do you think there is a way to make it so that you can have more than 10 items on the launcher?
