Very nice. I like that 1.3 has some love too.

@AMIGASYSTEM: sorry, I didn't reply to your PM yet. You can now change the icon size and use a custom-shaped platter :)

Thanks Thomas, I'll try now!


I can't find the item to resize the icons

thomas 17 April 2020 17:43

See the hints on the download web page.

Perfect Thomas, with the translation I didn't understand that you had to add those parameters in the Tooltype, thanks for your help.

It would be nice to be able to remove the text under icons in AmiDock Style and ToolManager, and always on ToolManager the possibility to insert a skin

I'm having a hard time understand how to install it. Which files and drawers goes where?

AMIGASYSTEM 18 April 2020 11:23

What OS are you using? You can copy and run from the folder wherever you want.

Look at the vido, I run the unpacked folder on the fly on a WB 3.0


Solskogen 18 April 2020 13:23

Ah, I see. I use with BestWB, and on BestWB it seems like WBDock is in Tools/Commodoties, but I'm not sure where the other files are located, and then moved into WBStartup if you want to autostart it.

Hi, just go to prefs and double click on wbstartupprefs with that program enable wbdock. Reboot and that is it.

Nice, how do I remove some of the existing programs from the dock?

thomas 18 April 2020 23:36

Activate the dock window, right-click on the icon and select remove :)

Thank you Thomas for answering my request, everything works well also on ArosOne 68k. Is it planned to start the text also on "MagicWB Style" ?

The news Updated to version 2.255

kriz 20 April 2020 01:27

Excellent thanks !! But why not on Aminet ?

AMIGASYSTEM 20 April 2020 22:31

The Apps including WBDock are also nice

I'm impressed enough to have replaced AmiDock with WBDock2. This is the MWB configuration. The "dockies" are very nice. Here, showing the dock clock. I really like the way larger icons fill the space. It (very sort of) reminds me of the dock in Coffin OS.

Weaselrama 22 April 2020 15:20

Thomas - I have a bug report to file regarding the CPU usage on WBDock vs. AmiDock which I had to switch back to. Can I send it to you here or on your page? I didn't want to file it here in public. Great app but 2.255 is causing some unwanted behaviors in OS 3.9. Thanks!

AMIGASYSTEM 22 April 2020 15:26

I with v2.255 only had some problems on AROS 68k, the icons are not always clickable but this only on "MagicWB Style".

On OS 3.9 RTG AfA OS no pronlem found !

I'll check the CPU usage on the other styles. Thanks for the heads-up.

Unfortunately on my Bench, WBDock2 runs hot regardless of style employed. I've gone back to AmiDock in the interim. I have no doubt the issue will be resolved.
