File names in MondoDock

Post by max » Fri Mar 10, 2006 1:49 pm

MondoDock is really a usefull widget but I've some difficoults with file names visualization. Sometimes they don't appear or, if they appear, they stay also if I leave dashboard. I think it can be usefull that file names appear just like in the dock: at the top of the icon and in withe (instead of yellow tips).
By the way, thanks very much for this widget.

The "tool tips stay when Dashboard is dismissed" is a know OS problem (I think it is fixed in 10.4.5).

There should, however, be a better way to show the name on mouse over, but there often isn't room for the name (since the name can easily be larger than the icon). Setting the "title" property of an image is suppose to handle this for, but as you've seen it is sometimes fickle (it often seems to work well if you first move the mouse completely away from the Widget and then back to it, and don't touch the mouse until the title shows up).
