Dock app launcher for MS Office apps.

Overview

Office Dock is one application in a series of applications I am making to reduce Dock clutter and use very small applications to take the place of many others. These applications are normally around a 100 kb, and use 0 CPU when they are open and idle. To use them you can right click on the icon in the dock and you will see a custom dock menu listing a series of applications you can launch from there.

Making these applications from the feedback I get takes time, I do this as a hobby. If you enjoy using the software, and would like to see them kept up to date and more, and you would like to donate a few dollars to keep them coming please contact me via email.

This one is specifically for Microsoft Office 2004 and 2008. If you want to see some more of these type please email me and give me an idea of some of the applications you would like to see supported.

website? donate? about? RSS? Sparkle? It all seems to defeat the purpose of a lightweight launcher...

You should make this application able to open aswell such as offices "Microsoft Project Manager" this will make this application less cheap and in my view, OWNAGE. :) [I dont like how i have to right click to choose, i just want to CLICK and a menu pops up or something!] Anyway, GREAT idea!

creating a slack with the alias of the application amkes the same and uses no resource at all. So even if I thank the developper for its efforts I don't see the use of such an application

You can do a lot of this without any hassle by simply putting Project Gallery Launcher in your Dock. It's already on your disk at MS Office -> Office -> Project Gallery Launcher.

Nice idea, and good that it doesn't eat CPU cycles, but why does it take 15Mb of RAM and 200Mb of virtual memory space just for a little menu app? (according to Activity monitor) For now I'll keep a folder of aliases in the right side of the dock.

First of all: THANKS! Little request: Wouldn't it be possible to add a feature which allows you to hide individual Office apps icons in the Dock when "Office Dock" is used ? That would definitely reduce clutter. In the future one could also imagine resizable app icons inside the Office Dock menu... ;-)

I would like to see the application to be able to show a grid or fan display of the MSOffice applications, instead of just the list option.

I appreciate the author's efforts, but because this loads as a normal application (i.e. it shows up in the command-tab list) it is much less useful than a docked folder or other type of App launcher

Earlier problem still exists re MSN Messenger (i.e. Office Dock launches Messenger ...but does not opens the Personal Contacts dialogue box and automatically signs in as would normally happen when you launch it straight from the OS X Doc). All other Office apps work perfectly. Thanks for your continued improvements.

For a list of all the ways technology has failed to improve the quality of life, please press three. Anyway, funny thing is for sure Microsoft is going to implement this sooner than later.

You can make a folder with the Office apps as aliases. It will do the same as this app, except it doesn't use any memory. You can paste an icon on the folder to make it look nicer.

Works a treat with all my Microsoft Office 2004 apps ...except MSN Messenger 7.0.1. I get a 'Choose Application' dialogue box with the question "Where is MSN Messenger?" when I attempt to launch it. No matter how often I choose the app it still looks for it every time. I use a PowerBook G4 running OS X 10.4.11. Any suggestions! Otherwise a brilliant concept - well done.

thanks for this program! I like it in that it gets rid of three apps out of my dock. I would like to have an even simpler one that let's you pick which apps that you have in it and then have it only show the icon, not the name. Further, don't give me any other options in the menu, just show me the icons to click on. I don't use Entourage, or Messenger. I really wish I could just put a Stack with alias in it on the left side and then put the "Office" icon for the folder. That way it would fan up and let me pick the app and then close. Also, It would be cool if it did not show the icon of Word (for example) when Word was open. But these are all preferences I guess.

Why not simply use stacks??? WIth the different kinds of display modes for stacks, even list view, all you have to do is create a folder, put the aliases in there and drag that folder to the dock - done. No app needed.

No developer contact info listed. Will there be options for a regular old application launcher from the dock that works (and is customizable) with any apps?
