I like DockMenus a lot because it's simple and intuitive. I always wanted to remove the clutter from my desktop but DragThing appeared to complicated to me (too many options I don't need), so I bought DockMenus. To make DockMenus even better, I have three suggestions:
1) Make the icon in the menubar optional: Once the DockMenus are installed, you won't need its menubar icon anymore. To make the menubar icon visible, you could press the alt button on your keybord while opening DockMenus. This behaviour is well known from apps like Desktop Curtain.
2) Add an option to the preferences to show the titles of the items directly in the DockMenus.
3) When a DockMenu is fixed on the right side of the screen, it's not possible to see the names of the items when the mouse moves over the items. This is as the names of the items always appear on the right side of a DockMenu, so if the DockMenu is fixed on the right side the item names are outside of the screen.

Nice and useful small app but has an important flaw as it does NOT support multiple monitors (extended desktop)!

Once created, the "mini docks" just refuse to be moved to another monitor, please implement/fix that and I'll purchase it right away.

Also, a list of existing "mini docks" in the menubar icon menu and the possibility to save said docks would be appreciated ;-)

Hi, Im glad you like Dock Menus ;D

What do you mean by the multiple monitors issue? If you describe what you want for one who has never seen multiple monitors connected, we should be able to implement it if there is no other issues.

As for the menu bar, we will add it into version 5.0.

Comment #3 for Author. As far as I can see, under Spaces - even if set to show for every space, it does not. It only appears on the space in which it was originally set.

Comment number 2! I should have explored it a bit more before commenting on the opacity. That part is already handled and nicely too!

Looks great and has good potential. If it had the ability to be just like the dock - in otherwords to be able to say, once its pinned to the LH or RH side to be able to be hidden like the real dock and brought out by moving the mouse to wherever it is pinned. Also to be able to make it transparent and "skinnier" would be an improvement. A lot to ask for a $5 appliance but I would pay more if it had more features. I'm going to run it for a week and see if it "gels" with me.

Well done for a good effort.
