Nice update with the addition of shortcuts, but I have a few quibbles with this.
For one, I would like in a future update a way to pick my own shortcuts. There doesn't seem to be a way to pick our own. I previously had Control 1, 2, 3, etc set to switch Spaces. I had to choose different shortcuts in the Spaces prefpane in order to use Dock Spaces' shortcuts.

Two, the preferences window always shows up behind other windows and applications. At first I thought it wasn't working until I moved windows out of the way and saw it sitting there. It should pop to the front when selected from the menu.

Three, for some reason, I had lost my dock names after installing this update. The dock configs (plists) remained there, but the names were gone and I had to reset the prefs to use 4 docks, and name them again to get them back. So the update process needs to be examined. Unless it was just me that this happened to.

Anyway, I'd like to see this continue to improve. It's very useful now even with these bugs/issues. But I can see improvements making this much better.

Hello, and thanks for the update. I understand better now. Looking forward to the future updates to this. Thanks and keep up the good work!

Sweet little piece of software! Works just as described. This type of functionality really should have been included with Leopard's Spaces, if even as an option to enable/disable for those who may not want this. I now have much more manageable Docks. One for general iApps, etc, one for my graphics applications and one for server/system management that I do. Before, I had a cluttered Dock with a jillion items, and it didn't even include everything I used on a daily basis.

The only thing I'd like to see added is keyboard shortcuts for switching between the Docks. I don't see any way to do this. Otherwise, a very solid start.

nice application, and free is great. However, I just can't seem to make the graphic styles for the 3D Dock work for me, no matter what I try. I had previously used CandyBar to change my Dock, but reverted to the standard OS dock before trying to use these features. But it won't change my dock style. I don't know if my use of CandyBar screwed something up or not.

Any advice on what I can try?

Wow, just wow! I am sufficiently impressed with this app. Amazing graphical view of everything happening on your system. As a systems admin I can see really nice uses of this in troubleshooting misbehaving apps. This one goes into my permanent toolbox.

Great work. And it's free? Too hard to believe!

Don't bother with this application, if all it does it fake it. If you want to really change your menu bar to opaque, and even varying shades of grey on a more permanent basis that will survive random desktop pic changes, head over to MacOSXHints.com. See this hint:

Yes, it involves a little system level hacking in Terminal, but it really works, and so far has turned out to be completely safe to do. Read the various comments for ways to vary the parameters to get different shades of grey.
Or, you can wait a few days until someone puts a GUI wrapper around this command to make it even easier to do.

Great software, but unfortunately, it s broken under Leopard. I hope Turly gets around to updating it at some point for 10.5. I'm going to miss it in the meanwhile.

Great little widget! I love Pandora and listen to it whenever I can. It's an awesome way to hear new music that you would otherwise not get to hear.

This widget works nice, with the exception of the noted UI glitches. What I found though is right clicking or control clicking on the interface, then dismissing the context menu that comes up seems to make the UI active and clicking on something works easier. Not sure why that would be the case, but it seems to help.

Anyway, thanks for making this. I now have an actual reason to use dashboard.
