Today I had some time to test this app a little bit. I must say I love the window swapping by hotkey. It does exactly what I want. When a new window is open it places it in a slot automaticaly. From there on I can just use hotkeys and have disabled the dragging and dropping, perfect
. A big thank you to you, sir!
However I have also found some bugs. I configured some slots for my pokertables, ofcourse all with a hotkey. When I later went back to the Configure window to add some more slots, I found that for a lot of slots the hotkey showing "None" while I had given them a hotkey (randomly, sometimes all of them, sometimes a just a few). If I just closed the Configuration window there was no problem because the hotkeys just kept on working. I guess there just not showing in the Configure window and when saved ofcourse the hotkeys don't work anymore.
Secondly, when cloning a slot that has a hotkey set, the new slot gets the same hotkey as the old one. I think the new slot should have the hotkey set to "None" in order to prefent double hotkeys.
Also concerning cloned slots. Sometimes when I cloned a slot (that has the show option enabled) and I use the show option on the new slot in order to move it (using the x,y boxes in the shown window), when I uncheck the the show option again it hides the original slot window (the one that has been cloned, the wrong one). If however I edit the position of the new slot in the Configure window while it is showing and then uncheck the show option it works properly. This is not a big problem at all, just a little strange.
So far for the bugs, I also have some sugestions/requests, if you don't mind. It would be cool if along with the normal cloning we could clone a slot to the left, right, top or bottom of the original slot. For instance If I have a slot at location 0,0 size 10x10, and I clone it to the right, the cloned slot would be size 10x10 ofcourse and the location would be 10,0. It seams that there would be plenty of room for those buttons in the window that we get when enabling show for a slot. Either that or you could make the current clone button in to a dropdown menu (or idealy both ofcourse). This way it will be very eazy and quick to create slot layouts. Along those lines it would also be nice when a slot that has show enabled gets cloned the new slot also gets show enabled.
Finaly, the request I would like to see the most: When using hotkeys instead of swapping the window that is in the slot the mouse is over, swapping the active window. Ofcourse the app would have to check if the active window is in a slot currently. Otherwise it might create some problems if I have five windows and only four slots. I think this is much more natural and this way I could use the keyboard via pokerpad to activate the window I want to move and thereby avoid using the mouse all togetter
right now it works ok for me, but with this change it would be perfect
Anyway I love PlaceMint (and The Opener as well). Thanks a lot.
