Feature Regression: No way to remove taskbar entry


Description Michael Cronenworth 2007-12-17 14:41:42 CET

Build Identifier: 

On previous versions of the notes plugin (1.4.x) there was an option to remove the notes plugin taskbar entry. On version 1.6.0 there is no such option. This is a useful option because it removes some clutter from the taskbar. I always had my notes "Always on Top" so I could always see my notes, but it didn't interfere with my taskbar list. Now it does. Why was this option removed? I'd like to request it be added back.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

This issue is explained in the README file.  The 1.4.x serie did this "not" properly.

From the README file:
You most probably want to tweak Xfwm4 by disabling the “Skip windows
that have skip pager or skip taskbar properties set” (cf. Settings >
Window Manager Tweaks > Cycling).  The reason is that the notes plugin
sets the skip pager hint so it doesn't clutter your pager, but you still
want to access your notes by cycling to them (Alt+Tab by default).

I read pager, why?  sorry, I reopen.
Comment 3 Mike Massonnet editbugs 2007-12-17 16:08:55 CET
Will it be OK to set an option for the taskbar hint, tweakable in the on-coming-or-better-somewhere-in-the-todolist configuration dialog?
Comment 4 Michael Cronenworth 2007-12-17 17:26:48 CET
If you place the toggle for the taskbar hint in the "Options" dialog that will be fine. Thanks.

If it's planned to fix this bug?
It's really exasperate :(
Comment 7 Mike Massonnet editbugs 2008-06-22 17:32:20 CEST
Sorry for the delay.  It is currently possible, but only with Xfce 4.5.  Note: the first alpha version for Xfce 4.6 is due to next week end!

It has been commited into r4688.
