Version: 7.3.3 beta
Release date: August 14, 2016
Beta version is not fully tested and can contain bugs. If you found any bug please contact us. But we are working hard to make beta versions as stable as possible. In beta version you will find many new features that come with next release of True Launch Bar.
IMPORTANT: Please make the toolbars backup before installing the beta version. This will help you to restore your toolbar if something will go incorrect.
New features in the beta version:
- Per-Monitor DPI-Aware
- Option to use default shell icon sizes.
- Always visible toolbar tag
- Windows Jump Lists support
This beta version is Per-Monitor DPI-Aware. This means you'll get the proper scaling of icons and text as well as menus and toolbars sizes. Also with Per-Monitor DPI-Aware the Make Screenshot plugin is working well with the Standalone True Launch Bar.
Please note, you should turn on the option Applay DPI scale factor to enable scaling.
The feature is still in development and if you'll find any problem with scaling, please contact us.
Option to use default shell icon sizes.
Now you can use the icons sizes defined by shell. You'll find the option in TLB Settings->Options->Icons Sizes.
One more changes with icon sizes: now TLB takes uses the condition "Less then Large Icons Size" instead of "Less then 32" to define small icons. This change will improve the view modes on the systems with high DPI.
Always visible toolbar tagNow the toolbar tags can be always visible. Just turn on the option Toolbar tag always visible in the toolbar properties. To find the toolbar properties, right-click the empty space of toolbar and select "Toolbar properties" in the menu.
Windows Jump Lists support
Now True Launch Bar supports the Jump List. Jump List is a feature introduced in Windows 7. This feature allows you to view recent documents and tasks in a program that is pinned to your taskbar. With True Launch Bar you don't need to pin the application to the taskbar, just add the shortcut to True Launch Bar, move mouse pointer to the shortcut and you'll see the jump list in the popup tip.
What to do if you don't see jump list for application:
- Check the option "Show jumplist" in the TLB Settings->Options->General. Also you can control the number of items in jumplist.
- Try to copy shortcut from the Start Menu or desktop to True Launch Bar. Shortcut have some information for finding jum plist and recreating shortcut helps sometimes.
- Create the new shortcut from aplication executable. This will solve the problem with MS Word for example.
