Suggestion for Launcher
« on: November 05, 2010, 10:42:13 AM »
I have Launcher Pro and it's a very good product. Thanks.

Suggestion

There are some situations where I launch the same 2 or 3 applications all the time. Currently, I have to launch each app separately with Launcher. It would be nice to be able to bundle these apps into a single launch icon.

Thanks for posting your suggestion on the forum as it helps me keep track of feature requests! :)

I am planning on adding
  • custom shortcut icons
  • text search / filtering shortcuts
  • improved shortcuts for URLs (which actually got improved in 1.8.4)

I will look into your suggestion about grouping. Maybe one could imagine creating "Launch folders" wherein all shortcuts get executed 1-by-1 in order. This would actually allow one to make some nifty "batch" like operations. I will look into this. It will probably first make it as a feature after the other things above since these are requested over and over :)

But I always listen to feedback, so please feel free to add every suggestion you have. Often if there are a bunch of related features I add them all in one go (since if I am already touching the code, I will need to do testing etc. anyways)

I like your idea of the "launch folder". This would make it possible to either launch all apps in folder or launch a particular app without having to create duplicates.

It would be very nice if this application supported multiple monitors. So you could specify that something opened on the monitor you wanted it to open on. Thanks

Hi Scott,

I will look into supporting multiple monitors for sure. That is a good suggestion :)

Just downloaded the Launcher on my Windows 7 PC today and think it is brilliant...however...would give it a 5 star rating if I was able to drag/drop & attach and PDF or Word/Excel document from the launcher straight into Outlook so that it automatically becomes an attachment in a new e-mail....as I intend to use Launcher to access files I use frequently to e-mail clients, dragging and dropping striaght into Outlook will save me mucho time....I used to use this function with Berokyo for the PC, but far prefer your app as it is more discreet & clean.

Thanks!
Martin

Just for reference, this feature has been added now into [pro] edition :)
