small box bug
Authored by: r0n on Jun 30, '04 07:04:10AM
I´ve had bad luck with the small box feature:
defaults write wvous-olddesktop -bool false
resulting in mouse clicks were not recognized at the screen position of the small box - Whenever i was clicking in some app window around that area the small box would reside nothing happened.

This was driving me crazy for i had to shift the windows to get the mouse click working, and i was seeking some weeks to find the reason why...

So i got back to the old fashined way again.

Sure, it's the easy way - but fact is, The Blob, from crabby apple software, allows a set and forget blob. . . .of your own design! I'm always on a Powerbook, thus forever obsessing over screen real estate - but maybe you don't like overly-large glossy blue circles either.

Drop any graphic on The Blob's window. Now I have about a half-inch unobstrusive, pale blue green square in the corner below A-Dock's trash. That's plenty large as mouse/trackpad target.

Yeah, you have to enable the blob in Cocktail, Onyx, shell, whatever. Try the "desktop square" option. . very cool.
