Some comments:

  1. When clicking 'Dock' on another monitor, other than primary, it always docks to primary. This can, at the moment, be resolved by 2. Can you have it dock to the current monitor, when the button is clicked?
  2. The dock does not actually dock to the screen. As a result, it can be moved anywhere, and resized, while still thinking it is docked. Also, it does not appear over other content, despite being docked. Horizontal sizing is appropriate, but it should really be attached and unmovable.
  3. Is there any chance of having an option for letting it auto-hide until the mouse moves over it? Have it move/size almost all the way off the screen (but not just "move" or it will show up on other monitors.").

Thanks

about 3, how would you like to show the window, by moving the mouse over the edge of the screen?

Yes, that sounds about right. Normally there's about 1-2 pixels showing, indicating that something is there, docked.

(Also, would there be a way to dock it to the left side of the screen, by chance?)

Thanks for all of your work on this great tool.

I have released a new version with some of the requested changes; the window will now be "locked" and appear above other windows. you can also dock the window to other screens/monitors. lets give it a try and see how it goes.
thanks a lot for the feedback.

about auto-hiding the window, ill create a separate issue for it. the question here is how to make the window "slide" to the side, when the window is docked to the primary screen and you have a secondary monitor.

I can also make the background blur like the Windows 10 action center. let me know what you think.

thanks

here's a link to the auto-hide-window feature request: #67

As a start, ill make the window auto-hide when losing focus.
