Latte Dock offset incorrectly affects where windows can be placed
I've setup my Latte Dock to be on the right hand side of my screen, aligned to the top. I've also placed a panel at the top of the screen. Getting this configuration to work is more challenging than it should be.
The non-advanced settings result in the dock and the panel overlapping in a way they shouldn't:
If I enable advanced settings I can set an "offset", but only in increments of 2%. Setting that offset to 2% results in the dock being squished against the panel with no margin space. I would prefer the same amount of space between the top icon and the panel as between the dock icons themselves.
If I set the offset to 4% this creates a band of "unusable space" where plasma won't let me place any windows:
Snapping the window (With Meta+Right) into place will let the window use this unusable space, but the window will be "trapped" inside and unable to move down:
I don't think all of these recommendations are necessary, but if one or several of these were implemented I would not be experiencing what I am now.
- Make Latte Dock aware of panels so that 100% width/height means the space available, not the entire screen length.
- Remove the artificial border on the "short side" of latte dock's invisible window
- Allow arbitrary offset and length by making the numbers next to the sliders editable
- Allow increments of 1% for offset and length
- Allow for pixel-specified increments instead of percentage
