RipBAR 2003 now supports in-place editing of items on the bar.
Choose Customize Mode from the RipBAR
menu, and RipBAR enters a design mode where you can:
- Edit the size of items on the bar
- Select multiple items to delete, copy, move
When in this mode, you can't launch items on
the bar. When you click on an item, a sizing rectangle is drawn around it. By
dragging one of the sides of that sizing rectangle, you can resize the item.
Additionally, RipBAR now supports standard
clipboard operations, so you can select one or more items, choose Copy
and then go to another group and select Paste.
New Item Styles
A number of new item
styles are included including 'List' and 'List no icon'. In addition, you can
custom-size each item using the new In-Pace Customization support.
