In-Place Customization
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 etc.

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.


Automatic Upgrade Notification
RipBAR 2003 can now notify you when software updates are available. How often this check is made can be configured in RipBAR's Options dialog.
