I have the most current version of object dock on a couple different W7 machines.  I'm noticing some docklets are blurry, or the image look almost doubled.  It gets crisp when you hover over it.  I'm guessing this is just a simple setting, but I'm not sure which.  Any idea?

I think he may be referring to the systray, and yes, 16x16 icons blown up to 32x32 or larger don't look so hot. All that can be done is to replace them with better icons in a larger size.

I was able to recreate the issue enabling the ghost-mode feature (Home > Effect > Animation > click on Zoom)

control if you have the "Enable ghost-mode" checked and naturally unchek it

you can also edit the zoom quality and try different settings

if nothing good happened try to click on the "None" Animations and tell me if the issue is still present

This may or may not be the case for me. The background will come to the front over my docklets. When I mouse over it, it goes to the background and all is well. When I'm not mousing over it, the background is out in front of the docklets.

 

I suspect this is more because of the Windows 7 theme I'm using causing a conflict. But Shouldn't I be able to use different window themes and have this still work? 

 

Thanks

Thanks, I did try to change the background, no go. I tried the icon transparency settings, no change.

 

Changed windows theme and thought it was okay, not. 

 

Oh well....
