Hi.
I apologize for my English, but it is my second language.

I started use Object Dock.

I am using Vector Cell Black in ObjectDock. And I have a problem with spacing between icons.
As separator is, therefore, are too large. When there is no separator, there is no spacing between icons.

I tried to use the guides but not found solution.

How to reduce gaps.
If anyone can help me?

My bacground.ini for Vector Cell Black in ObjectDock is:

Code: xml
  1. [Info]
  2. Name            = Vector Cell: Black
  3. ProportionalStretch = 1
  4. [Background]
  5. Image            = background bottom.png
  6. LeftWidth        = 100
  7. RightWidth        = 100
  8. OutsideBorderTop    = 15
  9. OutsideBorderBottom    = 18
  10. OutsideBorderLeft    = 50
  11. OutsideBorderRight    = 50
  12. [BackgroundTop]
  13. Image            = background top.png
  14. LeftWidth        = 100
  15. RightWidth        = 100
  16. OutsideBorderTop    = 18
  17. OutsideBorderBottom    = 10
  18. OutsideBorderLeft    = 50
  19. OutsideBorderRight    = 50
  20. [BackgroundLeft]
  21. Image            = background left.png
  22. TopHeight        = 100
  23. BottomHeight        = 100
  24. OutsideBorderTop    = 50
  25. OutsideBorderBottom    = 50
  26. OutsideBorderLeft    = 18
  27. OutsideBorderRight    = 15
  28. [BackgroundRight]
  29. Image            = background right.png
  30. TopHeight        = 100
  31. BottomHeight        = 100
  32. OutsideBorderTop    = 50
  33. OutsideBorderBottom    = 50
  34. OutsideBorderLeft    = 15
  35. OutsideBorderRight    = 18
  36. [Separator]
  37. Image            = separator top-bottom.png
  38. TopHeight        = -6
  39. BottomHeight        = -6
  40. [SeparatorTop]
  41. Image            = separator top-bottom.png
  42. TopHeight        = -6
  43. BottomHeight        = -6
  44. [SeparatorLeft]
  45. Image            = separator left-right.png
  46. LeftWidth        = -5
  47. RightWidth        = -5
  48. [SeparatorRight]
  49. Image            = separator left-right.png
  50. TopHeight        = -5
  51. BottomHeight        = -5

well forget the default separators ! the space between the icons\objects depends on the icon size not every skinner set this parameter so you have to add manually the following lines to the .ini file:

[Tile]
Image = Docktile.png
ResizeIconByPercent = 95;
OffsetIconByPercentX = 50;
OffsetIconByPercentY = 50;

 

moreover you need (in the same .ini file folder) a transparent\blank .png named Docktile.png, to have more space just decrease the ResizeIconByPercent to 90\85\...

btw embedded in my last dock skin "IconsCatcher Dock" you can find a transparent .png ready to be copied and used  

then you can use a dedicated icon as separator (in this case you'll have also the reflections), check the IconSeparator idea (animated)

That is a great work around frankell. I am wondering if icons with a larger transparent boarder around them will do the same thing?

the answer is yes, but every user should customize all the icons one by one ... a really hard work indeed !

actually I learned the work around from the masters old school but the icon\separator idea (static and animated) was my idea to resolve the separators issue check also the Separator Dock and Separator Dock II
