i noticed recently that when i have DU in the background and switch screens back to workbench that there is a DU icon showing in my main amidock. is there any way to turn that feature off? i looked through the included amigaguide files, but didn't find it. apologies in advance if the answer is already in the documentation and i couldn't find it.

DU does create an AppIcon, at the moment there is no way to disable it. I can add this as a feature request for v1.8.

BTW. As quite a few applications show an appicon when running, I find it better to put all programme appicons in a different amidock. I too do not like appicons appearing in the main dock.

I created a new dock, and called it Apps (any name will do) then in the AmiDock preferences choose the new dock in the gadget next to "Place AppDockies in:".

It will not get rid of the DU appicon in v1.7 but will at least keep it (and other appicons) out of your main dock.

Another thing you can do is make the dock hidden and set a hotkey to show/hide it which gets rid of all those pesky dockies until you want them or to make sure it has a titlebar and is minimizeable. Then double click the titlebar to shrink the dock before saving your prefs.
