AmiUpdate in AmiDock: hardcore limit of icon size when in AmiDock docky ?

The question is mostly to Simon, but maybe somebody else has a clue as well.

I have one Dock (which I call "AppDockieDock"), to which point out AmiDock to place AppDockies in.

There I have just a ZitaFtpserver, so once I run it, it placed there a tasty icon, of the size I choose in the Amidock's settings for that AppDockieDock, and more precisely it's: Layout/Icon minimum size and Layout/Icon maximums size. That how settings look like (and see the looks of the zitaftp icon at the bottom):

Now, if I run AmiDock (with settings when iconify to place it to AmiDock Docky), I have this:

For first I think ok, it can be just different icons of different sizes: but I compare them: all the same usual size of icons. Even if I just put the AmiUpdate icon as an icon of ZitaFtp and run it, then when that icon on the ZitaFtp, it scales well in both sizes (bigger, smaller, icon scaling) by controlling via AmiDock settings.

But with AmiUpdate, it like it does not matter what I do in AmiDock, nothing changes. I try to lower the size, maximize, scale, etc: no reaction. See, there I just change to some much bigger values, and the ZitaFtp icon increases in size, while AmiUpdate one still stays the same. Can't say on which value, but around 38-42 pixels.

There I set it all to be 64 pixels and can be seen that Zita's one is increased as expected, but AmiDock's one still stays as it:

I also tried to reduce the size, to just 20 pixels, see Zita icons start to be smaller as expected, but AmiUpdate one still stays as it:

The question is: is it just in AmiUpdate code something that needs to be done, to allow AmiDock to control the size of the icon, or, there some bug in AmiDock? Or both ?:) Through as if it works with Zita, then AmiDock sure works, right?

Alternatively, what can be done about it? I probably can just try to resize the icon size in the AmiUpdate/images/dockstrip file, so it will "statically" be 24x24 and so will fit well to the top bar menu, but not sure if it will , because as I see in that dockstrip images are "64", but in the dock they for sure less. So some "scaling down" algo already works.

@All

Hardcore fix did the trick: I just resize the image/dockstrip in SketchBlock just on /2, and everything starts to look like a need. So far for time being all looks clean then.

But, the bug/issue still here which worth reporting.

@Simon

Do you think it's an issue in AmiUpdate?

Tried to submit bug report on amiupdate.codebench.uk so it did not die in the forum posts, and when filling form pressing "add bug", saying "There was a problem saving the submitted bug (), please try again".

I don't know why you think this is a "bug". It simply takes the imagestrip and uses the sizes it presents. As you found out, you can scale the imagestrip to make it smaller/larger and it will just use it as it is.

Are you thinking of adding some sort of scaling to the AmiUpdate prefs?

If so, it may be a while, I have just moved house and none of my Amiga systems are set up right now.

PS: As for the bugtracker, I'll have to look into that

It probably not a bug, but a missing feature. I don't think that Hans with ZitaFTPD adds some special scaling code to support it in the AmiDock. IMHO, AmiDock already scales all the icons when they in the app dock, just for some reason, not the AmiUpdate one. So I just think that maybe AmiUpdate didn't register it as expected for AmiDock, or dunno what. A different way of placing in, etc.

I just expect it reacts as it expected: you have it in AmiDock, and AmiDock has the ability to scale up/down the icons placed in. And it does so, but not with AmiUpdate. Why? Dunno :)
