Tips for Timberwolf Beta

I thought it might be helpful to have a forum topic focusing on tips to make the Timberwolf beta more useable. So here's my first tip:

If you can't get your Bookmarks to work, install the Add-On called "Super Start 3.6.3" and you can have your main sites readily available when you open a new tab. This add-on is nice and customizable. You can also set it to be your default home.

Second Tip:

Use the AmiSnap commodity to iconify Timberwolf.

Third Tip (as already told in the TW thread)

Go to Tools/Options/Advanced/General and the Browsing part

UNcheck "use autoscrolling"
UNcheck "use smoothscrolling"

This should get rid of the 100% while scrolling and should make it overall a little snappier

Any tips for getting Timberwolf to start, if it fails to start? (I guess I might need to delete it's profile folder?)

EDIT: Can someone please tell me which folders I need to delete to stop Timberwolf crashing on start-up? I'd rather not have to reinstall it again. I saw someone mention which folder(s) somewhere else (maybe another site) but I can't find it again :(

I noticed that deleting the CurrentUserProfile folder something help solving some crashes, but not always...
duno what else to do in that case and so only way to solve was to reinstall it...but when it works was better than nothig :)

However atm better to use Timberwolf only to do some tests and OWB(MUI) for the rest...

I find if I start TW from AmiDock, it can crash on me, seems to start OK from its icon.

Is there a way to change the size of TimberWolf's default font? I don't mean for web pages. I'm talking about the font it uses for menu's and stuff. It's kinda big on my 1024x768 screen.

If it crashes on startup, make sure you have enough stack space.

Can (any) clipboard be used? The column selection would be plenty useful.

How do you run it on its own screen. It seems wrong running a browser on the WB screen.

Seems like a good place to start, and basically cos I'm too lazy to look but...

how do we get Youtube to play videos on this ?

I doubt clicking the 'download missing plugins' from Adobe is going to work !

looks really good, it'll be great when its done !

Just go the video page as you would do under any other OS and after a short pause the video will start playing.

Here is another work-around for those who can't get bookmarks working.
Make your bookmark file your TW homepage like this:
1. Copy your OWB bookmarks.html file to the Timberwolf/CurrentUserProfile directory.
2. Select the TOOLS/OPTIONS menu in TimberWolf.
3. In the Startup block of the General tab enter "file:///CurrentUser:bookmarks.html" as your Home Page. Close the Preferences window.
4. When you restart TImberwolf the bookmark page will be displayed so you can click on a link.
5. When you open a new tab, click the home gadget to open the bookmark page.

I'd like Timberwolf to run on it's own screen too, but I doubt they'll do anything about that until the remaining big bugs are fixed.

I guess I might end-up writing an OS patch to redirect Timberwolf's windows to it's own screen...

I don't think you need a patch. I have TW opening on a screen by using some public screen commands. Years ago I wrote a 68k assembler command that changes the default public screen and sets the SHANGHAI bit to force programs to open on the screen I want them to open on.
In this case I created a screen (named Timber) with the Screens utility. Then I added some lines to the Timberwolf startup script that sets the "Timber" screen as the default public screen with the Shahghai mode set, starts TImberwolf and then sets the default screen back to WorkBench. The only downside is that there doesn't seem to be any way to close the screen when TImberwolf is closed.

EDIT: The above method doesn't work as well as I first thought. Even though Timberwolf is running on a seperate screen, the hints (for gadgets etc.) are being displayed on the WorkBench screen. I don't think a program should be doing that but don't know if it's a TW problem or a GUI library.
