Hey man can you add a new feature to the next version?

-Save icon layout every X minute
PLUS CHECK BOX OPTION:
--Do not save layout in full screen mode (games,video)

Because now "save icon layout" is pretty useless,people is always forget to save layout in right time!
The second option is to prevent performance degrade in heavy games...

Thank you. (D) This option will be really great.

I suppose I can do this, but this could cause lots of problems if it saves during or just after something has moved the icons (remote desktop for example) and then you would lose all of the correct positions...

So while its certainly possible, I'm not sure it would have a very welcome effect?

Thanks,
Phil

yes! IT WILL HAVE very welcome effect, believe me!

the only who moving icons on my PC --- its --- ME!!! so...
i dont believe that here will be some bugs... at least for 90% users

Keep in mind that:
autosave icons every 10-30min its better, than no autosave at all...

So.. i strongly recommend u to check it out... (D) and report back :D thx

I will try and add it as an option, but I will be one of those (many) 10% :) that wont use this because remote desktop which I use a lot moves the icons arround every time I connect (esp. with multi-monitor setups).

I will let you know when its available in a test version or keep an eye out for 1.48 which should include it.

Thanks,
Phil
