Any possibility I'd be able to run multiple instances at the same time?

There are some bugs in the last release :(
For example sometimes I open a folder and then close it, but the other icon remains with their opacity lowered... and sometimes when i delete a shortcut with the "jiggle" option the whole app crash :(

Again I around here ...
As I said before, I love this application!
But now I realize that I find it very boring to relocate all the applications you want. I would like this application to update and let the applications that I have. I would like to update the application and continue to add applications and above.

I love the software!! I'm currently running a few portable versions as PC game launchers. I have two requests...

1. In the ini, "pageMargins.left" doesn't do what I was hoping it would. I feel this particular feature should be added though. Let me explain... The user can customize the icons' distance from the top, vertical space between icons, horizontal space between icons (which is what "pageMargins.left" is controlling), but there is no way to adjust the icons' distance from the left (without also adjusting the right margin). Maybe in the next release that feature could be added. Along with that, I think the ini would be more clear as follows: (NO CHANGE)
pageMargins.left (this would be the feature I am requesting, controlling all icons' distance from the left)
IconVertSpace (NO CHANGE)
IconHorizontalSpace (which is currently named "pageMargins.left")

The end result being that no matter what size the icons are I can CENTER them on the screen. Haha I'm way OCD about that sort of thing. I spent a few hours today trying to think of a reasonable workaround, but to no avail.

2. My second request is to leave the option to use very large icons. In the gui you can only get up to 128px, but in the ini the sky is the limit. I like having that freedom. Please don't change that any time soon.

Hi, you can try to right click XLP and Unchecked menuitem "View--Auto Arrange Icons".
itsbehind's avatar
Auto Arranging has no effect. I've had it unchecked the whole time. Maybe this picture will make what I'm looking for clear...


By default the distance from the left (98 pixels) and the distance from the right (160 pixels) are not the same. I want to be able to fix this, making them equidistant from the sides (displaying all the icons centered on the screen horizontally).

Hi, I had add this function in v1.06 XLaunchpad,please download to test: Open XLaunchpad,Right click on background and select menuitem "View--Set as Default page"
xwidgetsoft's avatar
Thanks,I will add this next release of XLP
itsbehind's avatar
As long as that feature is optional I'm totally for it. Personally, I prefer the first page to open first. A switch to choose the initial page number would be perfect.
xwidgetsoft's avatar
Hi, this feature had been add in v1.06 ,please download and re-install to update. You can set initial page by just switch to the page and right click background and select menuitem [view]--[set as default page]
