Re: [NTLK] Avi's Backdrop - Icons, Heap

As far as I know you cannot put icons on the back drop. I moved the
icons that I use most often to the button bar which significantly
reduces the number of times I need to access the extras drawer.
And for a little extra space I use an extension from Softwarebüro
Müeller called "Extras Layout" This will allow you to adjust Font,
Size and style as well as Icon and button spacing.
I could not find the english version on their current web page but
with the wayback machine
For German version see
Avi's also keeps track of recently used applications and relaunches
them without going to the extras drawer.
