OK, so now I understand a bit better. I wonder if there's more than one issue
here, though. This 'jumping about' - Connie, could it be that you are seeing
the result of a sort order? By default the application icons on the taskbar
are sorted alphabetically. I didn't like this, and found a way to change it.
Unfortunately, at this moment I can't remember how it was done. I'll look
into that tomorrow and report back.
I haven't tried controlling things by using spacers. I did find that I'm
happier with the panel set to show two rows for open applications. Don't know
whether that will help Connie or not.
New to KDE4? - get help from http://userbase.kde.org
Just found a cool new feature? Add it to UserBase
