Great Mod! Very user friendly. One question though, how do you edit the pinned applications?

3.0 update

What's New

• Added "Hot Apps" to help you navigate through Windows faster than ever.
• Added a Calendar module. Useful for the non-procrastinators.
• Added a preference that allows you to set an image as ValliStart's background. For the choosy types.
• A plethora of improvements have been made to the configuration menu. It's now clearer, and goes well with ValliStart's minimal look.
• Added more color options.
• Updated the positioning system.
• Improved the modular spacing to make ValliStart look and feel more consistent.

Hi Jax. I really like Vallistart and have used it to replace my start menu. However I think I have found a bug where shortcuts disappear from SingleRow and DoubleRow.

To recreate the bug do this:

1) Load the Layout Vekl.
2) Add the Module SingleRow or DoubleRow.
3) Add a few shortcuts.
4) Move an empty shortcut row above the added shortcuts.
5) Now, if you press the Win-key to open Vallistart the shortcuts have disappeared and I can not find a way to get them back. Unloading the module, quitting Rainmeter or restarting the pc did not help.

If you need help looking into this just write back.

An idea for a module: something that shows all open windows so you don't have to use Alt+Tab or go to the taskbar.
