Stardock Closed for the Holidays

Stardock's offices will be closed in observance of the holiday season from December 19th until January 5th, 2015.

During this time there will be a delay in answering support tickets, so we ask for your patience during the holiday period.  While we will keep tabs on the tickets during the break, we will respond to them as quickly as possible upon our return.  

On behalf of the Stardock staff we wish you a happy holiday season and look forward to the new year!

A resize feature

Wow fences is a great application! But i have some suggestions on the further development of fences.
I think fences will even be nicer if there is a little button where i can click to make it grow and display all the other icons that are hidden. Using fences the desktop looks neat and is very organized but considering there are already plenty of fences the user needs to resize each one of them. Although fences have a scroll bar to view other hidden icons a user ( like me ) may even like it to just resize the fence to view immediately all of the icons thus easier for the eyes to locate the icon which i need to click.
Most users pick desktop wallpapers that suits them well and may not like plenty of fences covering out his / her favorite wallpaper. I saw plenty of videos on you-tube where someone is making a demo of their own fences showing how powerful fences is, however, most of them set-up plenty of fences on their desktop and fences appeared as if it were just a rectangle drawing on their desktop wallpaper. My point now is, it is nicer to have fences ( but not so many so it won't cover out my favorite wallpaper ) on the desktop that can hide plenty of icons and that have a grow button to show up the hidden icons just like how a menu.
I hope this will contribute to the further development of fences.

An interesting idea, though it may be tricky to implement...  Worth passing along.

I have a slight variation on the suggestion.  Instead of having a button that one would need to click, why not have the fence expand to show all the items when you mouseover?  This would allow one to have smaller fenced areas, but still instantly be able to see all the icons in a fenced area and click on the one you want.  This would make Fences an A+++ application as far as I am concerned.
