DM gone in V11.6 b8?

Post by Psykocyber » Thu Mar 20, 2008 10:03 am

I have just installed the new version of Avant, but now the DM is nowhere to be found. Is this correct or is my eyes just illuding me?

It seems to be gone.
Also, It's impossible to attach the management bar to the Window Tabs bar.
It seems like I'll revert back to build 4.

http://avant.it-mate.co.uk/dl/Avant_Bro ... ild_04.exe download link for the old version. I'm installing it right now.

[EDIT] Installed... nice to have the DM back.

A bar with all the buttons like "New Window", "Close All Except the Current" etc...
It was attached to the window tabs bar in the previous build.

Its funny..lol People plead and beg to get the system buttons moveable again and then it happens.. I for one didnt mind them being on the tab bar.. They made less of a mess in the header. No offense to you guys though. We have lived with the buttons being down there for a very long time now. But yes the DM is gone in this build. I can't say whether its gone for sure though.

Also, The line in the mouse gesture is gone.
The main reason why I'll revert back is the download manager.
The Management bar and mouse gestures are just 2 "minor" reasons...
Edit:I was wrong. It isn't gone. It's an optional feature now. You can enable it under Tools>Avant Browser Options...>Mouse>Mouse Gestures

I like the new features in B8, but I use the DM alot. So I miss it, I really hope it is not gone for good.

I didn't mind it, either. But, I think the other big difference now is that we have the Add-ons bar which, in my case, took the place of the old System Bar. Now I have a rather full toolbar of Add-ons up in that default upper right corner and no good place to put the Management Bar.

Why in the world can't we use the tab bar or the status bar... we've never been able to combine it with something.

Yes, but when the Add-ons bar was introduced, the system buttons were locked onto the tab bar. We lost the old "System Bar" and then gained a new "Add-ons bar." Now we have the system bar back, but called the Management bar and, for me, who is also using the Add-ons bar, there's no good place to put the Management bar. That's why I, too, liked it on the tabs bar. I'd like to maybe add the previous and next window button, but I don't have the room.

I like the new bar. You can customise it to look like the old one, just move it around.

No, you cannot, since you can put it anywhere EXCEPT for where it was, that is on the tab bar where it belongs... as Hornakapopolis said above, we've never been able to dock anything either to the status bar or the tabs bar, which is the biggest pity.

Yes you are correct, you can not put them back on the tab bar, But I can now put them where I used to have them. In the upper right corner where I wanted them.

One thing I do find odd is that the Next and Previous buttons are now reversed from what they used to be (Next was on the right)

Reverted back to build 4 and lost the list of downloaded files in the DM. :-(
