If we have several windows opened of a single application (firefox, thunderbird for exemple), sometimes it's not easy to distinguish each fast.
The tooltips display only the first 20 characters of the window's title. Suggestion #1: add a user option to set number of characters displayed in tooltip.
It might also be useful to (#2) have a window preview (thumbnail) or to (#3) highlight the window's border we we hover the window's icon in the task list. These should be optional, of course, set by the user in the task list preferences.
One last thing, it can be really hard to place the window list where we want to, it should (#4) appear as an applet in the Current Items Tab so we can at least control its position.

Hello and thank you for these ideas (and sorry for the delay)

Suggestion #1: add a user option to set number of characters displayed in tooltip.
You can already do that => Advanced mode of the config panel / Taskbar module

(#2) have a window preview (thumbnail)
It's a good idea but as it's already possible to have this feature with some WM like Compiz (with the Thumbnail Window Previews plugin), it's currently not planned to add this feature (but anybody can help us by giving us a patch )

(#3) highlight the window's border we we hover the window's icon in the task list
Good idea
But I'm not sure it's easily possible to do that without the help of WM. The dock is already notifying the WM when the cursor is above an icon (e.g. to draw a thumbnail window preview as Compiz already does): maybe the WM can draw something around a window when it receives this signal. Feel free to propose this idea to the devs of your Window Manager and notify us about that

One last thing, it can be really hard to place the window list where we want to, it should (#4) appear as an applet in the Current Items Tab so we can at least control its position.
I think it's currently possible to place these icons almost everywhere (at the beginning/end of the dock, after/before your launchers, after one specific icon). Where do you want to place them?

When you compose letters to educators of prestigious research schools looking for permission, nothing looks more terrible than an undecided research understudy. Look for counsel early and you will feel and act like you are set up to go up against a PhD or Doctorate program of your decision. Cheap Dissertation Writing Services
