RE: Ubuntu Unity 14.04.x and Zorin OS 9
Cairo-Dock 3.4.0

When I "mouse-over" "shortcuts" a new window (or I guess sub-window) automatically opens. How can I get the same feature/function when I mouse-over the Applications Menu icon and, for that matter, possibly any other icon(s) in the dock?

This behavior is related to the "subdock visibility" "appear on mouse over" option.

However, the menu isn't considered as a subdock (as a menu, it's taking the window/keyboard focus).

AFAIK, nothing is planned to enable this, but if more people are asking for this, it could be looked into (this doesn't mean it will be possible (in a not too hacked way)).

Well, I guess I will have to just "live with it" for now. Would be a nice convenient option; saves additional "strokes".

Thanks for the response.
