How upon adding a folder icon to a ring on Sliderdock, the end-user has the ability to create a sub-ring…
I understand this can get very sloppy very quickly, but adding it to about a depth of 2 per icon should still keep it sleek.
An example of how to access this sub-ring would be to click and hold the left mouse button over the folder icon for about 0.8 seconds. This will create a slightly smaller-scale ring - using a customizable skin - that is vertical rather than horizontal.
The reason for this suggestion (for myself, personally) is due to grouping common items in folders. For example, I have one main TOUHOU folder. Inside that Touhou folder are ~20 other folders. Inside each of the 20 folders is the actual target application I want to run. Instead of creating another entire ring filled with the 20 items, I'd rather have one icon that links to another ring - only accessible through that icon - that has the 20 items.
This can also apply to many other scenarios, for example, someone who has MANY documents/spreadsheets/powerpoints. Instead of listing each item individually (and instead of navigating through the much less sleek Windows Explorer), it would be beneficial to have one ring classified as "Work", filled with folders that each provide additional rings with icons to the organized target files.
Ultimately, there will be no more than two rings visible at a time, and only one ring will be operable at a time to save on CPU.
Sliderdock is so nice, it'd be great if we could use it to replace the entire Explorer interface altogether… Unless someone needs to delve into system32 or something…
