Launching Custom Dockers in CorelDRAW

One of the coolest ways to customize CorelDRAW in recent versions is by adding custom Dockers. This feature was first available in CorelDRAW X4, so users of older versions are definitely missing out. They allow developers to put any feature they can dream up inside of a Docker that works just like the ones that are native to the application.

Some developers supply their custom Dockers with an installer while others require you to manually copy the files to the appropriate folder. Once installed, they are launched from the same place as most Dockers native to CorelDRAW. Just select Window | Dockers from your top menus and you'll get a flyout menu similar to the one shown at right. It is from my installation of CorelDRAW X6. At the bottom, I have circled the custom Dockers I have installed. Just click on the one you want and it will open. I hope you have all downloaded the free Resources Docker shown in my menu.

There may be a problem for some of you. Notice that the menu has quite a few entries on it. In order to see the entire menu, you have to be running a monitor with enough room to show it all. If you have customized the icons on your menus to a larger size (the default is small), the menu takes even more room and requires even more room on the monitor. This can be especially problematic if you have installed a number of custom Dockers.

Please advise how to get rid for the blue powered by "wibiya?" toolbar that your web page shows at the very bottom.
I'm NOT at all interested in having this toolbar loaded whenever I open your page, for example:

There is a down arrow on the right edge of the toolbar that will minimize it. It is part of our page so there is no way to remove it.

I,m SO sorry that you had to add this clutter to your web page....down-arrow or not.
I would have liked to eliminate it completely - at least on the pages I see.
This does not seems proper...but hey, it's your site.

If you don't find it useful, you are welcome to minimize it as mentioned in the earlier comment.
