bar, and "Widget" as the XCenter widget. The properties tab includes
settings for both the Taskbar and the Widget, so the label is misleading
(implying only Taskbar settings on those pages). In fact, page 2 of that
tab includes Mouse actions, and page 3 has our Exclude filters. Clearly,
the label "Taskbar" is inappropriate.
My suggestion is to rename this tab "List" and to change the title of
the first page from "General" to "Appearance" and splitting the page
into two areas:
What I think I should do is create a Widget tab and use #ifdefines to add the Taskbar tab in the exe build and add the Widget tab in the widget build. The Taskbar tab would be unchanged. The Widget tab would only have the settings that apply to the widget. Pages 2 and 3 would remain the same for both. As for Appearance that would be fine for the Widget but some of the Taskbar setting don't strike me as fitting with that.

What is not mentioned in the ticket is that it would be more appropriate
to reorder the tabs:

Taskbar | Popup | Global | About
Widget | Popup | Global | About
Finally, and also not mentioned in the ticket, is that tabs with only aShould be easy to do. Thanks
single page should not say "Page 1 of 1". In most notebooks, the page
number is omitted.
