Because it continually changes focus and resizes out of the desire size. Thus, for the same reason the embedded script exists is what I want. I'd just like to find a way to use it in a new location.

The menu bar can do other creative things so I don't think it's outside the realm of possibility. That's why I mentioned it. Job done. hehe

Ok. then no, there's no way to dock anything there. But seeing how you can just drag the minilyrics window where ever you like it, I don't see why that isn't a workable solution for you.

That would be the area where you have you're menu bars located. In many case there is a lot of empty space (you could fit more menu bars there), but this user wants to dock a window there.

What exactly do you mean by "menu bar"?

Yes, but I saw nothing in it that would let me put it in the menu bar area.

Have you seen the Embedded minilyrics add-on?

Ability to use empty menu bar?

I like MiniLyrics (as an example) but I find it annoying that it's always in the way. However, there's one area where I have a lot of dead space and that's in the right-hand side of the menu-bar. I've taken the time to resize MiniLyrics to appear in that space and, surprisingly, it would work quite well there if I could get it to dock and stay there.

I suspect several other apps would do nicely there.

Can this already happen or, if not, get it to happen later?
