When Minimized to Dock, Program Icon Displays Instead of Window Preview

Pretty much what the title says. I am using Mac OS X Leopard (10.5.8) and I notice when I minimize the application to the dock there is a CyberDuck file icon instead of a window preview (the normal behavior for a Mac app).

I think it would be great to have Cyberduck behave the same way other Mac apps behave in that respect.

  • Component changed from core to interface
  • Priority changed from normal to low
  • Severity changed from normal to minor

This is a feature and following the OS X Human Interface Guidlines. The idea was that the user is better able to distinguish the windows belonging to the Cyberduck application from others.

I suppose I would like to suggest then that the option to display it that way be a toggle so users can choose whether to view it that way. I personally prefer the simple window preview with a small icon in the lower right hand corner which is easily recognizable for me. A bright yellow duck icon should not be too hard to distinguish even at that size. Thanks for listening.
