Please add an option to mimize to the notification area*. I do remember this being requested many times over, even years ago...
Anyway, once a process has been started, it glued onto the desktop. The Avidemux main window is immovable, and it cannot be minimzed, nor put to the notification area.
Yes, I KNOW there's an option for this in the preferences. But first of all: it doesn't work. It's checked and the encoding process DOESN'T go to the notification area. Secondly, it doesn't solve the problem of when restoring it from the notification area, you need to be able to put it back in. Which you can't. So again, for those who insist this is the solution: isn't not.
* some people strangely still prefer the term systray.
Ok, so moving to the notification area by the preferences only works for pass 2. That's clearly a bug. But it still doesn't offer any way of putting it back after restoring it from the notification area.
