Panel\015\012\015\012subtle comes with two panels, one at the top and one at the bottom of the screen. The location of both panels is fix and cannot be changed, the height is determined by the max. height of the font and can't also be changed directly. Per default only the top panel is used, it's up to the user to enable the bottom panel or disable either one or both.\015\012\015\012Using subtle's panels is no must, foreign panels can also be used as long as they support the WM_STRUT or DOCK window type properties. If this is not the case, subtle can be advised to spare some parts of the screen with the OPTION[:padding] option in the config.\015\012\015\012Both bars can contain different items and will be hidden when empty.\015\012\015\012Following items are available:\015\012\015\012| :views | List of views with buttons |\015\012| :title | Title of the current active window |\015\012| :tray | Systray icons |\015\012| :sublets | Catch-all for installed sublets |\015\012| :spacer | Variable spacer |\015\012| :separator | Insert separator |\015\012\015\012All items can be used freely in any combination across both panels but besides :spacer and :separator only once. When using sublets the catch-all item :sublets will display all in a block, but it's also possible to place sublets independently as standalone item on the panel by adding the name of the sublet as item name (like clock) into one of the panels.\015\012\015\012Here are some examples:\015\012\015\012
PANEL = {<\015\012  :top    => [ :views, :title, :spacer, :tray, :sublets ],<\015\012  :bottom => [ ]\015\012}\015\012\015\012PANEL = {<\015\012  :top    => [ :tray, :title, :spacer, :sublets, :spacer, :views ],<\015\012  :bottom => [ :clock, :spacer, :mpd ]\015\012}\015\012
