+<varlistentry>
+<term>Drag and Drop</term>
+<listitem>
+<para>
+Simply drag any file from &konqueror; into &kicker; and it's there. Dragging
+also works from the <guimenu>K</guimenu> Menu with any entry. You can
+change the attributes like optional command line parameters or the icon
+by clicking it with the &RMB; and choosing <guimenuitem>Configure
+<replaceable>applicationname</replaceable> Button...</guimenuitem> from the
+context menu.
+</para>
+</listitem>

+<term>Using the context menu to add a &kde; application</term>
+<listitem>
+<para>
+Click the &RMB; on any free space

+Click the &RMB; on any free space
+in &kicker; and choose <guisubmenu>Add Application to

+Application</guimenuitem>. In the newly appearing window, enter <guilabel>Button title</guilabel>
+and a <guilabel>Description</guilabel> of the application in the first two text boxes. Then fill
+in the command of the application you
+wish to add in the <guilabel>Executable:</guilabel> text box. You can
+also append command line arguments, have
+the application start from a terminal, and choose the icon which will
+appear in &kicker; by clicking the <guiicon>gear</guiicon>. If you don't
+choose an icon, the application will use the gear as a default.

+Applications can be moved or removed by &RMB; click and choosing
+<guimenuitem>Move <replaceable>application name</replaceable> Button</guimenuitem> or

+You can also move icons using the &MMB; if you have one. To do this click on an icon using the &MMB;, hold for a second and then drag the icon to its new position.
+Another way to remove an application is by clicking the &RMB; on any free space

+In the <guilabel>Position</guilabel> frame you can choose which

+The <guilabel>Length</guilabel> frame lets you define how much space a panel
+will occupy on the side of the screen which it resides. By default this is on the

+from 1% to 100%.
+Checking the check box <guilabel>Expand as required to fit contents</guilabel>
+makes sure that a panel is at least as big as needed to show every icon and

+The <guilabel>Size</guilabel> frame lets you define how large a panel will be.

+Depending on your screen resolution you may find that the panel takes
+away too much of your precious screen real estate. To save screen space,
+the panel offers an auto hide feature. When this feature is enabled, the
+panel will hide when the mouse cursor has not been moved over it for a
+configurable amount of time. If you move the mouse to the panel's screen
+border it will show up again. Select the <guilabel>Hide automatically</guilabel>
+option in the <guilabel>Hide Mode</guilabel> frame to enable this feature.
+You can also configure the amount of time the panel will wait before
+it hides here. The check box <guilabel>Show panel when switching
+desktops</guilabel> makes sure that the panel will be shown on the new
+chosen desktop. Otherwise, if there are too many applets and icons on
+&kicker;, two small scroll buttons will be displayed to scroll the whole
+panel.
+</para>
+
+<para>
+When the panel's hide buttons are enabled you'll see buttons on both
+sides of the panel, with arrows showing to the screen border. If you
+click on one of these buttons, the panel will slide away in that
+direction. After that, you'll see a remaining show button in that
+corner, which will make the panel show again. Check the appropriate
+checkbox if you want the hide buttons to show up on any side of
+&kicker;. Using the slider you can change the width of the buttons.
