Hi there ... Thank you so much first of all for sticking with me. I couldn't ever download the zip files I tried several ways but nothing ever worked. BUT . . . I FOUND MY OLD 5/9/2007 copy of Act.DevNet.MiddlePane.dll.
I successfully added it to C:\Program Files\ ACT for Windows\Tools, then I went to ACT Design Layout\Contact and right clicked on the ToolBox to pull up the customize window. I checked the .dll and then I pulled the MiddlePane icon onto the layout. I saved, then exited to the program.
Then I went to the instructions you linked to earlier
Here is how to make Middle Pane works with Act 2011 or higher, even ACT v16.1.
When I wen t to the properties of the MiddlePane.dll I didn't see the security feature to unBLOCK so that this could work.
Okay ... I reallly, really appreciate your guidance. if you could help me get this to work you would be MY HERO.
Thank you for taking the time to help and understand. B.Blu

I created an installer for MiddlePane and added it to my list of other addons and provided a link to it. That should make it simpler for other people to install it in the future. It should work with at least ACT! 2011 through ACT! v16. I may update it a little from time to time in the future (making the tabs sticky, etc.). I did make a minor update to this one. I reduced the font size of the middle pane header so that it takes up a little less screen space. It's free and you can find it about half way down at the following link: www.adsprogramming.com/products.htm
P.S. For those of you using custom tables from Topline you can drag and drop their tabs on the middle pane too. I haven't tested it with Durkin's custom tables yet.

Hi Stan, I was looking for this plug-in and found your post. Thanks for that! Did you happen to make the tab sticky or any other modifications? Just curious.
Thanks & Happy New Year!

I haven't done anything else to it. Did you need something in particular?
