Adw launcher dock issue

Hello everyone,

I apologize for being naive.

I used many launchers and found adw to be the best. No other launcher in my opinion gives that many options to choose from. But there are a few things that I would like the developer to take care of if he could. Is there a way to permanently hide the main dock when I open the app drawer? I just hate it when I see it on top of the app drawer. In launcherpro plus, the dock doesn't remain open when I open the drawer. I do see a home button at the bottom of the app drawer in launcherpro plus, but there's an option for turning that off too. When I open the drawer, I don't want to see anything else. I know about the swipe option to bring up the dockbar in adw, or in other terms hide the main dock if there's nothing in the dockbar, but I don't want to have to do that every single time. Secondly, is there a way to make the dockbar the main dock, as it resembles the zeam dock which I love. If these few things are sorted out, then this will be the perfect launcher for me. Also, should I buy the ex version? Is it a lot better than the free version?

Thank you.
