I'm really loving Elegance, but missing the app icon in the panel for the selected application in the left-hand corner - could you let me know how to re-enable it?

The theme is awesome, but there are some kind of blocks with shadows on the panel.. IMHO, they are ruins the theme..
Hope it will be fixed

They don't come with the theme, and disappear automatically!
