The fix for the start menu in xp home looks good, but still does not line up when you compact the menu

I like your skin a lot, but have problems with the taskbar at the top of the screen. The start button is "clipped" at the bottom of the task bar - not rounded like it should be...and the right side of the start menu is "missing" both in compact and regular modes

Ah, thanks, I see that. I've just fixed that and it will put that in the next update, including cherry, mint, and white versions.
So stay tuned...

I can't edit comment #28, so after a reboot, the bottom of the start button is now there, but there's a thin line even with the bottom of the taskbar, maybe 3 or 4 pixels wide, that cuts across the button, where my wallpaper image shows through - makes it look like the button is divided into two segments. The problem with the start menu being cut off on the right side disappeared after a restart though.

There is a bug in your skin. If you're in IE7 maximized and you open a link that opens a "new" IE7 window rather then a tab in "window" format (i.e. not maximized) the window DOES NOT get skinned. You have to maximize it and for it to skin it. Please fix this.

Fred, I didn't see your comment before I posted, that's why I didn't respond. But, I do see what you're talking about. I've tried fixing that problem, but I have not had any luck with it yet. So, if anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it.
Derek,
Make sure your WindowBlinds settings allow for wallpapers to be applied with the skin. (see image below) As for the icon package... there isn't one associated with the skin, so you'll have to download one yourself. To get the icons to work you'll also need Icon Packager. (WindowBlinds only applies skins, not icons) You can get that here: Link



JRSCCivic98,
I don't think that's a problem with my skin. I tried opening links in a 'new window' with IE7, and the windows were always skinned. I never had the problem your talking about. But, if you've tried the same thing with other windowblinds skins, and it worked, then I will try my best to find out what the problem is.

^^^ Yeah, it doesn't happen if you right-click and then choose open new window. It happens with some links that trigger a new window. I think I was on like Yahoo news or something. The "open in new window" skins fine, so you won't find it that way. Another thing that I see (maybe it's me) is that the buttons for the favories on the left of IE7, when you "mouse over" but not click to light up the button, the icon doesn't is not centered with the button. I don't seem to have this visual issue with other skins. Otherwise it looks good.

Patrick24 you did it again! Spawned out of the shadows of your "Ceirous" masterpiece and into the spotlight!

This blind is perfection! A flawless diamond (at least on my system) although the guys are right about the logoff, but oh well.

I for one am one of your biggest fans, this skin is a beauty and the wall screams!!

Top notch attention to details from who I feel is one of the best designers on earth!

I don't know how in the world you keep cranking out masterpieces Patrick! Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaang!

Your work is priceless and your style is unmistakable!

Nice. The only thing I don't like is the start button "orb" - it looks a little rough to be honest. Oh, and can we have a version of the wallpaper without the text please?

Comment #36 Wednesday, December 27, 2006 9:44 AM
Oh, you're right. I forgot that on XP home the 'Turn off computer' button is longer that XP pro's 'Shut down' button.
Thanks for pointing that out. I'll fix that in my next update.

Nice skin. I like the black with the brushed metal and the red glow effect. The only thing I noticed right off was the image that surrounds the Log Off and Turn Off My Computer buttons on the start panel aren't aligned. The Log Off image and half the text hang off the image to the left side. Other than that it looks good. If you could get that fixed I'd love the update.

This skin is great except I am having a problem with the task bar disappearing when it is at the top of the screen (I like to have it at the top and set to auto hide). If you can get the task bar to be visible, this skin would be one of my favorites.

I thought I fixed that... Have you tried deleting the old version first then applying the updated one?

Derek: I'm glad it's working for you now.

JRSCCivic98: Thanks for the clarification. I'll see what I can do about that.
