Hey knofsky, you have no retore button, for when window is maxed, for some things, FF and explorer windows, clicking the blank space will restore the maxed window back down, but for some apps, like SKS5 and Paint Shop Pro, clicking the blank space will not restore the window. You have no images for the progress bar chunks, just the background, so there is no progress bar movement.

Hey Cavan. Good call on the restore button. Don't know how that got by me. Will provide an update over the weekend. Not sure why you are having problems with the progress bar, though. The background is light blue with a thin bar running through the center. The chunks are not chucks, but a solid metal bar. Anybody else having the problem as described by Cavan? I will research this but it is working fine on my system.

Dear All. Until I submit the update that includes the restore button, the easiest work-around is to right click on the top bar and click restore. In case anyone is wondering how this slipped by me, I never maximize my windows. No room for it on a 12" laptop screen.
Comment #7 Friday, August 15, 2008 6:28 AM
Oooops. Cavan is of course right on both counts. For some reason the second part of the skin for the progress bar got dropped. This will be included in the update upload this weekend. My apologies to all for not spotting this before.

Great blind Knofsky, very much like a stainless steel cutting edge, sharp
Comment #9 Friday, August 15, 2008 1:30 PM
Note to Cavan (and everyone else): both the progress bar and the restore button issues have been fixed. Sorry that some of you had to download twice. I think we're good to go now. Enjoy.

Interesting blind...needed dropshadows on the frames...  
Comment #12 Saturday, August 16, 2008 9:50 AM
Thanks Michael. I actually did play with shadows but after testing how it looked on a variety of WP's, decided that the two-dimensional look sans shadows would provide a cleaner, crisper appearance to more users. Plus, (in my opinion) the feature that draws your eyes is the "air" around the frames. This was lost somewhat with shadows. FYI: I also played with semi-transparent but dropped it for the same reasons.

Congrats on the feature !

Thanks G-man. It was unexpected to see that, but quite the honor considering the who's who of skinners that have been featured in the past.

Then why even comment? It's called trolling ... Nice original theme, keep up the good work
You know what, that fellow Luuucc was just stating his opinion like you just did; it's what designers need to know....why not criticize "Butch" for just stating, "awesome, great job!"...Oh, I see, because he's in line with your opinion...too easy just to give atta boys all the time; personally this blind is NOT my taste either; just a little too busy and intricate in design thus making it hard to see; and the metal themes get a little tiring.....but I applaud his efforts and others that attempt and/or create these blinds; he is very skilled at what he does....

Hello, Something happens here with the All Programs. As your request, there is a something that is not well. I hope you understand that. A hug, Economic. PS. Please see the image:

Hello Economico. You don't indicate whether you are using Vista or XP. After looking at the photo you made, I'm going to guess Vista. Please see comment #18, as he seems to be experiencing the same problem on Vista. I don't have Vista, so the following solution may or may not work. Open Skin Studio 6, open Stainless Steel, click on Edit Start Menu, click on Edit Start Menu again in the new window, and then click on More Programs Arrow. Then click on Painting Margins. In the window for the left margin (green), experiment to see if you can effect change. My suggestion is to try and enter a negative number to see if you can get the panel to move to the left (notice: it may not let you enter a negative number. Sometimes it does, sometimes not.). After entering EACH number you try, the only way to see if it changed for better or worse, is to click on Apply, then open the Start menu by clicking on the Start Button. Unfortunately there is no preview, so keep trying until you have it positioned as needed (change margin, apply, open start menu, etc, etc). If any other Vista users have come up with a solution or workaround, please let us know what you did. Thanks.
