How do you find the wallpaper again? I like it but it's not as seamless to install as others...why.

Thanks.

There is a small bug in the skin. If you click on the "minimize" button, the window enlarges to full screen. If you click on it a second time, the window minimizes.

Nice work, great skin.

Tim, I was able to fix the "bug" I mentioned earlier by going into skin studio and making the change.

Great skin.

For those having trouble getting the wallpaper out and don't have winzip and are using the built in windows .zip stuff. simply go to a folder and go to the menubar and click tools then folder options, then click the view tab, next make sure to uncheck the Hide extentions for known file types. and click apply Then make a backup copy of the windowblind file your trying to open and change the .wba to .zip by renaming the file then simply open the .zip file and extract the wallpaper out.. make sure when your done you go back and recheck the Hide extentions for known file types so you don't see those again.. hope that helps those people who don't use winzip. I use XP's built in .zip program so this is the way I do it.
Great Skin, I love all your work...

The other way to get the wallpaper is to just install the skin and the go to your Windowblinds folder scroll down to the "Ketix" folder and open it. Inside will be a file called "wallpaper_ketix.jpg" and that's your wallpaper. Essorant, your skins are truly great. What a great artist you are. It's always very exciting to experience your work. Thank you for your efforts.

YMark - this seems to be another bug I'm having trouble reproducing. Could you email me details of what you did in SkinStudio?

Man, this is weird, I'm having the same problems with the title bar buttons in this skin as well. In this one, I have to move the mouse around the minimize and restore buttons to find the just the right spot where they they become active

A Follow-up as I'm noticing a pattern that seems to be related to skin-switching. If I'm running PixOS or Rogue and then switch to Ketrix, Ketrix's titlebar button activatioin areas seem fine. If I'm running Blackcomb or WindowsMAX and then switch to Ketrix, Ketrix's titlebar button activation areas are messed up

One thing that's curious about this skin is that there's an MS Style (no author listed) modeled on it. It is completely identical in every respect I can discern, except the MS Style version has two variants, Dark and Light. The WB version is equivalent to the light. The curious thing is that the Dark version (to my eye, at least) is a lot better than the Light, the difference being that the Dark version changes the tone of documents.
