Nice looking skin but agree on comments made already. Nice looking logoff/shutdown buttons, but they don't work (also personally I like color in buttons that are clicked. Menus are a little too dark for my tastes as well.
One other note is when I loaded into Windowblinds config it didn't show name of skin or authors name simply it shows up as "Unknown".
I look forward to the updates.
Nice work.

Anytime I have added new skins to WB5, and get that "Unknown"..usually hitting the Rebuild List button will fix it. Now of course if the info's not there to begin with!

The Parse Error:

Nice work!

lypnjtu: where can one get the Styler Toolbar skin you are using in the screenshot?

Nice skin. However, I thought your color selections for Hilight and HilightText were backwards, so I changed them. In your default color list, highlighted items appear lighter -- grayed out -- than other items, which seemed backwards from standard UI behavior. So, in Skin Studio under Miscellaneous/Colors, I changed from this:

Hilight=245, 245, 245
HilightText=103, 103, 103

to this:

Hilight=103, 103, 103
HilightText=245, 245, 245

This makes the highlighted item stand out instead of dropping into the background.

I'm not getting the transparent menu like you have in your screenshot. It's solid. I have WB 5. What is wrong?

Citizen Suk It asked: (an ignominious name to be sure)

Generally this happens when you are using the "Trial version" of WindowBlinds 5. The Trial version will only display transparency items for those skins that come with the program, e.g, "Aura", "Arrow", etc. The full version which you can purchase doesn't have that restriction. So IF you are using the Trial version, that would explain the problem.

Logoff/Shutdown buttons are made at the under the All Programs menu by me on purpose, the two buttons are really not working Normally.

Perhaps there is a communication problem here in regard to the "Logoff/Shutdown" buttons? or perhaps not? hehe The issue which people have brought up isn't in reference to the location of the buttons but rather the "activation" point. Simply put, when you click on either button, nothing happens. To open the Logoff or Shutdown dialogs you have to click your mouse far to the left of the buttons under the Places frame. This is something that needs to be adjusted. I hope this helps clear up any possible confusion.

Tight, fix the log stuff... but yeah, mighty fookin' skin dude...

I like the combination between the OSX brushed metal, and the new Vista UI.

However, like was the Parse error when opening the Control Panel that killed it. Quite a few good "Vista like" skins have had this same issue...wonder why?
Comment #37 Wednesday, April 12, 2006 11:05 AM
Again, very nice, but needs a few tweaks

Although it's a nice touch to see the logoff, shutdown buttons where they are, they don't work in that position when I apply the skin. I see that you have done almost all the classic colors (you missed the scrollbar background...unless that was intentional )
