Super skin, crisp, clear, practical and fully usable on a day-to-day basis.

Just one comment on top of above is that I can't read any tooltips, they are white on light beige. The colours need to be of higher contrast. Also, you don't appear to have set the height of toolbars correctly and the bottom few pixels are getting overdrawn by the main window (for example, see Stardock Central). Thanks for your hard work.

That toolbar thing has been annoying me since I started. I can't get it to look right, but I will keep trying. Thinks for the pointers

Working on an update, but until my upload section get working correctly, it'll have to wait.

Any site admins wishing to help...email me please.

rjsmith this does look awesome and I'm especially pleased by the blue colors used in the taskbar and window border. I agree with ericdrum , I would like a non-compact start menu version where both columns can fit the icons and program titles.

When I highligh text, the font color changes to white. Would you mind changing the highlight color to something darker?

Here's what the window borders look like in Mirc

And in Photoshop

Perhaps it's the same issue with Eclipse?

the design style is very nice.. simple but clean and flat, without the edges and distractions of the normal windows theme and fancied up custom skins. Runs quickly. I hope you continue to refine.

I really enjoy this skin.. I'm really snooty about what windowblinds skins I like and this one definately made my top 10 list I think it's much better than 3 stars. AMAZING first try! I look forward to your future submissions

Although I personally wouldnt want to use an all blue skin, you did a great job on it anyway.

5 Stars.

Thanks for that post. I need these kinds of posts to help me refine my skins. The problem here is that I need to update the ui for non translusent windows. Until I can do that I would suggest putting a restriction on skinning those programs that you have problems with. You can do this in the Windowblinds Config window.

Thanks guys, maybe with this update I will get another star...

Thanks SSGG, I am glad that you like it.

Anything about the skin that annoys any of you, let me know, and you could be the next contestant on the...oh wait...nm. You might see your input put into the next update.

Very nice skin, will use it now it has full menu. Thanks, Jim.


No problem

Well the update didn't fix it yet. Here's what it looks like with XP Format:


Now here's how it looks with Dogma by Brewman:


It's still not stopping me from using it though.

Also, is anyone else not seeing the thumbnail of this skin when browsing in the window blinds configuration? You might want to check on that RJ.
