WOW!!  this blind is soooooo nice and goes perfect with the cursor 

I have been using the cursor since you first posted and now to have the matching blind is truly bringing cheer to my desktop  !  Thank you !!  I love all your blinds....was using Glaze but now Lui has taken over 

p.s. The wp you use to post the cursor would be a great one for the blind as well.  Can you please send it to me ?  I would be forever grateful  !!

Well done, only problem I found was Interneet explorer 8 the bar that has file favorties edit view tools so on and so on the font color is to light to read and you can only see these items if you mouse over them. fix this and it would be a 5 star skin

Thank you for your comments every one, much appreciated.

 

Precyyse52 & Igspence - I have sent you a PM concerning the background of my cursor.

 

OldMsgt - I seem to remember you had the same problem with my Tewl Crohan blind, I have IE8 on a Vista OS on a laptop, & as last time I don't have a problem seeing the text & as I am colour blind, I can only see light & dark shades, I would think anyone can see the text on a light background. I wander if it is something that is peculiar to your computer.

 

tropicalgirl2 - Glad you like the colours, I am afraid the blind I am working on is a very dark one, so probably is not for you. I try to vary my skins, but personally like the brighter ones.

Country, yes and you fixed the problem here is screen shot please note where cursor is placed if you highlight the name it shows as shown in screen shote but the light colored fonts for the menu bar appear white or a very light gray.

Hi OldMsgt,

The text that I changed (with the help of Xiandi) was on the the command bar of IE8 & not on the menu bar.

One thing I noticed on your screenshot is that you have changed the font from the original, (Lucida Sans Unicode) & just wandered if you had unchecked the "I do not want to use shadowed or outline text" button in the font settings in WindowBlinds, as I have a black shadow on the text which I have on the skin text on the menu bar, making it readable on a light background.

IYes I ususally check that box I will uncheck it. at least it will see the outlane of the font, I would rather see a drk font instead of an outline though, it is much better than an outline also next time frame the items on the bar as some skinneres do

Hi, again OldMsgt,

The reason I have kept the white text with a black shadow, is because of the change of colour of the IE8 tollbar by WindowBlinds, which I read about in the forums, but cannot find a link to now, it never ever worked on my IE8, but when you open the browser the toolbar & menubar paints a very dark grey, which reverts to the original light colour when IE has loaded. so I reckoned using shadowed text was the only way I could cover both options, because, like you I like to see readable text in my blinds.

OK I can live with it, but maybe you should contact Xiandi again with a PM on how to make the font a dark colour again, then keepp a post it note on this procedure on your computer for future reference.

OldMsgt, the problem that Xiandi helped me with was a different problem, it was the the colour of the text on the command bar of IE8, which she helped me with & I have used that in every blind I have made since. I do know how to change the text to a dark colour, but have explained above why I do not.

Hi lindsswack, to download any window blinds you need to have WindowBlinds software on on your computer, which can be found here

WindowBlinds will then apply it on your computer when you download a skin.

Yes I got the instruction put in a word pad document and saved it. I had no problem changing font colour. I will work on framing next

Thank you very much, If I had the Patience I would try doing a skin. But alas I am better at snipping certain parts of skins and changing the colours so forth and son to meet my likes and dislikes.

If you look at my current Screen shot you will see what I mean. I was using Steel Skin on it but now have put this skin on with the Font colour modifacation

I just upgraded your Skin to a

I love this skin but have one suggestion. I have seen in many, certainly not just yours, the overall font is very small. There are a lot of us that can't see well. I am aware I can change the font myself but it would be nice to see this great skin with a larger font.

I do not mean to be critical in any way just suggesting based upon what I have seen with a great many skins and thought it worth the effort to comment and let you take it from here.

Thanks again for the incredible skin.
