WindowBlinds 7 Beta 2 bug reports

Wednesday, August 5, 2009 by ZubaZ | Discussion: WindowBlinds

Beta 2 of WindowBlinds has been released.  This build focuses on UI enhancements.

The previous UI is still the default from Impulse.  You can access the new (amazing!) UI from your start menu, or from the button in the old UI (screenshot)

 

Post anything that looks odd.  Make sure to give us your WB system information from the WB app, your OS (including 32 or 64 bit), and if it's hard to explain (or even if it isn't) a screenshot.

I got it to work when I click on the old windows blinds GUI there is a tab in left hand corner click to open new interface, the new interface does not open automatically on it own
Go to the start menu/all programs and make a shortcut to WindowBlinds beta 2. That shortcut will launch the new UI.

 

I have no trouble opening up the new GUI everytime.  I always open up WB config by right clicking on the system tray icon and picking Config WB.

Just wanted to take the time and compliment the folks on WB 7 beta 2. I had nothing but problems on my Aero-less machine with beta 1. But beta 2 works just great!  I get the previews now, get a dropdown for choosing which subskin I want, and even now get to use some of my "old" favorite Vista skins. 

This is really great -- keep up the good work!

Win7 at first and now on XP...some substyles are dropping the taskbar buttons down a pixel and drawing double taskbars at an odd size...a 30 pixel taskbar will be 61 pixels when doubled...that shouldnt even be possible.

What build does WB show under about WindowBlinds?

Sorry about my lag on this. I missed that reply above.

My start button is still getting clipped, but not as bad. Only about 2-3 pixels now. Animation is still hit-and-miss. It's like I have to hit the one EXACT spot for the start button animation to work.

Build 192 resolves that issue.

Reset your data in Impulse and see if the latest buid doesn't show up.

I did this, but Build 192 did not show up.

Mirsguy:

Saw the post about build 192, did the Impulse reset data, was told about Impulse update, installed it, reopened WB, saw it update WB 7 to the August 5th date -- but the version still shows as 191.

Am I missing something?

I must be missing the same thing you are. You just described my experience.

Sorry to keep bringing this up ... but ... it's been a week since the last post, I've done two Impulse updates in that timeframe, and still, WB 7 shows the 8/5/09 date and build 191. 

So, any idea when we are going to actually see build 192?

Also, apart from sorting the items in the Desktop tab by last update, is there any way to see what "updates" are applied when Impulse is updated?

Still 2 issues :

- Per App on apps on a network drive seems to be broken

- Teamviewer still has a missing titlebar (was the same with WB 6)

hmmm... apparently I'm the only one who has an issue with the minimize button. Have been using pale moonlight II by jazzmjr for a month now and never had an issue with any of the buttons. Since the upgrade (which is spectacular btw ) I can click the min button in any window to my hearts content and nothing happens. I have to go to task bar and right click to the minimize in that menu to get it to go down.

Same here.

Explorer backgrounds don´t work for me with win7 64bit.

Using Vista Ultimate -

1) explorer texture dissappears when you maximize the window

2) When selecting a folder from the folder tree the text dissappears after selection and you roll the mouse away.. Aero Executive design..

The beta is really awesome stuff.. And I know work in progress!!

One nice feature, because window 7 supports themes, is an option to save the whole thing as a theme

Explorer backgrounds not working on 64 bit Windows 7 is a known issue that has been resolved internally.  The next update will fix this.
