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.

Oh, sorry, but i come from germany and my english is very bad.

I want to create for every WB-skin a diffrent explorer background and if i open WB and apply a skin, then have it automatically his own background.

Hope, you can understand me.

I cannot get explorer backgrounds to work on full screen. They work when I restore down but disappear when I restore up to a full screen.

Another small issue.

Using the old interface I am able to change the color of the Window.

I cannot find this option in the new interface. The reason I ask is that I do not like a dark window in Office products.

That's the problem with the new UI: you can't right now (but you can do in old UI mode ... Hope Stardock will fix that problem fast ... )

I have lost my system tray icons when using any skins other than the default windows theme.  It was fine today until I updated the Window Blinds 7 udpate that was just released.  Any idea what I can do to fix this issue? Or do I need to wait for another update?

 

*EDIT*

Windows XP Pro SP3

Adamant and other skins, not all, minimize and restoring a maximized window, results in thick borders.

I have dual monitor setup and this only seems to happen on my main display, monitor 2, and only when the taskbar is on it.

Windows 7 RC build 7100

Update: With build 220 I no longer have the min maximized problem in the adamant skin, but I still have the same problem in the RIP (and RIP_2007) Skin, in addition to a new problem; Firefox maximized on the second monitor, isn't filling the monitor, it leaves a gap all the way around.

OS is Windows 7 RC-1 64 bit

I just updated to the latest Beta WB 7 aand found it causes a problem in OUTLOOK 2007. In OUTLOOK  2007 if you try to open and start a new message OUTLOOK 2007 quits working, I know this the problem as I repeated it three times by installing the current update and then re-installing a backuped image after the failure of OUTLOOK 2007 in trying to open and send a new message, I was lucky to have a image from 2 days ago

Firefox maximized, isn't filling the monitor, it leaves a gap all the way around.

Since my last WB-update to v.220, i have the same problem, but not only with the maximized firefox.

All my folders are not maximized correctly with all my WB-skins.

Depending on the selected skin, the size of the gaps is a little bit smaller or bigger.

maximized firefox:

maximized folder:

If i choose the orig. Aero-skin in WB7, then "maximized" works correctly.

Since the update to Build 220 any MS Office 2007 application (Outlook, Word, Excel) that I open while it is skinned crashes. Tried multiple skins with the same results, as soon as I remove the skinning everything is fine.

I am having the same problem. Most skins will not load. Two that will are Abase and Plywood. Some that will not load are 100, 7Plus, Adamant, Adrenaline, Aero Executive, Aero Frost, and the list goes on. I have uninstalled Beta 2 and reinstalled WB6 and there is no problem. This problem seems to have started since the Microsoft monthly updates!!

I haven't read all of the comments in this thread so I'm not sure if this has been mentioned yet or not so I apologize before hand if it has but it's late and I want to ask about it while I'm thinking of it without staying up for another 2 hours to read everything .

 

With WB6 if I left it set to sort by install date then any skins I had installed since last rebuilding the list would show up at the very end of the list. I liked this because alot of times I will download skins and not use them right away and with them at the end of the list it was an easy way to see which ones I had not used yet. Once they get mixed into the list of over 500 skins it gets alot harder to recall which ones they were without having to sift through the entire list.

In WB7 though it seems as though it rebuilds the list everytime you open the new interface which automatically puts newly installed skins into the mix rather than at the end of the list. Just wondering if this is going to be this way permanently.
