Great Job BlueDev. These are some really awesome tabs. One correction you need to make in the background.ini to stop the tab image on the farthest left from being cut off, on the horizontal docks when some one is making the dock smaller or has their tabs aligned to the left. is to delete the ContentBufferLeft = 5, ContentBufferRight = 5 lines. They're not needed. The OutsideBorderLeft = 5, OutsideBorderRight = 5 lines set how far your icons are in from the left and right edges. You'd do the same thing with the vertical docks by getting rid of the ContentBufferTop = 5, ContentBufferBottom = 5 lines. You'll see the difference in your tabs onece you try it. This is a dock in my book.

Essencay: Thanks so much. I played around until I had a headache with those and figured I was just running into something I didn't know how to deal with. Looks like I was right. I will remedy that right now and update. Thanks again!

Well, I just love the look of these too. Does the preview reflect the changes you've made per Scribe Essencay's suggestion? I only ask because I wonder what the tabs would look like if they didn't overlap? Not that these aren't great because they are, I'm downloading and plan to use for sure, though now I wish the WB skin was more like these because I like the colors a lot, though I would have only done two bcause the rest can be achived through changing the colors in Object Dock like one the main color of the WB, and then one that's will change colors. But again, these are great...but now I want the WB to be colored....LOL

Thanks TN Brat! I suppose I made them all colors because I find it very tedious to have to go and set the custom color for each tab if I want them all that color. And the WB has each one of these colors (the red is from the start button and active taskbar item, green from the color of the start button on mouse over and other places and blue from the pressed start and other buttons). They also match the colored Retro walls, and again, I didn't want people to have to go and custom color each tab to get it to match as faithfully as these do. And since making each color adds very little to the overall size of the file I figured it would make it easier in the long run for the end user.

Oh, and the change to the .ini isn't reflected in the screenshot because the change was only for narrow docks and cutting the edge off. I wanted the tabs to overlap so that the active tab looked like it was in front of the others.
