... I also forgot to mention, this WindowBlind contains 3 custom true type fonts I made for this skin.

Chas there are actually mostly some text issues on all the OS'S. I think this person makes their own fonts. In many areas they are not working visual wise. All and all much better then his or hers first skin. 

codewar65==== I'm not knocking your skin just stating the issues. If you wish to PM me with your email address I would be happy to advise you and help if you want it. Either way keep skinning. The main thing is for you to like it and then fix things so it will work for all.

I can only assume 10. That is what I have. I do not have an XP, Vista, and 8/8.1 systems to test these out on.   There are some issues with fonts scaling incorrectly, but that is not the fault of WB. It's the fault of Windows 10 and it's new UI.

I tip my hat to Stardock to trying to keep up with all the stuff that Microsoft nails onto each new version of the OS. I am somewhat familiar with low level API and I would sum up Windows as a nightmare to standardize software development. They encourage developers to develop custom controls and the ones available intrinsically to the OS are not standard at all. There must be a dozen different ways to draw a button control on a form for example. Windows 11 (if there is ever one) should stop trying to be backwards compatible, and lay down the law on how stuff is to be rendered on the screen, instead of tacking on more nonstandard APIs.

I appreciate the offer. I may take you up on that.  I like my pixel fonts but like I mentioned, they do not play well with Windows in some cases. That and I only did code points for ascii 32-126 so they are far from complete.  I may just dump my fonts and use a standard font in the next update.

I'm on Win 8.1 and I don't see any issues at all. The fonts look like what they should be.

I do believe it needs to be set inside your WindowBlinds Wallpaper setting.

Open SKS and click on backgrounds.

Note: If you made the wallpaper you can include it. If it's someone elses wallpaper you need to include permission to use as you wish. Include the permission when with the WB when you upload it.

You can use any wallpaper with your screen shot as long as you are showing a parts (s) of the WB.

It is included with the WB. See below of screenshot of inside SKS. It is my own wallpaper. I raytraced the CPU from POV-Ray source that I wrote from scratch, with a black outline around the result that I produced in a program I wrote in C#, onto a 2 color dithered radial gradient that I made in Corel.


Unless I am doing something wrong.

That is what it should look like.  NOTE: Not sure you have to do this but after I add a wall in SKS I open any section in SKS and hit apply. 

Make a new WB in SKS and the wall will be available again by selecting it in Windowblinds after you install it again.

I tweeked a few minor things (will be description of skin above) and reapplied the wallpaper then rebuilt the WBA just to be certain the image is set correctly. Thanks for your help.
