What made you change to windowblinds? I cant see anything in it that I cant do in msstyles, other than some special tricks it has, and plus ill have to learn the program for developing the themes...

An all in one theme that can do roll up buttons, different placed glyphs, skinned shut downed boxes, skinned explorer toolbars, progress animations, alpha transparent start menu and that is just a a few of the features that WB has to offer.

Of the best is recoloring on the fly for themes, importing msstyles using skinstudio.

Msstyles can't even come close to what WB themes can do.

More options does not mean higher quality. i've seen way more windowsblinds themes that were awefully fugly. Bloated taskbars, overdone glassy huge buttons, non-compact start menus and gaudy bloated window borders. Oh and did i mention bloated?

I simply meant there are higher quality themes because you have more options, msstyles don't have anything extra :)

And yes there are a lot of ****ty windowblinds skins, too many :ninja:

I have a high quality version of the font in the skins folder. You may want to use that one.

Kol has just release an updated version of his Tiger VS. You could give it a look and get some ideas from it, just to make your WB theme even better!

Hey, that was just an idea!! Don't forget that you made me switch from VS to WB, and I've used your theme since the same day you've published it... :)

P.S.: Anyway I like the spotlight icon and the start menu colour, which is a little brighter than yours! ;)

Cheers
