Lucid 1.2

- Updated again

Lucid1-2_full.gif

Long awaited, but finally done.

Changes in 1.2:

- White day text options added

- Event and "Today" styles redone, they flow slightly better

- White days redone: now have a slight shadow to emphasize them

a tiny bit more (make it look somewhat 'embossed')

Snipped from the readme (only a portion). PLEASE READ IT (and the rest):

FEATURES:
------
- Sports five options of display
  - Four of which are different elements shown/hidden (of the large
	calendar) and one which is a mini calendar (shown in screenshot also)
  - Smoked version is included.
  - Now included are white day text versions of the calendar (by popular
	demand)

- General features:
  - The event reminder dialog (at every startup of Rainlendar) is also
	skinned to fit the style of the calendar (also transparent, etc)
  - You can close the event and to-do lists with the small close button
	at the bottom left of each dialog

- Regular/Large size calendar:
  - Clicking the little tabs on the bottom left/right of the calendar
	switches the month to the next/previous month (aka. the Month Change
	Buttons).
	> You have the option of showing/not showing these small tabs
  - If you have events shown on your calendar days, you can choose to have
	it show/hide an exclaimation mark along with the standard "brighter
	background" and "stands out more than regular days, but less than
	Today".
  - Clicking on the year of the calendar toggles the display of the
	events list.
  - Clicking on the month of the calendar toggles the display of the
	to-do list.

- Mini Calendar:
  - A lot smaller than the regular size calendar.
  - Only shows the month, weekday name, and the date.
  - Mouse scrolling does not affect the month (ONLY shows Today, does not
	change according to "selected" month)
  - Clicking on the month of the mini calendar toggles the display of
	the to-do list.
  - Clicking on the weekday name of the mini calendar toggles the display
	of the events list.

================================================

HOW TO INSTALL:
------
1) Extract to X:\Program Files\Rainlendar\Skins\
2) Install Calibri font from the Font folder (if not installed already).
   (X: being your respective local drive or drive of installation)
3) Load skin from Rainlendar.

NOTE: Latest version required (at least version 0.22)

Excellent work, unfortunately I'll not be able to use it :(

I run 1600x1200 resolution and it's just too small for me to read comfortably, also most of the wallpapers I usually use are lighter in color and the text just becomes unreadable.

If you ever made a slightly larger version with darker text then it would never leave my computer.

i have to agree that a larger version would be very helpful. in any case, i will still use this because its just so nice looking.

Amazing work as always! Like a few others have said though, a larger version (if at all possible) would be greatly appreciated... on 1600x1200 that's really darn small!

thanks for the comments everyone. i intentionally made this as compact as i could, but i'll see to that larger version maybe the coming weekend. weekdays i won't be skinning stuff.

on another note, i really don't understand the customize.org ranking system. i get crappy rankings for anything i post, it seems like. oh well

@ArnoldRoelz: i don't know what you mean by the weekdays being strange or whatever

it's like in the preview you provide the week days begin on sunday but i guess that's how your date in windows is configured so he must have thought it was always like that for this skin.

edit the .ini file you are using and change any instances of "Calibri" to the font you want to use

Thanks, but i wanted to change the font of the months and to do so means you need to change the .pngs... so i won't screw around with it.

Thanks though!
