I found one little font issue. When I am in my library node, albums are listed alphabetically. There is a button available that allows you to collapse each letter of the alphabet. So if I don't want to see all of the albums that start with 'A' then I can collapse it and then see the 'B''s. These buttons are located between the last album in one letter and the before the first album in the next letter.
Well, I noticed today that the font is so dark on this button that I can't even read it. Here is a screenshot. I marked it with an arrow.

@gpzbc :This are one of the thing's we can't change, I hope in future MM versions this can be edit.
If you like dark skins you must life with this, or you can change the background image from AAview (sdb_background_aaview.bmp in the skin.msz)

Pictures 1 & 2 are examples from your gray skin showing the font size is to large to display all of the data within certain areas/windows. Pictures 3 & 4 are examples from another skin I like that has the font size that fit the windows. :D

@ steviegt:

Well, can't see realy a different from both skins ,can you post an image where you highlight the text areas you mean ,and what skin is it? MM Ultimate right?
I think the font high is the same(8pix),just looks different because of different colores in skins.

Oh, Okay. I can definitely live with it. I love my dark skins.
I just thought I would let you know in case you had overlooked it.
Thanks!

I have again re-installed Vista for various reasons. Nice clean stable install. The cut off font issue still exists. It's only on almost all skins. Nothing else on my hard drive has this issue.

Dreadm, I love the Noir blue skin but I think you should remove the text Noir from the title bar, IMHO it takes from the skin's overall modernity and neatness.... but it's a negligible issue really as the skin is in my top 5

:P

I am DEEPLY in love with this skin. I do have one request, though, and I hope that it's not seen as being nit-picky about something you clearly put a lot of effort into (with far better results than I would have achieved!):

The progress bar area is just a bit too small to make the controls useful. I have great vision and a large monitor, but after using the default setup your skin requires a bit more exacting touch. I'm always in and out of the progress bar because I want to hear one particular note again, etc. I can use hotkeys for play/pause etc, but must use the GUI to pinpoint, say, a certain passage at the 2:51 mark. A bit more real estate in that area would be bitchin'

Again, this skin is fantastic and I hope that this is taken as a request and not a whine!

Regards,

Me

Glad you like the skin,
there is a script by Peke that skips your tracks 10 or 20 seconds back or forward
( http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... 31#p215333 ) maybe this helps you.

I think to make the Seek bar button bigger don't looks nice ,maybe to make it longer like in glided skin.
I hope i understand you right that you are talking about the button and not the whole seek bar area?

NOIR eee - The best ever theme !!! A new theme should look similar to this one, elegant and slim at bottom and very good combination colours for eye (black shade with non strident grey)
Thank you! You're the best
My sister Ann would like to thank to you too ;) :wink:
