Any idea why this happens on some blinds?
Not all, but some blinds.
never seen b-fore
Never seen that before.... but then again, I never use Exploder either.
I downloaded the blind...it was doing the same thing on my machine too. So, I opened it in Skin Studio...his margins on the blocks were really weird. So, I changed all the margins to 2,2,2,2. That cleaned it up.
Thanks Jazzy. A few other skins do it too. I'll try that.
Make sure to leave a comment on the skin.
Let me know Jim if that fixed it for you. I guess maybe one of us should comment about it on his skin.
There always has to be someone that drops by and says 'I'm using the same WB and I don't see what you are seeing, my progress bars look okay.'
Hi ya folks, ahhh, that would be me.
EDIT: I sent RnD a screenshot
I don't know if it is the skin. I have talked to a few people who don't see this with the same skin applied.
That fixed it, Jazzy. Thanks. Guess I'll tell him.
Yes, they're called Tech Support.
I think the reason Jim and I have the problem is because we both have hard drives that don't have a lot of data on them. If you notice in Jim's screenie, the 2 drives that the progress bars don't show up right are the ones with very little data on thaem.
Jim, it only affects drives with very little data on them. I always make my margins on my progress bars no more than 2 or 3 pixels wide.
Thanks for the karma
i will fix this,,fanx jazzymir for halping i dont have any time to post threds or read them usely im very buisy with work ,but if i have any prob,s in the future ill post a thred here ,,
yeah.....the margins on those bars should be no less that 1 pixel all around (that may also limit your design options and force you to use square corners....)
I tried it with varying amounts on several drives, didn't see this problem. However,I can barely see the taskbar buttons and can't see any text in the address bar in explorer at all. Anyone else have this issue?
