Hey ,

 

Facing skinning problem on printing page screen in Adobe reader only. In microsoft office that box is correctly skinned but not in adobe reader. 

Apart from that WindowFX effects are not working on these screens also but work fine in Microsoft office word. Thirdly, would like to request that you guys should include a msstyle importer for windows 7 and 8 skins in the skin studio because there are tons of great themes which i personally think should be ported but my interest gets lost as i cant even extract the images from the .msstyle theme.

Adobe Reader used sandbox to render its windows as said by developer here which hardly to be skinned. I would recommend that you exclude it on both Windowblinds and WindowFx.

There is a commercial tool with which allows you to create MS theme,you may import images to SkinStudio,yet,forewarned that it would be laborious.

Weird, my Adobe Reader XI on Windows 7 64-bit isn't being skinned at all by WB here, and it is not excluded either.

1) Adobe Reader XI

2) windows 8.1

3) all of them

4) the program is not skined. 

 

This is normal as Adobe reader uses a sandbox by default which prevents WB from being able to access skin files, so it leaves it as Windows 8 themed.
