Windows 8.1 Windowblinds using Start 8.

Double checked on several PC's.

 

-When using a WindowBlinds skin that has a Start menu Animation, the Start menu Animation stops working after right click, on taskbar button (Jumplist pop up)

No matter what you try to restore the function it will not come back except with a restart, but again as soon as you press for Jumplist in Taskbar it's all broken again.

-This needs a fix promptly as it affects ALL skins with Start menu animations.

I am currently skinning on a new skin with st. menu animation and that's when I noticed this.

Really hope this will be addressed, otherwise there's no point in finishing off the skin (s)

So Start 8 is borked.

Start menue animations are useless and there's not even one reply or reflection ??

-As this is a fundamental function in skinning windowblinds start menue, you would think that someone would have something to say about this...

-Really ?

You probably should email support@stardock.com and wait wait a non-automated reply before responding again. Evidently it may take a while though.

Quoting neone6,

-As this is a fundamental function in skinning windowblinds start menue

   SM animation may not be around forever.   Once upon a time, I know the taskbar and I believe the windowframes could also be animated. It's only fundamental while it can still be done within the confines of the OS and WB versions.....just sayin, 

No matter what you try to restore the function it will not come back except with a restart

Andy, what happens if you reapply the WindowBlind, or Unload Start8 and reopen it? That would seem easier than rebooting., at least as a workaround for now.

Lol, did that, done that, went through every option before even considering whining about it
