Hi Neil, since I wrote this post, I have actually gotten my feet wet with Skinstudio/WB 6.0
I very motivated to fix this problem for myself. Would you be kind enough to please help me get started with fixing this by answering the below questions:
1) If I upgrade to WB 6.1 beta, will it install in the same directory as the final release? It wont have a proprietary beta install like "C:\Program Files\Stardock\Object Desktop\WindowBlinds beta 3"?
2) Will upgrading WB 6.1 beta to 6.1 final just as troublefree as going from 6.0 final --> 6.1 final?
3) Are there any Vista OS stability issues with 6.1 beta or the reason for the beta status is only for refining the new features that are added; not affecting system stability.
4) What exactly do I need to change in the skin to keep the Start Button centered for large taskbars and what setting do I need to specify in WB 6.1 to allow for this to happen?
Thanks a million! I am really starting to like SKS and WB!!!
This is not a bug. As all WB skins on XP had the start button positioned at the edge of the taskbar, WB does some work to ensure this remains the case under Vista otherwise many older skins would break.
WB 6.1 will have a skin UIS setting to allow the button to also be positioned in the centre, but this is something that will have to be specifically enabled in a skin and it will be ignored on XP where the button will remain at the edge of the taskbar. In effect this setting will disable the code in WB that forces the button to be at the edge.
