OK maybe I'm not understanding very well. I've tried a few solutions.
"I believe the mouseover text color only works when using a single mouseover image for both."
The first was that on default the item mouseover has two images, the normal mouseover and a seemingly useless transparent one. I deleted the transparent one and reduced image count to one and that had no effect on the problem. So I'm not sure I understood the above quote correctly.
"There are two sections (vista only) for "item mouseover" and another for 'right'. If you use them both then the mouseover text color will be the same as default color."
This part still confuses me as well. DOes that mean there are 4 sections total that you are refering to? Where are they?
I don't mind not using the item mouseover section to apply mouseover settings. I just want to make it so places list and programs list panels both have red font initially, and black font when moused over. When I apply the above settings on both of them (with actually mouse over settings on default OS) I get this: Programs working correctly, places malfunctioning, showing red font when moused over:
and not working:
So I guess short question is this: is it possible to get the right to do the same thnig as the left and how? Sorry if you've already answered and I just didn't get it but I'm still a bit new to this as you can tell! This is my first skin. Hopefully I'll be able to release it when I'm done.
