When the "narrow scrollbars" setting is enabled in preferences, the size of the scrollbar in the "Panels Configuration" is way different compared to the rest.
I already spend hours on end on social media. Might as well spare a few of those to a greater purpose here.

When there is a 'normal' audio track listed in the Playing Tracks panel, but it is unavailable because it was e.g. deleted from the drive, there will be an exclamation mark beside it explaining the problem.

But when the same happens for a podcast episode, there is no exclamation mark but the text is displayed in a different (disabled) colour.
I think it would be better if the behaviour with podcasts was the same as for normal tracks.

The LastFmButton can be hidden these days, but there is no "replacementElement id" in the skin.xml for it.
I added it myself, but that doesn't seem to work.

So I am guessing the skincreator needs to be updated to recognise it?

In the virtual tag template editor, whenever I click on the composer tag under the field selector:
MusicBee displays the header menu of whatever tab I had accessed the editor from.



Edit: Actually, it doesn't always happen. You have to be playing a song for this to occur - that's important to reproducing this.

I found the following unskinnable graphical elements (plus one visual error), for which I'd like to have the ability to use custom images for each:

the spacing is intentional to give the two nodes their own space but it doesnt make as much sense for that as when done originally and i will change it to even spacing with the other nodes

@T010

Regarding the 'playlist' image, you can override that using UnknownAlbumIcon.

For 'star ratings', you want to change the image of those stars...to what, if you don't mind my asking?

Thank you, UnknownAlbumIcon works fine.

The ability to change the star graphics is the least urgent/important for me, but would be nice regardless. I was thinking of having outlined stars for the Lowlight state

Small "Banned" icon in tracks list can not seem to be skinned by custom image: (the larger one in Player Controls panel can be skinned)

If you have a long vertical list of options in a tool menu, you get these white-coloured scroll buttons pointed out in red below.
Not a biggie, but it would be great if we can get them skinned too.

The small black arrow can follow his green buddies marked in yellow.
The white piece can follow the green shade marked in purple.

This one is specific to skins that have the scroll button hidden.
In the preview section of the template editor, when a field column has been moved all the way to the far-right, a solid square pops out.
Not a biggie either, but it would also be nice if that square could follow the background colour of the scrollbar.

I have looked but cant find any way to override the colours for that bar
