Why skinning window borders is not possible with the new version? (dusk)

Because I haven't done the borders yet, so I decided to turn them off for now. I'll re-enable  them in the next update.

Thanks for your great work.  Looking forward to the updates!
They are not lazy... just more efficient.

Thanks, could you maybe make the colors between tracks a bit more harsher? So it is easier to see ?

Really love the dusk skin - but I feel like there needs to be a little more variation in the different elements!

This is really beautiful. I'm using "Dawn" now, and I agree with the earlier poster who said it would make a pretty great default skin for MusicBee.

I do think the alternating row colors in the song list are a little too subtle right now. I have a glossy LCD laptop screen, and I can't even see them unless I look at my screen from an angle. The "Search" and "Panel Layout" toolbar buttons are also invisible for me, but I gather that's outside your control? I think the other buttons (e.g. New Tab, Back/Forward) are great, though. I like that the overall color scheme is simple and gets rid of unnecessary elements.

A few other (extremely) small quibbles:

- When the left sidebar is collapsed, the playlist-select button is a white triangle. It should probably be either black, or gray like the other toolbar buttons.



- The "up" arrow button on the main scrollbar seems to be a few pixels below the top edge of the column headers. The horizontal gradient also looks a little weird when the right toolbar is open. I'd probably make it a shade or two darker, rather than solid white.



- The corners of the tabs look a little thinner than the sides. They could use a little smoothing out.



Yes, I'm being a total nitpick here, but only because there's nothing else to criticize. It's a gorgeous skin through-and-through. :)

Nice Skin!! For Dusk I like the green dots in the preferences, but I think the check marks should also be green for consistency. Is it possible to implement?

Little update (download link in first post). I've added window borders and some other fixes.

Done

Done, however it will depend on your display settings so results may vary

Sorry, but I can't fix those.

Again, thanks for reporting the issues.

anyone using this skin will need to get the latest patched version 2 beta for it to work correctly as i makes use of a new vertical centering setting

It doesn't :)
I'll update the skin for 2.0, maybe even today.

Looks perfect for me, at least. Thanks for the update!

Thanks for the update. Another consideration for dusk will be the highlighted track color? Maybe the same color green as the dots and checkmarks? Only because it can be a little difficult to see. Thanks

I noticed that the album rating is a strong blue colour when unrated, and white when rated. Can it be changed to the background colour as is in the album & track view? Thanks a lot, I really enjoy this skin. :)
