Again, some really nice changes!

I have a small issue though. These are the player controls in the previous version:



And these are the controls in this update:



I have it docked to the top of the player, which could be the reason it is like this. The last version you did fixed this from the versions before that but it seems to have reverted back being like this again.

It's not a big deal at all so don't worry if you are busy, I appreciate all your effort already.

It's a thing related with the vertical center calculted by PanelMinusProgressBar. Try changing the font or size used in "Preferences\Layout\Player control\Main player\use custom font" to recalculate it. I see it well here on top too.

Ok thanks, after a lot of adjusting I've found a font and size that works. Kind of annoying though.

Thanks a lot for making the red selection in Artwork View, I was going to suggest that the colour could be changed so you can see what you have selected more clearly. Works really well.

Glad you like it ;)

I restarted MB with player bar on top and saw it bad. It seems MB draws one pixel less when is on top you could report it to Steven

I have tried some workarounds, but it would need more work to fix this without tunning the customized font.

I have redone the highlighted buttons affected for the first line not shown when on top. As a workaround i have cut the first horizontal line in each image.

Very nice. I have to say that I prefer Dusk's DJ shuffle icon personally

lnminente, I was wondering if you would consider making a version of this one with the player bar text aligned to the centre (horizontally). I've been using the Clarity skin for a while and I think it looks much neater when the text is in the middle rather than aligned to the left.
