It worths it, trust me.
Start resizing the width of the player until you realise what is docked to the left, and what is docked to the right.
Open skin.xml in your favourite editor
Take a paper, write the elements docked to the left, with the pixels of separation, etc
Do the same for the right side.
Now switch the elements respecting the original separations as you like.
To avoid fails, better do it step by step.
Do one change, save the xml. With the skincreator.exe opened click reload
If it doesn't fails, go to the next change.
