Hi,

Thanks for this skin. It's become my preferred skin. After a few months of using it, I decided to customize the layout to my likes. One issue I've come across is the "Sidebar Player". When I "Show All Player Controls" , the "EQ", "Last.fm", "Repeat", "Shuffle" buttons are very difficult (almost invisible) to see. (Versus not clicking "Show All Player Controls" .)

For reference, "Sidebar Player" under Duophonic skin. With "Show All Player Controls" and without .

Is there a way to make the buttons more visible?

Thanks for the appreciation, and for reporting this issue.
I'll have a look at it, and I probably should be able to fix it.
(should be done before the end of the week)

The skin is updated.
Let me know if you find it's o.k. now, or if you maybe have other suggestions for improvements.

Updated to accommodate for a couple of new features of MB v3.1.

A minor note to prevent possible confusion: for the rating 'no stars', I dropped the bomb, and now use a 'thumbs down' icon.

Improved some more for v3.1 and added/improved a few icons.

Updated.

- The player panel has been improved a bit, and will now remain slim & slender™, also when larger fonts are selected for the main player’s track info.
- the option for displaying a wavebar in the player panel has been added.

The download link is in the start post.

(MB v3.1.6363 or higher is recommended)

hiccup,

Thanks for the help and fix on my other post, but now it seems something else has come up. The leading numbers in the track length/time seems to be getting cut off in the player.



It should actually read 18:28/1:00:23.

It's probably dependent on the custom font you chose for the main player.
Which font are you using for that?

Comic Sans MS 9pt

Now that you say that, I tried changing the font to various others and also tried changing font size with the same result. It looks like the time display area is fixed and as the track length grows it will go outside the area. Also, the track time font size doesn't change if I changed font size in my settings.

Thanks for the input.
The font size for the duration is fixed for this skin, but the font type can make a small difference.
(e.g. Comic Sans MS is wider than Segoe UI)

I gave it some more space now.
Please let me know if that fixes it for you, and if you have other suggestions/observations.

Thanks hiccup,

Looks like that took care of it.

I was just looking at the player layout and there's a "Show Track Details on Multiple Lines" option that I can't check. Is that something that can be incorporated?

Thanks again and keep up the good work.
