This should be the correct formatting to get the user frame aligned to the left side of the right column correct? User_frame_position=center2,104 works to align center

also can User_mask=61 refer to a .png in the IMAGE folder (documentation suggest it can, however it doesnt seem to work for me.), or does it need to be a bitmap in the Bitmap folder?

Attached is the Skin in question

Looks like invalid.
Looking at the tute, for classic style, just negative or positive numbers, and 7 style auto centers in right column.
I got tricked into thinking user name positions could be used too.
Using +,- numbers inside does not work too well from past experience,
with shrinking , expanding.
A good future request.

The user image png is not 32 bit transparent on outside.

Reading of left2,
helping out with rough name position:

OPTION USER_NAME=#7015,0

[USER_NAME]
User_name_position=65,315,-70,355
User_name_align=left2
User_font="Franklin Gothic Medium",normal,22
User_text_color=#FFFFFF

[HIGH_DPI AND USER_NAME]
User_name_position=80,315,-80,355

Thanks this solves the user bitmap mask; I had assumed because the .bmp included in the skin was just black and white, that a .png would need to follow the same rules, with black being auto-converted to transparency.

So your saying you don't think there is a way to align the user frame to the left side of the right column?
the right side of the the right column with some negative offset would do the trick.
As i mentioned User_frame_position=center2,104works; aligning to the center of the right column (though I need the left)


also Thanks for the name position, i hadn't gotten to that yet :P

Silly of me, center positions for both columns in classic too. :oops:

What I did in past was set the + ,- for left or right,
but once an entry is added to column with longer name, everything went out of alignment.
Worse for column left, not so much for column right, for users don't change entries, except maybe add another network entry.

Maybe MeetHG knows something?


I'm having a similar stretching shrinking problem of LCARS skin I'm making.
Wish there was some skin text to put in, lock 2nd column at a certain height/width.
I can get 12 or 13 color bar entries to show correctly. Anything less, menu collapse into a black hole. :lol:



The name font size would need to be bigger for Hidpi, as Ivo said it does not auto change like regular text.

This has nothing to do with Classic shell.
I updated to latest Fall Update. Now I can't turn off the damn horizontal scrolling on Edge explorer. It's freaking me out.
