  • Standard skin - selected items doesnt look good?

    You have nice shadows in the boxes in CF, and it looks great. But when you select something the song changes color to show that it is selected, but this "colored bar" is to wide, it lays "on top" of the nice shadow and makes the selection look a bit "clumsy". I think you should make it a bit smaller to change the color withing the shaded box.
    I would think making the select-box 3-5 pixels smaller in both sides would do the trick?

    I tried visualizing it with this crude drawing, hope it makes sense?

    Maket he width of the list view about 4 pixels smaller, then add 2 pixels to the X, this should do it...

      Yep, was just a suggestion to the skin-designer for the default skins :-)

      If I am the only one I will just do this when the skin and CF is final.

        I will take a look... I actually have never even loaded the Blue skin

        It was added last minute for a something else, so I included it in RC1.. That is why the highlight down state is not perfect, etc... It was not a PSD output like the other two skins, but just a modification of the PNG images themselves for marketing purposes...

        Do you see this problem on the day/night? I actually recall seeing it on the day, but I spend all my time on the Night skin, so I don't notice these things...

        I will move it and align it better...

          I have also been running in night mode all the time, and probably always will, but 1 minute after testing the change-skin button and going to the day skin I noticed this.

          Actually both day skins have the visual "defect" if I may call it that in the night skins itīs the same just not possible to see it

            I noticed that as well and it was annoying me a little bit.

                  Highlight in the Blue skin is same colour as the blue used in the skin so highlighted objects aren't easy to spot... Could do with looking at
