    Now you need to download a copy of CutePDF Writer (freeware) to convert the powerpoint into a pdf.

    BTW: Great job. I'll try using it to see if I can skin.

        Oh. Didn't see the animation slides.

        It won't show animation. I dislike animation anyway. I just figured that maybe not everyone has ms powerpoint. Don't know if openoffice could handle it.

          Will it show slide transitions and such? No.
          But here's a PDF.

          Screw CutePDF. I've got a full version of Acrobat, courtesy of work.

          Here it is in PDF format:
          How To Skin RR (requires Acrobat Reader 7.0)
          Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
          How about the Wiki?



          Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

            @Widower - There is only I think 2 animations, one of which helps the understanding a tiny tiny bit. No biggie.

            @DP - Thanks, I have a full copy of Acrobat too curtesy of my brother's work. Thanks for the PDF - I included it above!

                        Glad to help. I did it because I think skinning or skin editing is something that really anyone can do but People are intimidated by uneccessarily. Plus, I hope it takes a bit of the pressure off Guino to have to help people with small basic changes they can make to their own Skins.

                        I chose the presentation method because I think it creates a focused environment where people pay more attetion and retain more detail. One thing at a time.

                            BTW, any feedback would be appreciated too. Especially from those who are not really familiar with skinning in the first place. I want to know if this helps and/or if I left something unclear.

                              it's still unclear how the numeric points are determined for positioning, but I haven't had my system in yet to play with it, so I don't know if that's self explanitory or not when in the editor....
