i would definitely agree with changing it

it took me by surprise when i first clicked on the apple - it's too chunky and doesn't really take its cues from the rest of the skin [which is fabulous]

one thing i have noticed is that some popups [warnings and the like] are horizontally oversized - compared to other skins anyway

only noticed it on a couple tho

of course i won't be able to properly judge it till i get my hands on the graphite version :)

One of my only gripes with it, there aren't those 1 pixel wide semi-transparent borders around windows like there were on your Tiger V Beta.

Another is the font size of the window title bars. I think it's a bit too big, many window titles get cut off on the bottom because it's so big.

Also, windows like the control panel windows look very plain. Like there's no b/g for them and it's just plain.

Other than that it looks pretty sweet! The start menu looks very nice, and the brushed does seem pretty out of place.

@AppleThink The scrollbars look fine to me. If you're talking about the pattern of the blue, it's supposed to be like that.

i agree that the titlebar font is a bit too big

some strange behaviour i have noticed tonite is firefox loading without the skin [ie just the default windows style]

restarting firefox doesn't correct it and reapplying the skin sporadically corrects it

however, if i apply a different skin firefox picks up the skin immediately and allows me to reapply osx leopard

i don't have any exceptions for firefox in windowblinds

i can't speak for any other apps as i haven't used that many since trying your skin

Yeah, I'm changing it... thought it was a cool idea at the time, but I noticed it was kinda weird when I submitted it

K will do...

Also, windows like the control panel windows look very plain. Like there's no b/g for them and it's just plain.

I'll look into that...

I really like the skin, there is only one problem I have, I use WinRoll to roll the window up and leave just the bar left. For some reason this doesnt seem to work and i get the regular right click menu when I right click the title bar, is there any way I can change that?

Thanks

wow, this skin is absolutely kick ass! actually...this is the best mac skin for WB i have had so far. one problem, the tabs can cause problems sometimes. another thing, is when a window is emphasized on the task bar it becomes a ugly solid color. (see screenshots). the tabs screw up in most tabbed apps, and the scroll bars do not work in my window blinds. i am currently running the evaluation (trial) version...if i buy window blinds, will it fix these problems? i don't know if the scrollbar not showing up in regular windows is a bug or not...but it doesn't show up in any other windowblinds themes. anyway, keep up the awesome work! i hope someone can help me fix my problem.

EDIT: ok, i bought windowblinds 5. everything seems to be in order now...the only problem is that sometimes in firefox the scrollbar breaks (see 4th screenshot).
