Minimal Glass for CAD by jaymedia Minimal Glass for CAD by jaymedia


PLEASE RE-DOWNLOAD, I fixed the problem and it should be alright now :)

I know no one probably cares about my work, or maybe a few people do, but anyway, here's a surprise for you guys :)

I decided not to release Exon, and instead release something which I made spontaneously today.

This is Minimal Glass, no fancy names here, just what it is basically. Goes well with darker wallpapers than light ones, but you're welcome to try :P

Inspired by [link] by nindijin.

Enjoy!

And please please, if you view it, give it a try, I guarantee it doesn't disappoint. And if you download it, please drop a comment.

Thank you so much, appreciate it guys :)

oh yes, i very much like the simplicity of this. :nod:

...again it's the textline area and max. char setting which needs a few adjustments. :D

here's a tip how you can easily accomplish a proper and smooth text setting...

...first of, please deactivate all textscrolling for all textlines.
then load a track with some long artist- and/or titlename.
it's a nice idea to have a track with some "g", "q", "p", "j" or "y" letters in it as they would exceed the textline's regular baseline towards the bottom.
now, activate the "draw guide lines" option in CAD's SkinEditor (text).
next you'd start adjusting the text area heights by in- or decreasing it, so you'd offer just enough room and nothing would be cut off.
in case you'd use some dropshadow on your text add a few pixels for the height accordingly.
when you're done you can proceed with doing just the same with the textline width setting.
nevermind if the text would be cut off at the end, because you now have to adjust the "max. chars" amount by in- or decreasing the current value just as much until the textline would show three little dots (...) at its end.
if you got that please decrease that value by 3 more steps, because this would make sure that tracknames with less thin letters involved (i.e. "l" or "i") won't be cut off either.
finally you can turn off the "draw guide lines" option again.
depending on your own preferences you can now(re-)activate the textline scrolling and the text will always be displayed correctly.

oh, ...and don't forget to save your changes. :D

btw. it can be a nice effect on some skins if you'd select different scrolling intervalls for the various textlines so they'd be scrolling at different speeds.

besides, i always liked the smooth fade in/out effect on textlines when a track is changing.
if you like you can easily set such textline transitions in the "text style" item of the SkinEditor. ;)

there's another thing i'd like you to take a look at...
...although the setting of your "min" and "exit" toolbar buttons looks really cool on your skin, it can however cause some buggy behaviour, because both buttons are overlapping eachothers and so it can be a problem for CAD to properly detect on which button the mousepointer would currently be over and therefor might cause some issues regarding their accessibility.
so, if you'd move the "min" button a little bit further to the left (so it would actually be next to the "exit" button) everything should be fine again. :lol:

all my apologies for yet another wall of text, buddy. i hope you don't mind. :hmm:

thanks again for the share. :thumbsup:

Doesn't look like screenshot when installed - cover and text misaligned, hanging out the top of the skin.
