Documentation Idea
I got this idea to add a built-into-vsb community documentation feature; You would be able to add comments to any element or property by clicking the "ADD COMMENT" button. Those comments will then be made available to all other users directly.
Community Comments, in turn, would be directly accessible from within VSB.

Any thoughts on this? Because, before I'm going to implement it, I want to know if it will be used at all (see the requested wiki which isn't used in any way Sad).

I think that would be a great idea.

The new VSB is great! A bunch of XP things were fixed, but it still doesn't import correctly:
- Start Menu (some parts)
- Progress Bars (some parts)
- Scrollbars (should adjust to the original xp size)
- Menus
- Vista Basic Navbar Background
- Radio Buttons
- Folderband
- Comboboxes (should be borderfill, the edit-boxes still look like vista's)

Otherwise, it's all good!

i think that the xp-import-thing is less important than many other things (sorted by priority: how to use guide, built-into-vsb community documentation feature, language files) because if somebody likes a xp theme, he simply redo it clearly and especially for vista ...

What I meant by the "Uh" is that VSB asks if you want to use the theme after saving.

Not sure where else to post this..but iaven't yet received an email regarding the updated version.
Had to reformat recently, and didn't save the original email with the download link  Sad Saved the install file and serial number..so I could reinstall after reformat.
Would really like to update to the new version if I can  Smiley

What about using the original sizing margins from the WinXP themes? Along with various mechanics like caption button size, etc.

I installed this version and when i save my style it returns the original aero style back and them when it asks to use my style again it doesnt work and it apply the aero style again. Sad
So i need to delete my style and then paste it again an the Themes location cause if i try to apply it manually it does the same thing again.
