I've noticed since saving my style in VSB for the first time, that the mouseover item in the favorite links panel is very slow at moving around. It's very sluggish.

Other people I've asked about this have said the same.

Is there any fix for this?

Seems to affect the Start Menu's shutdown pop up window, also.

This appears to be because of the incorrect inheriting of TRANSITIONDURATION:INTLIST, I'm looking to see if this is a Windows thing or a VSB bug.

In the meantime, you can fix this by adding TRANSITIONDURATION:INTLIST with value 1 to each element having this behaviour.

I've uploaded version 1.1.0 already, which fixes this bug. You can get it at the download link mentioned in your activation e-mail.

I'll put out a mailing with changelog later tonight.

Technical Nature of the bug
VistaStyleBuilder incorrectly flagged classes which subclassed another class (e.g. StartBottom::Button) as having a parent class. This way, they actually started to inherit all properties of their parents, including mouse-hover animation (the sluggish mouseover feeling).
A correct child->parent class relation, for instance, are the Button -> ButtonStyle classes.

Having issues with the new version.

I uninstalled the original version. Then I installed the new version.

I loaded my style with VSB, made a minor change (a font change on the window header), then selected to test it. It did the usual loading and showed the control preview window as usual. But, it didn't really apply any changes. It even still loads the custom shell that I have with my style (as if it didn't really load anything or even reload the style as there wasn't the usual flicker of the screen).

I figured that maybe I had to save the style with the newer version to continue working with it. I saved the style with the newer version and it came up an error about saving it. By this time it reverted to Aero, so I clicked the save button again and it saved.

Then, when I opened the Appearance properties window to load my style. Now, whenever I click on the style from the list of themes, it crashes the "Run32.dll" (if I remember correctly).

I kept the original version of VSB and made a backup of my style before opening it with the 1.1 update version, so no worries there.

I also tried the transitiondurations:intlist property on the favorite links mouseover image (489) and after about 3 seconds of mousing over to see what happened, the dragging did stop and was snappier but it caused explorer to crash.

I've put up version 1.1.0.1 which fixes the bug you mention, the BcMap could get corrupt on some instances. Whoops! Available at the usual download link.

I've added a BcMapFixer tool in the installation to fix the Bcmap of your MsStyles file, in case you need it.

Btw: the TRANSITIONDURATIONLIST:INTLIST should be set to 1 instead, 0 generates a division-by-zero error inside uxtheme.

the gradient stylehack gives me a black border through the BGTYPE:ENUM BORDERFILL on the new version

and if i choose IMAGEFILE it doesnt show the gradient :/

EDIT* i added a bordercolor property so i could make it in my own color.
so its not a big deal. still kinda annoying. :P
