nope, i found most of my codex tricks, like xiandi's 'framecount=1' picking through mikebryants and treetog's windowblinds.
you will be amazed at their codex stuff...
That's where I found the one about adding "SimpleMode=0" to the show desktop button to the code, too, but it would sure make things easier and less of a mystery if there was a thread where we could all LIST those tricks, so the new WB skinners wouldn't think SkinStudio was broken, or that they were designing something wrong with no clue on how to actually design it.
This thread proves my point that such a list is in demand -- all Mario wanted was to put a simple glow around a round button; his design was correct, but the tasks required to make the design work were so unintuitive, he went back to Linux. One of my other passions, aside from skinning, is cooking. If following a recipe were as convoluted as SKS7, I wouldn't be able to boil an egg (and I'd probably starve to death). Look, I got all the ingredients, I followed the steps and the egg is still cold as ice and totally runny in the middle. What did I do wrong? "Oh, you have to go ask the master chefs so they give you the number to set the burner on the stove at, otherwise the egg will just sit there in the pan."
I'm going to start a thread now with the things I know and hopefully others will add to it.
