Lol. Paul (Vectornut) has been a Winstep user since he was a baby. ... or is it since *I* was a baby?! Can't remember which anymore. :wink:

A dedicated menu editor/resizing facility would be great - dare I suggest animations there? - probably best not to..... don't know how much work is in a dedicated menu section of the builder, but I imagine if you decide to go there, it won't be in minutes.

Jorge, I may be new here but am no means new to themeing.

I have been using the free version of desktop nexus for some time and keep toying with the idea of purchasing Winstep Xtreme, I have used the 30 day trial a number of times and the only thing that stops me from throwing my cash down is that 1.) although most Winstep themes are really nice there is not a large quantity of them, one is limited on what you can download from DA and Wincustomize and 2.) The amount of time it takes to create a theme because of the lack of themeing software for Winstep.

I know that coding is a long, tedious, boring process but I really do not think you understand the implications of having a themeing program to create Winstep themes with, your sales would probably increase exponentially and the availability and creativeness of Winstep themes would probably explode.

Just so you know, but then again, that's just my opinion.

I am sure I am not the only one that would like to see a functioning themeing application for Winstep. IMO, it's probably the only thing needed to push Winstep over the edge.

Given the current state/decline of the skinning community, I seriously doubt that, but I hear you never-the-less. :)

Well maybe it is and maybe it's not, I agree most of the old themers have come and moved on but from I am seeing there is a younger crew making their way in, and believe it or not, Windows 10 is not as hard to skin as some people would like you to believe.

If not for nothing else, finish it for your members that you have been promising it to for the past couple of years.

BTW, I went and purchased Xtreme, only because I can skin with it, not in my preferred way, but it can be done.

Oh, I remember a certain Nexus dock which also remained vaporware for several years. In the end, I always deliver, but by then you might be wearing diapers again. :wink:

Ahahaha. Yeah, you're one of the few who should know. You've been with Winstep almost since the beginning... That's nearly two decades now. :)

Well after 3 years I am nicely tucked in again. I am still looking for the "theme builder" as I am anxiously waiting to skin again.
