There is something that makes me curious about the borders in that first screenshot. There is the datacollection editor to edit the windUI settings, but in the screenshot, only the mediaplayer has the transparent borders.

If you can globally edit the WindUI settings with that datacollection editor, how come the other windows do not have the same border effects?

re: borders

I believe transparency is configured for active windows.

not really, but currently

not really, but currently the new theme is applied to applications started after changing the theme only. This way you don't render your system unusable if you completely messed up your theme.


this is the first of mine to use this system and I think it will be used as wall as possible!
