Avant 11.6 build 8 Skin Selection not retained

Post by KY Dave » Sun Mar 23, 2008 1:09 pm

In Avant 11.6 build 8 the skin selected won't retain the selection when Avant is closed and reopened.

I tried several default skins and then tried to switch back to Aluminum and Avant won't retain the selected skin. I also tried selecting a skin, then clicking TOOLS, AVANT OPTIONS and clicking APPLY before closing AVANT. It didn't make any difference, still won't retain the skin choice.

8 is a beta with some structural changes--like the movable system buttons. I suspect a new skin maker will be needed. I've maintained my skin only because I figured I'd lose it if I shut down. Patience--Jasmine is already aaware of the issue.

It's a beta and, as usual, skins are disabled in the beta - i.e. only the default skin works. This time, though, on a change from previous betas, Avant seems to retain the skin from the previous version, even if it's a custom one and even if it doesn't appear in the list; if you try to change it, what you describe happens. So, if you have a custom skin you wish to keep, revert to a backup of the previous Avant version, choose that skin and only then install 11.6 buikd 8 beta, without even touching the Skins menu afterwards.

I don't have a custom or downloaded skin, just the ones shown in the default skin selections that come with the browser.

The Skins menu under Tools has reappeared in Build 9 beta.
