New **** up look or skin with Build-107!!

Post by abuser » Fri May 24, 2013 6:06 pm

Hi,

sorry for using such words but try to understand.........new skin with 107 build is really a pain in bad place!!

its eating too much space & most of the menus are overlapping!! this is another headache!!

earlier in 2 rows i could arrange icons & bookmarks!! but in build 107 its taking at least 3-4 rows!! on a 14" screen its tough to read & need to keep scrolling!!

i tried to add/import skin (crystal skin) from old version but did not work!!

I HATE NEW LOOK/SKIN!!...........

please provide an option to use old icons......having used it for years i still have/facing confusion with new skin

thanks & Regards
ABUser.

You should be able to select any of the classic skins (including Crystal) in the Skins menu (Tools > Skins). All of the classic skins are listed in the menu below the line.

In build 107 with one of the classic skins, the toolbars and standard buttons still take up a bit more space than they used to, though. To get back the classic skins exactly the way they used to look, drop back to build 23 until there's a build in which the classic skins work properly. The three versions of build 23 (Lite, Ultimate, and USB) are available for download at http://avant.it-mate.co.uk/?c=Download& ... /13_Series.

i have been using only "crystal" skin since years with every build & never had issues except this build/release!!

even now with build 107 i am using crystal skin. these new icons & the way all bars are appearing is making it difficult to use. these bars overlap on another (try arranging 2 bars in same row.....you will notice this)

i am not going to revert to build 23!! all i am asking is provide an option to use old skin with old icons!! i even tried importing skin from build-11.7 Build 46 but did not help!!

HATE THIS NEW LOOK TO THE CORE!!!!!

if Avant team is not going to address/fix this issue then probably will start using some other browser!!

another observation:

based on skin either options are available or unavailable!! for e,g: select crystal skin then right click on top most bar you will see status bar option along with other options. now select stickers on glass skin, right click on top most bar you will see all other options except status bar!!

now go back to crystal skin, right click on top most bar select customize button, you will notice 3 of these options: standard buttons, other buttons, menu bar

again change to stickers on glass skin, right click on top most bar you will notice only 2 options standard buttons, other buttons!! menu bar option is missing!!

what type of scrwedup logic is this??!!

Thank you Mike :) for links & letting all of us know about detailed testing :clap:

i second you......

few of the most irritating things what i noticed in this (even in few last builds as well) are

1. from options even if you select if closed then minimize to sys tray, instead it exits!!
2. click on history icon it used open a pane left side...having used it for years no i am finding it too tough when the opens right side
3. open a tab visit any site...wait till it loads completely then open another tab in address bar still the URL of previous tab/site appears......this is confusing & irritating
4. delete skin file from avant folder it doesn't makes any changes still you will get to see same icons (skin what you had selected!!)
5. even replacing skin file doesn't makes any difference!!

as you mentioned since nobody asked for any of these UI changes so i dont understand why these were introduced!! is it an experiment with users?

The new skins are different with the old ones. If you don't like the new skin, please stay with the old skins.
1. from options even if you select if closed then minimize to sys tray, instead it exits!!

What's your setting in AB options>New tab>default action for new button and ctrl+N shortcut?

At present, there is no way to get back the buttons that used to be in the classic skins in any build beyond build 23. The classic skins look and work exactly the same as they used to in build 23. We're waiting to hear what the developer intends to do regarding the skins and many other issues.

Hy, any news about this annoying fact?

I started to use the "2013 build 110" today, came from the good old 11.7, used there "vista small icons", a pretty nice black-one.

But what I have now is "Tristan" ("trist" means in german "sad"), and this is, to me, the best skin from all current avaiables.

Why we can not use the same styles we felt in love with? ;)
Sorry for my Spaghetti-English...
