Updating skins

Post by Pip » Fri Nov 03, 2006 7:26 pm

I know it's probably here somewhere, but I can't find it...........

What skin factory version must be used to update older skins so that they inlcude the latest buttons, etc? The skin factory version identification leaves something to be desired in that respect.........and the latest version still will not open older skins. Is that true of all older skins or just those made with earlier skin facory versions?????

I think a transition is needed between the compact view skins and the older ones, so at least a 2 step update is needed. We need to find and post the Skin Maker that first introduced the Compact view.

I've up dated my fav skin every time the format has changed and have had no problms.
