Installed the latest version of Avant but all but the default skins have disappeared from the drop down Skins menu.Is there a compatability issue?

The custom skins feature is turned off for every beta/alpha build. Usually it's because of some additional icons and/or backend changes.

I think this might be a real problem.. When alpha 3 was released custom skins were turned back on.

Did you say Dave that your default skins disappeared not just your custom skins?

Sorry,Matt,didn't explain that too well.The default list(Aluminium,AthenX,Crystal etc.) is all there in the drop down menu except for my custom skins in 11.7.My custom skins are in the Skins Folder in the Avant Browser Folder but don't appear in the drop down list.
I've reverted back to 11.6.20 for the time being as they've reappeared again now in this build.

Well in my experience going from installing Alpha 1 over 11.6 B20. Custom skins were not there, they were not there in Alpha 2 or Alpha 2a. But as soon as I installed Alpha 3 over Alpha2a customs skins showed up in the drop down list.

But just so everyone knows.. We never expected you to have a flawless experience using 11.7. An alpha version of any software is by defintion very early software and will have problems with it. But, its the people who brave through those problems and help us find all the bugs before we release a final version. So you won't have a bad experience.

Axeman, your really using IE 5.5? You really should consider upgrading to at least version 6 if not 7. Especially since your already in XP. For one thing, it helps Avant tremendously, plus the internet is evolving and if your not experiencing problems with websites already you will. Especially once IE8 comes out later this year, the internet should all look the same to everyone no matter what browser your using(Avant, Orca, Opera, etc). If anything upgrading to IE7 gives you alot better security features. In case you want to buy something online or login to your banks website.

Same here
