How would I go about changing this to be open by default and closed on click?

That's odd. Did you refresh all? Rainmeter needs to refresh when new skins are added manually. Didn't get around doing install stuff for my skins yet. But try to refresh all from the rainmeter menu and see if the skin pops up in the list. Shout if that doesn't work and I'll try to help.

So, I'm not sure how to install this skin. I've only ever downloaded .rmskin files for download, but I realized this one is a .rar

If anyone could help, that'd be great, because this definitely looks like one of the best "notes" skins I've come across.

Hey! Before there was rmskin files what you had to do is this. And it's simple. Take the folder in the rar file and put it into your "C:\Users\Your Name\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins" folder or if you have a portable installation "C:\Rainmeter\Skins" or where ever you have installed. Hope that helps! And thanks for commenting! Appreciate it.

truly the best is it possible to have a bigger display for the news and with multiple websites???? if yes could you tell us how to do it?

coroners Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2011
It could be done by editing the code but I am afraid I don't have the time to do that. There is a lot of tutorials and sites explaining how to make rainmeter skins. It's pretty basic and if you edit a skin like this one it would probably just be changing the width and height attribute and adding another image background. Sorry if I can't be more helpful.

Did you edit the variables for what files that should be used. I am thinking the files are not being found and that's why you cant edit them.

RSS could have tabs as well, or it's too hard to make those? Sorry, i'm still learning how to edit .ini :nirvana:

open the forman_notes.ini and change the following line to your own file paths:

Note=C:\Apps\Rainm\Skins\Forman\Notes\notes.txt
ToDo=C:\Apps\Rainm\Skins\Forman\Notes\todo.txt
Other=C:\Apps\Rainm\Skins\Forman\Notes\other.txt

what do you mean "your own path". I'm super new to Rainmeter, so I have no idea.

:iconfelixandfelina:
felixandfelina Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2010
Oh it works now! Yeah, the file path in the .ini file was nonexistant, so it's all worked out and I loooove it. Thanks for your support and the great skin :love:

Hi x-spirit! First of all, congrats, dude... The best note skin I've ever seen.

As I'm a completely dumb anout editing those things, let me ask you:
Is there a way to put the tabs opening from the left side, instead of right?

Thanks in advance!
Cheers,
RW

:iconcoroners:
coroners Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2010
That would be a bit tricky you would have to change the positioning of every tab image in the code and also mirror the images. Glad you like the skin anyways and please edit it if you like.

How to make it open as a default? When I restart my pc it automatically closes.
Reply

coroners Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2010
If you open the forman_notes.ini file and go down to the [Note] line you will find a variable called Hidden=1 change that to Hidden=0 to make it visible from start.

:icontwistedalpha:

I did that but now I can see the text even though the Note is closed
Reply
:iconcoroners:
coroners Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2010
I see then something must be added to the close button click action to make it hide properly.
