    new skins

    I just tested the new skin 'space' which is really nice but unfortunately far too pretty to use at work - no-one would ever believe I was actually using a serious site if I kept it! I don't suppose there's anyway to specify one skin at work and a different one at home, is there? Nah - I imagine the logistics would be horrendous! Forget I asked!

    However, when I went back to my old Toffee 10pt I got a blank white screen with Times New Roman 12 pitch text - and refreshing, changing to another and back again, etc made no difference - every time I select Toffee 10 I get the same thing!

    Has something slipped somewhere, please? Toffee 12 works fine, by the way, but it's too big for me ...

    Are you sure? The dropdown list in the "Edit Display Preferences" screen (from the Control Panel) does not show a small version of Toffee (see screenshot),and the statistics for Skins (from the Search screen) don't list Toffee (S) (there is one toffee10, that is you, I presume.) Not all of the "old" skins come in three sizes, Claude is still working on how to work this into the Quick Skin Switch screen.

    Re: new skins

    Beryl, sorry about the confusion. What happened is this: all of the new skins were designed in small, medium and large point sizes. Not all of the existing skins had that option. I will be providing the same options for the "old" skins in the very near future for the sake of consistency. With the addition of all of the new skins, the Quick Skin Switch page had to be redesigned as there were too many thumbnail images of the skins and it was murder for those with a modem. Selecting your skin from the Display Preferences page as Hans suggested will work for the time being, as the list there is populated by the Lounge database and non-existent options cannot be selected.

    Hope that helps,
    -Mark

    Hmm - well, I'm sure the Toffee 10 link on the Quick Skin Switch page doesn't work, but I presume that means that I had Toffee 12, the medium size, before - it must just be that after running with Space 10 for a few hours I had got used to the smaller font and the Toffee one seemed big!

    Ah, well, no big deal - I'll just stick with the Toffee 12 for the moment!

    Ta muchly!

    Re: new skins

    Thanks Beryl. I've changed the way the Quick Skin Switch system works, Mark and I are still in the process of fixing some things. Having said that, thanks for letting us know. And please keep pointing out any bugs (or should I called that issues?) any of you find anywhere in the lounge so we can fix it.
    Cheers, Claude.
