:: Features ::
  • illustro style
  • in-the-skin editing of up to 16 notes
  • ability to move notes up/down in the list
  • strike-through the current note ~ right-click to restore (v1.2018.03.11) 
  • delete the current note
  • middle-click to copy highlighted note to the clipboard
  • double-click to edit note
  • enlarged buttons for better touch screen function
  • corrected strike-through of added note and re-positioning (v1.2018.03.12)

PATCH Info
I packaged the skin as a patch to illustro, so if you already have illustro installed, it will add a Notes folder to your current illustro installation and not make any changes to other existing illustro skins.

If illustro is not installed, it will install in a new illustro/Notes folder in your skins folder.

Can you teach me how to add Skype to the programs? I can't seem to link it properly. I already tried pasting the entire path to the exe file. :/

Is there an easy way to double the size of everything? This is on a 3rd screen 50" TV on my opposite wall and gets very hard to read. I changed a few things but it always threw off proportions.

No. This was designed in the illustro style which is ~10 years old and not easily scaled. You could try my illusta suite, I believe the notes in that package are scalable.

Nice notes widget! Is it possible to make the background transparent without making everything transparent?

Edit skin, in [Rainmeter] section, replace

Background=#@#backgroud.png

BackgroundMode=3

with

; Background=#@#background.png

BackgroundMode=2

SolidColor=0,0,0,1

Save and refresh.

Good skin!
I recommend changing 'HighlightColor' to '0,0,0'.

Yes, the original is a bit "jarring"... modified the highlight color to a dark color.
I also modified the edit buttons to use a different mouse over/leave color.

Made a few minor tweaks to clean up text positioning.

Thanks for the comment!
