This isn't the most important thing in the world but is it possible to remove the dim effect on certain things such as the Photo of the Day, Picture Gallery, RSS feeder, Calendar etc.?

Thank you all for any future replies!

the simplest way to delete the dim folder.
Cryskaofficial's avatar
Also, is it possible to fix the issue with numbers on certain things such as the calendar and RSS feeder? It overlaps with a line or something.

there are lots of alternative: fast and simple to reduce the font size.

This is quite possibly the most beautiful suite I have ever used for Rainmeter. I love having this on my desktop!

I wanted to add, in case anyone is having problems with the weather tool, go into the config file under the weather skin (\Rainmeter\Skins\amana\weather) and where you see:
[Variables]
@include=#SKINSPATH#amana\@settings\Variables.inc
@Include=#CURRENTPATH#settings.txt

Change to:
[Variables]
@include=#SKINSPATH#amana\@settings\Variables.inc
@Include2=#CURRENTPATH#settings.txt

If you have two include statements, they have to have separate identifiers, else it'll ignore one. In my case, it wasn't reading the settings.txt, so it was always stuck at "balmy" even though it is quite chilly. ;-)

Anyway, just wanted to point that out just to help other users who were having trouble. This is one of the most polished, well-written suites I have had the pleasure of ever using! It's really functional and aesthetically pleasing! Thank you reb70! :)

Thank you for your kind word and many thanks for help. There are still too many bugs and I'm a very lazy (or actually busy) to fix my old stuff. I promise I will collect myself and I will fix it soon. ; )

Oh not to worry - we're a community here and we'll help each other out whenever possible. And this is a fun project, so I know you'll get to it when you can. Besides, you already put a lot of hard work into it. I just wanted to appreciate what you've put together here, it's beautiful. :)

Ah, and the dock isn't working.

If you go to the config file for the dock (located in \Rainmeter\Skins\amana\dock) and open the file, you should see in separate lines:
LeftMouseDownAction=!Execute ["Browser"]
LeftMouseDownAction=!Execute ["Messenger"]

You need to add the # symbol before and after "Browser" and "Messenger" - so it should look like:
LeftMouseDownAction=!Execute ["#Browser#"]
LeftMouseDownAction=!Execute ["#Messenger#"]

The dock should work after that. The # symbol in Lua scripting means it's referencing a variable from the include file, so that should take care of that.
