option to remove status bar?

BTW: Could we get rid of the status bar on the main FARR window. In the preferences window it makes perfectly sense to have a status bar that shows informations about the different options, but in the main window I don't need a statusbar that tells me "Wellcome master" or informs me that I can right-click an entry. I think getting rid of the status bar would make FARR look better.

i think i can add an option for that.
ps. in the future can people post such requests on their own threads; easier to track and not lose track of.

th itunes skin also has a messed up skin for table headers when you mouse-over them, if that's correctable..

Thanks for adding it.

You're right. I'll try to keep that in mind, next time.

OK, removed another 2-3pixels height from status bar and fixed the table headers:

skinnyitunes is looking great!
headers look great!

i was thinking maybe 2 things that would perfect it:
1) can the statusbar grip be moved a few pixels to the right?
2) maybe the titlebar icon at upper left is a bit cramped? maybe move it 1 or 2 pixels right and add a line of pixels above and below it (ie expand titlebar height by 2 pixels)

its good as it is, im just thinking of perfection :)

and can i include this skin in the default installation of F&R?

i also noticed that all skins get a bit messed up when you are in options changing the top+bottom placement of editbar.  i'll fix.

OK, I moved the resizer 1px, but it won't go any further without cutting the right border which will stop the curved effect at the top.

And I shunted the Sys logo a bit, but I didn't want to add extra height to the titlebar as that kinda defeats the purpose of a skinny skin  :huh: If you really want it I can make a version with a slightly fatter title...  ;)
