Location of leftband in context menu and some other issue WSB?

I want to ask about some location to edit in WSB. Thanks for reading.


(3) Changed color works when preview text files and videos files but not when blank (nothing selected) or images file. Doesn't work when select a folder either.

OK, I find out (3). It was located at Explorer & Shell > Explorer > ReadingPane > Background (3 gradient colors).

Accidentally change something else and got rid of the white leftband of context menu (2).

(1) & (4) remain unsolved.


Another issue is menu bar color. When I open a new notepad window, menu bar looks glitched, maximized it and restore it down solve problem but I guess I wrong doing something. And there's a solid fix for the problem. Scrshot show below:
Open it and resize windows randomly (by mouse pointer dragging)

Maximized and restore down:


Menu bar glitch also appears in another applications, too. I did so much replace and change in image resource of msstyle and get lost. I can't remember what I did wrong at the 1st place.

*Edit: Found out (4).
Explorer & Shell > Shell > Taskdialog > SecondaryPanel

Still (1) and menu bar glitch remains unsolved

For #1 look at the bottom of the images at
Windows and Caption Buttons > Aero > Dwm Window > Frames > Normal > Top > Active

Windows and Caption Buttons > Aero > Dwm Window > Frames > Normal > Top > Inactive

For menu bar make sure the image is the same at both
Explorer & Shell > Explorer > Menu Bar > Background

Toolbars, Headers and Rebar > Rebar > Rebar

You did very good finding the others.

Thanks so much, when I comeback home I'll try out those images location (especially the stretch out frame image, usually it only come visible when full stretched, I clearly missed that). I'm unable to +rep to your answer 'coz system return msg "You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Bongo again." Although, I just gave reputation to your account 2 or 3 times before... but now I can't.

Can't figure this one out. I try flat out color anything inbetween but still get that separator line.
The image at Windows and Caption Buttons > Aero > Dwm Window > Frames > Normal > Top looks like this and after all kinf of attempts (fine turning sizingmargin make the separator line thinner but unable to dismiss it completely) I end-up with changing to flat color like this , still not works. And I also try to replace it as 2 separated image active and inactive (one by one), doesn't work either. The separator line still there at the end.

It's getting worse with the second issue. The menu-bar glitchs. I triple checked both location
Quote:
Explorer & Shell > Explorer > Menu Bar > Background
Toolbars, Headers and Rebar > Rebar > Rebar
And they're the same 1px x 1px with color of choice (sizingmargin 0,0,0,0 - sizingtype stretch). This image was used on different locations of this msstyle and nothing got wrong with it.

May I compressed the visualstyle and sent it to you?... You might give it a look if you have time.

I looked at the .msstyles you PM me about and to get rid of that line I edited the images at
Windows and Caption Buttons > Aero > Dwm Window > Frames > Normal > Top > Active
&
Windows and Caption Buttons > Aero > Dwm Window > Frames > Normal > Top > Inactive
It is that dark color in the center of them images.

I could not replicate the problem you're having with the notepad menu, but the background image for that is at
Lists, Menus & Tabs > Menu > BarBackground

Are you using this theme and trying to edit it at the same time? If you are you cannot do it that way you need to switch to a different theme and then log off and then log back on and then you can edit this theme.

Thanks. I haven't seen notepad bar glitch after I replace the 1x1px with 1x2px same color as I see it has imagecount = 2 (Lists, Menus & Tabs > Menu > BarBackground). Not sure why previous times I see it may be the reason is what you said.
After check out this all over again, the locations I missing before is this ones:
Windows and Caption Buttons > Aero > Dwm Window > Frames > Shadowless Frames > Normal > Top
To ensure, I also replace in
Windows and Caption Buttons > Aero > Dwm Window > Frames > Fading > Top

Last time I only replace image in
Windows and Caption Buttons > Aero > Dwm Window > Frames > Normal > Top
And it didn't work. Another little problem about this one is this modification make the look of windows frame underneat band change. I mean 1st it looks like this (dark gray cyan)

After modify those image it looks like this (light color):


Is there anyway to still keep darkcyan color for normal windows but remove thin separator line for properties windows? Some kind of tricky sizingmargin could do?
My previous edited image looks the same as yours. But I haven't replace images in all necessary locations.

Might be 2 last things about this visual style to ask. How to remove these stuffs.
