I started porting my favourite XP theme to 7 on 12.06.2012 (and finally today working on it more seriously
). I'm porting a Vista port of the Ambient theme to be exact. In direct port there were some bugs that were pretty annoying but I'm gonna fix them later, for now there is bigger one.
I like the original XP Places pane/Start menu more than Vista-styled so I decided to port it instead of leaving Vista one. While replacing bitmaps, changing content/scaling margins and testing theme after every single replace/change this appeared -> attachment
(places pane is too tall).
I tried changing scaling/default size values but I couldn't figure out what is wrong. So I'm writing here with hope that somebody will help me.
I want this thread to be general "help me" thread for my porting work so I'm not gonna start new one for each bug - I will be writing everything in this one
Thank you in advance for any help!
btw. Here is what a direct Vista port looks like: link.
