hmm choose two: Stable/Customizable/User Friendly

Edit: I jest. In hindsight, I didn't mean disrespect. I meant it as a joke on Grim wanting customizable interface for each button and then wanting it to be user friendly for his scroll wheel and then it was unstable for him..... I give you mad props for creating these programs.

I tried to recreate the problem but I cant make it happen again for some reason, but it was as I changed the transparency that it first happened, if happens again I will let you know.

While I can't guarantee perfect stability at the moment, I can make it more customizable if I remade the GUI (to be honest, the GUI on here was my very first attempt at one) and maybe make it look better with some pictures or something..hehe. As for user friendly, I have an idea for an unused shortcut that will do. I might start up on that in a few days.

Thanks, always good to have some encouragement.

That would be very helpful. I'll see if I can replicate it myself. Sorry for my program causing the problem, though.

I had mentioned earlier about using a paid app for XP which does what prisoner's app does in Win 7. The app in XP would crash PSP at certain times. I used to disable the app before opening PSP.

Ahha, so it's not just my app then... So it's probably just Desktop Windows Manager in 7 and whatever renders windows in XP, acting up...thanks for the info!
