I need an example skin that demonstrates the behavior. I have never seen any such.

This is a very disappointing exchange. I'm sorry, but this is just not how you raise an issue or ask for help on these forums. Not if you want help from me at least. I have no idea what you are talking about, and I can't do a thing to address this if I don't have a clear description of the problem, an example skin or at least some example code that demonstrates it, and anything else that might allow me to actually test the problem to see if I can replicate it on my system.

But ok, just don't use shapes.

Well, it's not a sample skin, but maybe, just maybe, it's somehow related to this...

Bottom line, I think he wanted to say that skins flicker when the CPU is busy. How this relates to shapes, I don't know though.

If that is the case, and who knows really, then my advice would be to be sure to update graphics drivers to the very latest version, and try changing the state of "Use hardware acceleration" in Settings.

My only point in all of this is that if you "don't help us to help you" as much as you can, you can't expect much in the way of results. If I was going to report an issue like this I would likely:

1) Clearly describe the behavior I'm getting. Screenshots or .gif files are always a help.
2) Provide example code or ever better an attached .rmskin that demonstrates the problem.
3) Details about my system, what version of Rainmeter, what version of Windows, what graphics card, etc.
