Would be curious about it. I know what a WYSIWYG editor is, but can't imagine how will it work with Rainmeter.

You can use the mouse to Drag-Drop to add Meters and Measures

Sounds great. I would be happy with something that just gives a visual of your code as you update it.

I would be interested to see how this works. Several years ago there was a system monitor program called Samurize that had a WYSIWYG editor. It was very nice to use as someone who isn't code friendly, however the editor would occasionally spaz out and fail :17flag. Hopefully this has a much more stable existence

Why is the theme creating window has the pixel number? If I am making my themes and skins adoptable to the screen size what is your offer here? It already starts to confuse users implying that themes can be created only for the fixed screen size. I don't want to see deviantart or forum full of same themes for different screen sizes.

We can do more and better than Samurize.
