Help fixing clipping part of skin

Post by teiji »

Hello,

I have this problem where at startup, this date-time skin will load, but there will be part of it that is clipped when the time extend (pic 1). BUT if I right-click and refresh the skin, it will fix itself and display correctly. (pic 2) Does anyone know what's the problem and how to fix it? (I don't want to manually refresh the skin to fix it all the time.)

Try to add a DynamicWindowSize=1 option to the [Rainmeter] section.
