Text Cut-off

Post by Nick »

Hey guys,

So I searched through some old post in hopes of finding the answer but none of the solutions worked. I downloaded a skin from customize.org. It didnt quite look right so I made some changes to the alignment, positioning on screen. The problem is that after editing the skin at times (like after 10:00pm) the text is to long for the background. So after looking through some old posts I added the DynamicWindowSize=1 code but it does not fix the problem. Attached is my desktop for you to look at. Thanks for any help you can give!

EDIT: I would prefer not to make the text smaller. I tried that and it takes away from the look I want. Also it doesnt look as good with some of my background (windows 7 slide show)

Here's some of the code as well.

[MeterTime]
MeasureName=MeasureTime
Meter=STRING
X=455
Y=13
FontColor=#FontColor#
FontSize=75
FontFace=rockwell
StringAlign=RIGHT
StringStyle=Bold
AntiAlias=1

[MeterMonth]
MeasureName=MeasureMonth
Meter=STRING
X=350
;x=800
Y=117
;y=25
FontColor=#FontColor#
FontSize=32
FontFace=rockwell
StringAlign=RIGHT
StringStyle=Bold
AntiAlias=1

[MeterDate]
MeasureName=MeasureDate
Meter=STRING
X=450
;x=500
Y=110
;y=20
FontColor=#FontColor#
FontSize=56
FontFace=rockwell
StringAlign=RIGHT
StringStyle=Bold
AntiAlias=1

[MeterWeekday]
MeasureName=MeasureDay
Meter=STRING
X=345
;x=600
Y=156
;y=65
FontColor=#FontColor#
FontSize=20
FontFace=rockwell
StringAlign=RIGHT
StringStyle=Bold
AntiAlias=1

Add a W= and H= to each meter where the W= is big enough to hold the longest possible text, then set X= on the meters where StringAlign=RIGHT to the same value as W= and you should be good.
