[Solved] Problem with dragging Skins

Foster » May 11th, 2010, 9:32 pm

I can't seem to drag a new skin I downloaded because the only places to click on it to drag it are all buttons which have a function, like locking or shutting off my computer and therefore whenever I click on it to drag it it does the action instead of letting me move it.

Any ideas on a way to get around this?

The skin is the shutdown skin from the Lymemeter set

Edit the skin using the context menu of Rainmeter (find the config on the active list, then hover it and select "Edit Skin"). Use search and replace and change all LeftMouseDownAction to LeftMouseUpAction.

That will fix it so you can drag by clicking and holding the left mouse button and dragging, while clicking and releasing without dragging will fire the action.
