See here for the explanation and the solution - and try to learn the "lesson" for the future. ;-) All your [Bg...] are "guilty" of this.

Basically, it's about the area on which the tooltip appears on hover. That is defined by the area of the meter, and not if its "elements".

If that's the case, then what's the point in having those parameters in the first place? I thought that's what they were for? Strange!

Also, how is it that the previous version of the skin whose x,y parameters weren't zero didn't have this issue? Is it just a matter of too many shape meters without the x,y parameters?

So, I take it the idea is to use x,y to place the shape, then use the shapes x,y,h,w to place relative to former position? Is that how it works?

I just don't understand how it doesn't work how it should. If you create a section name all parameters under that belong to that section not a previous one, or the one after it.

So the point is, stop using the shapes parameter as its position and use the proper section x,y parameters instead? Ok, got it ;)

Thanks, hopefully that'll solve the tool tip issue. :D

Yeah it can sometimes be a pain to do when multiple hide/show commands are used!

Is that your issue too?

Maybe he read my comments about hiding meters?

@ dvo: I would suggest starting a new thread with your issue and posting the relevant code so people can see what your issue is.

@ death.crafter: I think he's referring to SolidColor=
