There is no way to do this that is just a click or two. You are going to have to edit the skin.

You can scroll down in the meters and find [MeterTomorrowIcon], then copy from there down to the bottom and paste a copy at the bottom of the skin. Then go through all those copied meters, and change the section names from like [MeterTomorrowIcon] to [MeterDay3Icon], doing that for all meters. Then change the MeasureName values from like MeasureName=@ForecastDay2DayIcon to MeasureName=@ForecastDay3DayIcon, doing that for all meters.

Repeat this again for Day 4 and Day 5, following the same approach.

Once you are done, you will need to increase the height of the background shape:

Code: Select all

[MeterAllBackground]
Meter=Shape
Shape=Rectangle 0.5,0.5,169,322,12 | Fill Color #BackgroundColor# | StrokeWidth 1.5 | Stroke Color #FrameColor#
X=0
W=170
H=323
Changing the height of 322 in the Shape, and the height of the meter in H.

Then refresh...

While this is not a trivial amount of work, it's a BUNCH easier due to the @Include file approach that eliminates having to do all this for all the "measures" as well as the "meters". It's a lot of copy/paste/change to get the new meters you need, but really pretty straightforward.
