Excellent work... Highly customisable, and everything fits perfectly with the whole Windows 11 look.

To complement the skin, I decided to try and create a personalised skin for the now abandoned CDArtDisplay app, but in the style of your Quanto suite so it all seems cohesive... I've been a CAD user for many years, and although your skin does indeed include a media widget, Rainmeter doesn't provide any notifications whenever a track changes, so I keep using CDArtDisplay just for that...

Here's a screenshot of how it looks: https://postimg.cc/zH8M2Lx0

First, thanks for your praise! ๐Ÿ˜„
I am glad to see that your own customisation can be suitable to Quanto. The suite will be going better. Now I am making 1.31 version and your scheme will be referred for the consummation.

Amazing work! I love all the little details you've put into this, and it's extremely user friendly!

I'm not sure why, but I'm getting a frozen screen whenever I switch to a 200% scale using version 1.31. So, I'll be using 1.30.1 for the time being.

Wonderful skin, thanks for the work done. I have a request for you, is it possible to do this so that the disk widget would show the load on the disk? About like here.[/img]Image[/URL][/img]

Weather Widget Issue

Currently, neither the code nor the message in the "Format error" information can be displayed due to a bug.

The API key used by Quanto is the free plan, which has a significant request limitation for public use, which causes the weather widget to be unavailable temporarily. Although it will resume the next day, it may be blocked again due to too many visits. At this point you need to get your own API key.

Maybe there are some performance issues. My computer is using 13th Gen Intel Core i9, so I may not feel performance pressure. You can unload some unnecessary skins.

And actually, "Scaling" is an experimental setting, which may cause the suite work abnormally. Anyway, thanks for your support.
