Nion Redux Compact Start Menu by 5nak3 Nion Redux Compact Start Menu by 5nak3
Ok this is not a new visual style; this is simply a mod of Nion Redux to include a compact start menu.

Lassekongon 83 and Sakurakira designed Nion and Nion Redux respectively and all I have done is take a very nice minimal style and add a compact start menu.

Fonts include:

Tahoma, Calibri and Segoe UI and as seen in the preview graphite and black are the only colour options. I have tried to eliminate all bugs so hopefully none should be present if anyone finds any let me know and I’ll try and fix them

Just a little glitch: the close button in small caption windows misses a few pixels on the right. For instance, can be seen in Miranda.

The above can simply be fixed by replacing the following in all the INI-files:

[Window.SmallCloseButton]
ContentMargins = -2, -2, -4, -4

with

[Window.SmallCloseButton]
ContentMargins = -4, -4, -4, -4

Nice style! Could you please make the active tab stand out more clearly, for instance by including a horizontal blue line on top of the active tab? In most tabbed browsers, it's not clear at all which tab is activated.

Hi there, thanks for the comment.
As i said in the comments above i did not create this style but rather just modified it.
In any case given my workload at the moment i have very little time to myself so any alterations will have to wait until i get some time.

If you could post a picture showing what you mean that would be great as i currently am not quite sure what you mean. If it is a quick fix i will gladly look into it. Otherwise it'll have to wait behind my real life workload :(

Hey, thanks for your reply!

Here's a screenshot of part of my Opera installation with another theme (Nion 2 Green). As you can see, the green bar makes it very obvious which is the currently active tab.

In contrast, it's far less clear to see which tab is active in Nion Redux:

Get my point?

Thanks in advance!

Greetz!

Right, yeah i see the problem. I'm assuming you are using an opera theme? Because my opera actually has a blue background on my tabs and a nice red cross in the corner of the active tab.

I'll have a look into the problem see if i can find anything and if i can i'll tweak it for you, but you may have to wait until the weekend the earliest as I'm working all through the week :D

the wallpaper was included in the zip. All you have to do is set your computer to tile the wallpaper and then right click and set the royal flower_3 file and set as desktop background.

Hope that helps :D

I used stylebuilder, but a lot of the work was done by the two memebers listed in the comments section above. All i did was replace the start menu.

This is very soothing. No clutter. Just a comp. Just the way I like it.

Yeh i like the compact menus a lot as well, normally for me using a nice minimal skin and then having a big start menu pop up isn't something i like. Since i liked this style so much i thought it would be a great style to convert to a compact menu. And i think the menu itself fits a lot better with the style (although this is down to personal taste at the end of the day)
