Placebo by slowboyfast Placebo by slowboyfast
Best served with Placebo Pure Morning & Cold Market:)
Tested on 1.1.14a - 1.3 b5, should be compatible with any version that can use WSH 1.5.6!

:bulletred: If you are having problems with messed up playlist, check your library tree settings. They should look like this.

(22-4-2013)***MINOR BUGFIX*** PBO buttons are aligned properly. Fixed controls in "Pure (Segoe Semibold)"

(10-4-2013)***UPDATE*** New PBO script, volume and control icons.

(31-1-2013)***MINOR BUGFIX*** Text clipping bug resolved.

(6-12-2012)***MINOR BUGFIX*** Volume bars are aligned properly now.

(27-11-2012)***MINOR BUGFIX*** "Playing" and "selected" items are now properly skinned.

(24-11-2012)***MINOR BUGFIX*** Fixed coding in headers.

(23-11-2012)***UPDATE*** Reworked nearly everything! Bottom does not look like MNLT2 anymore, blends better with Placebo VS. New buttons (taken from my other skin - The Spy), smaller toolbar, library moved to the right. Each style has 2 font variations (Segoe Semibold, Calibri). Enjoy!

(30-10-2012)***UPDATE*** Added new color scheme to match Placebo Cold Market, improved Pure Morning scheme, added gradients and stuff. Buttons are now part of PSS script, this means you don't need to load fixes, should work out of the box.
++2 styles included:
-Pure (dark toolbar / blue seekbar)
-Cold (light toolbar / dark grey seekbar)

(16-10-2012)***IMPORTANT*** Added pictures to explain how to edit tabs!

Hey bro, open up preferences > display > columns ui > colors & fonts > fonts

Select library tree > select custom and then change font size :) font is 8 by default :)
Bro dont work,i changed exactly how u tell me?!!
slowboyfast 1 day ago  Student Interface Designer
Ah yes, I fucked that up. Sorry. First, go back to fonts and make it how it was before.

Then, instead of fonts, you select colors, then library tree and then custom >>> Hit ok.
Then, you right click on library tree, select panel preferences, click on change font, and there it is >>>

Hope it's now working :)
bro,i just want 2 change font size on the right panel,where the songs are, not on the left on the library and playlist!
slowboyfast 1 day ago  Student Interface Designer
Jesus, I don't know why, but I saw left instead of right. Fuck, I'm sorry for the confusion!

Right click on playlist > settings > script > track list
look for:
change it to whatever you like.

Sorry again :) I was in haste.
man,i love u!sorry im noob,only 2 months until i use foobar..
Hi slowboyfast,

I love the skin but have two questions:

1. Is there any way to adjust the size of the library tree panel? It takes up the leftmost 40% of the screen right now and I'd like for it to only take up about 20-25%, leaving the remainder for the songs. 

2. I have the windows taskbar set to hide itself automatically and when I have foobar maximized with this skin, the taskbar won't pull itself up when hovered over and I have to use alt+tab to get out. Is there any way around this? 

Thanks in advance! :D Great skin!

Hey bro, 

1. Go to prefs -> columns ui -> layout and find this highlighted panel stack splitter. Click on it and press configure. In the new window you'll see 2 panels, Libtree and Elplaylist. Select first (X) and change its size from 35 to whatever you like. Same goes for second (y), select it and change it from 65 to whatever you desire :) Just remember that X+Y=100 (coz it's set to percentage).

2. Strange, auto hiding works fine for me. Maybe you were tinkering with foobar preferences? Coz I have no idea why is this happening :)
Could you explain the first point bettere? I can't change the library tree panel size
