    Something is still not right here.



    My start menu is taller than yours due to more programs. Not sure if that matters but I did match your margins.

    I did notice in your first picture the image is proper and not stretched but in the last one it's stretched vertically.





    The dimensions of my start menu from the top to the bottom where ProgramsList ends is:

    444: High
    260: Wide

    The proper setting I need to use is TRUESIZE but I need a true size ProgramsList frame.

    You need to learn how TILE works in SIZINGMARGINS.

    I can't help you anymore in this topic, try learning stuff yourself.

    Thanks for your help did make some progress but I have a teensy error. What I did to get a larger panel was import the blank one you sent before your latest message. Opened it and extended the height of it and exported that. Opened it in Photoshop and chopped off the bottom to get the proper height I needed. While I DID find out the proper height I need and successfully made the image fit. There are gradient errors.





    What you see in the PS Screen above is the dimensions I need to work with but like i said I imported the template you sent me and chopped it off to match 444 Pixels. I guess that messed with the gradient blends so it doesn't look natural. How can I get a native 260x444 template?



    I would indeed like to learn about margins.

    try going through the guides i linked before.. as shem said without learning (reading up on the basics & then practicing or trying various things on your own) .. you cant make any progress with this

    You're getting this all wrong, you shouldn't have cropped the image. Honestly it's not that hard, but it's somehow very difficult to explain it to you. If I can get my screenshot to not have any or the errors that yours produced, than you can can find a way to fix them on your end. You need to try things yourself to see if something works.

    i'll try to explain in short.. it is not always about the dimension of the image.. Sizing Margins are:
    say you have a 4x4 image & you set your sizing margins as 1,1,1,1.So that means, of the 4x4 image, 1pixel on each side will be left out of the render & windows will use the rest 3x3 portion of the image to draw on the screen.
