Another feature that you may find helpful in your day to day skinning.

Originally posted  on

It all started with another brain-freeze today. I just couldn’t find a section that contained the File Dialog places bar images. You know the bar on the left on the File->Save and File->Open dialogs? I bet you’ve been cursing more than once searching for a section like that. SkinStudio will help you with searching for a section if you know it’s UIS name or its part AND if such section actually exist. But in my case it didn’t.

Wouldn’t it be great if I could just lookup the section by it’s name or a part of it?

So I’ve added a tool button like you can see on the image below.

Press this button (or press Ctrl+F while the tree view is focused) and you’re getting the familiar “Find” dialog.

Enter the section name or a part of it and press the “Fine Next” button.

There you are… Where have you been? I’ve been so worried!

It will also work if there is more than one section matching, in which case SkinStudio will iterate through the sections when you press the “Find Next” button consecutively.

The feature will be introduced in SkinStudio 5 Beta, soon to be made available on Object Desktop.
