When family view is enabled, its icon gets over the notification icon on the top right. Please fix this, as i am unable to see my notifications.

Its overall design improvement, IMHO, is far more important that being compliant with Metro.

And I noticed you put a "UI" in front of "Metro" by mistake. "Metro UI" is an inventive third-party name that refers to the Metro-complaint portions of Windows shell, e.g. the Start screen, the charms, the task switcher for Windows Store apps, the welcome screen, and the notification center.

EDIT: Never mind, I reacted too hastful...

Didn't realize when I updated from 3.9.3 again that it had just moved the portion of the chat box where I type the message below the task bar so it looked like it was as small as it could go before. Currently, the minimum height the chat window can be is 400 pixels in v4.0.1 (and v4). In previous versions and in the default steam skin the chat windows can be sized down to 351 pixels which at that height fits perfectly between my chrome window and sidebar. TBH this is deal brekaing for me, but I'm not sure if it is for anyone else so I'm not sure if you'll ever "fix" it but I'm hoping you will.

Thanks though for all your hard work, think I'll just use the default skin.

I don't know if this has been addressed but is there a way you could implement an adding non steam games button for the library for the next update?

It's already there. Top left you will see 3 lines stacked then click it and it will open a context menu (menu) and you will see add non steam game to my library along the menu. Five from the bottom.

I also found these bugs and tried to fix 'em.
sta.sh/01fx1rabijdm - I hid the search icon because I couldn't manage to set any Y or margin-bottom to it so it can go any higher.

hey I'm such a big fan of this skin, but I have one suggestion:

Could you pls (for all those steam traders out there) implement a shortcut to the trade offers?
It could be an extra icon or an option in the dropdown menu below the user name.

thanks a lot for your awesome work!! :3

Can't say I'm a big fan of the latest version...

It's not that this is bad, it isn't.  I just don't like the new Windows 10 incredibly simple and rubbish icons.  I much prefer the Windows 8 style icons.  

That being said, I believe that the layout was better in 3.9.X and that you should have kept the steam logo behind the library icons.

Dense guys like you should check their sources before writing bullshit.
Believe it or not, he also made this site.
I think you would believe he just copied it even when some random guy would copy his site and say he actually made it, right?
Srsly, spammers like you who just made an account for a pointless comment should be banned instantly.

Is there any way you could make a high ppi version for 4k monitors so it doesn't look soo blurry? Like take all the size values and multiply them x2?

Not easily, I'm afraid. Even then, I think Steam still scales the client in a very lazy way.

Isn't that the windows dpi scaling feature? I don't think Steam itself has a scaling feature.

Still wondering if you plan on making it so you can make the chat boxes as small as in v3.x.x?
Reply
:iconboneyardbrew:
BoneyardBrew Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
I didn't really change any chat boxes that I can remember off the top of my head. A couple text boxes, but they still occupy the same container so no real loss there.

Well, there is a certain spot I like to put my chat box on my second monitor that would barely fit how I wanted it at the smallest vertical size. When I updated to 4.0, the smallest I could make the chat box vertically was still 100 pixels larger than previously.

I'm such a perfectionist that I'd rather use the ugly regular steam skin or 3.9.3 since it doesn't have this issue. That's fine and all but using 3.9.3 will get more and more visual errors as steam updates sadly.
