Post subject:  Metro Pastel Light [7 style]

Here is another full pastel menu using Metro 10 colors that you may not need!
I forgot about the "Custom color" feature that comes with Win 10 1809. I can just make the menu brighter that way. :lol:
Anyway, it's made now.



Metro Pastel Light [7 style]

for Windows 10 only minimum CSM version 4.3.0


The last light menu I made, had glass pastel cream color, which is similar to SystemAccentLight3 of Gaurav's "Metro Color Variations (Pastel Colors)".
I wanted it a little brighter, so I mixed in some white on the menu bitmaps.
I tend to like blue pastel color the best. Brown earthy colors ok, green colors not so much. Yellows are just too weaky freaky.
Yes, blue is the best for me with transparency enabled, and glass opacity set to 0
For me, I either turn auto accent color on or just pick a blue color box in the Windows 10 "Personalize" settings.
If you want to make an even milkier menu, use the "Custom color" feature.
The only drawback is all the menu separators turn invisible when it gets close to white.
I put an option in the skin to have dark separators again.

EDIT:
I reuploaded skin with a change in skin text.
I sure do say "I" a lot. :)
I could not figure out why the "All Programs" button height, as well as search and jumplist views button height, goes too high sometimes.
I checked the original Metro .skin7 - the same problem. Ah, it dawned on me. Whenever "Show icon frames" option turned on, the selector height goes high.
I think the logic goes like this - The list and programs button icon padding was not defined,
so they followed the new main icon setting (Inherits from Main).

I had to add this text under the [ICON_FRAMES]:

List_icon_padding=3,3,3,3,100%
Programs_button_icon_padding=3,3,3,3,100%

EDIT: Added white split menu option.
