Artist's Note


Scalable, Customizable Text Launchers for Rainmeter
Author: Eclectic Tech

A simple skin to create text that can launch items in Rainmeter. The size of the text can be quickly scaled using the mouse wheel. The size can be 'locked' after setting.

All aspects of the text can be adjusted using the included configuration skin; middle-click the text to bring up the configuration. Each AWord skin has it's own configuration settings. So each launcher can be unique, or you can create identical skins to use in a menu.

The AWord text can be any text; a single letter, or several paragraphs. The text is contained in a standard, editable file; "Label.txt". That file will be displayed with formatting 'close' to what you type there; spacing sometimes needs to be adjusted for displayed centering.

There are 9 pre-set AWord skins. To add more, simply copy the 'Word1' folder and paste a new copy in the 'AWord' folder. Rename it 'Word##' (## would be a unique number). Then open 2 files from the newly named folder in a text editor: "WordLaunch.ini" and "Config\config.ini". Using the Find/Replace option, find and replace all instances of "Word1" with "Word##" (the number you named the folder). There should be 28 replacements between both files. Save the files. "Refresh All" in Rainmeter. Your new launcher will appear in the AWord folder skin list.

RainFont by JS Morley (Rainmeter "Guru" Developer) is included to help you find different fonts on your system. If you find ones you want to use, it is recommended to copy the ttf files to the "AWord\@Resources\Fonts" folder. Once there, the skins can use them.

Feedback welcomed.
