Does this update include any GUI related performance improvements? For example, are GUI elements batched if they share the same source texture?

I've discovered the source of the problem on Mac after long debugging session, I've reached the max opened files limit by the system (it's only 256).
I'll workaround this ASAP.

Hey Greg.

Congrats with the new Gui Skins. I think they'll make the interface design a lot easier. I'm currently designing a nice interface for one of my projects and so far it's going very well.

One thing that might help us even more is some kind of color scheme (or 'swatches' in adobe speak). The current skin system is very powerful, but when you decide to change a color in a skin an all related panel-images and text styles, you have to type in the RGB values at about 30 or more color dialogs.

I know I can change this afterwards in code, but that kinda defeats a purpose of a nice visual editor, right?

Hi!

What I've just done is that I've added "RGBA" textline to the Color Picker where you can change the entire color with just one Ctrl+V paste.

Looks really good. smile

I did notice 2 things:
1) the element names in the code editor are no longer vertically centered- they are too low, so characters like y hang out below the background coloring.
2) When going to the color theme editor, there are 2 options for "Element Name". Both of them adjust the color of the element name in the code editor; I'd assume one of them was supposed to be for the project element names in the side bar. It should probably have a different name to distinguish it as well.

I do have a screen shot, but upon further investigation, I found it only happened in the "Loading Assets" tutorial:
   
All other instances of element names seem to be properly placed. :-/
