Once it's installed, extract this to your Documents\Rainmeter.
Run Rainmeter and navigate around in the left pain choosing "Unload" on the .ini's in "Illustrio." Then, choose "Load" on those in "Arachnid" for the ones you want. Drag them around to your hearts content.
To install...go to; My Documents>Rainmeter>Skins Then create a folder like, 'Arachnid (crystal-black)' Drag the folders from the download into the new folder. Refresh Rainmeter...Done. *NOTE* I'm using Rainmeter 2.1.0 r959 64-bit and Windows 7 64-bit...the install MIGHT be different with other Rainmeter/Windows versions.
To add text to the calendar...first go to 'Arachnid (crystal-black)' and open it. Then open the 'Calendar' folder. You should now see 42 folders named, '1a' '1b' and so on. Open the folder that refers to the day you want (this might take some extra time to figure out) and you'll find a '.txt' file...open it. Now type whatever you want and save. Now right click on the calendar skin and click 'Edit Skin' Under '[Variables]' you'll see the path for the folders '1a' '1b' and so on. Where you see \#User#\, change it to your user name on your computer...(so if your user name is 'Joe' just delete #User# and type Joe...ie: \Joe\). If the name of the folder you created when you installed the skin was 'Arachnid (crystal-black)' you should have to change anything else. Save. Refresh Rainmeter...Done.
Strike that first go to 'Arachnid (crystal-black)' and open it. You should now see 42 folders named, '1a' '1b' and so on. Open the folder that refers to the day you want (this might take some extra time to figure out) and you'll find a '.txt' file...open it. Now type whatever you want and save.
Once you edit the skin with your user name and save...whenever you want to input something just click on the day you want to edit and notepad should open; then edit the text and save.
Hey, I cant figure out how to add text to days in the calendar. I read you told one guy to "change your path to those the notes with each day", but I dont know what that means, I've just started using rainmeter. Can you (or anyone) help?
Im using your Calender, but i cant write anything in it. It just doesnt do anything, I can go over it like it should be able to press to write something, but when i press nothing happends.. please help
I really like the calendar but I can't get any text to appear in the boxes, if I click the boxes nothing happens, as well as if I enter text into the file nothing happens, and when I press the + sign for the notes box nothing happens, and I can't enter text into that either.
PLEASE HELP: could you guide me in changing the dimensions of the calender because im not that skilled at editing the ini files. I just want it to be a little bit smaller, so that it fits right in place with all of the other skins i have.
