This skin was previously edited to show the comments next to the artist when loaded onto a deck.
I don't believe this would have any thing to do with this.
Re installed the new version and still the same.

If you use an edited skin of vdj2020, it will indeed not show the features of vdj2021.
What we recommend in this case, if your edit was simple, is just edit again the default skin of vdj2021, and use a compare utility (for example this or any other similar) to check the difference between your edited 2020 version, and the new 2021 version, to quickly copy over the changes you made.

That may well have been modified by me...

I finally got it opened within VDJ. The default skin shows the edited portion.
So does the one saved as Default (edit)
PS: Where are the skins for 2021 stored. Everything I have is still showing 2019

To edit, you need to select it and click the 'edit this skin' link, which then creates an extracted default skin.
Any changes you make will be to the extracted edit, not the built in skin (which is a fixed thing).

Now when I go to the skins Default & Default (edit)
they both show the same changes from
<text fontsize="15" color="feat" action="get_featuring_after_artist" important="true"/>
<text fontsize="15" color="feat" format=" %comment" important="true"/>
Don't see why both are showing the same thing.
Only difference is the defaulty skin does not show the comments like the edited on.

In other words, if you made an edit of the old 2020 default skin, then trying to extract the new default will not work because there's already a folder with that name.
So if your old modified skin is in the 'default edit' folder, change the name of that folder, then extract the new default skin again (which will make a new default edit folder).
Got it? :-)

I edited it from the VDJ program.
When editing within VDJ it only has option to delete or show file

For Windows C:\Users\your windows user name\Documents\VirtualDJ\Skins

Also only shows Default.

If your old skin with the comment mod is in there, rename the folder to something else i.e. My Old Skin.
Then back in VDJ, highlight the built in default skin and click the edit link. That will make a new 'default' folder with the 2021 skin inside.

The left deck is fine, but the right deck still only
shows the title & artist.
