XML layout for Players


I no longer find the information regarding XML layouts. I’d like to use an XML for my players because I no longer want the artist and title information being displayed there. The playing tracks are highlighted in my playlist already, so I’d like to make the players smaller and create extra space for the playlist itself.
Setting a fontsize value of 0 for artist and title doesn’t work.

Is there a template for XML layouts or can I hide artist and title info using the skin.ini file?
When creating XML layouts, do you place them in the config folder?

Many thanks!

I must admit that I haven’t taken care of that feature for years, and the only documentation is probably this thread in the German forums from 2011…
