    several questions about theme-ing.

    Advertisement



    so i'm still in my experimenting phase and i need a little help...

    1. how can i put a border around my dialog boxes?

    2. for the battery and signal meter...can i just make my own? what are the steps for that?

    3. why is it that when i use bigger font sizes...i try and save it as alx, but it says that the font for it is too big and wont be included...but i see all these other themes with bigger fonts?

    4. where do you guys get your icons? i downloaded the theme catalog files but everytime i try to use them..they wont show when im browsing because they're in .ctg?

    help...please? :cry: lol.

    hahahaha! thanks daddy! lol...but the whole catalog thing...i would look in the folder i got from your instructions and they're there...but everytime i try to open it on themebuilder, they don't show because they're not in image files but in .ctg extension?

    Did you get it figured out yet? You know you can always create your own tile images if you're any familier with photoshop or fireworks.

    i always use photoshop, but i'm not great with drawing my own icons and such... and i was wondering how i would be able to make a mattery and signal meter because won't i have to make ones that are at different levels? (signal bars & low batt-high batt)

    Well photoshop won't help you much cause its basically designed for already made photos what you want is photoshop illustrator to create icons in bitmap or vector.

    For battery and signal, yeah you'll need to create diff levels and then the layer has to split it self like in 11 or 8 times to show diff levels and stuff its kind of a process so if you really want to do it, my pin is in my profile.

    pixierebel...you can use the samples that plazmic gave you from your catalog to just change the colors to match your themes...instead of making new ones
