At wits end, please help with New Msg *
I spent nine straight hours trying to figure this out yesterday and so far another three today, so someone PLEASE HELP!
When making my home screen in composer I use the exact same images as I do in TB6 but for some reason the New Message overlay is getting cut off on the home screen and I can't figure out for the life of me why as it appears perfectly on the app screen. The images used are;
Tab Underlay 80x72
Focus Icon Underlay 80x72
New Overlay 68x68
I have tried adjusting the sizes, using bigger icons, smaller icons, making the icons wider than tall (a suggested fix I used previously which now doesn't work for some odd reason) etc. The later of these makes it better as the * appears as it should when it first loads, but as soon as the icon is focused on, it cuts it off and remains that way.
I have tried everything I can think of and can't get the New Message * to appear with cutting off at some point. I brought another more experienced developer into this and he discovered he's actually having the same problem too and can't find a fix for it either
This morning I got frustrated enough that I imported all the above images into Composer to make sure the sizes weren't off and they're not as they line up perfectly. So I am guessing this has more to do with TB6 than Composer or anything that I am doing specifically, however, the problem doesn't occuevery timeme. In fact, I haven't had this issue at all until now, at least not with the standard size icons (I've only had this happen with mini icons).
Does anyone have any suggestions before I give up on OS6 theme completely?
Thanks in advance to anyone who replies!
I finally found a solution to this issue, and also, this was for the 96xx series...

It didn't seem to have any effect on anything else, but the * now shows without any issues and as an added bonus, when I convert the theme to OS5 I can use the same Composer file without having to do another ;-)
