    TDK 4.6 Exporting Issue

    Advertisement



    I've been playing around with 4.6 a while and I find it's very cool. However, when I go to export a theme, I get a message that something has failed and Plazmic needs to shut down. Then it shuts down.

    I have noticed that if I start from scratch and only change the battery signal meter, it will export. But when I try to export a theme where everything was changed, it won't export.

    Anyone else having this issue? Anyone know why this happens.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    its buggy..... I have had some issues changing the fonts where it will say its exceeded a certain size, or can't render the focus.....its beta so you take what you gain with the version, with some bad while they are still fixing the holes

    i knew it was buggy. fortunately, everything we working just fine. the only bug is not being able to export a theme. bummer. that's not a "minor annoyance" bug.
    thanks.

    Hey if your using text that is not included on the blackberry it makes it crash when exporting use BB native text.

    the CDK draws from the fonts you have installed on your system (PC)

    from what I understand, if you aren't using the 'pre-defined' fonts on the 4.6 CDK, then it will crash ... so I'm guessing the calibri and tahoma is what is making it crash. just a guess

    I'm having this issue also, but I'm using the bold fonts that are included in CDK 4.6 and it is still crashing on export.

    ugh ^^ sorry to hear that.

    i tend to stay away from the Plazmic CDK beta's that are leaked .. they never work right and I'm pretty sure that Plazmic does that on purpose or ... its a beta for a reason

    Yeah I just get impatient, haha. Same thing with the leaked 4.5 os. I get to see all the benefits and can't bring myself to downgrade regardless of the bugs. Puts me in quite the pickle.

    I've found that if you stick to the system fonts ( the ones where you can't change the attributes) the themes are fine.

    the pros so far outweigh the downsides though for instance....

    The different Home Screen and Icon Screen Backgrounds.
    The SVG animation from composer that can be placed to make animated themes ( i'm using a coffee swirl one that turns heads ;-) )
    The extended range of the Banner from 80 pixels to a silly 120 pixels
    The Glow and Flash animated icon options
    The left-right or Up-Down navigation preferences to the profiles icon
    and of course...
    The ability to allow the application order to be determined by the device, even on custom screens

    It'll do for a while......some font fix would be so good though.......i want to use the chiller font for halloween hahahahah
