    Question Softkey button problem - Carbide 4.0

    Can anyone please explain why I keep having this 'silly' problem when creating a theme for my Nokia N97 mini...?
    (F.Y.I. I'm using the TMA S^touch plugin because the other plugins I found for S60 v5 or N97 are not good enough for me...)
    First I made a completely white theme...this was easy to do & didn't encounter any problems. After that I wanted to create a completely black theme...
    Why? Simple...for example: at night, while driving, I get a call... (cell is in car holder) -> the white theme is so bright that it lites up my face (lol )
    The problem I'm having is this:
    After installing the black theme I notice that my softkey buttons aren't visible. I don't understand how that is possible because all I did was changing the white to black & vice versa (starting from the white theme)
    The white theme shows softkey buttons & the black one doesn't... I tried using the multi-piece elements like in the white theme. Then I tried it with an SVG-image that I created by combining the nine pieces in one image...but again no luck... I also tried changing the next items:
    qsn_bg_area_control_idle
    qsn_bg_area_control
    qgn_graf_bg_prt_bottom_mask_icon
    qgn_graf_bg_lsc_side_right_mask_icon
    qgn_indi_sctrl_mask_act_prt
    qgn_indi_sctrl_mask_act_lsc
    qgn_indi_sctrl_sk_mask_left_prt
    ... (probably all the "Area"components wich could possibly affect the control area and/or softkey buttons)

    THE only thing that works is converting to bitmap but in that case the buttons look like crap...
    I've added a few screens to clarify...

    Hi,
    Try to change the color for the softkey background mask..you could find it in N97 plugin (i'm using v.3.2.0)
    Use white (#ffffff), then it will make the softkey button image goes solid. Black (#000000) for a complete transparent.. or you can make your own gradients effect
    Its also works for the others symbian 5th series...
