    Question Help with clock digits for a newbee :-)

    I try to add my own digits for the clock.
    But no matter what compination of bitmaps I make they're not visible.
    Is there a tutourial on this somewhere?
    How the two images should be made to get the right visible digits and the right "mask"?

    Re: Help with clock digits for a newbee :-)

    Well. I'm not that into vector graphics. Had hoped I could fix this with bitmaps.
    The standard digital clock font in Carbide.ui is terrible so I need a normal font (like the one in the "locked phone" screen).
    Anyone have one I can use?

    Re: Help with clock digits for a newbee :-)

    Have created new SVG digits with Inkscape.
    Compared to the example ones included in carbide.ui and they are made in the same way.
    But even if they look all right in the carbide.ui preview they are not displayed on the phone.
    Either there is a corupt mix or just wite frames, or the original "calculator" digits are still shown.
    I have checked that the digits are included in the package.
    Why is this so hard :-(

    Find no place describing in details now to create the "numers" and the "number shapes".

    Is there any tutorial somewhere?
    And maybe som example clock fonts?

    Thanks, but I sorted it out. Had to convert the digitis from a font-reference to a path (obviously since the N8 doesn't have the Microsoft fonts :-)
    Then it worked like a charm :-) Soon ready to upload som themes now :-)

    Re: Help with clock digits for a newbee :-)

    Two of my Themes are in the store allready ("Dark Solid" and "Dark Outline").
    Have two more for QA ("Dark Solid Anna" and "Dark Outline Anna").

    Have one problem though... Can't change the icons for "Tools" and "Social".
    I change them in carbide.ui (to Anna style) but they don't chang on the phone.
    So it seems the UIDs are different and I can't find the right ones :-(

    Any ID of what are the right UIDs for the folder "Tools" and the "Social" app on the N8?
