    Yes, the static menu does seem easy to acheive as David said, don't use the global tags, but the tags for the buttons which are on the main screen... Shouldn't be too hard.

    Oh, and I forgot to ask before, are you keeping Nav buttons on the left for the GPS screen to keep vertical height as big as possible... I hope so


    One more thing - Get a move on We all NEED this skin


    Funny isn't it how skins can make people flit between front ends, well the skins and the fact that most of CF's configuration takes place from within skinned menus and not in crappy ini files... Thats whats letting RR down at the mo IMO. Having to tweak everything constantly to make it work
    So for now, Im a CF man. But CF and Freedrive won't coexist properly on my system and CF's Dest plugin is missing quite a lot of the functions found in FD...

    Its never easy is it?

    two other things:

    First have u tried to scale it? i notice that u use kind of "interlaced" look with small horizontal lines... i dont know much about graphics, but im just concerned have u tried to scale this design... does it work gracefully?

    And the centras app icons... I see they're not worse than lexuses... but i still dont like them at all... i would like much more abstract design... now i know thats easy to replace myself... but im sure u could come up with much neater look than original ones...

    re Interlaced lines and scaling: I have not tested it, but assuming you keep the height constant (i.e., 480 pixels) you will have no problem with this whatsoever. If you change the height it will start looking a little strange depending on the resolution, but it is not all that bad -- I just tried 800x600. Most LCDs in this forum are 480 pixels in height anyway, so there's a good chance it will look perfect


    re icons: I agree, I am not a big fan of 'photographic' icons. But I am biased because I used to design 32x32 bitmapped icons in the old days. (which is really quite a feat, yet fun).
    I like icons that are less complex. But the beauty of CF is that you can replace with any PNG icons of your liking. I'll try to include some different icons on my initial release of this Nexus skin.

    Not something you can do with a skin, I'm afraid.

    re: adding a static menu.... won't happen.

    I cannot find a way to add a static menu AND keep buttons large enough. So, I am in total agreement with David on this one now -- the static menu 'as we know it' has to go. I wish there was some clever way to have it pop up on the screen when needed... like if you approach the screen with your hand it will pop up. LOL.

    (in a regular PC, the equivalent is to move your mouse... no such thing in Touchscreens though).

    yes i guess i understand this.... its just i personally use 10" 4:3 tablet with pen interface, so i have no use for bigger buttons... actually on my screen those big "baby-sized" buttons look rather unappealing... old centra was veeeery fine on my screen. I think ur skin is light years better than centras current design... but i think i still need to continue look for solution which will work for me.
