Themer’s Warning: update your themes
Update: There’s a new theme template here
Hopefully soon we will be releasing a little update for ADW.Launcher but before doing it we’d like to warn ADWThemes developers out there: There are a few *small* changes you must accomplish or your themes will look ugly.
First thing is the removal of the app drawer button as a themable object because we’ve converted it into another Action Button. That means you should include your app drawer icon as a “standard icon” on your theme’s icon pack so users can select it if they want. In conclusion, there’s no “handle_icon.xml” (ic_tray_xxxx).
So now the “main” dock consists in lab/lab2/mab/rab2/rab and all of them are customizable Action Buttons so the theme can only change the background. Oh, and make sure you test your theme with more icon sizes, the limit for AB-Scale Factor is now at 1:1.
Old ADW version had the “handle.xml” file providing the background to the dock’s middle area, now it’s changed to “mab.xml” and you should treat it the same way you treat lab.xml, rab.xml, etc.
The other small change is the position/size change of the “Trash Can”. As the whole bottom area is drag-and-drop friendly, sometimes the trash can was hard to hit or sometimes users missed the target putting items into the dock when they really wanted to delete them or vice-versa.
Now the trash zone is located at the top of the screen, using the whole width of it. So adapt your graphics.
I don’t know if i forget something, but here’s a TEST APK only meant for themer’s so they can start working and testing their themes. This APK is “separate” from ADW, so you don’t need to uninstall/reinstall/etc. Just download, install, open org.adw_test.launcher and start tweaking your themes.
PLEASE, THIS IS A TEST VERSION FOR THEMER’S, DON’T USE AS MAIN APP, DON’T REPORT BUGS (unless they are theme-related) AND DON’T ASK FOR SUPPORT (unless is theme-related)
Apologizes for all the mess (and the upcoming… :P)
