    i'ma just post this here, for anyone using BBNotePad to edit/write .txt files for macros :|

    When using BBNotePad to edit macros, save using UTF-8 w/o BOM encoding. The other options threw errors for me.

    Thanks for all the hard work, effort and time! It's definitely appreciated! Hopefully you're keeping track of all these additions so that they can be documented in the http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe...tcutme-637024/ thread.
    Yes, I do keep track of changes. As soon as I get time to release the new version I will also update that thread with the new macros.

    Nice Theme By the way.
    In the themes, do you think it helps if you could have a link/Shortcut Icon (or whatever it is called) to a shortcut in ShortcutMe and not only ShortcutMe. For example an icon on the theme home screen that launches ZZZ shortcut in ShortcutMe and another one that launches ShortcutMe app?

    Hi Vijik,

    I've just purchased this great app on Blackberry App World. The thing is it's version 5.6.2.0, how can I upgrade to the latest version? The update function in the app doesn't work for me (Error reading/parsing data).

    Hope you can help! Have a nice day!
    Within a week (if not earlier) you should be able to get the latest version of SCM from App World.

    (I don't often upgrade my apps on App World because a lot of people get the "App is not available for download" error and I receive lots of emails asking me how to solve it).

    Nice to know.
    When I tested ImportMacro I made the file on PC and then loaded it to the micro SD card. I wasn't aware of this requirement for encoding if BBNotePad was used.

    I toyed about with Theme Builder for OS6 and from the best I recall you couldn't add parameters. Hotkey to launch SCM yes, but no parameter. ... That's just from what I remember though. Hopefully I'm wrong

    That's what I did also, but figured "on the fly" editing would be a neccessity. For anyone who wants BBNotePad it's freeware the webpage is here http://www.coolove.pcriot.com/

    And the OTA is http://www.coolove.pcriot.com/bbnotepad/1.1.3.Final/BBNotePad.jad

    ShortcutMe 5.9.4.6 (for 9900, 9930, 9810, 9850, 9860) is on beta link.

    New in 5.9.4.6:

    - Added StoreGlobals and RestoreGlobals macros
    Ex:
    StoreGlobals SDCard/BlackBerry/documents/macro_gl.txt; /*Stores all global variables into macro_gl.txt file*/

    RestoreGlobals SDCard/BlackBerry/documents/macro_gl.txt; /*Restores global variables from macro_gl.txt file, overwriting all existing global variables*/

    - Device Uptime is added to the screen for Device_Info_Plus function
    I think storing and restoring globals might be a good option from within the Common Config also. or even in the menu, where "Backup Configs" is.

    For importMacro make sure that you have a lineshift at the end of the text file.

    For Store/RestoreGlobal first use the StoreGlobal and see how the created file is formatted (still need a line shift at the end)
    Are there any limits? Is it a straight file to memory transfer? Does it read the file and puts the whole thing in memory? or does it read the text file one line at a time?

    Just asking because i tried importing a ~1400 character macro from a text file and the phone hung up completely, after a restart it threw the 517 jvm error, requiring an OS update/repair. I imported that before and it also hung up, but i did not let it run for so long as i did this time and the restart was normal. It worked fine with an import of a simple show macro from a text file.

    Its not good for too many characters i guess?

    It reads the file line by line and makes a string that contains all of the lines in the text file. Then that string is imported to the Macro Engine before it is executed macro by macro.
    So, it reads the whole thing in memory.

    If your BB is already low on available memory because of other apps, 1400 chars file might be a lot. Otherwise, it shouldn't be a problem (I assume).

    I believe there needs to be an error message for GetGlobal when the requested global variable does not exist. Right now the error message I get when using Show $$Result is "Error reading integer number, or number <500 in 'Show $$Result'.

    Maybe the GetGlobal could throw a "GlobalVariable $var does not exist" or something?

    @Juggalo20,
    It should set $$Result to "NotFound" if the global variable is not found.
    If it doesn't, then I will fix it.

    GetGlobal $rah;
    Show $$Result;

    Throws just throws that error I mentioned when global variable $rah doesn't exist

    Hehe nice, always said good programmers keep a log of changes and your works are no exception! Unfortunately as Juggalo20 mentioned, passing parameters isn't possible in themes... at least not from my experience.

    Thanks for the tips on BBNotePad! Always had it on my device to read .txt files, but never knew of the .zip capability! Pretty nice for a really old app!

    My Own Icons:

    Hope it's appropriate to post this question here ....

    1. Just bought MOI ... love it .... but one question:

    How do you remove and existing image and return the icon to 'Default?' (rectangle)

    I can change the image to something else .... but can't figure out how to totally remove the image, allowing it to default back to what it was when MOI was first installed.

    Thanks, in advance.....

    yeah.... about that.... heh, as far as i know there is no way to straight up strip the icon. however, here's the os 7 default icon (from back in the day when the "6.1" icons got leaked) so you can swap to it. Iunno what os you're on so... i'ma just assume os7 ;p i'll supply whatever one you want though, just lemmie know what os/device

    you have the option of having it added to /SDCard/BlackBerry/Pictures/ click the parameter button in the shortcut setup page. I dont actually have SCM installed atm or i'd give specifics. sorry got a white screen of death last night that i havent fully recovered from yet

    Hi there everyone

    Just new to this app and I am wondering if anyone can get the quick post icon in socialscope to work as a shortcut.

    Done as the app asks about naming and tried the *and # launch methods and no luck.

    BTW this app kicks ***. So functional and I love the ability to change wallpapers every launch.
