    ok its my first attempts at creating a skin for blackberry
    i did few skins for winamp so im kinda familiar with the whole procedure

    i red tht the user guide and help file an they wre both pretty confusing
    so in other words i came out knowing no more than i did before i red them.
    i have few questions about using the builder tho.
    first of all
    1
    how are the resources sorted in folders.
    i cannot figure out what folder/file belongs ot what theme
    you go to C:\Program Files\Plazmic CDK 4.6\samples\Themes\Images
    and theres all sorts of folders with different image sin them and soem are same inages contained in different folders.
    what folders do i need to create custom theme(images, sounds,code)


    2)Tmobile curve has a custom theme with different fonts and different pictures.
    where can i get an unpacked tmobile theme, i want to see hwo its made


    3) tmobile theme has a bottom line of the hoem screen with 4 icons.
    but i wasnt able to find it anywhere in plazmic.
    and can i have more than 5 shortcuts( kinda like scrolling tru offscreen icons)

    4)is there a way to make the homescreen shortcuts in circle (a dial shape i guess) in the center of screen?

    5)is it possible to change the dimentions of certain button oricon?
    for example i want to make the battery meter adn signal meter longer and thinner?
    is it possible to load different fonts in plazmic?


    i have an idea for a really badass theme that i have not found anywhere yet
    so i want to make it for everyone and take my time on it so it will come out as good as or better than preloaded theme.

    1. Those folders contain the default images and are sorted by screen size and theme type. They will be loaded by default when you create a new theme in Theme Builder.

    2. You can't.

    3. It's probably a bottom dock custom theme.

    4. Yes. Use a custom them and place the icons wherever you want them.

    5. Yes and yes. Look at some of the included meters and you'll see how it's done. It's also described on the documentation. You can use any TrueType font that's installed on your PC.
