    My theme is saved as a thm. format file so it doesn't show up in the folder where I saved it. How do I make it a cod. format?

    In plazmic> File> export. A window will pop up with your theme discription. On the top of that box you have to options ALX or JAD. You want to save it as an ALX file (jad it for OTA). Select a folder where you are going to save the file. It will create an ALX and a .COD file. Then just follow the directions I gave you on how to load it on your simulator

    Now it's time to get crunching on my first theme.
    I'll be sure to post the OTA for the theme in the Blackberry OS forum... if I don't run into any other obstacles. Any tips?

    Well, I'm back already. lol. :-)

    Now when I try and export the theme so that I can test with the simulator, the exporting abruptly stops during the exporting process. Exporting stops loading at the "loading icons" point, and shuts the theme builder down.

    I also noticed that when I'm changing icons in the inspector, not all the applications are there. Some icons are missing. Why is this?

    No, just says, "theme builder has stopped working", and the program closes.

    Ok, so I tried reinstalling Plazmic and no luck. Can a thm. file be to large to export? I did not resize my png. icons, is this also required? I just assumed that they resize automatically to default.

    The thm file itself would not be to big, most likely the icon placement or text size usually are the culprits. But I dont know what you have modified so I cant tell you for sure. The best way is to start with a basic theme to ensure it exports correctly. If it does, then there is an issue with your current theme.

    Well, I ran a tester without the changed font and only a few added icons and it exported just fine. This is strange because previously I did export a few times using the different font.

    Lesson learned, after every change I make I need to make sure that it will export.

    I'm going to try and use the font as much as I can, it is what makes the theme, hopefully I can use it.

    Question: should I resize my icons to that of the default size in the app? Most of them are around 128X128 png., and some at 256X256 png. I noticed that the default theme icons are around 96X90.

    I would resize to 48x48, that is about the size of the original icon less the background

    Thanks, what is the easiest way to resize without losing any kind of image quality?

    Also, I seem to not be able to change the "setup wizard" icon. Plazmic shuts down whenever I try to change it.

    I use this one realworld icon editor

    You get a thirty day trial, then you either have to purchase or you can search for another

    I noticed that I don't have the option to change my download folder and a few other icons, why is this? How can I get so that I can change those also?
