Re: How to load OS 6 theme on OS 5 device

Well if you have alrady made an OS6 theme, try creating a new project compatible for OS5 and choosing 'import' from File > Import. Then just choose the OS6 theme builder file. I hope that makes sense.

Have you tried creating a new theme for an os6 device, saving it and then create a new theme for os5 and then importing? By default you should get the os6 layout

Re: How to load OS 6 theme on OS 5 device

There is no way of exporting the default OS6 layout to an OS5 device. What you can do is get your creativity going and make an SVG file that mimics the default OS6 layout.

Re: How to load OS 6 theme on OS 5 device

Exactly my point. Only through an svg can you actually mimic the OS 6 layout for an OS 5 device. I have tried this sometime back, but there always seemed to be a bug or two in the working of the dock. Lets hope that someone can help out on this in the near future!:Rolleyes:
