Nine-Slice using the photoshop plugin

I've been looking into nine-slicing some of my image. I followed this doc : https://developer.blackberry.com/cascades/documentation/design/cascades_exporter/user_guide.html


So I opened the Button_non_textured and I exported it. What I go from the extraction is a png and a tmz file no XML. So I'm quite confused on how to get my aml file or xml file. What am I doing wrong?


Thank you for the help.

Re: Nine-Slice using the photoshop plugin

If you open the tmz file, you'll see it's got your xml and png. You should be able to drag the tmz file in, just as the docs suggest. (Look at the "Importing Images" section.)


Someone probably should figure out how to make the docs better, and get RIM to do so. Smiley Happy (Once you've done it once, the docs are fine... It's that first time...)
