Theme Problem - Update Time Cutting Off

I changed the firmware on my Verizon Treo 700w to 1.22, and of course the first application is WeatherPanel. I am noticing a strange issue in the Stealth skin. It seems to be cutting off the first digit of the "Updated Time" in the skin - when the time is double-digit (10, 11, 12). This is the first time I installed it via the new cab file that includes the new .dll, the WP-Auth, and the moons. Usually I do it all manually but just discovered this new .cab install which is VERY nice! Any ideas when it's cutting off the 1st digit? In the screen shot you can see what I am talking about - it should say "10:09". I then went through installing the rest of my apps and it never corrected itself.



Thanks!

It could be that the "cleartype" font setting has been changed in your WeatherPanel configuation. This is one of those WeatherPanel settings that you can't normally see on the Treo, becuase it gets cut off.

To see all of the WeatherPanel settings (on the Treo), access them through the Today settings: Start -> Settings -> Personal -> Today. Select the Items tab, highlight WeatherPanel and tap the Options button. You should now have a vertical scroll bar that allows you to scroll down to settings you don't normally see.

On the Display tab, there's an option called Enable ClearType Fonts. Check or uncheck that and see if it has any effect.

The only other option is to modify the layout file to give the time display a little more room...

Oh Well

That didn't work. Any ideas on how I can change the layout?

(By the way anyone else notice how slow this forum is?)

Any idea on how to do modify the layout file?? The ClearType idea you had (good idea by the way) didn't resolve it.

This is rough...

Wish I could - every time I go to PM you I get the dreaded:

500 Internal Server Error

What's funny is, when trying to tell the admin on this forum about this issue as it states to do, is I am getting the following bounce:

<webmaster@forum.ppcgeeks.com>: host forum.ppcgeeks.com[208.113.162.16] said:
554 <webmaster@forum.ppcgeeks.com>: Relay access denied (in reply to RCPT
TO command)

Is there another forum I can reach you at because this is ridiculous?

Oops...

Sorry I just noticed this. I figured out how to change the layout file and changed the font size to to 9.5pt which makes it fit. But using your layout works great! Thanks and sorry for the very late response!
