I have a question. What is the biggest factor in how widgets align on home screens? Is it DPI, grid size, or a combination of both? Here is why I ask. On Sense Rom's, the HTC widgets (and others) line up nice and symmetrical. For instance, if I have the standard HTC clock widget on the top portion of the screen and a row of app icons (or folders) along the bottom of the screen, adding for instance their agenda widget would fit proportionally between them. When I'm running an AOSP rom, the widgets don't seem to fit proportionally (or I haven't figured out how to do it).

It ought to be a combination of the DPI and the launcher you use. I think that DPI is a bigger factor, if I'm not mistaken, but different launchers also have options for how your icons and widgets fit on the screen. If you want to try and fit more stuff on the same screen, try playing with your DPI and see what effect it has. Also, check your launcher options as far as its rules for stretching and tile arrangements. The other option is to try different launchers.

Newest version has cm theme engine enabled and functioning for the first time.

This is my first successful build (other than a cm11 practice build). CM kernel and device tree. If something's broken, feel free to tell me about it, but I probably won't have a clue how to fix it.
