2) Using 7zip extract the 'res\drawable-xhdpi' folder into the folder you created. This folder will contain the pngs that control some of the keys, outlined in red on this pic:

what pic? TIA...

Keyboard Height
I'm trying to change the height of the keyboard because i added a row of number keys. I changed the value keyboardHeight in dimens.xml and it doesn't seem to do anything. Does anyone know of a different value i have to change to make this happen? Thanks.

Update:

If you change the keyboardHeight in the styles.xml it works. I still don't know why changing the value in the dimens.xml didn't work when the one in the styles points to that value.

And i saw some links to apk tool. One of my greatest developer friends Lorjay589 developed a very user friendly way to compile and decompile.. You may have heard of it.. Team Rejectz quick fix. Here's a link to the latest updated version... http://d-h.st/k3N .... Black Hole SuperNova is coming to suck you in...

rompnit,

Do you know of any reason why a keyboard will not return a new line within the stock email app? I am using the paid Swype from the play store and from what I remember, I just started having this problem.

At first I thought it might be due to me, since I did theme it, but I uninstalled my themed one, and tried the one from the play store, with no success.

Two questions. 1) Do the apk files need to be signed to be installed as system/user app. Does it need to be signed when used in the flash able zip? 2) How to change the color of the gesture trail? Thanks

1) No because you are actually moving files into the original apk w/o breaking the sig
2) What keyboard? It varies..
