Hey Guys/Girls,

There's a topic on what im about to ask here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2480256 however no-one has replied, hoping s4 mini users may be a bit more helpful .

Basically, I'm using Nova launcher and for the life of me can't get my widgets to look like they do in Touchwiz, is there any way to reduce the padding on the widgets?

I've seen someone saying that this is the reason they don't use Nova but Apex instead, can anyone confirm this?

With the screenshots, the one on the left is using Nova launcher and the one on the right stock Touchwiz.

Any help would be grweatly appreciated .

Cheers.

The Yahoo Weather widget is a 2x2, not 4x2.

Do you mean in my screenshot? I know as this is a size option with the Yahoo weather widget and i don't want the 4x2 widget. As you could see though, it looks much nicer in the Samsung Touchwiz than in Nova launcher (looks much more elongated).

I've set the number of rows and columns the same as Touchwiz as well as seting the height margin to non and width margin to small but that hasnt helped.

Cheers.

Looks the same on my s4 mini... It's not elongated unless you manually resize it. Have a look at the attached screenshot, please. Tell me if that's what you mean.

Hmm that looks much better than mine! How many rows/columns are you using? Also are you using Nova launcher? If so which version?

Cheers,

LOL. Yeah, I'm using the default everything in Nova Launcher. Nova Launcher is version 2.3.

BUT

The Yahoo Weather widget is a 2x2, default size. The BBC News widget is a 3x3 RESIZED into a 2x2 to fit into the top right corner. Like in the attachment.

Wow, complete amateur hour moment for me haha, realized that stock Touchwiz grid is 4x4. Changed this in Nova and now lines up better however there still seems to be quite a bit alot of padding above and below the alarm widget (small i know but annoys me ). Going to swith to Apex launcher and see what that looks like.

Anyway, thanks for replying arsradu

Cheers.
