So, how do I get dual panel enabled in apps as well? Any thing I am missing? I am changing DPI to 240 and checking tablet. It still doesn't change. I have tried without checking tablet too.

Do I also have to enable tablet? I already have dual panel enabled. Just not working in the email app. It does show dual panel in the email settings though.

Enable Tablet, set DPI to 180 ... If it didn't work then ALSO enable Dual Panel in ROM Control .... Also, don't forget that you have to kill the app to see changes ... Also did you enable the module "ReVolt Per-App-DPI" in Xposed Modules ?

Ok, so I figured it out. Just thought I would post this to help anyone else that sees the issue.

1. Enable dual panel
2. Select the app you would like to configure in per app settings
3. Enable the settings
4. Set dpi to 220 or less
5. Change default to 600x1024 or greater depending on your preference.
6. Save settings
7. Select yes to kill app

You're done and you should see dual panel mode in the app!

I also would add that you should check the tablet box. I just tested without that checked and it didn't do dual panel without it. Thanks for adding it to the OP!

Expanded desktop

When in expanded desktop to use pie controls is there a way that one's status bar / notification / toggles can be displayed / accessed. Or is the only way to swipe chevrons. Thank you.

Don't try to flash the last nightly (04-19-13) . The size of the file is only 30 Mo !
So wait for the next Nightly build, or a re-upload of the full file ?

Does this ROM use Xposed or PA's Hybrid system to manage DPI for apps? I saw the feature list mentioning Xposed, but the latest changelog mentions the removal of Xposed?

Hello, I'm fairly new to this whole ordeal so please show patience! I looked at your ROM for the nexus 4 and liked it a lot but I was somewhat annoyed by the batterylife icon you had, couldn't see it mentioned anywhere though so I was wondering if that icon is something that you have added afterwards (that's not part of the rom) or if it's easy to switch it out for me once the rom is installed?

    You can enable the nav bar hide toggle then enable it .... Without enabling expanded desktop you will not see navigation bar but will see status bar ..... Other option I'd to enable pie

    This thread doesn't got much hype. Id take it that this ROM is well built and doesn't have many bugs or issues?
