    Default Changing size of those big icons!

    Hello all!

    Boy do I love my Nook now that I've configured it to my needs. Added Wifi PEAP access, added my favorite RSS feeds, found a way to retain folder structure while browsing my PDFs either using Trook or Filemanager (w PDFviewer), and stocked up on wallpapers and screensavers!

    But there's one thing that's REALLY bugging me. It's the size of the icons. They're really big, and 2 icons take up the entire LCD screen. See http://www.box.net/shared/hvb1y2la0l I'm not a huge fan of swiping of touchscreens, and you can imagine a folder with tens of PDFs would require many swipes. I was wondering if anyone is familiar with the android api/ xml/ whatever the language to suggest some way where I can change the size of the icons. I think a "list view" would be much preferable to the current "thumbnail" view found in Trook, and Filemanager.

    Ideally, I would think that the LCD screen would be able to fit say 3 or 4 columns of 4 rows of (icon + filename).

    Not knowing programming is indeed a pain...

    Anyone?

    Regards,
    Jay

    @ Jay... Welcome to NOOKBOARDS!

    By chance, did you check this out at NOOKDEVS.COM or send them a post?

    Give our techies here (on NB's) a chance to respond.

    @ Donna

    Thanks for the welcome. I posted it as an issue on the Nookdevs wiki page as well. At present, Hari's reply seems to indicate that it is possible. http://code.google.com/p/nookdevs/issues/detail?id=105

    In terms of coding, I'm not sure how much effort it'll take of them. Given the long list of issues pending on their page, I think there's a queue.

    Still hoping for responses here. More help the merrier I guess.

    Mess? What mess?

    Those are RSS feeds of news headlines. If I remember right, it should be under Trook> My feeds.

    Jay, thanks for the update... If you do hear more, definitely post back here. If one of your fellow soft-rooters have a answer, I am sure they will pipe up forthwith.
