    oh, this patch keeps gettn bettr & bettr! I keep changing my setup bak & forth as you enable more possibilities. To make it quick, the ability to combine pages in edit view would be neat, so that all icons of combined pages are then on a single page.

    thanks for all the work sconix!

    +1 I opened it a couple times too. Weird though, this app didn't show up until this last app update.

Maybe two sliders or selection boxes that allow you to change the horizontal and vertical dimensions by, say +/- 5 pixels. That way, Sconix wouldn't have to try to accomodate all of the possible launcher configurations for icon spacing (hidden/shown Page Headers, QL Bar, Icon Titles, etc.) He can just provide the basic framework in the form of the existing Small/Medium/Large grid spacing and icon sizes, and let the users adjust the padding from there.
    garavin, thanks for making this request.

    sconix, thanks for honoring it! This patch is so cool now, it's scary!

    Sconix, I have noticed some odd behavior over the course of the last 2 or 3 updates.

    I have quite a few cards, the one all the way to the left (all marks at the bottom are on the right) is the one where new apps go. The next card to the right is the page that opens when I launch a page, its my quick launch page, those apps I use most.

    The oddity happens when I try to swipe to the right from the default page. I never go to the page immediately to the right, but instead go to my games page (3 marks lower right, 11 marks lower left). Once I swipe from there, everything stays lined up.

    If I swipe to the left instead, seems to always go to the most left page (all 14 marks in lower right) like it should.

    Yes, I also have a quirky swipe thang going on; it sometimes swipes to the opposite direction. Not that big of a deal, but a bit annoying.

    BUT IT'S MINOR COMPARED TO THIS GREAT PATCH!!

    (wait for it.....)

    I'm just sayin'.......

    If you are using page wrapping this may happen and there is nothing that I can do about it, it works better on some situations than other (the page wrapping is a hack that fights against scroller widgets normal functionality). If you are not using page wrap then do you have any drag radius patches installed which might cause this. At least my patch does not touch the "swiping" part of the launcher, its still normal widget controlled by palm code.

    Remove all launcher patches from preware as well as any other "unhide xxx" patches. Ex: unhide devmode

    This is a great patch, I like the fact that it gives you options. Thankyou greatly. Is there anyway to have it change the font size below each icon? That's all I'd like extra is a few choices there since so many of my apps now have cariage returns in weird places due to long words. Usually its just two orphaned letters, so I though changing the font size may help. It would be very appreciated. Thanks.

    Frickin' AWESOME!!! The slider for vertical grid sizing is a fantastic addition. With Medium Grid, Large Icons, 2px vertical spacing, Page Name headers on, Icon Titles Off and Hide QL Always I've got perfect 4x5 spacing. Genius!

    ACAL, Mode Switcher (plus Mode and Today patches) and System Mods are, IMHO, must-haves on any Pre or Pixi. Throw in UberKernal and Govnah, and the Pre is literally a v2.0 phone. Thanks for making the wait for the next Palm phone and WebOS version a viable option!

    One question... Does anyone know whether it's possible to turn off the "auto-arrange" feature of the launcher whereby the icons always fill in complete rows from left to right? I'm not asking because I'd like to see this included in a future release, but sometimes I think I'd like the option to place icons on a launcher page and have them snap to the nearest grid position, but not necessarily fill in an empty space in a row or column.

    Just saying it would be cool if there was an option for that. Maybe in ACAL 2.0...

    You're welcome, but it's all down to Sconix's genius work. I have a feeling he'd have come to it on his own soon enough; I just piped up when I saw all those posts from users asking to tweak the spacing this way and that. The ACAL patch is, after all, about granting users the most control possible over their launcher.

    But if I helped to spark the work on the slider, well, I'm honored to have played a little part in what is, hands down, one of the top 2 or 3 patches for WebOS phones.

    Same thing used to happen to me every now and then. Since I've turned off page wrapping, the problem hasn't recurred (BTW, I use the Reduce Drag Radius to 8px patch).

    I already set the title width to maximum in my opinion. With two full length titles next to each other leaves only 2-3 pixels space between. So even when set to maximum it would give one letter more at the most. And still there always would be someone who has longer names that does not quite fit. So only option is to set smaller icon size or smaller grid size to get more width.

    Yes thanks for the idea. I don't always have the time to think all implementation ways myself so feedback/ideas are always appreciated. And I may not always take into those ideas, but when it reduces amount of code needed and gives more control I am all in
