Sweeet into the lab I go!
Hey Master Yoda lol the name really fits! can't get a screenshot right now but I just wanted to let you know everything works as far as i can see!
I guess i'll have to think on something else for you to brainstorm

I did make a rather major error with the Landscape psd! I didn't realize that the 5-Row 2n3 layouts are slightly different than the 4-Row 2n3 layouts.
In essence the Portrait psd is correct for 5-Row and the Landscape psd is correct for 4-Row.
I'll get the corrected Landscape for 5-Row up shortly, and update the Portrait for 4-Rowers...

Nice. I'm a good bit of the way through fixing it, and hopefully it won't be too much of a pain that this fix is lending itself to reorganizing so that all you have to do is arm the keys for each layout with one click instead of opening sub groups, as well as completely separating overall 4-Row from 5-Row.
Sorry for the inconvenience!

Hey, apologies again for the inconvenience!
Here's the Landscape and Portrait psds updated and tested!
There's also a psd for the kb-shift-halo that will help play around with it if desired!
Light instructions included separately...
Feel free to let me know as soon as convenient about any kind of problems.
I would never take offense, in fact, quite the opposite. It would be extremely helpful and greatly appreciated!

Ok may be minor but the only thing I see that may or may not be an issue is that in the portrait psd you don't have the template for the P-2n3-3n7 layout but it is included in the landscape psd is that an issue right now I don't really know for sure just a heads up if it's needed. Well back in the lab will send you a screenie of the keyboard I'm working on tomorrow via pm don't wanna reveal it just yet nothing big but I've put alot of time into it to match a theme. Did I say tomorrow lol look @ the time! I mean later on today

too much of a pain transferring to a new psd...
Interested to see what you're workin' on!

Hey, just saw an opportunity to get a screenie of the More/Int (1 or 2 key) issue I mentioned at some point...
Thought it would even only be an issue for users without any International kb's installed, but apparently as pictured, this is an issue in Alert mode when in email fields compared to password fields...
This is only a problem with the "Hybrid" method where all symbols are plist hex controlled. It is possible and I was preparing a plist anyway that leaves out the Hex symbols for the "secondary" keys, and would require inserting maybe all custom images for those keys... Could be cool to come up with your own symbols that aren't text to keep the Bytafont flow.
This prob can also be easily overcome if desired by using the More/Int (1 Key) option.
Either way, we can bs more about the possibilities as needed!

O.k. doing 4 and 5 row together apparently fried my brain pretty good.
Realized that the updated Landscape psd was still flawed for use with overall 4-Row keyboards.
Attached is a final copy (at least for "Hybrid" use) of both the Landscape and Portrait psds. I'm very sorry to have created extra work as the result of a lack of thorough testing before posting. You know what happens when you assume...
Can't hurt to make any keyboard compatible with 4-Row and 5-Row setup, and I promise that these are tested completely to work with both!

It's all good buddy it all boils down to more practice for me and if there were no mistakes then it wouldn't be a learning experience. Lol yeh that stretching thing I dunno what to say bout that I kinda like the look though those blue buttons I got from the psd from leg1on. Also a nother question if one were to use this theme and don't have 5-row will it automatically switch to the 4-row? Or is it a necessity to switch the background images?
08-29-2011, 06:52 PM #133
Definitely digging the keys!
And agreed, repetitive menial work fixing mistakes has given me a good bit of my hands on experience across the board in Photoshop!
You would need to make 2 copies of the theme. 1 for 5-Row, 1 for 4-Row.
That's why I attempted to wrestle with including both overall setups in the psds. It's pretty obvious anyway, but the final .zip for L and P has just a few lines of instruction showing what to do for both.
Let me know about any questions and/or when you get finished up, I'm working on some plisting now and we'll chat about that and the other couple small decisions to make!

Hey Master Yoda well my friend this is what I came up with using the latest psd's you posted they were really an improvement i must say great job on those i completed the themes I've been working on! The only thing i didn't touch was the shift highlight wasn't a must have for this but that's something I'd like to try out next time around Enjoy my friend will keep checking in.
Here is the post I put in the Leg1on thread just now try em out if you like technically they were only possible because of you!
Guess the Storm has died down in here then.....
Ok folks even though Jazz already dropped his (thank you by the way!) I made a few
ColorKeyboards as well these are a new way to use colorkeyboard BIG THANKS no really like BIGGER THAN BIG THANKS to Phatmartino for making my dream a realization and leg1on for the PSD
Do you love keyboard with back grounds but hate that you cant see the font your using with BytaFont this is the answer.
5-row version and 4-row version! comes in two(2) colors! Blue and Black
also there are alternate background images in the theme folder for those who don't have an extra keyboard enabled like emoji n what not just rename regular files by adding or removing something and then remove the "A" from [email protected]
But too much talking more instructions in download
Leg1on Black 4R.rar
Leg1on Blue 4R.rar
Leg1on Black 5R.rar
Leg1on Blue 5R.rar
Thanks for all the toys MP got stuff to play with for tomorrow lol

brainstorming on design concepts. those keyboards i did were great but that was for Leg1on. Time to make something for myself!
