Post Minimalistic Text Thread

The idea of this thread (thanks ral) is to share tips, tricks and settings to do with minimalistic text.

I've had the app for a while myself and not been using it. I normally delete apps that I don't use, but haven't with this one... keep telling myself that I will spend a bit of time with it and work out how to get what I want out of it - perhaps now I will

Day-Date Minimalistic Text Widget (Top right of image)
Next Appoint Minimalistic Text Widget (Bottom left of image)

In order to use this widgets:

1. Install Minimalistic Text from the Google Play Store. The app is free, but there is a donate version. Buying this will support the app developer.

2. Download:

DayDate Minimalistic Text Widget (DayDate-ral.mtpref)
Next Appoint Minimalistic Text Widget (Appointment-ral.mtpref)


3. Unzip and copy the .mtpref files into /sdcard/MinimalisticTextPreferrence
4. Create a Minimalistic Text Widget on your desktop.
5. Scroll to the bottom of the screen and select Restore. Confirm your action.

Notes:

DayDate - As seen in the image, DayDate was created using a 3x2 (Horizontal) widget. Other sizes will work too, but the scaling may be wrong.

Appointment - As seen in the image, Appointment was created using a 1x2 (Vertical) widget. I than resized manually widget on the home screen to center the text. Other sizes will work too, but the scaling may be wrong.

this is mine using this file

much the same as rals but i prefer his layout. it must be the size of the widget. where hes used 3X2 horizontal, i think i started mine as 2X1 but cant be sure.

this is something i dont understand. what are the 3 and 2? rals done 3X2 but its over 2 lines, whereas i think mines 2X1 and it takes up 3 lines.

anyone explain how that works? also dont understand normal, accented and non-accented text. dont know what the difference is and why theyre called that.

EDIT: look at that battery too!! 83% at half 5 teatime!! :-D

Tried another alternative for a minimalist home screen.


MonthDay Minimalistic Text Widget (Top right of image)
DayofWeek (Bottom left of image)

In order to use this widgets:

1. Install Minimalistic Text from the Google Play Store.
2. Download the zips below.
3. Unzip and copy the .mtpref files into /sdcard/MinimalisticTextPreferrence
4. Create a Minimalistic Text Widget on your desktop.
5. Scroll to the bottom of the screen and select Restore. Confirm your action.

Notes:

MonthDay - As seen in the image, DayDate was created using a 2x1 (Horizontal) widget. Other sizes will work too, but the scaling will change.

DayofWeek - As seen in the image, Appointment was created using a 3x1 (Horizontall) widget. Other sizes will work too, but the scaling will change.
