Currently it cannot resize resizeable widgets. A future update may fix this. This is my only complaint with LauncherPro, as I LOVE the quick contact widget Motorola has included with the Droid X.

I was afraid of this.

Thank you for the quick reply. The quick contact widget when placed does have two options below for the user to add. How come I can not add a default task to these options? It says I need to resize to add more tasks. It does show two available slots however.

I think the widget is confused and thinks it needs to be made bigger. I have the same problem on mine.

The quick contact widget does not properly function with Launcher Pro. You can place the widget on your home screen, but it won't let you add quick call/message options to it.

I just picked up the newest version of ADW Launcher and it allows you to resize most all the Widgets. It doesn't work the same way Motorola's home screen does - instead, when you select the widget and configure it, you are asked how many columns and rows you'd like it to take up on the screen.

What is adw? I have customized icons so if I got rid of launcher pro and got adw would I be able to keep them?

ADW is another alternate launcher. Many people like it as much or more than LauncherPro. Every launcher I've used allows you to keep custom icons if you make them in BetterCut.
