    When are you getting that "could not launch" message - immediately after selecting "change shortcut"? Or when you try and press that icon to launch your application?

    That sounds like the contacts isn't assigned correctly. Go through the steps I listed in my previous post, and select applictions -> contacts. That should correctly assign it to your contacts.

    Here is what I did:

    Held the "Contact Icon" until "Edit dock shortcut showed up". Selected "Change Shortcut" then selected "Contact" from the "Shortcut" screen. This asks me to slecect a specific contact but I dont see a phone book in here?

    I am not certain if this is what I should be doing? Even more n00bish is whats the difference betwen "Contact" and "Phone Book" in your post above?

    Thanks!

    Hold the "contact icon" until the "edit dock shortcut" shows up. Select "change shortcut". Select APPLICATIONS from the "shortcut" screen. Select "Contacts" from your app list when it appears.

    No difference between contact and phone book beyond how I referred to it.

    Please does anyone know what icon set this is and how to get it? I like how they are transparent and that they are different from stock icons.

    I already have that pack, and all i have is white icons, not transparent, also i can't seem to find some of those in the icon pack. Maybe i'm not setting something up right?

    That's what I have, and they're transparent on my phone.

    Keep promising myself I'm going to post my screens today, but always find "just one more thing" to tweak before I do. :p

    I used Fancy Widget for about a month, but found that each successive update made it work more poorly. A few days ago I started having problems getting the clock to update appropriately and ditched it for separate clock and weather widgets. One of these days I'll just pay for Beautiful Widget and be done with it!

    @thejtl - You can get that effect by creating a large rectangler .png image of the appropriate size and then use desktop visualiser to create the desired shortcut using the .png file, followed by resizing the icon in launcherpro full version.

    @hotdog - nice one, but did you forget to capitalise the G in Gmail/GMail :p

    interesting pic choices for the categories...or were they chosen at random?

    No pro. Using the 4 x 1. Most likely will upgrade to pro though within the next few days.

    Just some of my favorite movies and 2 bands I really like. Really no correlation to the categories though now that I look at it I'm sure I could draw some. Thanks for the feedback!
