Re: theme creator

@marko1108, what doesn't work? What were you trying to do?

 

I have just downloaded the trial version of Photoshop (Photoshop CC 2014). I can open the templates and start editing them following the instructions & export settings on https://developer.sony.com/develop/smartphones-and-tablets/theme-creator/how-to-create-a-theme/.

 

And Theme Creator tool updates the preview of the changed elements automatically when the export is done (assuming that I am in the correct preview screen where the changed element is present).

Re: theme creator

Hi there rytis_ltu and thanks for your question!

 

This problem can have a few causes. I would suggest you read this reply from wmyeo and see if this applies to your problem:

 

...the option "Edit using externel editor" is only available if the tool finds the appropriate/matching image resources (PNG) in the projectroot folder (your theme project folder). The tool knows whether there exists such image resources (PNG) for the resource you want to edit by looking at the file name of the PNG. To get the correct filename of the PNG resource files, you should do the "Save for Web" export of the template containing the resource you want to change by following the instructions on https://developer.sony.com/develop/smartphones-and-tablets/theme-creator/how-to-create-a-theme/.When that export is done, the option "Edit using externel editor" may be selectable.

 

Note: even if you have done a "Save for Web" export for all the templates, it may be possible that the "Edit using externel editor" option is still not enabled for a particular resource, though it is rare as I have only seen it for 1-2 resources where it's just not possible to edit. As this is only the first BETA version of the tool, not all functionality is implemented.

 

The quote was taken from this thread: http://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Q-A-Tips-Help-Troubleshooting/can-t-use-the-external-editing-tools-whe...

 

There is also another detail you want to be aware of and check; If, when you have exported your images with "Save for Web", you get a folder named images, then the naming of the graphic files will be wrong.

 

In this case I would suggest that you try with creating a new Theme Creator project in a clean new folder and follow the How to create a theme guide, and take an extra note on Step C. Export your design from Photoshop.

 

I hope this helps you solving the issues.
