FAQ: Can I add my own custom icons?

[Archived] – Last Updated:

Yes! In NewsBreak 1.1 and later versions, you can add your own icons. Here’s how:

  • On your Windows PC, make a .bmp (bitmap) file using Paint or any other graphics program. Be sure the file is 16 pixels wide by 16 pixels high (32 x 32 for hi-res VGA devices). The icon should have a white background. Any white pixels in the image will be transparent. You can name your file anything, but don’t use the names of the existing keyword icons.

  • Copy the icon to your \Program Files\NewsBreak\Images folder on your Pocket PC or Smartphone.

  • When you pick Keywords from the Tools or Menu -> Options menu, you’ll see your icon in the list!
