Larger Icon Support

KewlKat007 I was wondering if there will ever be support for greater than 16bits for icons.

I downloaded a pretty cool program called Icon Constructor 2.  You can import jpg, bmp, etc files, use predesigned styles form the program and such.  The predesigned styles are really cool, however, they can't be used with Activ E-Book Compiler because you have to set the settings to not support 256 and/or XP incons.  You have to set it to support "only" 16-bit icons.

When you do such, you can't have the cool style effects.  If Activ could ever support larger icon formats, that would be awesome.

Storyman Not sure if this is what you are after. It's a 24 Bit toolbar for Activ.

KewlKat007 Thanks for the links, however, that tool only changes the incons for the toolbar of e-books.  What I am speaking of is the icon for the e-book itself.  For example, by default, the icon for an e-book is currently the image of a red book.

Zebulon There's a little Icon maker in the new version 5.  But the Compiler is to make and to compile ebooks to sell, not to make Icons.

I do all my Icons with Corel PhotoPaint and bring them to the Version 5 little tool to convert and saves them anywhere I want...  it's a snap!

Zebicon ;o)
