#Manual

Since this is designed to be used principally on a handheld devices without a window manager, the controls are aimed at d-pad centric. The pattern here is using the B button to handle all window operations, and leave the A button to the applications. Alternatively, you can open a file with mouse2.

  • B+Up, expand a window
  • B+Down, tab a window
  • B+Right, open a window
  • B+Left, close a window

#Editing the theme

Saving the theme, from the tile or theme editor will create a hidden file called .theme, which can be opened and edited in Nasu.

#Adding a wallpaper

The wallpaper is an invisible file called .wallpaper in the working directory, the file is a 1bpp icn of the size of the desktop. The wallpaper image can be created with Noodle.

  • Hex Viewer.
  • .wallpaper should open as Picture.
