First, consider Icon Manager v4.01 (that comes with the latest, at this time 4.00.80 release)
So far I found 2 places with some brief documentation for Icon Manager.
- Pathaway manual
( found here : http://www.pathaway.com/manualindexpalm.htm - get the PathAway GPS 4 - User Manual )
- Icon Manager program - from the menu select Help->Help (F1)
-->Pathaway GPS 4 - User Manual (PDF) page 90 (last) :
Create your own icon using an application such as Windows Paint. Create an image no larger than 24 pixels wide by 14
pixels high. The average is 11x11. Save the file as a .BMP, or Jpeg.
-->Icon Manager - Help menu :
Icons should be less then 32x32 pixels. For best results, use an image editor - such as Paint - to re-size your bitmaps before importing them into this application.
First, they don't match. Second ... both are wrong.
Real maximum size : 16x16 based on trial and error testing.
Icon Manager will import smaller images with their real dimmensions.
Icon Manager will resize larger images to fit 16x16, keeping aspect ratio.
Image size as recommended by help menu (32x32) will result in a 16x16 icon
Image size as recommended by Pathaway GPS 4 User Manual (24x14) will result in a 16x9 icon
A size 11x11 as recommended in the Pathaway GPS 4 User Manual is good, because larger icons (vertically) won't be displayed properly on the device.
However, I found that (at least on Palm OS 5.x) the actual maximum size that is visible in the menus is 12x11 before clipping occurs.
