Sounds good. Can we assume that an updated PocketDay Professional with these features is coming?
Thanks!
EDIT: Actually, these are "pdp" files. So this is Pocketday Professional?

As always great work, thanks.

If all possible for the next upgrade, I would like to see translucent colors implemented.

Also, at the top of PDP my date and time says “Fri Jun 23, 2006 ()”. What are the parentheses for and can it be removed?

The () is a bug, we'll take care of that in the next patch. We've been thinking of allowing backgrounds. The native BB background won't show through so we have to have a way to import images to use for backgrounds.

Workin on it...

Disabling “Indent Detail Lines” pushes the view of how many items are in each section (Missed Calls, Unread Email, Tasks and Appointments) to the right

Enabling it moves them closer to the section name.

In addition to, I would like to choose what email address I use to send when I send an email to support via PocketDay – Click Trackwheel – Support. It is choosing to send an email to support using my BES ExchangeMyMail address instead of my personal address. There’s no option to select between what email address I want to use.

Installed. It's very pretty. Good stuff.

I am not having the same problem as above though...I assume you updated the file before I downloaded?

The backgrounds thing is a great idea, as I am now using PD as my home screen. (Got the pro version.)

EDIT: There's one improvement that needs to be made, if possible. PocketDay offers Speed Dial settings, but the BB natively has Speed Dial for the Phone application.

It seems rather pointless having the same feature in two different places. Is it not possible to have PD access the native Speed Dial function?

EDIT #2: Another slight annoyance is that there is no support for acessing old SMS messages under the Zen theme. I can be taken straight to the mail app, but not straight to my SMS's. This forces me to use the home screen, or now disable the Middle Convenience key.

EDIT #3: I've installed this twice now, and both times I've received an annoying "uncaught ... exception" error after selecting to reboot.

Oddly, now that we can choose not to Show Line Between Sections, I can't get it to remember to show them. I have PDP set to exit on escape and when I go back in the the lines have disappeared and the option is unchecked in Settings. It won't stay checked.
I like the new gradient colours.

The space bar does not scroll when viewing messages. The T and B (top and bottom) commands work.

SMS have never been marked as read. This is due to BB limitations. We'll check into the Hide Line setting being saved.

The uncaught exception after a reboot is an issue with the pocketday utility settings. Go into pocketday / settings / utilities, save them. then pop the battery to reboot.

I installed the new version and really like the changes. Only one thing, 4.0 made it so my convenience key opens up a selection box for the user to select a variety of programs. I have the key set to "nothing" in options and wish it to stay that way. I could not find in PD a place to turn this off. Any help would be appreciated.

Email read to be read only seems to be true, and now T and B work HOWEVER space bar or Alt-spacebar to go up and down don't appear to be working. I notice that I can choose the from email, that appear to come from my BES and BIS programed emails from the service books. I will have to test this out since I have my BIS 1.8 set to not show my Cingular address, the choice I get in pocket day is my Cingular address. So I wonder what will show in an email reply. I will have to try it out.
