Default Newbie question about a theme

Please Login to Remove!

I just picked up my 8330 Curve yesterday and have been messing around with customizing the Home screen to my liking. I'm impressed with the customization options so far but I do need a bit of help. I downloaded and start using the Dock Bottom Zen theme because I really like the layout, but I was wondering if it is possible to switch which icons it displays on the bottom of the screen? I'm not trying to change where they are on the screen, just which applications I can access from the Home screen. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Press the menu key (BB button), this will show you all of your icons. Move the ones you want on your home screen to the top.

Thanks for the help. Unfortunately, I tried doing that and no matter how I arrange my top row of icons it doesn't change the layout of the home screen at all. I suppose this means you cant change the icons on your home screen at all for this theme? Like I said, I'm new to all this so pardon my newbness

It would seem therefore that the theme you downloaded does not have customizable icons.
Find another theme, or deal with having those icons on the screen

Also, read any notes on the theme before installing. Many will tell you if you can customize the home screen icons or not.

My experience with the preloaded themes is that you can change the order of the icons but not where the rows of icons appear on the screen.
