    How to work Minimalistic Text App?

    ok, so i'm trying to get battery, date, clock widget in minimalistic, blah blah blah. i'm trying to get the battery widget but it looks like
    {1020304050..}, but the numbers are sideways in the vertical option. i want to get it like
    {10
    20
    30
    40
    50...},
    but i don't know how to get it set up the way i like. can everyone give a tutorial or something?

    thanks in advance

    Nevermind lol, I guess I didn't read your whole post. I'll mess around with it and if I figure it out I'll let ya know.

    **Edit: I don't think it's possible with Minimalistic Text because it won't let you make the widget take up enough grid squares on the homescreen.

    I'd like to point out that this is false... You can go into the Minimalistic Text Widget preferences and change the direction of the widget. The way he is wanting is with the Widget Direction setting to be left-right. This will make it appear like this:

    0
    10
    20
    30
    40
    50
    60
    70
    80
    90
    100

    I also have my Day of the Week bar set up this way.

    Since we are on this subject.... Does anyone know how to get the numbers to "Glow" like they do in the picture below? I have the "Forest" background that shows the weather/temp outside if you tap it, etc, and the Droid Bionic's color scheme is more of a dark blue, but I want like an "electric" blue for the pieces I want emphasized. Anyone have any insight on this?

    Hi JT...

    By glow do you mean colors surrounding the words? Like how i have Wednesday?

    If so, go to the desired text style, select a blur radius (bigger radius = more glow), and then choose "outer"...

    "Inner" dims the inside of the words (like i have the other text.)

    Kind of. I was messing with it last night and got the "glow" that I was looking for. I ended up using a solid blur style with a pixel radius of 8 - it came out to be exactly what I wanted :-)

    I realize this thread is old, but I have to ask... what icons are those on your home screen?
