(see attached) I'm trying like hell to break up a picture between the tabs on the dialer and the text area. But I'm guessing the xml file is shrinking the pictures in the tabs so they no longer fit together. They should (what I''d like to see) fit almost seamlessly together appearing to only have a slight gray overlay on the tabs that aren't selected. I even took the png files that are the tab_selected and tab_unselected and made them totally clear. But the gray and near black tabs are still there around the images I want. Any help here? I appreciate it. I think the screenshot will show what I'm shooting for.
