    I am unable to change shortcuts icon on my screen using better cut. I am using Launcher pro for my home application. I know it's pretty vague, but hopefully I can narrow this problem down soon.

    Desktop Visualizer is better than Bettercut imo and works with LP.

    Tried adw, still running into the same problem. Gonna try the free Desktop Visualizer and see what that's about. Thanks for both suggestions thus far though.

    Suggested ADW as it has this built in. Pick up an icon on the desktop and drop it, and then tap the icon. Choose what you want to use from there.

    Why the heck did I pay for better cut then? Ugh it use to work just fine. Ah well. I like desktop visualizer but they don't have much icon packs to select from. Not bad though. Still open to other options as well.

    Folder Organizer works great for changing Icons on Launcher Pro. I use it all the time.

    Would I be able to use the Icon from better cut? I just want the glass orb theme.

    Yes. You can use any Icon Pack you can find as long as they are .png's .

    I bought the full version, but I can not for the life of me remember why. I probably did it to get rid of the ads and to support the dev as I really like this app. Here's what I found about the two versions:

    Folder Organizer lite

    Ad-supported version
    Folder Organizer

    Full version with advanced features:
    – hierarchical labels
    – direct folder editing
    – manual sort of items in a label
    – widgets with 5 items in a row

    Wait, why wouldn't you just use the functionality built into LauncherPro itself to change the icon?

    Longpress on homescreen > choose Shortcut > Applications > choose Application > Tap the picture to change the Icon.
