If multiple elements appear to be identical, the packer is to recognize it, the picture will then be recorded in a single copy. Packer does not make any image transformation (dithering, etc.), you need to prepare images in finished form.
Fonts - any TTF fonts (note that all of the fonts of the current topics are held in memory in unpacked form, so invest in a theme Arial Unicode MS - not a good idea The name of the font file can be substituted as a face in the elements FONT.

Features of e-ink display

To make sure your theme looked nice and work fast, you need to take into account some features of technology e-ink.
E-ink display uses three update modes: full, partial and partial black and white. In most cases (for example, page flipping) using the full update - with black shading. This is the slowest method. To speed up the response of menu items and lists using partial update. However, if there is a change only black and white pixels (even if the region contains updates immutable gray), used a monochrome update, but it is about 4 times faster than usual. Therefore, for items that require quick response, it is desirable to use the fonts without antialiasing, and all the images to calculate such a way that the selection changed only black and white.
Partial update on the screen are the traces of previous images, especially noticeable in gray areas. It also features technology to get rid of it programmatically impossible.

Creating pbt-File

As an example, we have recorded the theme default unpacked (catalog example). You can try to change it as you wish, and then burn to PocketBook folder / system / themes and see what happened. Configuration theme is in the file mytheme.txt, resources - in a folder resource. To create pbt file, simply run the script create.bat.
The new version PocketThemes added viewer in order - you can immediately see how looks the topic started. Overview is an abridged emulator PocketBook 301 (only function bookshelf). Folders ext1 and ext2 subdirectory system \ mnt viewer perceives respectively as internal memory and SD card - here you can copy the books and see how the list will look in the bookshelf.
The archives are source of all three standard themes.
If you make a mistake in any setting, and PocketBook not loaded with the selected topic or shows something totally unimaginable, you can always boot in safe mode. To do this, when you turn on hold "-" before the bookshelf.
Good luck!
