Changing fonts for themes

You can change fonts throughout your theme. You can specify a font for dialog boxes, buttons, lists, and the phone and message applications from a one location. You can adjust the base font as necessary or choose a different font for a theme element.

To achieve a consistent look throughout your theme, use fonts from the same font family and make minor adjustments to color and size where appropriate.

There are three types of fonts, each of which is identified by an icon adjacent to the font name in the drop-down list. Different font types have different levels of customization:

Font type Description
BlackBerry® fonts You can change the fill color and, where applicable, the stroke color. You can also specify the style (bold, italic, and anti-alias). The font size for BlackBerry fonts must be in pixels.
TrueType® fonts You can change the fill and, where applicable, the stroke color. You can specify the style (bold, italic, and anti-alias). If bold and italic styles for a font is not available on your computer, the BlackBerry® Theme Builder uses the plain style instead. The font size for TrueType fonts must be in pixels.
XFONT® fonts The amount of customization varies; in some cases, you cannot customize any font settings, in others, you can customize some or all font settings. You cannot adjust the size of XFONT fonts.
