The green triangles in Notes views is a typical Notes thing. Nothing wrong with that… especially for history classes. In 2007, we want to customize these.
Take a look at the picture before and after the twisty makeover:
This is what the notes help says since version 6: “You can customize these icons by importing your own images. You import two images into one graphics file. The first image replaces the “expand” twistie and the second replace the “collapse” twistie. A pair of images for customized twisties should result in a .gif file that is 33 x 16 pixels — that is, two 16 x 16 images, with a 1-pixel divider.”
This is what I say: they’re wrong about the image sizes. I did a lot of experimenting and according to my observations, the image should be 25 x 12 pixels.
So I altered existing plus and minus icons and prepared them for the client. You can download the twisties image here.
After adding it to your image resources, set the Images across property to 2.
Oh, and they work on the web too!
