Hy there

I wasn't sure where to put this but seeing as I've only been on Mac for about 2-3 months now i thought I'd stick it in here

Im in the process of customizing my powerbook with themes and cursors and in particular ICONS!

I've got shapeshifter (not paid yet) and i downloaded the XiDG_Al book theme. Really tasty theme!

Ive replaced the main theme, the cursors, the desktop and all my system level icons.

However i don't know how to change my app. icons. Not only in finder but on the dock as well (i like it when things match )

What I want to know is how do i change these icons?

The theme set has abunch of icons for pretty much every app i have but they dont open in shapeshifter.

Any ideas?

Thanking you all in advance

Its ok I figured it out.

_You select the icon you want to implement
_You go to File ... Get info
_Click on icon img
_Go to Edit ... Copy
_Select icon to be changed
_Go to file ... Get info
_Click on icon img
_Got to Edit ... Paste


Hope this helps anyone with the same problem

If this is just old news someone please delete this thread
