Apologies if this is not the right place for this question, but I figured that there are people round here who may have the experience to answer it.
I’m considering creating or editing a WD TV SMP theme of my own - probably by tweaking an existing moviesheet at first. So I’ve downloaded and installed Thumbgen Designer and can now see how the movie sheets are assembled and how the XML works. I’ve also been able to copy components from one theme to another using Thumbgen Designer :-).
The problem I’m having is that I can’t seem to work out how to create a new ‘XML component’ directly in the Designer other than by copying an existing instance or opening up the raw XML, find something that is similar, duplicate it and then edit the source item it refers to - which seem to defeat the objective of the GUI editor.
So for instance a film’s Release date is represented through a text field and in the Template.XML I changed the date from ‘DD-MM-YYYY’ format to just the YYYY. I also edited the ‘fixed text’ that prceedes the movie’s year. I was hoping that fields could be edited through some kind of ‘Left-click select, right-click properties’ action to reveal the underlying code that could then be amended.
Any pointers or clues?
