so i just got a message on twitter from @mybelovedpiglet telling me about the font PhoneKeyCaps.ttf which is used to render the text on the keyboard. i wasn’t aware of this until now. this immensely simplifies customizing the keyboard font for the iPhone and the iPod Touch. earlier it used to involve creating and modifying loads of images used for the keyboard. and i also got numerous emails about my keyboard themes not working right with WinterBoard on 3.0. i think these problems can be fixed now.
this new discovery gives me reason to prepare and release the next version of FontSwap which will happen later this week.
please ignore the backspace button for now. i just had to try a quick port and test, so did not really care about it. custom font authors will need to take care of this as this font has different glyphs from the usual system font so just a font rename is not going to work.
