DESIGNATING BUBBLES TO ARCHIVE CLOUDS

  • By paginating the archive we practically created multiple archive clouds!
  • As a consequence, you might want to be able to set which of these archive clouds should each of the bubbles go into
  • The bubble size lets you control this

CODES AT THE BOTTOM

They describe 3 clouds:

  • [5:1+4:11] → 1 size5 and 11 size4 bubbles go in the first cloud (the one bubble in size 5 will appear as the large center bubble)
  • [3:1+2:11] → 1 size3 and 11 size2 bubbles go in the second
  • [1:10] → 10 size1 bubbles go in the third cloud
  • /12 → the maximum number of bubbles in each cloud is 12 ~ cloud limit (controlled using the variance slider on top)

NOTES

  • if there were multiple size5 or size3 bubbles, the one earlier in the alphabet would appear as the center icon
  • the Galaxy layout (3) allows more size variations and multiple center bubbles
  • the Grid layout (2) uses uniform bubble sizes
  •  use the “variance” slider to control the bubble sizes in the Corners layout (4)
  • if the option “Merge smaller clouds” is enabled multiple bubble sizes are combined in the same archive cloud as long as they fit (if their sum exceeds the cloud limit they will go into separate clouds)
  • if the number of bubbles of a single size exceed the cloud limit (determined by the size variance), they will be split into multiple clouds
  • Galaxy (3) and Corners (4) layouts don’t have the “merge smaller clouds” option, they will always merge bubbles with weight difference of 1. But will not merge if the difference is more than 1. So if you set the first bubble to size 9 and the second to size 7 and the third to size 5 they will go into different pages

ALPHABETICAL BUBBLE ORDER

  • Option is not available for the layouts with variable bubble sizes (would not make sense)
  • For paginated archive layouts the cloud number has precedence over alphabetic order → each cloud will be sorted alphabetically unless you set the same bubble size for all bubbles in the archive (Hint: use “reset sizes” button in Settings screen on the watch)
  • When long press to move is disabled: long pressing a bubble will show its name
