    A few questions.
    After upgrading to version 2.20 and recompiling application, RichStringFormatter doesn't work. The code hasn't changed but the strings in the widget lost formatting - tokens are displayed as strings.

    Is there any way to go back to old menu style - the menu displayed only when menu button is pressed and not having menu items displayed on actionbar?

    Can you post your code?

    You can remove android:targetSdkVersion="14" from the manifest editor.

    Hi Erel,
    I found the problem. It wasn't the new version of b4Android. It was B4ACoder that inserted spaces in the tags.

    I wanted to keep SdkVersion 14 as I used with version 2.02 of B4Android.
    For me, since I have Galaxy S3 which has a dedicated hardware button for menu, this is the best option to have menu items activated by Menu button and only display them when I want to use them. Especially, that I have more than 3 item on the Menu. So three items appear in the action bar and the rest still is activated by the menu.

    The previous behavior was not really good as devices without a hard menu button didn't show any soft button and therefore the items were not accessible.

    The menu items handling will be improved to allow you to choose which items can show in the action bar directly.
