So for context… I first started this watch face in Galaxy Watch Studio… then I resumed working on that .gwd file in Watch Face Studio. I am trying to finish up this watch face, but now when I try to add complications they wont appear on the mini-Run area where you can Open Run Window to see. I am able to add and instantly see any of these components (non-complication): text, image, shape, progress bar, animation, multimedia, analog hands, index, digitcal clock, BUT none of the complications are visible when added. Is there something dumb I am not catching? The complication I am adding are moved forward and not hidden or obstructed
ALSOOOO would anyone know the app ID for the built in stopwatch on GW5?
You can’t use a .gwd file in Watch Face Studio. do you mean you imported the resources from a .gwd file?
They only import resources no GWD complications are imported. Watch Face Studio complications are a totally different thing than GWS has for complications. You can’t import them. If I misunderstood please provide more information maybe a screen shot.
using of App IDs is allowed but the app may not be available on every brand so I only recommend using that for personal use. Instead you should use a Long Text complication and App Shortcut for the default Provider.
but if you want you for App ID’s try running simple adb commands
adb connect 192.168.xxx.xxx:5555 (your watch IP address & enable debugging)
pm list packages
You will get an output list like this
There is no import complications from Galaxy Watch Studio to Watch Face Studio
Are you saying a complication like Long Text doesn’t show up in the run window that may be because you don’t have a default provider. or didn’t fill in any of the exemplar text boxes so there is nothing to show. That is what the end user would see.
Yes, after importing gwd resource and using GWS to add a new complication, all the complication types I try adding do not appear. I don’t know what a default provider means :\ can you explain that more? I tried adding text and icons to all the complication types and none of them appear visible over the gwd resource
Correct the icon and text boxes for the complications are just so you can see in the build Window what it would look like for placement. They will not be used on the actual watch. However, fonts and colors should be used.
A Wear OS app may also have a complication for the watch face but not all apps do.
