Hi, all ... quick query; been searching all over the net with all kinds of keywords. Can't find it. Apologies to mods if this is the wrong forum, but I'm working with Blade V stock firmware, with no custom roms to install.
I've edited my Generic.kl on my Blade V so that the hardware menu key becomes an APP_SWITCH. This works just fine, as expected. But I thought that if there wasn't a hardware menu key, then the action overflow button (three-dot menu key) would appear automatically in the various apps' icon bars (vanilla nexus 4 style). This hasn't happened.
I can make the three dot menu happen if I add "qemu.hw.mainkeys=0" to build.prop, so that the software navigation keys are available. But that just eats up screen space and makes the hardware keys redundant.
When I've tried to google how to force the three-dots, there is loads of information for app programmers. But nothing I can find tells users how to edit a settings file to force the dots. The only method I've seen is that, in Cyanogenmod, there's a setting in the system settings. I'm very happy to tinker with text files if someone would tell me what that setting actually changes under the hood!
