I'm using ADW EX (purchased in the recent 10 billion, 10 day sale). How can I have buttons for next homescreen and previous homescreen on the bottom dockbar like in LauncherPro Plus?

Currently using ADW

I'm not sure that this functionality exists, unfortunately. It does have launcher actions/icons that take you directly to any screen (i.e. if you have 5 screens you can put a "Screen 4" icon somewhere to jump straight to it). – eldarerathis Dec 16 '11 at 18:53
Dang ! Seems a rather basic feature to have, doesn't it? – Sparx Dec 17 '11 at 6:37
Would it be easier to use than swiping? – JRobert Jun 3 '12 at 12:56
Personal preference, I guess. Mustn't be a very "wanted" feature judging by the fact that it's not available in newer launchers like Apex and Nova too. – Sparx Jun 3 '12 at 17:22

I know this question has been asked a while ago, but on the CyanogenMod 7 version of ADW, you have to go in ui settings, then set the dock size to 3 or less and enable "Desktop dots". I think there's similar option on the original version...

What version of CM? CM9 uses trebuchet by default. – Sparx Aug 29 '12 at 17:33
CM7 sorry, forgot to mention it. – Shywim Aug 29 '12 at 20:29
