+ By default, the UI is drawn on the whole screen. This can be changed so that

+
+ \nopt{lcd_non-mono}{\config{ui viewport: X,Y,[width],[height],[font]}}
+ \nopt{lcd_color}{\opt{lcd_non-mono}{

+
+ \opt{HAVE_REMOTE_LCD}{
+ The dimensions of the menu that is displayed on the remote control of your
+ \dap\ can be set in the same way. The line to be added to the theme
+ \fname{.cfg} is the following:\\*
+
+ \nopt{lcd_non-mono}{\config{remote ui viewport: X,Y,[width],[height],[font]}}

+\subsubsection{\label{ref:Viewports}Viewports}
+
+By default, a viewport filling the whole screen contains all the elements
+defined in the \fname(.wps) file. The
+\opt{lcd_non-mono}{elements in this viewport are displayed
+ with the same background/foreground
+ \opt{lcd_color}{colours}\nopt{lcd_color}{shades} and the}
+text is rendered in the
+same font as in the main menu. To change this behaviour a custom viewport can
+be defined. A viewport is a rectangular window on the screen%
+\opt{lcd_non-mono}{ with its own foreground/background
+\opt{lcd_color}{colours}\nopt{lcd_color}{shades}}.
+This window also has variable dimensions. To
+define a viewport a line starting \config{{\%V{\textbar}\dots}} has to be
+present in the \fname{.wps} file. The full syntax will be explained later in
+this section. All elements placed before the
+line defining a viewport are displayed in the default viewport. Elements
+defined after a viewport declaration are drawn within that viewport.
+\opt{lcd_bitmap}{Loading images (see Appendix \reference{ref:wps_images})
+ should be done within the default viewport.}
+A viewport ends either with the end of the file, or with the next viewport
+declaration line. Viewports sharing the same
+coordinates and dimensions cannot be displayed at the same time. Viewports
+cannot be layered \emph{transparently} over one another. Subsequent viewports
+will be drawn over any other viewports already drawn onto that
+area of the screen.

+
+
+\subsubsection{Conditional Viewports}
+
+Any viewport can be displayed either permanently or conditionally.
+Defining a viewport as \config{{\%V{\textbar}\dots}}
+will display it permanently.
+
+\begin{itemize}
+\item {\config{\%Vl{\textbar}'identifier'{\textbar}\dots{\textbar}}}
+This tag preloads a viewport for later display. 'identifier' is a single
+lowercase letter (a-z) and the '\dots' parameters use the same logic as
+the \config{\%V} tag explained above.
+\item {\config{\%Vd'identifier'}} Display the 'identifier' viewport.
+\end{itemize}
+
+Viewports can share identifiers so that you can display multiple viewports
+with one \%Vd line.
