    iPhone2 font display probs

    Advertisement



    Hey, I'm loving the iPhone theme I got here (thank you!) but I'm having some font display issues. With iPhone2, I can't change the system font (well I can, but the changes don't take effect). With iPhone1, I can get the menu fonts to change, but the dialog box fonts are the problem: the font size is so big, it gets cut off within each button. For example, when I delete an email, I get three buttons on the screen with choices to delete on mailbox, handheld, or cancel; the last letters on these buttons are cut off. I know it's no biggie, but I'm anal and I want it to look perfect.

    Anyone else have this issue? Any way to resolve? Thanks!

    This is by default a "Theme" Problem.

    When downloading a theme for the most part you are stuck with the font size/style the theme builder chooses. Its not like a normal Vendor theme.

    Hi disconnekt,

    Try going back here: http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...ta_themes.html

    and downloading the theme again, i tried to address some of the minor quirks that have been reported since the theme was first released and i hope the latest fixes help? I update the links with newer versions of the theme as of lastnight @ 9pm central time.

    as dfc420 mentioned fonts are a known issue and out of my control.

    thanks

    Thanks srl7741! I downloaded the latest version of iPhone2 and now I can get the menu fonts to change. However, I'm still having the problem of text being cut off in the buttons. However, dfc420 mentioned that the fonts are what the "theme builder chooses"—so as the theme builder, can't you choose a smaller font so it won't get cut off? Perhaps in the next release? Much appreciated!

    Good idea? will post a smaller font version in a minute.


    iPhone with reduced fonts is posted here: http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...tml#post166630

    default font size is 20. The new size is 16.
    Give it a whirl and see if this helps?

    enjoy

    Re: iPhone2 font display probs

    I have a suggestion to this.....

    - What actually happens....

    I haven't pinpointed the actual graphic, but when a theme builder replaces a certain graphic, the graphic corrupts the font tables. This means that when a user loads the font on the device, The default font is bbmillbank 20. The user chooses a different font and when they save... the font is only changed on certain menus and the email screen. If you go to the media manager you will see the old clunky font still in full affect.

    This i say is a major bug in theme builder.

    I believe you will not incur this bug if you edit the default smoothie popup icons ?!... I think the bug exists with the default 8100 theme popup icons... If you use the smoothies, you will not have this bug and when the user changes the font it will change the whole device.

    However in some cases when this happens the theme builder must choose a font for this specific bug. For example... on my Krad-Wii theme i loaded a WII font. The font is crisp and clear but actually exploits this bug to my advantage. Theme builders should choose a default font that best suits there theme in order to avoid huge fonts that break menus and the such...

    have questions.. let me know.

    srl7741, thanks for the new version! The smaller fonts are definitely better system wide, now messages in a list only take up 1 line apiece, and the system menus are better with the smaller font. However, I'm still having the text on the buttons cut off. WTF? Quite an annoying little glitch for an otherwise perfect theme!

    Yes, so am I. "Discard" becomes "Discarc" for example

    Updated post for those still having 8100/Pearl iPhone issues.

    Try once again deleting the current iPhone theme and download and install the latest version.

    iPhone1 ota:

    iPhone1r ota:
    http://www.mobile41.com/8100%20Theme...e_iPhone1r.jad

    I hope everything is ok now.

    However? as always feedback is welcome

    thanks
