    Smaller fonts...

    Advertisement



    I've been doing a lot of research about installing new fonts on a BB, and the consensus seems to be that it's almost impossible. I've been wondering about smaller fonts though. For example, the BB Browser has an option for size 6, whereas the device itself only allows size 7. I personally use BB Casual size 7 and I find that it just isn't small enough. I like to have as much text on screen as possible, so I'm wondering if there's any way to decrease font size beyond usual standards on my BB Curve.

    Thanks,

    ok, here's what you do ;-)

    1. go into "screen/keyboard" otions
    2. select the "system" font and save.
    3. go back into screen/keyboard and select the font you want.
    4. enable font smoothing.
    5. save settings

    Yay, smalller fonts!

    I can't really tell if I got smaller fonts or my eyes just deceived me. Hmm.

    No way, they got smaller on my 8300 using the above method. Thanks.

    Hmm, worked for me too, thats weird. You can create a new theme, leave it all default, and just change the font size there, you can choose all the way to 0 font size.

    wow... this is really a very handy "BUG".
    The fonts really do seem to have gotten smaller (though it still says size 7). I use the BBMillBank Tall font set to size 7.
