Is it that I am old and my sight isnt so great anymore or some widgets/apps fonts set to size 1 are just too small to read. I ended up editing Gadgetbridge, morphing clock (seconds) and weather widget font sizes so I can see them. I wonder could that be solved with some setting for at least widgets to make them bigger.
Another thing that I change for clock apps is the middle button launcher. I press it accidentally when tilt my wrist all the time. I changed the launcher to BTN3 but then for that app you cant exit menu with BTN3 so I just relaunch.
I wonder what are your thoughts on this and maybe have better solutions.
Yes, the fonts can be a bit small but I think this is the first time I have heard complaints. We could add a global font size setting but I'm not sure how many widget/app developers would actually take that on board (and/or test it!).
How does everyone feel about this?
In terms of the launcher - you could go into settings -> LCD and disable 'wake on BTN2'. That means that BTN2 won't wake the watch so to get to the menu you have to press BTN1/2 and then BTN2?
Thanks Gordon. Global setting might just add complexity and cause problems somewhere else. I am fine with what I am doing now as solution. I thought it might be good idea to rise this topic so developers make the fonts more readable sizes.
For the BTN2 disabling seems nice solution. I wont have to edit apps and having sequence to launch menu makes it child proof as well :)
Ok, great - if there is something like a widget that's simple and the font is too small I'm totally open if you want to just clone it, make the font bigger and do a PR for a 'big font pedometer' or whatever it is...
That sounds good, thanks.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
