If not, you could check if the same occurs in safe mode.

Big letters under icons after using quick camera

Hi

I have an issue with letters under icons (ex. Icon and name of the app under it) on the screen, after i use the button for taking a quick photo when the screen is locked. I mean - i have locked phone, i want to take a picture so i press the camera button for 2sec. and then phone swithes to camera (still is locked) i take a picture and then stop using phone. After i reuse phone (unlock it) i see big names of apps under icons instead of normal. I need to hold the main screen and then go to its settings and repush the "small icons" option. Any ideas?

Yes, it happens also in safe mode. I remember that it wasnt before becouse in the end of August i was on holiday and took a lot of pictures using the camera button to unlock phone for taking a picture and i didnt notice it at that time. It has to came with one od maintaince update.

Re: Big letters under icons after using quick camera

i can't seem to replicate the problem, have you tried changing themes? or using another Icon packs?

 

if it wont be too much of an inconvenience you can try to perform software repair using Xperia Companion

Re: Big letters under icons after using quick camera

Tried both (theme, icons) doesnt work. Ive noticed that all i need is to hold finger on screen that it goes into personalisation (witgets, themes, settings, etc) and cancel it to go to normal main screen. Then the descriptions under icons goes normal. The fixed icons on bottom of main screen (which doesnt slide) they dont change size of descriptions they are normal all the time. Only those on sliding main screen.

I will try companion mode if it doesnt hurt my personal data on the phone (mails, sms etc).

Hi @Nuttie, it seems your post was merged with this topic.

 

We are aware of this and it will be fixed in an upcoming version of Xperia Home. Slightly smiling Face

Font on homescreen changes

Since the last update the fonts under the apps on the homescreen is changing from small to big and I have no idea why. When I try to change the font from small to big and from big to small it is okay again but sometimes I have to restart the phone to get to the normal font size. It annoys me because it happens again and again, no matter how often I restart and I don't know why it happens and how to get rid of it

Home Icons & Text Size Bug on Marshmallow

Ive just received a recent replacement handset from Sony with latest Mm software. Version. 291 I think.

Every time I use the dedicated camera button to launch the camera my home page font / text changes size, it gets much larger.

It's a pain in the rear. Is it just my phone or is this a common bug? Any ideas on solving?

Thanks

Re: Home Icons & Text Size Bug on Marshmallow

There's a solution for this. Wait until one of the other long time users can tell you the thread link. I can't remember where it is. Try doing a search for it on the board.
