Large folder text issue

Since the last update of Xperia software on my Z3 compact i have uncovered a bug that i can reproduce. If i take a photo with the screen locked by holding down the camera button, when i unlock my phone all the text on my home screen folders go larger than normal and i have to hold the folder with a long finger press as if i'm going to move it then cancel the action to resolve and put the text back to normal size. Not a big deal but an annoyance more than anything.

Re: Large folder text issue

Hi @Mdstone, so sorry to hear that. Slightly frowning Face

I tried replicating it using an Xperia Z3 Compact and I was not able to do so while following your steps. What I did was I set a screen lock (PIN), then locked the device and used the Camera Quick start (camera button), snapped a photo and then pressed the home button and unlocked the device. The Home screen folder text was left unchanged. Did I follow the correct steps in order to recreate the behaviour?

Just to make sure, are you using the pre-installed Xperia Home launcher? If so, could you try clearing data for the app under Settings > Apps > Menu (3 dots in the top right) > Show system > Xperia Home > Storage > Clear data? This will unfortunately reset the layout that you've set on your Home screen and other settings you've set for it, but it may help in preventing the behaviour you're experiencing.

Let me know how it went! Slightly smiling Face

Re: Font size on homescreen becomes bigger.

Follow this procedure. I managed to do it 3 times in a row but it doesn't do it every time. I have a pattern unlock if this makes any difference?

With phone in sleep wake by holding down camera button and take a photo.

Press Home button on screen then unlock from pattern swipe.

Folder text is now larger than normal

Re: Font size on homescreen becomes bigger.

I have this bug, and its so annoying. Every time I use the dedicated camera button the font and icons are a mess. Can someone at Sony please give a clear answer as to when this issue will have a fix. Thanks

Home screen font changing

When I start camera from lock screen or when screen is of and when I shot some pictures or use camera in any way and then turn off my screen for a few minutes and when I turn on screen and unlock my phone homescreen font becomes large but everything else is ok.. This is weird bug and I expect a fix on later software updates..

Problem with increasing font size

The problem is that if the camera is opened on the locked device, then after unlocking the device, the font on the desktop grows, and the device reboots to a reduced font
