Acquisition?

I kept reading to make sure it wasn't a clever pun.

I think the tiny letters on CB10 Q10 app are due to the size of the image on the post. I think the phone tries to display the whole image and results in tiny text that is unreadable on Q10.

Pretty small on Z10 too. I skipped reading it.

Makes sense... at landscape mode the font size is still small, but much better readable (Z10)

I made the image smaller, did that help?

Bran Winterfell

Yes, it's now much better for me :-)

Yes! Thank you! I held off on installing the CB app on my old BBOS phones because I thought it was crap, and now this buffoonery for BB10. The websites, both desktop and mobile, look fantastic and I know the app will be fixed someday...but c'mon...CB is getting as bad as BBRY itself when it comes to keeping up with the times and fixing stuff...Android and iPhone come first just like the consumer base no doubt. It's driven to me to actually register to post, after quietly lurking over the past 9 or 10 years... Rant off... I'll go back to being quiet...

Yes!
That fixed it. I feel accomplished lol.
I have contributed to humanity ahahha.

That pixel size needs to be passed on to CB10 devs, so they can adjust for the app ( via user agent check).

Bug fixed! Now we know what's causing it.

"No Q10?" -> "Buy from Chen... "

Agreed. Once again, unreadably tiny text in CB10. But pretty picture...

Could you use a smaller font please? I can almost read what you've written.

I know you guys are frustrated by the text size, but it's not something intentional. I have no control over it. Hopefully Adam can figure it out :)

Ragbert

But it's only your articles which have this problem, Rene, sorry to say. So it must be a function of your blogging software - are there no font-size or screen resolution settings in it?

We figured out the problem. I was including the HiDPI image in the posts. When I switched to standard def, it was fine. That's a quirk of CB. I'll let everyone know so they can fix it.

Sorry again, glad we figured it out!

jope28

We rock.
