Email Display Question on Z10

On my previous Blackberry devices I could change the font and size in my emails. Can anyone put me in the right direction as to how to change this on the Z10.

I don't believe that this can be changed yet, other than by pinch to zoom.. and then there is no reflow.

Re: Email Display Question on Z10

Thanks for the reply, I was hoping to change the font display to make personal and company emails look different. Maybe this will be something will change in the future.

Re: Email Display Question on Z10

The inability to change the base font size for emails is a pain and was reported as a HUGE issue on the very first day of the Jan 30th launch. The email display should also enable a word wrap to keep from having to scroll horizontally endlessly. Makes me nauseous at times.

 

But yes, there's not a place to fix that, and hopefully BlackBerry has listened on that.

Re: Email Display Question on Z10

I poked around in the Hub and email settings and while there ARE quite a few tweaks in there I could not find one for font size.  Sorry!   I like the pinch to zoom suggestion above!  :smileyhappy:

That works. But it just causes more horizontal scrolling. :smileysad:

Re: Email Display Question on Z10

Thanks for the banter guys, i have poked around in the settings in the email settings and was not able to change the font display, i know you can change the size from 8 to 10 or even bigger. This isnt a big deal but since we are testing these devices wanted to try and answer any questions that may come about from any of our users.

Are you looking to change the actual font used when you compose an email, or how they look when they come in to different accounts in the hub?

 

When you are composing an email you can actually format the text (there is an icon under the keyboard, two finger swipe the keyboard or touch and hold the spacebar to get rid of the keyboard .) You can change colour, bold, italics, underline and make the font 'larger' or 'smaller' (looks like the sizes toggle through <p>, <h1>, <h2>, etc with <p> being the 'normal' setting) and format bulleted lists as well.

 

I don't know of anywhere that you can set these as defaults for the entire device, or for each account individually for that matter, but I have to guess (hope) that we will see this in a future update... It should be pretty feasible for BlackBerry to make this happen in the future, and it would be a great feature.

 

As for differentiating between accounts in the hub with different font sizes / colours that is also not available at this time, but I belive has been requested in many threads here on this forum.

 

Hope that helps to clear up what you were looking for...
