Themes with adjustable fonts

How can I set up my theme to allow users to adjust the font sizes to me their needs?  I have a theme created but some users are reporting the size for menus and options are too small and they can't be adjusted.

Re: Themes with adjustable fonts

On the BlackBerry, the user can navigate to Options->Screen/Keyboard and set the Font Size. I believe this sets the global font size for most buttons, lists, dialogs and messages.

Re: Themes with adjustable fonts

That works for other themes but does not seem to work for mine which would indicate something is hardcoded in what I created.  I selected font sizes when creating it in Theme Builder rather than using the default sizes in the app.

Re: Themes with adjustable fonts

If you want the users of your theme to have the ability to change the fonts on the theme that you make, you have to leave the font as BB alpha sans under "list".  You can't change it to anything else.  You can change the dialog, menu,etc but you have to leave the list part alone.  That's what I noticed in my trial and error because I was having the same problem.

 

I hope this helps.  Smiley Happy
