Display name in contact list not fully displayed

I own BB Z10 and Z30. After the upgrade to 10.2.1.2102, I find the names in contact list are not fully displayed when font size 18 is used. However, when font size 14 is used, the names are displayed in full. It is worst in BB Z10. I believe this is a software flaw. Would appreciate if anyone can explain how to overcome this problem. Thank you.

Re: Display name in contact list not fully displayed

On either device, at 18 pt size, does it make a difference if if you have a short name, "John Day" as opposed to a long name like "Longfirstname Longlastname"?

Whether the name is short or long, yet it is not displayed in full at 18 pt size.

Just out of curiosity, what happens if you change that to 14 or 12 pt?


Could you try and see?

Re: Display name in contact list not fully displayed

Thank you for your reply. There is no problem when I use 12 or 14 pt. In fact, tthis problem arose after I updated to the latest software. I strongly believe this problem is due to the latest software.

 

Thank you.

Re: Display name in contact list not fully displayed

Are you, like I was 4-5 years ago, fighting the need to use a proper set of reading of glasses?

Re: Display name in contact list not fully displayed

Yes, I need reading glasses if the fonts are small, which I dislike to use. By the way, if the problem cannot be resolved for whatever reasons, which is probably due to the recent software update, I will have to think of other alternatives. Thank you.

i have tweeted this post to @MichaelClewley in hopes he will look at it

 

18 pt shows it chopped on bottom in landscape or portrait and in portrait word wrap would be nice to see full name

Re: Display name in contact list not fully displayed

It would be better to say good bye to BB rather than getting glasses, as the experts who created this flaw, are unable to resolve it.
