    UPDATE

    Created a patch thanks to Jason Robitaille and new Theme Builder 2.0.

    This patch increases the size of the font for messaging.

    Currently it is a static change to 36px It does not increase the text you type until you send it.

    Thayiti

    Use WebOs Quick install to install the Patch.



    I love my pre but find it so hard to read the sms. Being a person of limited vision I would love to be able to increase the font size for messaging and other areas.

    Anyone able to help with creating an app for this? Or give a little guidance to someone new at dev webos apps.

    I have the same problem as you. The font is too small for me to read without pulling out my reading glasses everytime. I would love to know if it's possible to increase the font.

    Easily possible actually. I could only give root directions, but someone would have to make a patch from it.

    What part are you looking to increase the font to?


    If I helped you or you have downloaded one of my files,
    then least you could do is click the "Thanks" button.

    I myself think the font on messaging bigger would rock.

    eventually i would like to change defualt system font up or down. like contacts icon text.

    I can root to my pre no problem. would love to have a patch but will work in root to get messanging bigger now.

    With Webos 1.2.0 out cool to see so many working so hard on everything.

    Size is exactly what i should have conveyed.

    Anyone reading offer any suggestions/walk trough to help with a fix? Would really like to be able to read my texts on my pre.

    Not sure if this is helpful - but check out the below Thread in the webos development section. I have the same problem seeing the smaller type items and would love to be able to adjust font size in the various applications - text and email specifically.

    First of all thanks alot for this patch.

    but does this works with 1.3.1? also any plans for adding to preware?

    What font size do you require for messaging?, i could rustle one up which would work on 1.3.1.
