Tab Font Size in Mobile View (Intended Increase?)

The font size on the tabs in a dashboard view (mobile only) have jumped about 8 points in size today. There is no change in font size in desktop view. It looks awkwardly big and I was wondering if this was a planned change across the whole platform or just a weird anomaly on my app.

I have a tabbed view as well but do not see the issue you are. It looks like yours is in the Main view. My view is reached by Editing so that could be the difference between us.

Yes. This is from a dashboard build, setting “use tabs in mobile view”. Just jumped to a much larger size overnight.

AppSheet is rolling out UX changes (you’ve probably noticed the side Menu has changed). You might switch this to a bug or send a message to support@appsheet.com to get this in front of them as they roll out updates.

Hi @Scott_Hall The views names have been CAPITALISED as well which makes them even larger. Hopefully it is just a temporary glitch. Also i just noticed the selected view does not hight light, and the first view remains highlighted.

@Lynn @WillowMobileSystems Thank you. This was moved to bugs/ issues. I hope this isn’t intended. Looks bad.

I just re-read your message on how you got the tabs and realized I have a Dashboard view I can try that in and sure enough when I turn on the tabs property I get the same large capitalized font in the tabs

I’m certain this is NOT Intended! :slight_smile:

Unfortunately no change on my app. Still wrong.

I had to refresh my browser and reload the app if that’s any use to you ?

No, tried that. Refreshed. Then logged out and back in. Don’t think uninstalling/ reinstalling the app would help.

Are you Apple or Android? @Lynn

Android and laptop

Sorry i just checked on my phone again and it is same as it was before with the big font and incorrect highlights so I dont know what’s going on ??

I received an email from support on Friday last week saying a fix would be out on Monday. It’ll come eventually I guess.

We did roll out the fix on Monday and your local App definition should have been updated as a result.
You can force a refresh of the Mobile app definition now by uninstalling and reinstalling, but it is a bit brute force. Though it will guarantee you are running the latest version of the app though.

@TDhers So here is a screen shot from my android phone. I did uninstall and reinstall appsheet. If this is the intended result then great. Not my favorite but I’ll get used to it. If not… Let me know. Thanks.

HI @Scott_Hall I had to do the same and reinstall and it is now as you have shown .

Thank you Scott and Lynn,
It seems that the font size is back to normal, but you are probably reacting to the capitalization of the view name which is due to the new library we are using for the new redesign view and forms. So it is indeed intentional design.
It is the consistent most common design for TILE style views on mobile devices.

Please, it is not possible to reducce de font size while maintaining the capitalization of the views? It’s just too big and it doesn’t look mobile friendly at all. This is not something i will get used to.
