Title: Save text size per layout and/or device
Post by: chadcb on September 22, 2018, 08:09:43 AM
Hello,

I couldn't find the answer to this by searching. I have an iPhone and an iPad, each using a different custom layout. When I resize the text to work well on the iPhone (pinch/zoom), it also changes it on the iPad. And when I fix it on the iPad, the iPhoned is changed again. Is there a way to preset these specific settings from syncing? I tried setting text size and chord size to local sync only. No luck. Is this possible?

Thanks!

No, the text size is supposed to scale to different screen sizes (technically, document viewer sizes) so that lines will wrap consistently on each device. If you have a phone and a tablet, it would be better to think of each playing a different role -- the phone for quick updates on the go and maybe for personal practice, and the tablet for viewing from a distance during rehearsal or performance -- rather than trying to use them interchangeably for the same situations.

Thanks. Not sure if if it’s my devices. I have an old iPad stuck on legacy iOS. And new iPhone. If it scaled  accordingly then that would solve my problem. It doesn’t appear to be doing that. I can post screen shots later if that helps. Thanks again.

Sure, you can post screen shots to make sure it's working as intended.

I decided to get a new iPad. As soon as I have things setup, I'll revisit this and report back. Thanks again.

Option to save text size percentage per layout & device?  Maybe that would work.
I would prefer smaller than 'standard' on my iPad, for example
