Text size selection is not working

This is probably just a configuration error on my side, but I have no idea where to look in order to fix it:

Using Sailfish on a Jolla 1, the text size selector in the Settings application has no effect. Manually writing to dconf with e.g.

dconf write /desktop/jolla/theme/font/sizeCategory "'huge'"

has no effect. On the other hand,

dconf write /desktop/jolla/theme/font/sizeMultiplier 1.5

does work. I’ve tried disabling all patches, but that didn’t have any effect. What’s going on here?

On my Jolla Tablet, also running, the text size selector works fine.

Just tested and it works fine (from the UI). Maybe you patched something.

Yeah, it seems like the “sizeCategory” setting isn’t being read properly, but I don’t know what I can do about it, or what I did to make it stop working in the first place.

Internal size multiplier takes precedence over size category. Try reseting sizeMultipier:

dconf reset /desktop/jolla/theme/font/sizeMultiplier

Thank you for replying so quickly!
