#1
Hi. i can't send sms right now..the app is too far right outside of the screen, how can i fix it quick? Need to send a text! thanks!

How do i fix popups, buttons that are outside of the screen sometimes? I love the phone.. But i need to come up with a universal solution to this. An universal solution so all apps fit the phone screen maybe? Thanks

i searched:

What's the scale-to-fit???

5 of 5 Points, fully optimized ? I would say 4 out of 5? Because of the scale..
Edit: I fixed not seeing the button with unlocking the screen rotation and rotating the picture.

I experienced this issue as well with yesterday install of 20210517 image. All I had to do was update & dist-upgrade and problem disappeared. Sometimes I see some hiccups in scaling but all can be solved by rotating to wide and back.

Scale-to-fit is fix for apps not optimized for mobile screen, for example Evolution (You still need it to import contacts). It is simple command you run in terminal and app tries to fit PinePhone screen (not successfull everytime, but it works somehow). However I had to use it only for contacts import. From then no need to do scale-to-fit for me.

Ok, thanks for the answer.. yeah. It's small issues.. Overall everything works good in my opinion. It's a working phone. It should be more beefy in the future though when it comes to capacity/specs.. Other then that.. Sweet phone!
