Snom 370 firmware 8.7.5.35 giant font

The font size for the Snom 370 is very big on the idle screen. Would a possible firmware provide an option to change it back to the single line size? Also some of the animations and other in call information is less verbose from what it was before (8.4.35).

 Sorry for not mention thoses changes in the change_Log_V8_7_5!


But we have already a Feature Request (internal tracking ID: SCPP-1471) for customizing the font.
Unfortunately for the time beeing I don't know when this will be implemented.
l am going to add your forum post as another client requesting the feature.

thanks


snom370-8.7.3.25.9-SIP-f.bin is still having the smaller font size.

 

The http://wiki.snom.com/Firmware/V8/Release_Notes/Change_Log_V8_7_4 doesn't list any related PUI change nor change in "font" or "size". Neither does http://wiki.snom.com/Firmware/V8/Release_Notes/Change_Log_V8_7_5.

What makes Snom decide to note most minor changes in the release notes and "forget" about this major change?

Hi @all, an update regarding the request and status of ref-ID: SCPP-1471:

The apparent "font-size" change you seem to observe by upgrading to FW 8.7.4.x or 8.7.5.x, esp. on Snom 360 & 370 is not just a bigger font.

In fact its a consequence of a major architecture change, that introduced the so called joined call screen. The joined call screen was intended to unify the UI across all Snom phone models. Before each model had its specific UI. On 360 & 370 it led, beside other effect to an apparent bigger "font-size" and less identities to be shown in idle screen.

Please note:

I) on both FW branches and especially the mentioned models, the joined call screen incl. its UI design changing effects will be kept. This major change is a longstanding legacy that will not be changed!
II) to get back the 8.7.3.x (and before) UI please downgrade to 8.7.3.x or older FW with the help of our FW archive: http://wiki.snom.com/Firmware/V8/Download
III) an option to upload a font exists as documented in our Wiki: http://wiki.snom.com/Settings/upload_font but with described limitation regarding model and scope.

The internal reference ID: SCPP-1471 is completed with III) and there are no plans to any extensions.

Snom 370 FW support, maintenance mode only, will continue on 8.7.5.x but not higher, as for all 3xx models (except 360, due to EoL) the 8xx models (except 820, due to EoL) and Snom MeetingPoint and PA1.

An upcoming new FW 8.9.3.x will bring (besider others) a lot of new functionality and improvements in the given context:


Can already be reviewed / tested with 8.9.3.x release candidate in preparation (change-history pending) under: http://wiki.snom.com/Firmware/V8_9_3_59_102


Suggestion for Snom 360 & 370 users: please consider replacing it with an Snom D375: https://www.snom.com/ip-phones/desk-phones/300-series/


Thank you for your comprehension and cooperation!
