I rely on Pocket, a service and app from Mozilla, to remember long-form articles I found on the web and to read them later on my e-book readers using the Pocket app for Android.
Unfortunately, the Boox Note Pro it renders all fonts in bold in the Pocket app’s reading view. I find this extremely annoying.
To illustrate, Here are two Screenshots—one created with my phone, the other with the Boox Note Pro. I hope the difference in font weight is visible: smartphone screenshot without bold fonts, NotePro screenshot with bold fonts
The same problem occurs with the ebook-library app Overdrive.
Is there a way to disable this?
I believe the reason to be that Pocket uses Android’s stock webview widget to display content, which Onyx has changed to default to all-bold for increased contrast. It does this by applying a custom CSS,
framework-res/res/raw/webview_contrast_enchanced.css, to all webview content (verified by peeking into my NotePro’s framework-res.apk).
I understand the motivation for having added this feature, but I feel that it is redundant and unnecessary on the the NotePro, which has better ways to control contrast through its “app optimization” features.
