• Virtual Keyboard

When using virtual keyboard the auto suggest feature does not function. 

 

• Light Theme

There are some known visual contrast issues in messaging, the entertainment twist, and the Mixer twist—you may see white on white. Fixes will be coming soon. 

 

• Sign-in

When using Arabic or Hebrew language and signing in with a profile using the “Lock it down” security preference, the sign-in screen which requests Microsoft account e-mail address and password is distorted. This does not affect the profile if it is set to use the “Ask for my passkey” or “No barriers” security preferences.

Workaround: Set the console to use another language, sign-in, and set the profile’s security preference to “Ask for my passkey” or “No barriers”. Alternatively, you can still type in your password as normal using the virtual keyboard though the screen is distorted.

 

• Netflix

When using Hebrew language, Netflix fails to launch.

 

• Home

Images on the Mixer tab may appear clipped or duplicated.

I tried to install a new app, but I keep getting a message saying Try Agan Later, Something Happened At Our End

Font Bug: (see pictures)


I have this Bug since the early alphas.

Some texts are not displayed correctly.

Tested under English and German.

Apart from that, the system works normally.












Hi dejeppo,,


Don't worry, it's quite a normal thing to see during system updates, especially when new features, menus or settings are added.
It's not a bug or anything corrupt or broken, although it does look a little strange as you can see.

It's called pseudo text, and is really just a place holder for non U.S. character sets / languages.
Any instances of pseudo text throughout the dashboard will be removed as the updates progress, and will be completely gone by the time the update is released to everyone.


:o)

 and will be completely gone by the time the update is released to everyone.

I thought so. but after which I have the problem already over a year. I thought it would be time to report it

It's all part of the update process dejeppo, it's been there since the preview programme started 3 and a half years ago, and always will be, when new settings / features are added.


It's only added so people outwith the US don't have blank sections of text in sections that have to support their own language, that's why the preview team add in the pseudo text.


If you were to switch to the US dashboard, you would see no pseudo text whatsoever.


;o)
