In Daily Kanji, change romaji text to a brighter color

The blue used for the romaji text in Daily Kanji is relatively dark and is hard to read, especially when the brightness is dimmed during the evening.

I suggest changing it to the aqua / real used in the various headline news apps.

Great idea. I’ve submitted that change. Hopefully they push it soon.

the Kanji characters no longer show up on tidbyte. (tried factory reset and re DLing the app)
any help is most appreciated

same here – I tried that text-to-image URL with a base64 encoded kanji and it now just returns a blank image (note ascii characters work fine).

no image:

However, it does work with txt-size up to 22:


Also, txt-size=23 works at other height and width sizes – 64x64, 40x40, but not below 34?

とても奇妙な, something on their back end? Don’t see anything obvious in their docs, maybe some weird unicode thing. Hope that helps.

update: they merged a few PRs released an update from 11.16 to 11.17 a couple of days ago – that’s when I first noticed it, so maybe related.

Those updates did break the app. I have a fix submitted. Hopefully they’ll merge the PR soon and the kanji character will show up again.
