    Hello All:

    Very new to androids. I noticed today that icons on my home screen with long labels are cutoff with not all of the label visible. I rooted it today and not sure if it was like this prior. No other issues. Tried changing font size to no avail.

    Example. Titanium backup icon and the label is cutoff at the a in backup. So tje label reads Titanium Ba and then fafes out to unreadable. Is this normal/fixable?

    GALAXY NOTE 10.1

    I've not rooted my Note and it seems that long labels are supposed to be cut off by default. I don't think it's an after-effect of rooting.

    Welcome to the AndroidForums, js358!

    I've moved your thread over to the all-things-root area for the Galaxy Note.

    The good folks in there might be familiar with your issue and offer you some advice.

    Long icon labels are supposed to be cut off, otherwise your home screen would look a terrible mess. It's nothing to worry about and it happens on unrooted devices as well.
