I chickened out ... Forgot that, if needed, you can only roll back with a PC. We're all Chromebooks in my house so I'm a little leery to jump in without a parachute.

I wish Samsung beta was like Google's and you could just downgrade via an OTA.

Oh well, I'll live vicariously through you all

Samsung is killing it with the One UI updates for September. 3 updates in 1 month. I'm guessing the next update maybe the final product. Only thing needed is Good Lock to be updated.

Just out of interest, when you pull out the S pen on the S23 Ultra and you get a list of apps to use, is the option for 'magnify' still there?
I'm not sure if it's just this beta but I've got no option to add magnify to the list and doing a search finds no magnify app on my phone.

I can confirm it's gone for me too.

I just wrote about Google removing stuff without permission on another thread...or maybe it's Samsung? UUUuuuuughghghhh!
As much as you may not like it, they do not need permission to alter *their* software. You own the device, not the software it runs.

I'm not saying I agree with this, I don't. But it is the world we live in.

This is doubly true here, where we opted into a beta with informed consent.

Is anyone else facing the issue where the set font is not applying across the UI completely?

I chose the new "Default" font, but at least 50% of UI elements are in a much more plain font.

Last night I installed a font from the Galaxy Store, and it was the same 50% kind of result, but when I woke up in the morning, it had applied properly across everything in the UI.

I can't figure out how to trigger that manually, lol.

Actually, the issue is only with the Default font. I just tried other fonts and they are pretty much applying properly.

I tried wiping the cache partition, but it didn't improve things.

The result when choosing Default looks like a mix of the old Default font and the new one.

Compare the font of the clock versus the battery percentage in the attached pic, for example.

I'm surprised u could load US version on Canadian phone
So was I. No Prince Comsey or anything creative required. A direct flash using Odin, and then sideloaded each new beta in sequence. I was on ZWIK when I started reading today's posts.

Plus, I got my beloved individual toggles for Calls/SMS/Data back 😍 "All" you need to do is switch the CSC on U1 firmware to GCF, and voila.

Gotta love XDA Forums 🤓
