Hi all:
Do we have any experience with Lollipop as of yet? Does HandBase work in Android 5? and if so anything we should know?

Hi Gary,

Thanks for writing. I haven't encountered any problems on my Nexus 7 yet, nor have we received any reports of problems.

If you update and do find problems, please let us know, since there are so many variations from device to device.
Kind Regards,

I'm currently using Android 5 and so far it is working but I have a display issue with the list. Kind of cut off a little bit on the bottom.

Hi Brandon,

Thanks for confirming that HanDBase is working on your Note 4 running Lollipop.

Regarding the display issue, we are investigating solutions. In the meantime, please try the following:

- Open HanDBase for Android to the database selection screen
- Select Menu / Preferences
- When the screen refreshes adjust the height of the font in list view, decreasing it to about 12 or 14

If that still doesn't make a suitable adjustment, go to the font section of the display settings for your phone and adjust the font size to a smaller display option there, and perhaps a smaller font in general, as the fonts vary in size overall.
Kind Regards,
Brian Houghton, DDH Software

Thanks for confirming, and congratulations on the Note 4, also. I'm eyeing one for myself when my next upgrade is here...

I had the Note 2 before I got this note 4 and it is a big improvement.

Also note the custome Form part has a similar display issue. It is miner. The filed x and y display pop up is cut off when moving fields

For the record, I just found out that the font height setting fixed the issue on my new Galaxy S6. I've used this product for years and I'm glad to see such well designed and feature rich versions on newer platforms.
