Any way to diable pinch-to-zoom text resizing?

Ever since firmware 3.2.0, my Aura has been super sensitive to pinch-gesture font size changing. I hate it. 9 out of every 10 two-finger swipe gestures for changing brightness ends in shrinking my font down to unreadable sizes.

I don't want to lose the brightness gesture so if the only option is disabling gestures entirely then I'll live with the font zoom annoyance. Ideally I'd like to disable font zoom while leaving brightness enabled.

I have the same problem since upgrading to 3.3.0, annoying isn't it. Hopefully someone has a solution for us.

I have somehow managed to find a way to zoom in while using a single stylus. Not sure how I am managing this, but I wish it would stop.

3.3.0 Aura 6" here, and I've not had that problem since figuring out to light-swipe with my fingertips together. If you're taking care with this, I wonder if there's a finger size difference contributing?

Hi there,

I created this patch that should do exactly what you're after:

It's for 3.3.1 and works on my 6" Aura.
