Android Mobile Application: HOTFIX ENCLOSED

I've been working with Microsoft Support team (big shoutout to Mohamad Vajid and Duilio Tacconi who got me the fix to try same day) on this one.

Since the update for the Android App came out on December 11, version 2.5.19628, all our customers on Android phones are reporting that when ANY pages are open in Edit Mode, the text inside controls is invisible (looking blank). You cannot see the contents, not even while typing them. The text is THERE, as you can select it, copy and paste it. This occurs on a variety of Android devices.

(Screenshot on this thread, thanks Nikolay)

This affects NAV 2015, NAV 2016, and NAV 2017.

In updating the mobile application for newer Android, something in the CSS interpretation was no longer handling things quite correctly, so there is new CSS. The fix I tried and has worked is this:
1. Locate CSS files (Desktop.css, Phone.css, Tablet.css) in the Web Client folder. (Typically C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\100\Web Client\Resources )

2. For every CSS file replace the following

.android-multi-columns-layout .edit-container{-webkit-transform:translateZ(0);transform:translateZ(0)}

.android-multi-columns-layout .edit-container{-webkit-transform-style: preserve-3d;transform-style: preserve-3d;}

NOTE: No need to restart IIS (no need to iisreset).

I did have to close/reopen the NAV application on the Android device.
