I used the same Fontin font you put together for me for the K2 font hack.

Did that as well via the settings menu and also tried the 20 sec hold on the slider switch.

I also saved an original copy of the reader.pref file (renamed reader.pref.original) that I saved in a separate directory on my in case I messed up when editing.

I have noticed that after the font change fails and I go back to check the reader.pref file, the lines have been rearranged from the original. Does that matter.
