You most certainly CAN add custom fonts.

Thanks for pointing this out.

Yes, but it takes more taps.

And I miss the hearts. When browsing through my library, the hearts were my indicator wether the book was new and "to be read" or not.

I'm with you there. I was just pointing out erroneous info in the previous post.

I said 'to a shelf in the Books listing', not 'add a shelf'. (though I also don't see how to add a shelf in the Books listing.)

I'm in 'Books' currently sorted by Recent Reads. I click on the slashes and there is Read Now, View Details, Mark as Finished, Delete. Ok.. not there. Click on View Details... I don't see anything there either, just Read now.

If I go to Shelves I can add Shelves and books there, but that isn't where I want to add it from which is why I mentioned the Books shelf specifically. If I'm wrong, please correct/teach me . You used to be able to do something like 'add to shelf' within the Books listing or click the heart.


Quote:

How? According to the other thread adding a Fonts folder doesn't work and there is no Fonts folder on my device nor can I find any fonts. Was it just that the tested fonts were the wrong type? Again, feel free to teach me how to make this work if I missed it. I want my Delima back.

When I purchased the Touch I specificially bought a device that was NOT connected to a store like the Kindle and Nook. If I had known they were going to add Discover, Wishlist, Find Books, Recommendations, having to stay signed-in to a store I don't use, etc., I would have gone with a different product so its a big deal for me and might be a big deal to others in their to upgrade or not decision process.

The Kobo manual explains how to add fonts. It is very easy. You add a folder called fonts in your root directory and then copy the fonts you want into that folder. You will want to chose fonts that have four variants so you get the normal font, bold, bold italics and normal italics.

These is a video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KU7JpaKlyMc I have not watched it. The link to all the Kobo user guides can be found at: http://www.kobo.com/userguides

I'm not a huge fan of using the store, so I just don't click on the buttons that take me there.

Further to what Taming said, the key thing with adding fonts is that you have to be very careful with naming -- the directory name is case sensitive and to get bold/italics etc to work they need to be named properly. Do a search on add fonts and there are a number of threads with detailed directions. I know it works because I double checked and my sideloaded Roboto font is still working on my KT and works on my KG.
You will have to find a Delima font to add.

Are you on the 2.1.4? In that firmware you can add a book to shelf via the menu beside the individual books. Pretty sure I checked this on my KT, but for sure on KG (not next to the KT currently)

Kobo's George Taluson gave this explanation of font names:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...5&postcount=46

For example. Gentium Basic files are named like this:

GenBasB.ttf
GenBasBI.ttf
GenBasI.ttf
GenBasR.ttf

When I upgraded from 2.0.0c to 2.0.4 (the first time, as it took two times to actually load the 2.0.4 firmware), a file was left behind by the update, Welcome_Guide_JA.kepub.epub, which is a Japanese welcome guide to a 2.0 (or earlier) version.

I am on 2.1.4 (rd43710, 10/1/12) and do NOT have that functionality in my KT. Either its a Glo thing or not all versions of 2.1.4 are the same.

I'll double check the fonts. Sounds like its working for everyone so the info I read in the other thread was misleading or was cleared up after I read the thread. The other poster could have made a Fonts and not fonts folder.

Thanks for clearing things up .

I still can't sign-out without having to re-run setup settings so that original bug remains.

Do you have any shelves on your KT yet? When my daughters first got their Minis, I checked and the "add to shelf" option wasn't there in library view. However, when I checked again later that night, the option was now there. Imagine my confusion. I read a post by someone else on these forums, though, who said they didn't have the "add to shelf" option either until they'd created a shelf manually.

FWIW, I have 2.1.4 on my KT and the "add to shelf" function is there from the library view and from within a book itself.

I have a Touch with the firmware version 2.1.4 (r43710, 10/1/12) not 2.1.4 (rd43710, 10/1/12), as you have and on mine I can add a book to a shelf from the Books listing screen. When I select the menu beside a book I am presented with six options: Read Now, View Details, Similar Books, Add to Shelf, Mark as Finished and Delete.

And one rather major non-improvement. On three Kobo Touch units, after the 2.1.4 update, when reading a sideloaded book from an SD card, if the KT goes to sleep, after waking up, it does not respond to taps and then restarts.
