Create a blank text file then remove the extension.

There is a very very simple hack to the PW & Touch to allow you to install your own fonts without needing to root or jailbreak. See the following post...

In case it ends up not going to the right post, it's #8 in the thread.

Okay I think my PW has had enough restarts for one day. Geesh! It took some fiddling but I finally got it to work. I had to rename my fonts to link to the same family using Font Creator. Not needed the old way but it works now.

I now have my Amasis back! I's so happy!

This is all very cool. But can I ask: is there a resource for fonts that've already been fancied up or modified for use? You know, otf or ttf files that have been optimized for reading on a Kindle? Or the Kindle Paperwhite with it's higher resolution? Thanks for any leads!

I know this is probably a silly question, but where do you find the fonts to put in that new folder? Thanks

Actually, don't need to be fonts anymore optimized for eink with the PW. Even fancy fonts with small serifs and non-uniform thickness look great. Other thal finding any otf or ttf fonts online (there is tons of free ones) you can simply copy fonts from your computer. In Win7 for example, simply type fonts into the search in start - goes to fonts folder. Then open a font and pick regular, italic, bold, and bold-italic. Sometimes it will work for fonts that miss italic. Comic Sans for example works with only bold and regular - the italic shows up on kindle as well - think just slanted over.

One font I also like straight out of Windows is Tektron Pro - that is a font that has non-uniform thickness and non-straight lines. Looks great on PW.
