Oh, maybe I find some easy way to make the line spacing change. There is gotta be a simple fix. Or you could just ask your hubby which knob to turn to get it to work.

It's public, but if anyone doesn't read the Kindle forum, then they'll miss this.

What I plan on doing is releasing a new Charis SIL Modified based on the information in this thread. Blossom has given me some things to work on to see how they look. I'm going to play with the line spacing as some may not like it as tight as I had it. I'll do two versions. One as tight and one less tight. But I am going the weight some to make it more readable.

Is there any program where I could do this?
Besides editing the font, you can also edit the font sizes the Kindle offers.
If you install JBPatch you can tweak the fontsizes the Kindle offers and many other things.
You can also install Coolreader3 - version from CrazyCoder works nice and there you can set ANY fontzise, line spacing you wish. Plus, you can set many other things.

I've managed to install the JBPatch, how do you use it to change the font sizes?

Edit: Never mind, I've figured it out.

Thanks everyone who gave me tips. I was about ready to return my Paperwhite, because I could never find a font I liked.

Hello.

I use High Logic FontCreator 6.0,

When I use Tools-Glyph transformer, everything is ok.

But, I have a problem when I try to adjust line spacing in Verdana fonts.

I go to Format-Settings-Metrics and change the next options:

- Win adscent
- Win descent
- Typo Line Gap
- Line Gap.

When I go to Font-Test, the line spacing change well, it is obvious, but...

When I select Verdana fonts in my Aa kindle paperwhite, the line spacing don't change, I only change it with kindle options.

Can you help me with this?

Thanks ;-)

In Mobi, the line spacing is set by the firmware. The only place the line spacing of the font makes a difference is when embedded in KF8. So unless you are using KF8, line spacing matters not.

I'm trying to exercise in self-promotion outside of Developer's Corner, so... if you want to thank the person who originally discovered and described USE_ALT_FONTS method, you just listened to his shameless modest words: "I'm starving for karma glad it was useful to so many people."

Thanks!, it is.

I always send my books by wifi in mobi.

Now, I send by USB in format AZW3, and line spacing works fine...

Yay! Happy you got it working again.

I have finally reach my limit in fonts. After 10 the screen cuts off the line and margin settings completely. At 10 you can barely see those settings but I can still select the top of the icons and change them but after 10 you can't. I added a screenshot to show what I mean and put a number be each of the custom fonts.

I've been going through my font discs from back in my Web Designer days. It's so hard for me to find a serif font I like. I have too many Sans Serifs as you can see. I do now have a full set of Amasis which is nice. The Amasis I have been using now for over a year is mixed up of 3 font families. Amasis, Helvetica Neue and Chaparral Pro. It's also has been resized to be larger something I never would've caught before. Amasis MT is the perfect size once I added weight.

If I wasn't so worried about bricking my PW I would jailbreak it and install the hack for font sizes.

I haven't done the font size jailbreak, but I did the regular jailbreak and the one for collections management - with fear and trembling - but it actually turned out to be fairly easy and painless. I'm debating now whether to install the book covers hack, but that one sounds rather more complex, and like you I'm nervous about bricking my PW.

Remember the KISS principle from the days of yore: "Keep It Simple Stupid?'

You folks must have spent far more time on jailbreaking, font testing and other schemes than reading any eBooks.

By the way, Moon+ Reader Pro at the Amazon site has a RED "X" next to the Kindle Fire HD so Amazon has not yet approved that app for that device, either.
