I renamed the files, but I'll look into it once more.

For me, the key points for adding new fonts is to ensure the font file name matches the font name with the style/weight added and that the Kobo has been power cycled after the fonts are copied to the fonts directory -- remembering that the fonts directory name is also case sensitive.

Turns out this problem is a bug that appears if the language is set to Portuguese, I changed it to English and now it is ok, that's why nobody else reported this bug.

Bug: Wishlist "footer" on home screen says Wishlist is empty. It is not. Tapping this footer opens my wishlist and shows the three books on there.

Reproducible: Yes, it always says empty. Started after a factory reset and sync though – before that it said there was one book in my wishlist (which was correct at the time).

New: I think so. I didn't see this before 2.4.0, but then, I never reset and resynced.

Kepub or epub: Yes.

Workaround: None that I've found.

10 pages in and most of those are just chatter. Could we please keep this to just bug reports... Please and thanks.

Updated the following bug info:

Page 1:
Bug: Kobo not remembering the exact page where you left off reading when put to sleep. On awake, book is 1 or 2 pages back from where you left off.

Bug: Kobo w/ Sleepcover goes to sleep 30 secs after being woken up with sleepcover if screen is not touched within that time.

Page 3:
Bug: Font size changing from readable to smallest setting.

---------

Bug: When turning on the Kobo Glo (not sure if it affects the Touch) and books are kept on an SD Card, the carousel is not populated even if I wait for a couple of minutes. All I get is the Add books screen.

Reproducible: Yes, happens every time I turn on my Glo.

New: Yes, previous firmwares would show this screen but then populate the carousel after reading the card. Does not populate after being turned on now

Kepub or epub: epubs on SD card.

Workaround: Thankfully there is one. Select Library and then any of the options (I usually select books) and then select the HOME icon. Carousel will then populate with appropriate books.

I don't have a sleepcover and have the same bug, so I don't think it's sleepcover related.

This happened to me day before yesterday repeatedly, and I have a KT (old model)! The intervals were even shorter, I guess 10 to 15 seconds. This has never happened before, and did not happen since.

Even if you turn off the sleepcover behaviour in Settings, the bug still occurs when using the power slider. The non-sleep cover portion of the bug was only introduced in 2.4.0.

Arrrgh - highlighting so so glitchy, slow, and frustrating.

Don't know if that's a "bug" or not.

Already in the thread. This is one of my 'standard' bugs that I check out each release. It's gotten better, but still not working right.

Had a lot of trouble the other day moving the selection on the last line of a page.

It seems worse for me now. Also...it can take up to eight times to get a highlight right - and that's after touching "highlight" after doing the toggle.


Sorry about bringing it up again; I didn't see it in Danger's post #142, which I had understood to be a summary of bugs reported so far. Ah, well.


ETA at 8:15 pm Eastern Daylight Savings Time:. I have a new record to report...twelve attempts and counting for my latest highlight. On my Kindle I could've totally completed this book, taking highlights and all, in half the time that's it's taken me to get this far (70%) through it on the Kobo Glo. Annotations not working, either.
