New fonts in SD card doesn't show up in font list

The fonts I recently saved into my SD card don't show up in the format options menu. The very strange thing is that this is the second time I loaded fonts into the font directory of my SD card; the fonts I loaded in the first round showed up, but not the fonts in the second round, and fonts I deleted are still showing up in the options menu.

Even stranger, if I access the font directory using the Bebook, I can see the fonts I just loaded... they just refuse to show up in the options menu. I tried rebooting the Bebook, but still no luck...

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Interesting. I have various ideas why this can happen, but it needs a bit of debugging. Please open a ticket, so the issue won't get lost.

I ran into the same effect; changes to the font folder are not recognized by the reader applications (deleted fonts still listed/added fonts ignored). Full reboots do not help.
What does help, though, is *attempting* to reflash the reader with the exact same firmware. Attempting, because the bootloader runs through the process in seconds rather than minutes and clearly does not replace the firmware.
Rebooting with a different font folder configuration after the attempt does result in an updated font list in both FBreader and Coolreader.

Also of note: booting up with 100 font families in FBreader works smoothly, but repeatedly testing the different fonts results in an incremental slowdown in application response (page turns, menus, etc) after a couple dozen font tests. Performance went from pleasingly snappy to painfully slow. Again, attempting to re-flash restored performance.

Not a big issue either way as I've achieved my goal of narrowing down my font load to a handful that look good at the sizes I favor. First choice is Georgia, for what its worth. Clean, dark, and very smooth in both portrait and dual-column landscape.

The more I use OI, the more I like.
A donation will be forthcoming.
