When you have more the pull down takes up the whole screen & shows two columns of font names! And it works.

I'm having this same issue, and I'd like to revert to 1.9.4. However, when I factory reset, it brings me back to 1.9 - do you know how to get just the 1.9.4 update? I'm okay with not syncing to Kobo for a while while this gets fixed...

P.S. has anyone reported this problem on any sort of official channel? Seems pretty important!

I'll 2nd Byron's comment. I have 14 currently on it and it shows in 2 columns (13 per column) so in theory at least 26 possible.

I was part of the evaluation group for the 1.9.5 firmware release and I asked about this problem since it also affects some of my epubs. I was told that they have fixed the problem so both you and I will have to be patient until the fix is implemented.

Regards,
Joe

I just made a small epub file containing a simple paragraph with multiple sizes to help me evaluate fonts:

http://www.chauveau-central.net/pub/font-test.epub

The zebra image between the text pages can be used to check the impact of 'ghosting'.

The sample text is in french but it can easily be changed by editing the file Page_1.htm file (if you don't already know, an epub is nothing else than a zip file)

The current text is supposed to contain some bold, italic and oblique samples but, as indicated in some previous posts, this is broken in 1.95 :-(

Thanks very much for the offer. I think I may take you up on it in the next day or two if the Kobo devs don't push out an update right away. Hopefully they will though and I won't have to bother you

Hmm. Not for me. Single column, 12 fonts total. I wonder what the difference is.

For those who want to revert to 1.9.4:

If you happen to get a copy of the firmware somewhere, after you reset your Kobo to factory settings, skip the set-up when you start, then unzip the contents of the update file into the .kobo directory of your Kobo. There should be a koboroot.tdz, manifest.md5sum, and an upgrade folder (with a couple other files in the upgrade folder.) Eject the kobo the same as you would a USB thumb drive, unplug, and the update should install itself. Good luck and have fun.

Edit: PS Technically, I haven't seen anythign in the firmware updates that gives anyone permission to copy and distribute it. While I'm sure it would be very entertaining for anyone to post a moral objection, if anyone were to engage in this wantom act of piracy, it would probably best to not flaunt it where kobo employees have no choice but see/respond.

Try checking the directory where Kobo Desktop stores data.

On Windows 7 it is C:\Users\<user_name>\AppData\Local\Kobo\Kobo Desktop Edition.

Sooty has a file there called kobo3-upgrade-1.9.4.zip but, since we did the upgrade to 1.9.5 via WiFi, no file for that version is there.

Now I'm the one who feels stupid... here I was fetching the files off the Kobo before disconnecting it... and all along, they are right there. Thanks.

I have a kobo3-upgrade-1.9.2.zip I could trade for that ...
