Do you want me to host your shareable fonts on my provider's webspace?

A lot of sites that have ads get the ads from an ad server. The some of the ads being served can be dodgy. But that does not make the actual site a problem. For example, around Christmas, Google was saying that TrekBBS was a threat. It was because of some of the ads being served. But the site itself is fine. So don't blame Mediafire if a bad ad got served.

The ads on MediaFire are on the download page. But just because your friend click the wrong link is no reason not to use MediaFire. Besides, why not use MediaFire for hosting your modified fonts that you are allowed to give out? Then you won't have to use your Dropbox account.
I know all about Ads and what they can contain. It the fastest way to get infected on the net. I can't tell you how many infections I have cleaned up for friends and family because they didn't know how to block them.

Thanks but I am happy with the way I am doing it. I don't care for my modified version of fonts to be posted all over the web. I have in the past done this with Sim Downloads I created only to have them stolen or credit taken when it wasn't theirs but I appreciate the offer.

I prefer them to be share the old fashion way through email and PMs.

It's no hassle since I do have to start over anyway. I'll just keep the pre-weighted version as well.
That's very kind of you, JSWolf, thank you.

I'm currently using Palatino at the second largest setting, but Amazon really needs to add another ratio to the gearbox. The size difference between the second largest setting and the first is huge.

You can tweak the metrics and get the font the way you want.

OK, I have a beta version for you to try out. I've not touched the weight. So it's as it comes. But I have fixed the line space and renamed.

http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?7l98ev7p9i1pn5l

If you feel you want a heavier version, please just say so and I'll make one for you to test. I'll make it about in between this version and the other version.

I have not yet done the compact version yet. I'll do that one when we figure out the weight.

The first 4 sizes zoom with consistency then you hit 5 which is a big jump then you hit 6 and it's a huge jump then 7 and finally 8. Who reads at size 8?

Why not give a custom font a try? Here's a screenshot of Gentium Book XL and Charis SIL XL that I modified at size 7. There is also different version of the fonts included.

For Gentium has Regular, Medium, Large and XL (Big) and Charis has Regular, Large and XL. So everyone can find a size they like to read at.

You can PM me or I can PM you if you're interested in trying them.

Wow. That's large. I've only got 34% of vision, but any larger and even I can read that, from across the road no less.

But still, if one needs it, then it's better than reading a 25.000 page braille book

Would you believe with default Palatino you get less words per page at size 7 then my screenshots.

I read at Size 5 myself.

With my Modified Larger Charis SIL you do get more words per page then you do with Caecilia with KF8. It's because the line spacing is tighter and the letters are closer together. The actual letter size is very close.

Even with Mobi it's a better.

I love this! Thank you very much! It's just perfect for me the way it is --no changes needed at all.
