You can only remove the user installed fonts. But once you delete the fonts from the Kindle, you do have to restart.

Hi! Just wanted to say that I, too, quite like the Charis SIL, BUT! The space between lines is a bit too wide for my liking, even at the lowest line spacing. How would I go about amending this? Thanks for any help in advance!

Blossom,where do you get these modified fonts? (I love playing with fonts)

Thanks,

I modified them with Font Creator Pro. It's an expensive program but hubby got it from school when he took a Typography class and had to make his own font.

As to where I got them let's see Trebuchet I got from my Kindle Fire it's also on my Windows so it may come with something. Nokia Pure I found in a theme for Android on the net. Segoe Semi I got years ago when Microsoft was promoting their new font suite they put up the family for a limited time. Amasis is the old Nook's font that someone modified for eInk.

You can disable fonts by editing a file on root partition. Requires jailbreak and usb network. See this post, but careful, that is definately not something you want to do if you are not comfortable going that deep into your Kindle.

Is there any way to add font sizes without rooting? There are several fonts that I really like, but I don't like using them on my Kindle Paperwhite because all of the available sizes are either too small, or too big while using that font. Fanwood Text, for instance, a font I like to use on my Kindle Keyboard, appears too large on my Paperwhite.

Did you do the mods by hand or use the auto features?

What's the best way to remove the spacing at the bottom of the font so the lines are closer together?

Hi guys, I finally got around to adding custom fonts as well. News that this is possible without a jailbreak just reached me today - thanks you to all of you who shared this!

Adobe Garamond Pro in size 6 looks like real print in a pbook, but it could be a tad heavier.
How do you make a font heavier?

Also, for any dyslexic readers out there, I stumbled over the Open Dyslexic font.

I wonder if non-dyslexic readers would benefit from using that font as well. It may be easier for the brain to process independently from ones condition.

I use the Auto Feature. I'm just learning. I have no idea on how to move the lines closer.

I am dyslexic but that font is horrible.

Hey Blossom, good shout on the Amasis font, it looks great on my PW.

Any idea what modifications I need to make to it to make it like Barty's? Or what are any other recommended mods to it for using on e-ink?

I don't know how to change the line spacing but there is a compact version of Charis SIL that may help:

On a Kindle with a Mobi eBook, the line height make no difference at all.

But on an eInk Kindle that supports KF8, Charis SIL Compact is much better. So, I will put together a modified version of Charis SIL Compact (and one for small caps) and post the link here in this thread.

No sorry, not that I am aware of. Right now the only way to do that is by jailbreaking and installing JBPatch. For me the biggest benefit of JBPatch is the ability to reduce margins for mobi books, and of course hyphenation.

Ixtab, you rock. Have one on me:

Thanks DuckieTigger. I'll make do with the extra fonts - the jailbreak & USB network stuff is not for me!
