Adding fonts

I don't understand adding fonts. I have put several TTF files in a directory called "fonts" on the SD card, but when, while reading a book, I select #7 "Font face" there are only the three usual options - arial, times, IBOOKN. Under the "settings" menu there is a "Replace font" setting, which does show the new fonts and allows me to put a check mark against one font; but that doesn't seem to have any effect except on the font used in the menus. How do I change the font in which the book is displayed?

Regards, JohnCD

Which kind of files are you trying to change the font of?

Font changing doesn't work on all kind of files. It doesn't work on PDF, or Mobipocket (at least by now, you only can change to 3 fonts, not your own), but it works on fb2 books.

Looks like MobiPocket file. There is no way (now) to add user fonts. Maybe in some future firmware from BeBook it will be possible.
