Different Font with iSilo

Some people have complained that iSilo doesn't support different fonts like for instance PalmReader Pro does.

But you can use different fonts with iSilo. Lubak gives an excellent explanation how to do that. He offers solutions for both, Palm OS 4.x and 5.x users.

For OS 4.x users (like myself), you basically need three things:[list=1][*]A hack manager a la Tealmaster (Payware) or X-Master (free) [*]FontHack 4.0c Beta (make sure you scroll down to the hi-res download)[*]A font database. Here you have the choice. You can either pick one font database from Lubak's page, or you can get the Swiz font, or you can use (if you already own it) or buy the Palm Reader Pro Font Packs.[/list=1]
In your hack manager you can configure Fonthack to map the new font to your current system font. You can do this either specifically for iSilo, or system-wide.

My favorite Font (which I use since day 2 of my Clie) is the "OS5" font from Lubak's page. The font mapping for this font is:
HrStandard -> OS5 (0)
HrBold -> OS5 (1)
HrLarge -> OS5 (2)
HrLargeBold -> OS5 (3)

I will post some comparison screenshots in the next few days.

If anyone of you owns a OS 5.x Palm and want to tell us his/her experience with font replacements, please do so here

The only reason I used PalmReader Pro instead of iSilo for reading ebooks (one of my fave past times) was because of the fonts.

Wow. Thanks Alexander! I'm going to dump PRP.

I use Palm Reader Pro because of the books I can get there and nowhere else, the Webster's Unabridged for example. Tell me how I can get that elsewhere, and I too will consider limiting myself to iSilo alone. RadleyP

One further note: I cannot use FontHack anyhow, since it conflicts with cyrillic localization. Either one or the other, not both, works. RadleyP

Webster's Unabridged is also available as stand-alone for PalmOS, but it comes with the awkward Franklin Bookreader.

Isilo consistently uses fonts that are too small for me to see (due to using HiRes).

I use FontHack 123 using the same mapping listed above - but the problem is that Isilo doesn't use the "HR___" fonts.

Since the Standard font is used in the menu system, if I map that font using FontHack 123, then the menus become unusable.

If I set Isilo to "Large Font Absolute", then I can map the Large Font to a font that I want to use (and standard stays the same so that menus are okay), but I lose all the formatting - for some reason, it doesn't use then use LargeBold for Bold text, and so forth, it just uses the one font for everything.

That setup works for Shadow Plan, because that program works well with one font and font size for everything, but in Isilo, I lose everything that I want out of a web page reader if I do that.

This looks like a "deal breaker", frankly.

PS Another problem I've encountered is that the synced files don't end up in the categories in the Isilo viewer that are set in IsiloX.

iSilo uses the HR fonts. Have a look at the next two screenshots.

Interesting. I haven't had this problem and am using categories all the time. Can you tell me your current setup (iSilo version, category name, ...)?

If you use Lubak's mappings for OS5 for instance, the menus still look just fine.
