Also I think we are limited to 8 fonts so make sure you don't install more than that or you won't see all the fonts.

Mine are named:
genbas.ttf genbasbd.ttf genbasbi.ttf genbasi.ttf
genbkbas.ttf genbkbasbd.ttf genbkbasbi.ttf genbkbasi.ttf
Where are you storing them? I have them in the fonts folder on my SD card, and they're still not showing up for Mobi books.

This is how I have mine named too, except I have them in the /fonts directory I have on the SD card. Both the basic and book basic versions work fine for me.

They work in the /fonts directory on the SD card for me, too.

At first I could not get it to work, and put the SD card in my netbook (which runs Linux). It turned out the fonts were named incorrectly--they were genbas.ttf.ttf, etc. The extensions were doubled somehow--I guess because I created it on my Windows PC, and didn't realize the extensions were hidden. When I renamed the files properly, everything worked.

Do the fonts need to be on the same storage that is being used for the file being read?

duh!


I apparently made a typo and had called my genbasbd.ttf genbasb.ttf... Naming is very important!
