Default menu font?

Hi,
Does anyone know what font kindle used in title bar and Go To TOC menu when reading? It’s not fully supported in my language so I want to change it. I tried changing amazon ember but it was still the same.

Futura or Ember, IIRC. (Helvetica in very old FWs).

Hm...I'm not sure if this is off topic or something, but I'm a bit muddy on the font hack stuff. If I have a system that has FW 5.10 and above, and I actually just want to have custom font for the files (.txt format by the way, I know that the kindle will allow for custom fonts in .azw3 format) that I'll be reading (e.g. on PW4, provided I get it JBed and install the fonts hack), what will I have to override since the custom fonts won't appear on the Aa/normal fonts screen? Or maybe the font hack doesn't work in such a high firmware version/PW4?

I know I can convert the .txt to .azw3, but I'm looking to see if a simpler solution can be done without have to do the conversion (since I have lots of files numbering to the hundreds and thousands...I don't want to think of the time it will take to do all that). Thanks.

I don't actually recall if I ever tested this with TXT files, but I can say that stuff generally appear to still behave (at least on 5.9.7).

The only thing that got broken are FreeType overrides, but that was an extra optional feature, with a built-in safety check, so it just gets automagically disabled on unsupported FW.

Ah...
*.txt is how Lab126 spells *.htm (or *.html).

Hi, NiLuJe, many thanks for your great works, esp. your excellent font hack extension, by which i turn off "antialias" in my KV, making fonts outline sharper and released my eyes a lot (very personal sense), with the following code:

<edit name="antialias" mode="assign"><bool>false</bool></edit>

It makes me to pick up my KV again which thrown aside for a long time.

Here is my problem:
Now i find out this turning off "antialias" func works not on custom-added fonts, though well on system-embedded fonts.

Do i have an opportunity to ask for solutions for such func on custom-added fonts?

(temporarily i hack the system fonts till now, but i hate to re-hack when a new font is enlisted)

Thanks in advance.

Define "custom" . There may be scoping issues where AA is concerned, check all the base fontconfig settings.

It's been years since I looked at this stuff, so that's a bit of a wild guess. You can check live with fc-match's verbose output.

Thanks. Yet I am shame to say me a newbie of newbies, even the code above i got it simply by web search, so forgive me cannot catch you a master well here.
For KV, maybe it accesses custom fonts differently from embedded ones. Anyway, will hang on to see if sb would offer a good example, who cares much on AA as I do.

Something went wrong. Paperwhite gen. 1:

- jailbreak
- update to 5.6.1.1 from *.bin file
- install KUAL, MRPI, Python and font hack from https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=225030
- paste my font in *.ttf format to linkfonts/fonts folder
- KUAL > Fonts > Fonts Hack Behavior > Update fontconfig cache
- restart...
- 6 original fonts + publisher font

Sorry for my english.

@sosik1: read the big fat warning about FW >= 5.4.x in the first post.
