How to add custom fonts?

I read a lot of posts saying that I can simply copy fonts into a folder called "fonts" in Kobo's eReader and it's done.

I've upgraded my Forma's firmware to 4.13.12638 and try to do so but unfortunately, my fonts are not shown in the Kobo font list and the name of fonts are in blank.

Is there anything wrong?

There are fairly strict standards for the names of the font files. That is frequently the problem when fonts don't appear. See https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=204363 for instructions.

You should also restart the device to make sure they are seen.

The Calibre ePub Check plugin can check embedded fonts in an epub and highlight filenames that can be incompatible.
Note a family of fonts must have the main part of the name renamed the same. Avoid extra dots, space or accents.
