Neither OReader nor AlReader have fonts - they use those from the system.
And because of the other problems you have, contact Google - they are in the Android.

My system contains only 1 font right now yet alreader manages to produce a bunch. Anyway it later did add that one font to the list. So that's not an issue anymore. What is an issue, the menu coloring, with the white theme it's fine but flipping pages then looks like double printed pages, quite unpleasant. Using the e-ink compatibility certain menu elements are unusably dark, like the page select slider.

Alright Google, how about you tell me how to contact google? Because I don't know if you know this but they really really really don't want to accommodate people in that regard. Not to mention that people have been complaining about this for years with no effect. So we're stuck figuring out workarounds. I would appreciate some actual useful input instead what you're doing.

As for the device storage acces with a drive letter. The trail version of MTP Drive is somewhat useful as it comes with a 30 file transfer limit per reboot. So as long as I don't exceed that... But it's far from ideal. I tried the built in wifi transfer but no dice the port 8080 can't be changed which is a problem. So I found this (ad free) program called HTTP File Server that works fine on another port. Then by using the map network drive in the win explorer you can get yourself driveletter access to the device. It is slower though than via usb cable.

I also found this tool FreeFileSync that can handle MTP. So far the best cabled option I've found to suit my needs at least.

My P78 screen cracked across the corner. Normal use, no dropping.

Also, there appear to be no tempered glass screen protectors for P78's. Does anybody know of one?

Wouldn't a 9" universal screen protector work? They're usually in that size range.

When doing a quick search this one pops up.

The reason for MTP is accessing the device storage in OS-independent manner. Mass storage approach requires using filesystems that causes compatibility issues.

There are plenty of 9 inch screen protectors, but none of them on Amazon USA match that aspect ratio. I'm hoping to get glass, not film. Your Dutch link mentions the P78, but I can't find that exact protector for sale at Amazon USA or Amazon UK. What are these "universal" 9 inch protectors that you speak of?

Well those Brotect ones are available on other websites as wel so it's not impossible to get but considering they're German made shipping/importing to the US is kinda expensive.

Tis one may work (the 135mm width version).

I also came across this one it's film but the 9 inch version should fit almost exactly. Thought I'd mention it at least.

Thanks, the actual P78 glass size, that a protector would have to attach to, is about 191mm x 132mm. These are great leads, I'll keep looking.
