Note that the old, old USE_ALT_FONTS trick is *nowhere* near as polished as the custom fonts support added in FW 5.9.7 that you experienced on the PW3.
I didn't even know there was another way to add fonts besides the USE_ALT_FONTS method. I'll read through your "FW 5.3.x - 5.7.x Fonts Hack" post and see if that does the trick. Thanks!

Collections not working

Hi,

I tried using the instructions for creating Collections within Calibre and then exporting them to Kindle, but it doesn't seem to work. I tried two methods: the first was trying to create a custom column and then filling it out, customizing so that they are set to create, then clicking create on Kindle. I tried ejecting and disconnecting my kindle to then restart multiple times and it did not work. The second was trying to create automatic collections using tags. Also did not work.

In both methods, Calibre tells me the correct collections were created, but when I go through the methods to check Kindle, they are not there.

What am I doing wrong? Does my Kindle Paperwhite 4 (2018) need to be jailbroken for this to work?

Keep in mind, I have successfully copied my books to my calibre library to edit all the metadata, and then copied it back to my Kindle and that worked fine.

Any help is appreciated!

Yes, jailbreak is required.

Also, this thread is for older devices and firmware versions.

Instructions for PW4 are here:
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=312489

JB method only works on stock firmware 5.10.0.1 and 5.10.0.2. It won't work if you've updated either manually or automatically.

After JB, you'd need to install the JB hotfix, MRPI, KUAL coplate build, python and LibrarianSync.
