PRS-350 with PRS+and cyrillic issue

Hi all,

I have PRS-350 and some time ago I installed PRS+ ver.2.0.18. Everything worked well (I particularly used the cyrillic support).

Recently the reader started slowing down. As I had a lot of books uploaded, I decided to wipe everything out (Format Internal Memory) and load only the books I need (fairy tales to read to my kids, in cyrillic). I was quite surprised that after the Format Internal Memory and reloading the same EPUB files with the cyrillic text (from Calibre library), now I cannot see the contents in cyrillic - I see question marks instead. I am sure I was able to view these books before in cyrillic.

I decided to upgrade PRS+ to 2.1.02alpha (did it successfully), but still see the question marks - the upgrade did not help too.

Any thoughts about what could be wrong and how to correct it?

It's been a long time since I used PRS+. Are the books created with the Cyrillic font included inside the eBook? Could it be you need to add a copy of the Cyrillic font to your PRS-350 in a fonts folder somewhere, so your books can find it? And you might have to ensure you have all versions (regular, bold, italic, bold italic, etc).

Thanks for the reply!

Actually I figured it out. It turns out that I need to have the setting

"Settings" -> "PRS+ Settings" -> "Book Viewer" -> "User EPUB Style (CSS File) "

set to

"FontsAsInLRF.css"

and now I am able to read Cyrillic fonts in my EPUB ebooks.

Previously this was set to "Disabled". Unfortunately I don't actually know what this setting does (will do some research later when I get some free time), but wanted to post this here in case somebody else has the same problem.
