Side-loaded Font Weight Patch

Hey Folks,

I heard that Kobo e-readers cannot manipulate the weight of side-loaded fonts, unless the user installs a patch. Is there a post in this forum where I can download the patch? Are patches easy to install? I have no programming experience, but I've watched a few YouTube tutorials on it and it seems fairly straightforward. Will changing the weight of side-loaded fonts mess up the kerning or cause any other problems, like not being able to left-justify?

If the Kobo can change the weight of side-loaded fonts, without messing up the kerning, I will probably buy one (Kobo Clara HD) and install a font that I find legible.

If I understand your question correctly, what you want if the "Freedom to advanced fonts control" patch. And yes, patches are easy to install.

Is there a patch for firmware 3.19? Somehow search results in this forum give me nothing.

Edit: Ah, here https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=269574

I had to Google this site, because the internal search gave no results.
