Something a little odd with the new RK fonts. I have Rakuten Serif selected, as shown in image 1, but when I click on the "Advanced" tab, the font changes, as in image 2. I have to select Rakuten Serif. Does anyone know why this might be happening?

Since they were so kind, some info on the new fonts (via fontdrop.info):

Rakuten Serif v3.000
  • Designer: Dalton Maag Ltd
  • 101 Languages: Belarusian Bosnian Bulgarian Chechen Macedonian Russian Serbian Afrikaans Albanian Asturian Asu Basque Bemba Bena Breton Catalan Chiga Colognian Cornish Croatian Czech Danish Dutch Embu English Estonian Faroese Filipino Finnish French Friulian Galician Ganda German Gusii Hungarian Inari Sami Indonesian Irish Italian Jola-Fonyi Kabuverdianu Kalaallisut Kalenjin Kamba Kikuyu Kinyarwanda Latvian Lithuanian Lower Sorbian Luo Luxembourgish Luyia Machame Makhuwa-Meetto Makonde Malagasy Maltese Manx Meru Morisyen Northern Sami North Ndebele Norwegian Bokmål Norwegian Nynorsk Nyankole Oromo Polish Portuguese Quechua Romanian Romansh Rombo Rundi Rwa Samburu Sango Sangu Scottish Gaelic Sena Serbian Shambala Shona Slovak Soga Somali Spanish Swahili Swedish Swiss German Taita Teso Turkish Upper Sorbian Uzbek (Latin) Volapük Vunjo Walser Welsh Western Frisian Zulu
  • 678 glyphs and 502 binary stored kerning pairs
  • 0 Ligatures

Rakuten Sans v.2.200
  • Designer: Dalton Maag Ltd
  • 101 Languages: Belarusian Bosnian Bulgarian Chechen Macedonian Russian Serbian Afrikaans Albanian Asturian Asu Basque Bemba Bena Breton Catalan Chiga Colognian Cornish Croatian Czech Danish Dutch Embu English Estonian Faroese Filipino Finnish French Friulian Galician Ganda German Gusii Hungarian Inari Sami Indonesian Irish Italian Jola-Fonyi Kabuverdianu Kalaallisut Kalenjin Kamba Kikuyu Kinyarwanda Latvian Lithuanian Lower Sorbian Luo Luxembourgish Luyia Machame Makhuwa-Meetto Makonde Malagasy Maltese Manx Meru Morisyen Northern Sami North Ndebele Norwegian Bokmål Norwegian Nynorsk Nyankole Oromo Polish Portuguese Quechua Romanian Romansh Rombo Rundi Rwa Samburu Sango Sangu Scottish Gaelic Sena Serbian Shambala Shona Slovak Soga Somali Spanish Swahili Swedish Swiss German Taita Teso Turkish Upper Sorbian Uzbek (Latin) Volapük Vunjo Walser Welsh Western Frisian Zulu
  • 687 glyphs and 502 binary stored kerning pairs
  • 40 Ligatures

Weird that Rakuten Serif has no ligatures but Rakuten Sans does. Although that might be a bug with fontdrop too as maybe the Small Figures feature of Rakuten Serif Regular is throwing things off (scanning the Bold version shows 44 ligatures and no Small Figures, so I'm leaning towards fontdrop bug, I think. Either that, or there really is something wrong with the Regular version of the font).

It'll be nice to see the new fonts on the reader, but I like many others will be waiting for patches. 4.33 runs well enough for my Sage and uses.

The Sage is notorious for its poor battery life.

And the Sage kernel wasn't updated (unless I'm misremembering the date of the current build) ;p.

(The Elipsa was, though).

That's what I meant. Is this intended just to fix the Sage, or will it have implications for other models, too?

Sage and Elipsa are the two models that come to mind as the likely culprits.

I just updated my Libra 2 and patched the fw with geek1101's patches.

The fonts work fine on my Libra 2. I tested it immediately after the update to see if I can replicate what you experienced.


BTW, the fonts look like this: https://global.rakuten.com/corp/desi...ets/img/kv.svg

I took a look at Rakuten Serif with FontForge and it does show ligatures.
