how do mere mortals install fonts?

The instructions I found say to copy the font files to \system\fonts but when I connect the PocketBook to my Windows PC there is no system folder when I use the Windows File Explorer (the usual gui thing).

So I had a brainstorm and opened a command prompt and walla, I can cd into that directory. And copy the font files into it. But how would ordinary people figure this out?

This problem is covered in their FAQ. Since it's more of a Windows problem than a device problem, that's probably the best they can do.

Ok, thanks. I didn't see the FAQ; where is it?

It looks like they are messing with the website. The FAQ for the Inkpad3 didn't have much in it, but the one for the Inkpad 1 covers the missing system folder: https://www.pocketbook-int.com/us/su...ketbook-inkpad

Thanks. I should have thought of the setting for having hidden folders not shown in Windows.
