Convert to azw3 not mobi. And depending on the firmware version on your kindle to actually see the embedded fonts you might need to toggle a setting named "Use publisher fonts" or similar.

So far the reports on using the ability in Kindle firmware 5.9.6 to sideload fonts have had mixed reports. Some fonts work for KFX, others for KFX and AZW3 while mobi support seems extremely spotty.

I'd suggest converting to AZW3 instead of mobi and see if that allows you to select your sideloaded font.

The sideloaded fonts feature in the new kindle firmware is working well for me. Since I no longer need to have my favorite font embedded in each book, I would like to remove them to decrease the size of the files. I know I can remove the embedded fonts individually from books by using the Edit Book tool... does anyone know of a way to bulk remove embedded fonts from my whole library? Thanks for any suggestions!

The Modify plugin has an option to remove embedded fonts from EPUBs, you can run Modify on multiple books.

I haven't used that option specifically, might be an idea to try it on a handful of books before unleashing it on your entire library.

Thanks for the suggestion!...unfortunately my entire library is AZW3 (grrrrr). Oh well, looks like one at a time. At least I'm in no hurry

Maybe Kovid would be interested in adding a remove embedded fonts to the Polish tool, given it has an embed referenced fonts option. It overlaps Modify and it works on AZW3.

I would suggest that such a tool have an filter, so that it only removes LISTED (configuration) fonts, and leaves any others alone (typ display fonts)

Many of my books have fun dropcap or title fonts. I do not want those gone

OTOH get rid of Charis , I see no advantage over the devices fonts

Polish only has non-destructive operations. Removing embedded fonts does not qualify.

@GoSharks - maybe someone would be interested in making Modify work on AZW3. Suggestion: you could pop the question in the plugin's thread and/or the Plugin ideas sticky.
