Summary of Modified Fonts

ADE displays no differently with the two font versions. So there's no need for renaming them. Also, if I was to have a need to update for any reason, this ZIP file would be obsolete and there would be no way I could change it. As it is now, eventually, I'll have all the Mediafire links I posted fixed to the current one.
This is a Kobo forum and I was addressing an issue with the way a Kobo device handles fonts. I really don't care what ADE on my Windows or Mac machine displays especially given the sheer joy of changing fonts within ADE but on the Kobo, I need the font files correctly named. Hence, the posting of that .zip file with the changed font file names to save others the fun of opening the font file to find the correct name and then renaming the font file with the name and style. For instance, your modification of the Charis SIL no longer uses Charis SIL2 as the font name but rather Charis SIL Modified which needed to be reflected in the font file name. I could use the shorted style (b, i, r, z) but prefer the full style. The names I used for your modified Charis SIL files are:

Charis SIL Modified-Regular.ttf
Charis SIL Modified-Bold.ttf
Charis SIL Modified-BoldItalic.ttf
Charis SIL Modified-Italic.ttf

Charis SIL SmCp Modified-Regular.ttf
Charis SIL SmCp Modified-Bold.ttf
Charis SIL SmCp Modified-BoldItalic.ttf
Charis SIL SmCp Modified-Italic.ttf

Charis SIL Compact-Regular.ttf
Charis SIL Compact-Bold.ttf
Charis SIL Compact-BoldItalic.ttf
Charis SIL Compact-Italic.ttf

Charis SIL SmCp Compact-Regular.ttf
Charis SIL SmCp Compact-Bold.ttf
Charis SIL SmCp Compact-BoldItalic.ttf
Charis SIL SmCp Compact-Italic.ttf

David

I have a new set of Charis SIL that have had the metrics changed to make it larger. It's in beta until Monday and if nobody says there's a problem with it, I'm going to release it. Someone else has asked for a lighter version and I'll be working on that next week.

With all the fonts people are modifying, I thought it might help to get them at least listed in one post.
Thanks PeterT, what a great idea and thread.

One question, how do I open rar files etc? My computer doesn't seem to recognise them.

If you are using a Windows computer, try 7-Zip. It understands most of the compressed formats out there. Non-Windows, I don't know what to suggest.

For Mac's looks like RAR Expander would be a good option --> http://rarexpander.sourceforge.net/index.html

As David said for Windows 7-Zip --> http://www.7-zip.org/

As others have mentioned, 7-zip or IZ Arc are good options for Windows.

For the Mac, hands down the best option is The Unarchiver, available on the web or on the Mac App Store.

How cool, thanks guys. I really appreciate that. 7-Zip works fantastic and I was able to get the font I was hoping for. Can't wait to see how it looks on my Glo

I have a larger Modified version of Charis SIL.

If anyone wants to give it a try and let me know how it works with the Kobo, I'd appreciate it.
