    I know that font is really nice, it's called Zapfino last one in the list. Only thing in notes it's better to keep a line empty otherwise it get's a little difficult to read. But I love it.

    This will be really cool when the developer implements the code to allow user-added custom fonts.

    No unfortunally you can not reduce the font size. I hope the author of the app will implement this in a future release. Maybe it's possible reduce it manually with the ttf font file. I will try it and post the result here.

    Well in the new version it says not to add more fonts manually, as it may crash the phone. So if you do it be careful. I am sure the author will implement this in a future release.

    Hello! This is my first post on this forum. Yes, FontSwap is mine, as well as the TouchRepo you linked to earlier.

    I'm curious how this happened. Out of all the downloaders, this is the first time I've heard of this happening through the app. I know that if you add in a font yourself without defining it in you font cache file, then you will get a spinning wheel of death.

    I'd like to know your exact steps leading up to this, if you don't mind. Then I can try to duplicate the error.

    The good thing about when errors like this occur they are fixable. In this case, the iPhone doesn't lose WiFi, so you can go in and fix the changes in /System/Library/Fonts/CGFontCache.plist. Usually replacing everything in the "trait mappings" key with everything that is in the /Applications/FontSwap.app/files/traitMapDefs.plist's "trait mappings" key will fix any problem. You may need to reboot after saving the changes.

    Don't add in more fonts yet. Some work, some, for a seemingly random reason cause a spinning wheel of death. Pulling fonts from my mac, I couldn't find any common denominators.

    Then there are the fonts that work some places, but not all. Like Comic Sans MS. It will work in notes andon the lock screen, but if you set it as your system font, it will cause the Spinning Wheel of Death.

    so is comic sans the only one that will cause the spinning wheel of death when you make it the system fonts or are there others? Basically what should we not change for now?

    :edit: i see that comic sans is not on there, so are the fonts on there all safe to change around without any wheels of death?

    Hi SkylarEC,
    First of thank you for this app. I hope you don't mind, me starting this post. I hope you will develop this app further. I noticed that some fonts are displayed to big, is there a way to fix this? Is it possible to reduce the size of the ttf font file. I do have two phones one running 1.1.1 and the other 1.1.3. If you need any help in testing different fonts, I will be glad to help. Thanks again.

    No, Comic Sans is one of the fonts I was testing for the "Add A Font" feature. I am thinking of pulling from different lists for System and Notes, since notes seems to be capable of reading all fonts. And the worst thing that will happen is that notes will refuse to start until you resetthe font.

    Font sizes are set (explicitely, or otherwise) by the application calling them, so there's nothing I can do to change their size. Although, I can change the size that they appear to be in the preview box. That way you can see all of Zapfino, or any other large fonts in the future.

    I outlined a fix for that on the previous page. You do not need to restore. I'm curious though, because try as I might, I can't get my iPhone to get the same error.
