    Custom fonts on the DX

    This is a two part question:

    (sorry if this is not in the appropriate section, feel free to move)

    1) I am currently using Custom Android Font Switcher (which I like because the fonts are all previewed from the selection list), but want to know what other good font changing apps are available as this app is somewhat limited in choices.

    I know that liberty tool box has a ton of fonts, but it is very time consuming to preview the font before installation. Plus not all fonts in the toolbox have a preview.

    2) Is there anyway to change the font size of any given font? It seems like all the fonts I am partial to are very small.

    Thanks for any input.

    Absolute Systems - has fonts, boot animations and few other root tools...but the fonts show a preview and there are probably over 200...

    There is also Font Changer and you can add your fonts to it from dafont.com...

    Thanks for the quick reply. I will check out those two apps.

    Do you know if it's possible to change font size for the entire system?

    Here are screenshots of the 2... font changer is on top, it has an LCD density changer built into it... spare parts (in liberty toolbox & stand alone app in the market) will now change the size but if you rotate your screen it doesn't hold. Absolute systems is the second screenshot... there are varying sizes too so depending if you want to go big or small, you can on the size of the font to.

    Awesome. TY. So I assume the only way to change font size would be through lcd density and not anything like a font size selection like in windows?

    No, I wish...spare parts does that in a way - gives you varying size selections...but no other selection that I know of...

    The spare parts font size will only change system fonts, not fonts in apps or browser, correct?

    I'm not sure what the issue is, but after I change the font size in spare parts & I exit, the font size reverts back to normal size.
