Default minimalistic text font change

I asked this question else where on this site and still can't get a descent answer...is it possible to change the font on the minimalistic app to any besides the default ones already included? I have go laucher ex and it scans my phone and lets me use fonts from pulse and picsin. is this somehow possible with this app and if so how can I do it? I tried global settings and that didn't do anything.

Just open minimalistic text and hit the menu button and choose global settings, scroll down to "font folder" and tell it where to look. I use Absolute System so I just go to the "goodies" folder and choose what ever font I want to use.

No, you don't have to have a font folder (although, if you want to create one you can.) In Minimalistic Text under Global Settings it says "Fonts Folder" and you can click on that and tell it where to look for fonts.


That's why I said I tell it to look in the "goodies" folder because that's where Absolute System keeps my dl'd fonts.


If you're not rooted just use a file explorer program and create a folder called "fonts" and put your fonts in there.

Check out dafont dot com. There's some pretty nice fonts there.
