    I downloaded Font Installer and loaded a font on a Galaxy S4 4.3, but I'm not thrilled with it as it only changes fonts in some apps. I prefer uniformity with my fonts, so I want to revert back. And of course I didn't do a Nandroid backup or a backup within the Font app itself. Is there any way to get my stock fonts back and then uninstall this app? I didn't do my reading ahead of time, but had no idea this would be so tricky.

    Find a ROM with the font, pull it out of the zip, and then install it via Font Installer?

    Can you not go into settings and change the font back to one of the original, preinstalled fonts available there?

    There is a font section there on my Verizon branded S4. If you are not satisfied with the ones that are preinstalled, there is a button to get more. Some are free and some are paid.

    Guys, I am rooted. Font installer replaced the system fonts folder. I prefer Samsung sans, but that isn't in font installer. Honestly I'd like to go back to stock and then uninstall the program so that I know it isn't screwing with my system files.

    Any other suggestions?
