    how can I set it to scan other fonts of my sd card? For example I wanna use the fonts from picsin on my widget, is this possible. I tried the whole global settings thing and it still shows the 4 original fonts.

    1. Create new folder on sd card called 'fonts.' Make sure there are no subfolders within it - just the actual true type font files.
    2. Pick folder 'font,' not specific sub font, in the global settings for font selection.
    3. Under each text type on each widget - normal, accented, nonaccented - you must select the font, the list should populate when you do as above.

    I t would be easier to connect you phone to your PC and creat the folder and drop and drag any fonts you want

    Wow, good to know. So all True Type Windows fonts work in Android?
