    Trying to add Helvetica ultra thin but it doesn't seem to recognize it. Anyone got a clue what's going on here? I'm fearing for my sanity over here.

    Have you added the font to var/mobile/Library/MyFonts2?

    Other than respring/restart (which I'm sure you've done) I've got nothing else. Sorry.

    Damn. I really want this font beyond any other fonts I've seen.
    Thanks for trying though.

    What if you just replace the font files for an already installed Bytafont 2 font, with the Helvetica ultra thin files?

    I'll try that! Sounds like a try at least.

    Edit: Didn't work. Just applies the font from the backup. Strangely they're both ticked as if both the backup and the disguised folder are applied.

    My only other thought is to rename the backup folder so it doesn't get applied, if that is indeed what is happening, but it shouldn't be this hard. :confused:

    I don't know that it will work directly downloaded to your phone. You'll have to download to your computer, unzip the zip file then place the .font folder into your MyFonts2 folder.

    I did it before, that's the strange about it.

    I don't know what to tell you. It's a beautiful font. I'm really enjoying it.

    Silly me! I need to zip them in order to dl them to iFile!
    I'll try your folder now.
    For me , Dropbox doesn't work. Speedy share does however.

    Btw, doesn't look like you got helvetica ultra thin on the screenshot you posted.

    Do other fonts work? Maybe your bold switch is on?

    Yes other fonts work as intended.

    That was the culprit!

    Hmmm, that's good to know about the bold. I'll have to tuck that tidbit away FFR.
