    This is a really great font…clean, easy to read, while still open and humanistic.

    Is there any hope of getting a proper bold for this font pack?

    • The problem is that I couldn’t find a bold version of the font. If you can find one, post the link and I’ll gladly update the pack. This is an issue with a bunch of the fonts – they look great, but no separate ttf file for a bold version.

      edit – actually, the above is the stock answer that applies to most of the fonts with bold issues. The truth about ST Ryde specifically is that only the regular version is free – the bold version is $29 and can be found here. Once you have the ttf file, rename it DroidSans-Bold.ttf (case sensitive). Then open up my fontpack with 7zip, go into the system folder, then go into fonts, and drag the file you just renamed into that open folder overwriting the one that’s there (answer yes when it asks you). Then close out 7zip, move it back to your sdcard and reflash. Bold will be fixed.

        Thanks much for the feedback, fachadick, and for the huge service you are providing to the community with all these fonts.

        Thanks for the ST Ryde link too, I think I’ll give that a go. It also got me thinking, regarding DroidSans-Bold.ttf, could I follow your instructions to substitute any bold font I like into my own customized font pack, and thus display different fonts for bold and regular? It might be fun to mix things up.

    You definately can! I’ve heard of a lot of people using that workaround.
