    Default How to add downloaded fonts to BytaFont

    Hello all,
    I was wondering if anyone knew how to add a downloaded font from my Mac to my iPhone to use with BytaFont.

    Here's what I've noticed:
    1) Each .font folder in BytaFont have staple fonts: Georgia, Helvetica, LockClock, and a couple others. ALL folders have these .ttf files in them but I don't see the actual [font].ttf file in them. I don't know if the font is embedded in the folder or what.
    2) BytaFont will not allow a font to be selected UNLESS it has those staple font files in the folder.
    3) If I copy and paste the staple font files into the [font].font folder I'm trying to add, it will appear as the font which I copied the staple folders from.

    I'm completely lost on what else I could possible do to just simply get the MarkerFelt font able to be used in BytaFont!

    If anyone has some pointers, or a solution, please let me know!

    I don't understand where I'm supposed to get those fonts that need to be in the folder, because if I copy and paste from another font folder then it will look like the font I copied from.

    I take it to mean that you should copy the fonts that YOU want into that particular folder, but I could be wrong. My devices are not jailbroken and I know little to nothing about jailbreaking. Sorry.

    You would add the fonts (ttf files) to the myfonts folder. See image. How to add downloaded fonts to BytaFont-imageuploadedbytapatalk1367065531.908072.jpg
