Hi community,
is there any way to get the Helvetica font on our device?
For example with a .ttf file + font changer?
All characters working?

It's much easier to implement a font taken from another ROM. For example I'm using segoe wp on endymion, which is a font from windows phone 7. If you want something like that, search the forums, it's already somewhere.
But I would also like to know if there's any way to import a font with for example an .ttf file

Not sure what you talking about. In endy control center there is no option to change the font.
And since I'm using segeo wp on the whole system I cannot say what font the control center has by default.

Where did you get Segeo WP?

BTW: You can, when you launch Theme Manager there's an option to change fonts!

When you download a font linked by dan-fish (I'm using those too) you'll get a flashable zip. after unzip the file, there is one folder "fonts" with some simple .ttf Files and one folder "meta-inf" with scripts and files I do not know about.
Maybe its possible to replace the .ttf files with some from helvetica (regular, bold etc.). But I don't know if there are also other changes in scripts etc. needed.

I found this:

Not sure if i'm allowed to post it though. Use it with font changer from the market and it should work. I can't guarantee it though.
