Default [MOD][How To] Note3 S-View Clock Font ★New Fonts★ 03/06

Hi Guys/Gals,

Thought I would share this.

When I was looking for a way to change the S-View clock, all information was either for other devices or simply didn't work, see below for a short 'How To'.

Click the images for download links.















Wallpapers can be found here.

To change your S-View cover clock font, it is as simple as choosing your font, renaming it to 'SamsungSans-Num45.ttf' then pushing it to system\fonts. (not quite this simple but this is the guts of it)

One thing before you race off to do it. You have limited space to deal with, so you can't go too crazy (unless you change the dimensions in an XML I cant remember the location of). You can still change the dimensions in the XML if you want a clock that is larger than stock, but then you would need to move everything so there is no overlap.

To get mine perfect I had to modify the font file, changing the metrics, scale and position as well as character spacing. All fonts are different so there is a bit of trial and error to get it just right.

After making a few more, I found for the best results you need to add the "highdef" glyph from the stock font. After you have added and named it correctly you need to move the place markers to a position that varies for each font. For the bottom marker, move it to just below the baseline (very bottom of the font), for the top marker move it to the same distance above the Winascent as between x-height and capheight (this varies).

To save a little space you can delete all characters except: notdef, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, colon and highdef.

Also, make sure your font is unicode, if it is symbol it won't work. Any good font creator/editor should allow you to convert between the formats.

That's it, now you can mix it up if you want and add things like I did with the Mario font (colon).

Installation:

1. Use a custom recovery and simply install the Zip

or

2. Extract the font, push it to system\fonts and set permissions -rw-r--r-- then hot-reboot or reboot.

Uninstall (revert to stock):

Just flash the Stock font zip from here.

If you make any fonts post them here so we can all share.

Enjoy.

Sorry if this has been covered before but I couldn't find the correct information.

PS: This is not the lock-screen clock font this is only for the S-View clock. The lock-screen clock is a set of .png's in an apk (Keyguard if I remember correctly) that you can edit.
If I or anyone else has helped you, press the button, it costs nothing, and to me is better than a donation.

For changing the background as well as other useful stuff check this out. It's an Xposed module with a paid front end.

I would say no, just use CWM, TWRP or any custom recovery variant. Or extract the font file and push it to system\fonts with your favourite root explorer set permissions rw-r-r then reboot and enjoy.
