I'd recommend removing Pie as a supported platform. Pie even on Samsungs employ the new overlay signature checks, and such custom fonts cannot be installed on anything but the early beta builds.

I updated my Note 9 to official Pie through OTA and it was working without any issue.

Then freshly did a factory reset and is actually working flawlessly out of the box too.

I'm using it right now with the Gafata font and I even didn't have to reboot the phone for it to work.

I agree with @Nastrahl post above.
I'm also on Official Android 9, (Pie)
Firmware, no root and GxFonts working fine.
Further,
I also did a factory reset of my device and
did not need to reboot device for GxFonts to show.
I have rebooted my device 2 0r 3 times since, no issues.
GxFonts working fine.
This was like 2 days ago.

Indeed on the 9 series Samsung did not enable signature verification for overlays - but on the 8 series (Note8 beta, for example) it is enabled, and most likely it is coming to the 9 series as well.

As such, the OP statement

All the Galaxy devices running "Official Stock Nougat/Oreo/Pie" are supported.

is not exactly correct.

That doesn't seem to be true for me. I'm using a Note 9 on the Pie final release and had no trouble installing fonts using GxFonts just last night.

Emoji support?

Hello there! Really nice work! I'm glad there's not anymore a reason to root my phone haha.
Just one thing about emojis: I'm trying to change them with official EmojiOne TTF for Android, but I get really weird results, such as really big spaces between words and number characters replaced by emojis. I tried with iOS 12 TTF for Android, but got the same results :(
How can I solve it? Do I have to tweak the TTF files manually? Could this tweaks be added to the app in the future?

Have you gotten any closer to figuring this out?

    Awesome efforts! I was dying looking for something like this a while ago. One question, will I be able to combine two different fonts into one. I want this particular font for Chinese characters to go with Google font for English. Thanks

    Do you want to combine two different ttf files into one..?

    Yes. That's exactly what I have been wanting to do. I even paid a guy to get it done, but it didn't come out perfect, which seemed to be a lazy job and I eventually just gave up.

    I don't think that's possible with android platform. You can try using FontForge on windows/mac to get that thing.

    Added support to include Bold/Italics/BoldItalics if available.

    This is a really great app, many thanks.
    Quick question, could we use it to change the emoji style if we had an emoji TTF? Or are the emoji something that can't be changed using this method?

    Will try to add it in next update :good:
