Just flash my S4 to Kitkat but I can't seem to find where the font style settings are?

Where is it?

If you're using a non Samsung ROM, which is likely since there is no Samsung release for 4.4 yet then you won't that option on an AOSP based ROM. It is a Samsung 'feature'.

Amazing just how many of the features I love are implemented by Samsung, not Google. Flipfont support is one of those.

if you are on a custom rom anyway, then there are plenty of font choosing apps. Mostly they require root I think, but a simple check in the play store should find them.

Try Vultr using this link and get us both some credit:

Nothing in the font space beats installing an apk & ticking a box without rebooting. ;)

Shame there seems to be a new implementation of flipfonts in 4.2+, so all of my old custom packages no longer work.
