  14. Hi Govind

    I really appreciate you educating we non-so-in-depth-technical-guys for MIUI 8.

    I have bought Mi Max just a week back. Really liked few features and some of them not. I was really annoyed with their double-lining-hollow-in-between font, which is generally used for selected one and for displaying numbers in text messages as well. It is not too much readable. I hate this font from the time, I first saw them on my wife’s phone Lenovo K3 Note.

    Browsing for changing font, reached your this website and got to learn some useful things. But on my phone FONT SETTING was not there.

    I just want to change double-lining-hollow-in-between font. Please guide.

  15. I Didn’t receive confirmation mail of verification done after applying for individual designer 3 Days Gone…
    what to do now…?

  16. Wow thanks for this good information.. i did it and also i got a mail regarding d issue .. successfully applied my best font..

  17. Hi Abhinav I tried all the options above. 402 error is not coming but when i click on apply it says cant apply theme and stucks at “applying 0%”

  18. OMG, thank you so much for your detailed explanation. Really appreciate. I just changed my font!!!! Im using Xiaomi Note 3!! Thank you once again..

    1. Hi Anjan,
      Thanks for writing here. Now you don’t need to apply for Xiaomi designer account. Just open theme manager in your Mi phone. and tap on fonts option and download your desired font and apply on system.
      Kind Regards

  19. I followed the step accordingly. I already register for Xiaomi Designer account. Until now, i didn’t receive any confirmation mail for verification. Almost one week.
    Please help.
