Hi Joerch,
        the settings are saved in the file /.rockbox/viewers/viewer.dat ,
one line per file. Be careful editing this, though, because it 'seems' to
be a text file, but for maximum access speed the field widths are fixed.
This means, if you by chance add an extra space, the settings for that
file are lost.

This is also in my todo list. However, currently rockbox supports only two
fonts, and one is the fixed pitch default (this is to reduce memory
footprint on some Archos devices, I believe). Until this is extended, I
can't "load" or use an extra font besides these 2.
