Update Settings for FBReader 0.8.14

In a separate post to Integrated FBReader 0.8.14 with ePub and Registry Support I provided a utility to modify the registry to add .zip and .oebzip as FBReader 0.8.14 file extensions. This provides a simple way to override the iLiad's standard file handling. For example, to use FBReader for a DRM-free .prc file, just put the MOBI file by itself in a .zip file and it will be opened automatically by FBReader.

A disadvantage of the Integrated FBReader is that its settings can't easily be changed. So the attached application allows you to replace the standard ui.xml with a new one. Invoking this application will copy its ui.xml into FBReader's registry. This is completely safe, if the settings are bad - just copy back the original ui.xml and all will be well again.

The screenshots show the original setup and the setup provided by the example ui.xml (as usual, you may have to click twice for your browser to display full sized images). I increased the default font size, added left justification and auto hypenation, removed the clock, and made the indicator at the bottom bigger. EDIT: minor change to make the progress bar taller now included. If it were any taller, one line of text would be lost.

Use any text editor (that maintains Linux line breaks) to change ui.xml. If you find a change you like, post the ui.xml file for others to try.
