The way I do this is to use the navigation bar to skip to the next chapter. The page number is displayed in the bar and then press the return button to go back to where I was.

Configurable home screen
I want to read books, nothing more. Sadly, books do not take up even most of the home screen. I'd like a setting that removes all social, web and shop features from the home screen and features more of "my" books instead.
The tiled home screen adapts and only shows what you use. The other options will disappear. You can prevent them from displaying with my Kobo Utilities plugin for calibre.

Support for own dictionaries
The choice of dictionaries is extremely limited. I know that it is (used to be?) possible in principle to exchange, say, Spanish files for Swedish ones, but that's not really user-friendly. Please implement a mechanism for dictionaries that is similar to fonts, i.e. "put it there and you can use it".
Yes, that would be good. When Kobo changed how dictionaries were handled, I was expecting them to start selling extra or better dictionaries.
