Kobo Touch update has broken Calibre created top margin

The Kobo Touch has a deep plastic frame which often casts a shadow on the first line of each page in most indoor lighting conditions. I successfully overcame this by using Calibre converted and setting the top margin from 5 to 10 pts. I am using Calibre 0.8.42.

Yesterday I sync'ed my Kobo Touch and installed update 1.9.17 (r37603, 3/16/12). Now all of my books are back to the default top margin. Even new downloads (that I have converted) ignore the margin set in Calibre.

This is a minor gripe. I just thought I would flag this to any Calibre developers who may be maintaining the margin controls or the Kobo Touch interface.

It may be beyond Calibre's control if Kobo is now ignoring Body margins (those are the ones that are being set Device output Profile Margins) when you adjust the ones shown on the Common Options: 'Page Setup'

Check that Preference to see if something went bump

Thank you for the information; changing the margins in Calibre did work for my Kobo Touch (I had to reconvert all my epubs). The lack of a top margin was driving me nuts.

I have just installed Kobo Touch firmware 2.0.0 which has fixed this issue.

Hey, a company that actually listens to its customers. FANTASTIC!
