this part is easy, just change the home dir on the sh file: leafpad/bin/leafpad.sh

This is very promising, thank you baf!
I have changed "usr/bin/lipc-set-prop com.lab126.winmgr orientationLock R", but leafpad still starts in portrait mode. Anyone manage to get landscape orientation?
Landscape keyboard in book note-writing mode works quite well with thumbs, the buttons are big enough.

Is it possible to customize the Kindle keyboard? Would be awesome to have ä and ö -letters directly available, without having to long-press a and o.

It will not work in landscape mode. I requires further changes in source. I will add it to my todo list.

As Thomass said it is possible. You just need to edit two files, e.g /usr/share/keyboard/en_US/en_US-600x800.keymap.gz and /usr/share/keyboard/en_US/en_US-800x600.keymap.gz for English layout. Unfortunately it is time consuming, as you need to specify xy coordinates for each key.

Today, several times used Leafpad. Everything works perfectly. Did not find any bug. Landscape mode is useless. (IMHO) Only one small mistake: when you enter the name of the new document is not visible the first letter in the input line.

Yes. These functions are working properly. I have firmware 5.0.0.

Thanks a million, baf! I successfully made my first edit to the keymap (backed up the old one, of course). I hadn't even tried USB network connection before so it took a bit of reading and searching. Will continue tweaking the keymap tomorrow.

I have 5.1.2 on my Touch and only way to use that page is opening a text file. other part of the screen( New Folder, delete, rename, character encoding, etc) has no use at least for my case.

Do not quite understand what do the red lines on your chart. The files are deleted and renamed. But I only worked on this in the "notes", in other places there is no need to do that. For this there is Midnight Commander.

I used these lines as rows to show the areas.

The functions in the red bordered areas works properly. (choosing a text file to open, then clicking cancel or OK, also double tapping) I can use leafpad to edit some other files (like menu.json files, etc) w/o any problem, ie changing the directory also works.

Actually this is not a serious problem, and other part of the app works really great. I can delete the files with XTerm also. I just wanted to report a bug.

@baf: Thanks for the app again.

I confirm it doesn't work. I didn't notice it earlier.
As it is a generic gtk+ dialog, it is more difficult to customise and it stays hidden under main window.
For a quick solution I may hide non-functioning buttons
