I have been trying the Set reader font option and it does not seem to work right for me.

I changed the line spacing from 1 to 2 and the line spacing actually got tighter although the slider position was increased about 25%.

The dialogue box shows it as 2 when it pops up and as 7 when I click get configuration settings. The custom settings show it as 1.07 but the lines are almost touching now on the reader.

I was thinking one box was for slider position, but I only get 8 and the get functions show it as 7 where it is only at the second or third so I must be wrong on that.

Tried another book and the line spacing changed although it does not seem to be what I wanted, probably I am not understanding. Also the font became really small and the margins negative. Just me being stupid I imagine.

Long detailed step by step

Spoiler:
Having some odd problems.

Last week I ran the Kobo Utilities plugin store/restore to update my finished books. Then I added 3 books.

After ejecting my home screen was changed.
A book I had finished was/is in the top left corner replacing the one I was reading.
The book I was reading was marked unread.
The sleep cover was from my last book finished.
Both the shelf list and the collection lists still existed.

I chalked it up to weird things my HD does to confuse and amaze me.

Today I was reading the font thread and saw the options to change font settings and of course I had to plug in my Aura HD as that sounds interesting.

I plugged it in, waited for the jobs to stop, switched to device view, selected a book, clicked Set Reader Font.
Boxes read Georgia, 22, 0, off, custom settings checked,1.3,lock margins unchecked, 3, update config unchecked.

I unchecked custom settings and it went to greyed out 1. Clicked get configuration and margins both changed to 4 and font size changed to 32. Same with
The get configuration button showed it as 7 in the box shows it as 1.07

Clicked Get settings, no change.

I wanted to look at the book on the device, so I hit cancel and ejected the device.

Everything looked the same on the home screen.
Went to collections and it said there were no collections.
Went to book list and no books.
Plugged reader in thinking calibre would fix this.
Calibre got list of books, and showed collections and reading status in device view.
Sent metadata.
Ejected and unplugged.
No collections/books on device according to Aura Hd.
Went back to home screen.
Hit a collection icon. No collections page again.
Hit the top left book, No books.
Turned it off, blank sleep cover.
Plugged in reader and it said was connected and charging. Computer didn't see it. Tried 3 more times. Rebooted computer. Still wouldn't recognize reader.

Rebooted Aura HD. Reboot took seconds, which seemed strange as it usually takes a while, and all the books/collections were back and it would connect to the computer. But same thing happened again after set font daialogue

Helen: I don't know what's happening with using the set reader font options and the seeming loss of the database on the device. Because of this and other font discussions, I spent a bit of time using it yesterday without any problems. If you are willing to risk it again, could you run calibre in debug mode and post or send me the log? Maybe I'll be able to see what is happening.

For the controls on the dialog, the only thing I can say is . I had hard-coded the number of values in the line spacing spin button and that didn't match how many the firmware now has. That meant if the line spacing was set to 2 (the ninth stop on the slider) or higher and you retrieved the configuration, what was displayed was inconsistent. I'll have a fix out for that later today.

As to the negative margins, I don't know what is happening. If I set negatives in the database or config file, they seem to be treated as zero margins. Unless it is an interaction with a setting in the book.
