Thanks, that mod looks awesome. Has anyone tried this with the Aura at 2.8.1?

I just tried it on AUra, only patch activated was
patch_name = `Minimize reading footer`
and it worked like a charme, took about two minutes, download, configure, patch, done.
very nice!

I've installed the 04 version without changing anything, but even though the page number is super tiny now it seems like every second page (or several pages in a row) in my epubs still has the normal/larger footer margin.
How do I go about adjusting the footer margin size manually?

I'd suspect that you are running into the widows/orphans issues. In the old days when dead trees were king, leaving 1 or 2 lines at the bottom of page (orphans) or at the top of a page (widows) was considered ugly. So lines were moved from the bottom on one page to the top of the other to keep that from happening. If you set widows: 0; and orphans: 0; in the epub's css stylesheet, this will disable this behaviour. There have been many discussions about how to do this. The easiest for most people is to use Calibre to handle the modification. Again quite a few discussions about this. A search for Extra CSS and Calibre will pull up a few. The last one I posted was http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho....php?p=2591364

Regards,
David

Thanks for that. Yeah I found the widow orphan calibre CSS settings after I posted, thought I would have to delete and convert and retransfer my library but apparently it's not necessary with the latest version of calibre.

Edit: Also just realised that another reason for my inconsistent gaps were probably the spacing between the paragraphs.
