I wish that swiping would work on _any_ screen content that is subdivided into pages.

At the moment, there are some screens where you can swipe to turn pages and others where there are page turn buttons.

This is simply not consistent and cumbersome...

I would love to have a PIN to unlock the reader. My 11 years old son should not be able to get in touch with books designed for adults as easily as it´s possible with kobo glo.
This was one of the well-thought features of my former Sony PRS-T1

One feature I'd like to see is support for the opf:file-as attribute in author metadata.

First, I would like the underline function to work properly, not nearly at random as it does now (Kobo Touch Mark 3).

Static IP Configuration

C'mon Kobo!! Really! Just bought my first eReader today, the Kobo Aura HD and to my surprise it is not compatible with WiFi Static IP network...seriously! I got in touch with Kobo Help chat and they confirmed that I wasn't losing my mind...yes this "feature" is not available...hahahahahahaha EPIC FAIL.

Going back to the store to return first thing in the morning. Sad sad sad...

To all of you who would say just run a DHCP network that is not a valid argument. Many many people require a static IP network for many reasons. I'm not asking for the world here, just expecting something released in 2013 would have pre-2000 LAN settings available on it. Geeze.

I would like to have simpler page turns for PDF's that are zoomed in. As it is now, I have to first swipe left to find the next page button, then push that to get to the next page, and then re-center the page to continue reading...

Ideally, for consistency, the normal 3 zones should be kept for zoomed-in PDF's as well: left region -> previous page, mid region -> menu, right region -> next page. As it is now, no matter where I touch the page of a zoomed-in PDF I get the menu.

I'd just like to have the annotations list show up in some kind of order. Knowing what chapters they're in would be nice, too.

(More info: I was proofreading a book on my Glo, using annotations to mark errors. I foolishly expected to be able to pull up the annotations list, have it be in order, and use that to quickly fix the problems. Didn't quite work that way...)

Customization of sleep and turn off screens - add texts and/or date and time and choose the position on screen of custom text. Also, possibility to add sketchpad pictures to turned off and sleep screens.

I would like profiles, so several persons can use the Aura HD with their own preferences (fonts, light, reading progression, etc). Then you would be able to switch from one profile to another. It is very annoying to have to set back all the time the reading parameters.

IPv6 support is really necessary, now. Easy to activate in the kernel compilation, transparent for the user, and solve a lot of network problems.
