Can't wait till you get around to the dictionaries patch! But I'm thinking you knew that already.

@ixtab: Thanks, you have answered the very questions, I was unsure at.

And I have to express my utmost admiration. Using this JBPatch my PW now able to properly hyphenate Hungarian language docs, which is far from trivial, at the minimum. Practically it was the Holy Grail for many publishers, who were using this reason, the missing hyphenation (among others of course), to avoid entering the ebook scene.

[KPW] Customize reader font sizes

... another patch for the Paperwhite.

This one comes as a standalone patch. To install it:
1. download the attached file and rename it to "com.mobileread.ixtab.patch.fontsize.jar" - i.e., don't unzip it, just change the file extension from .zip to .jar
2. Copy the .jar file to the opt/jbpatch directory on the Paperwhite
3. Restart the framework. The fastest way is to use the "Restart framework" button from the "System" tab of the JBPatch UI.

And... just a friendly reminder: You will also need to restart the UI after changing the font settings, to actually experience the changed settings. This goes for (almost) all patch settings.

I'm roughly following the priorities from this thread for porting the patches to the Paperwhite - roughly, because some patches require significantly more work than others to be ported, and I'm starting with the easier ones.

PS: Those patches will most probably all be released as standalone patches, until - at some point - everything will be bundled back together into JBPatch 3.1.0 or so.

EDIT: I just noticed something odd with this patch, and it seems to be reproducible. For instance, I've set the font sizes to <7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14>. In the "Aa" menu, the leftmost (7) and rightmost two (13,14) settings "work" as intended, but the ones in the middle act strange. Your device may actually select a different font size than what you tapped on. It's hard to explain, but for instance tapping on the 6th item will select the 8th, the 5th will select the 7th, etc. You actually can select all entries, but you may need to tap somewhere to the left of it to do so. Ah well, one more Paperwhite quirk.

Anyway: please don't report this as a bug, I already know about it. I might look into the issue at some point in time, but don't hold your breath. After all, it's just a UI quirk, the patch as such is working and usable when working around that quirk.

EDIT: Attachment removed. This patch is bundled with JBPatch 3.1.0.

Thank you ixtab.

Just a note on installation order: It works to copy com.mobileread.ixtab.patch.fontsize.jar to the PW before installing JBPatch. This way it saves one restart.

I restarted the frameworks, and restarted the kindle several times but does not change.

Press the name of the patch in the "overview" tab. The "patch" tab will open automatically showing the options.

Yep, that certainly does work. It's just not the "normal" installation order

Well for me it was, as my PW is brand new. So I went:
update to 5.3.1
install jailbreak
install com.mobileread.ixtab.patch.fontsize.jar
install jbpatch
--- fail -
install kindlet jailbreak

all good

I never got 5.3.1 update! I put the PW on-line and nothing happened. I have had my PW for a month now.

Guess I had better read this whole long thread to see what all of this does for your PW.

For the Kindle Paperwhite, only one patch is currently available - but that is the single most useful patch (IMO), namely the reader adjustment and hyphenation one. Finally, the book layout isn't an eyesore anymore... I intend to use the Paperwhite to actually read on it during the upcoming holidays, so this was really just pure selfishness
Thank you, I was waiting for this. I have sent you a beer :P

Strange thing happened.

I changed the extension from zip to jar, copied the file to the desired location and started JBpatch to restart the framework. But jb pach wont start, and after a few seconds I got an "application error" popup. I restarted the PW manually, but nothing changed, same error or Jbpatch launch. I deleted the fontsize hack, than JB patch started flawlessly. But here the strange thing. Even if the jar is deleted, I have the "modify screen font sizes" patch in the list, I could even modify font sizes.
