While the FONT_RAMP settings will be ignored for KFX files - which means you cannot fiddle with font sizes - the advanced typesetting features will be available when using KFX.

The main advantage I see is page flip (preview of surrounding pages without losing the reading position), plus intelligent font-size improvements and enhanced text-align features. Which pretty much makes the FONT_RAMP adjustment obsolete unless you prefer really tiny or extraordinarily huge font sizes.

The downside is that x-ray is - for now - unusable. Even if you manage to pull a working x-ray file, the positioning is off and the highlighted aliases are not in sync with the acutal text. While still being correct in general, x-ray simply points to the wrong position. But since goodreads is the only decent source right now, x-rays nowadays do not contain so much useful information anyway although it's still nice to have.
