It works. Sketchpad and 5 games appear at Beta features (as usual)

First, I would like to thank all of the developers for their great work. Next, I have (I hope...) a simple question. How could I add some additional space between the bottom line of text in the footer and the edge of the screen? For me, it looks like the text "Page xx of xx" (or other similar) is too low and too close to the end of the screen. I have changed min/max footer height values from 52 px to 62 px in the patch (Aura H20 first edition), but I can't notice any change. Thank you in advance for your help.

In the patch, remove a # from one of the line (I marked in red), it will move the caption text upwards.


Code:
...
# Optional Replacement caption top margin value for all devices:
# (A negative top margin moves the caption text upwards,
# further from the bezel and closer to the page content.)
#
#replace_string = 00FA, `margin-top:+00px`, `margin-top:-15px`
#replace_string = 00FA, `margin-top:+00px`, `margin-top:-05px`
#
#
...

Yes. It's not about compatibility, it's just that Kobo uses CSS to hide the games on certain devices.

A big thank you to all involved! GeoffR and oren64!

Maybe this is the patch that brings the most peoplw to the patch side of the force. It totally broke the ability of my Koko Touch C to read ePubs. Thanks to the patch I was able to read them again and in the process tweak a lot of things that were annoyances for me on the kobo interface.

I am only sorry that I missed out on the best PDF tweaks. But I hope they come back arround.

Patch `Wikipedia Search language`

libnickel.so.1.0.0.patch

The patch set the search language in Wikipedia.
Replace the "en" (in both the replace_string lines) to the language code you want. For example English is "en" (set as default), for German is "de", for Russian is "ru".

Spoiler:
Code:
<Patch>
patch_name = `Wikipedia Search language`
patch_enable = `yes`

find_base_address = `\0https://%1.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Search\0`

Thank you Oren!

I just patched my device yesterday, but out of dumbness deleted all the patch scripts and didn't took note on which patchs I activated.

My questions are: Is there a way to find out from the device witch patches I'm using for sure or am I out of luck and will have to go on educated guesses?
And: If I go and use just this one wikipedia patch all the already used ones will revert to the initial stages, won't them?

Not that I know of.

In this patcher attachment all patches are set as disable, so if you enable only the wikipedia patch , all patches in your device will not be implemented.

Completely off-topic, but I was jolted that right to left in Hebrew doesn't apply to numbers, or at least treats numbers as a whole, not digit by digit. I assume words still are right to left character by character, but what do I know.
