Yes, it works for me. I was able to get a monospace font using font-famlily: monospace;

I have Courier Prime as the font in fonts.

Yes, if you don't want to use Courier you should be able to use the new Find: strings from fw 4.19 and your old working custom Replace: strings from 4.18. e.g.
Code:
  - FindReplaceString: {Find: "/normal/Courier", Replace: "/normal/Dark"}
  - FindReplaceString: {Find: "/bold/Courier", Replace: "/bold/Dark"}
  - FindReplaceString: {Find: "/italic/Courier", Replace: "/italic/Dark"}
  - FindReplaceString: {Find: "/bolditalic/Courier", Replace: "/bolditalic/Dark"}
If there are a lot of people voicing concern about the removal of the monospace patch then we can consider putting it back in.
Thanks, jackie_w. And it's the same as the old one in the sense that it's doing prefix matching, right? So if my monospace font name is longer than 7 characters I just put the first 7 into the replace string and it'll get picked up?

I've just tested it. It worked for me, too. In a standard epub, on an unpatched H2O, with sideloaded Courier Prime.

Yes, to the best of my knowledge, that should do the trick.

It can be <=7 chars, but it needs to be enough so that the device can't get confused if you have fontnames with similar prefixes.

Hmmm, thanks to both JSWolf and jackie_w. I'm going to play with this some more and see if I can figure out what's going on. Thanks again.

Here is a link to the Google Fonts page for Courier Prime where you can download it.

There's a bug with the pop-up menus and screen refreshing not working properly near the borders.

need a bit of help please. I'm to a point where I'd like to set up my patch yaml file but I don't see actual patch info here. where do I find the patches that will work with this particular patch? did I miss it somehow? I know at least one I want, but I'd like to see a list like with the patch here for Clara

https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=300125

specifically there are two I would like
remove Kobo stuff/links from home screen
freedom to advanced fonts control

thanks in advance. this is great stuff. thank you all!

All the patches are included in the kobopatch .zip file, there is no need to hunt for the download links of the individual patches. Extract the files from the kobopatch.zip, open the yaml files in the .src folder with Notepad or someting like that, and read the descriptions there. Then enable those you want.
