geek1011,
for some reason I can’t change the font size in the headers, I tried various tags, for example:
Code:
@ information
& informátion
::
<html>
<div style="font-size:x-large">informátion</div>
there are no problems with the rest (color, weight), but the font size does not work (is it hard-coded somewhere?).

It is overridden by nickel. You need to use !important.

So I did it right away
Code:
style="font-size:120% !important;"
and there was no result.

Before, when I used Penelop to create the Traditional Chinese dictionaries with more than 100,000 headwords which then generate more than 80,000 html files in the zip file. The zip file then failed to be recognized by Kobo. I also tried to set "--group-by-prefix-length=1", the number of html file dropped to about 11,000 but it did not work either.
I wonder if this dictgen can solve this problem.

Here is the error:
"Copying dictzip.
Wrote dictzip to "F:.kobo\\dict\\dicthtml-zh.zip".
Updating ExtraLocales.
Adding locale "zh" to ExtraLocales.
Updating database.
Error: update database: update database: no such table: Dictionary.
Press any key to continue . . ."

I don't why the Dictionary table in KoboReader.sqlite file is disappeared. Can anyone help? Thanks.

You need to update dictutil to the latest version.

Can you explain to me how to use dictutil-windows.exe to copy a personal dictionary? Nothing happens when running this exe, no UI?
Do I need to change the following name dicthtml-enCONVERSION-PENELOPE-ROBERT2007.zip?
I'm using W10 x64

Yes. You can either name it dicthtml-whatever.zip and use it with "dictutil install dicthtml-whatever.zip", or you can use a command like "dictutil install -l whatever dicthtml-enCONVERSION*.zip".

I must have really missed a step...
I put the dictutil-windows.exe files and my dictionary to install in the same folder. I opened a prompt command in this folder to use the dictutil command

Dictutil' is not recognized as an internal command.
or external, an executable program or a command file.

Oh, yes, you're on Windows. Anytime I mention "dictutil ", use "dictutil-windows.exe " instead.

Okay, you got me back on track.
Unfortunately, I'm getting an error message.

If you are not replacing a built-in dictionary, the 'Enable searches on extra
dictionaries patch' must be installed, or you will not be able to select
your custom dictionary.
I thought the Allow searches on Extra dictionaries: yes line (kobopatch.yaml) would do the trick...

I used dictutil (Windows, I am not able to to understand how it works on Linux) to insert the dictionary I want instead of the standard dictionary but after synchronization I had again the standard dictionary. Before it I tried to give the read only flag, both Linux and Windows but it did not work.

May be something is changed in firmware? Or I am doing something wrong? But the dictutil told me that it was OK

Code:
C:\Users\paolo\Desktop\Dizionario-italiano\Kobo> dictutil-windows.exe install dicthtml-it.zip
Found Kobo eReader at "F:" with firmware version 4.20.14622.
Installing dictzip "dicthtml-it.zip" (locale: it) as "dicthtml-it.zip" (overwriting_builtin: true) with label "Italiano".

Copying dictzip.
  Note: firmware version >= 4.20.14601, so using new method for preventing nickel from overwriting dictionaries.
  Wrote dictzip to "F:.kobo\\dict\\dicthtml-it.zip".
Updating ExtraLocales.
  No need; replacing built-in dictionary.
Updating database.
  Note: the dictionary table is unnecessary and inconsequential in firmware 4.20.14601+ and can be safely removed.
  Note: The dictionary table is unnecessary and inconsequential in firmware 4.20.14601+ and can be safely removed.
  Added row to database: Suffix="-it" Name="Italiano" Installed="true" Size=13680662 IsSynced="false".

Successfully installed dictzip "dicthtml-it.zip" to Kobo "F:".

Can you enable the `sync` category for logging in developer options, install the dictionary, perform a sync, and send me the log files (specifically the part about the dictionary sync command)? It should contain a line like "dicthtml... marked as read-only.. skipping".

Also, after running dictutil, see if the read-only checkbox is set in the file properties.
