Kobo readers have options to change some things. I want those things to be so the options work. That means no margins (also good for Kindles), no line height, no embedded fonts (unless there's a really good reason), and to leave the base font size at the default. We can change all of that to what we want. IT's not that I'm looking for a boring book. I'm looking for book's that can be customized as the user wants. You want larger L/R margins or a wider line height, you can have it. But when say L/R margins and a line height are put in, the only choices are to go bigger or leave it be. If they are not what we wat, then we have no choice.

I know we can go into the code and adjust, but we shouldn't have to. We should be able to use the settings as suits us. I'm not asking for a boringly formatted eBook. I'm asking for formatting that allows us to use the settings as we see fit.

I hope not. I prefer ePub overall because the typesetting for ePub is better looking. kepub is not as flexible in that regard.

I've repaired a few by rebuiding the TOC using the calibre TOC editor either in the main interface or in the epub editor.

Regarding oren64's "Increase the view details container size" ... I've been using my own custom version for a while to change the top/bottom split proportions of the Book Details page. It should work for fw 4.16.

If oren64 is no longer maintaining his patch and you're prepared to beta test on behalf of the rest of the kobopatch community, perhaps mine could be used as a suitable replacement in the standard pack.

Increase Book Details synopsis area patch for nickel.yaml
Spoiler:
Code:
Increase Book Details synopsis area:
  - Enabled: no
  - Description: |
      Book details page: 
        Increase height of bottom half (Synopsis) by 
        decreasing height of top half (Cover, Title, Author, Series)

I had finally decided to take the plunge and install 4.16.13337 on my H2O2 when I checked and saw that there's no kobopatch update for it yet. A close call!
