And the other thing, it means every eBook that's being opened will have to have the font size adjusted. If the patch worked the way it originally did, then nobody will have to change font sizes.
What? I have the current patch enabled on both the Sage and the Libra and certainly don't have to adjust font sizes when opening a new book.

I made a typo and left out a word. I meant for books that were previously opened. All of those books will need the font slider adjusted and not just a few pushes of the +. And if you just start with a new book after patching, that one will also have to have the font size adjusted. This goes for both ePub and KePub because the previous patch adjusted the KePub size to match ePub. Now it's reversed and that means none of the previously opened books are at the correct font size.

If the patch worked the same as it did before, then no books would need to have the font size adjusted,.

If the patch were changed again, that would mean all the people who have been using the current version for the past two months will have to adjust the font size when opening a previously opened book.

I have no plans to change it. As I said, if you want a larger range of bigger sizes, adjust the minimum sizes in the Custom font sizes patch.

The epub font sizes have broken DPI handling on some devices, and so needs to be fixed anyway, so it's easier to set it all for epubs and not touch the kepub settings.

If some patches are already installed and I want to add more later, must I enable the old patches again too in the yaml file when enabling the new ones?

You already have the patches you've applied enabled. You just have to enable the patches want to add and go.

Patch suggestions: Have "Search in book" in the same menu as "Highlight". Basically, as it is, you click on a word and you have the options "Highlight", "Add Note" and "Search". Then, if you click "Search", you can "Search in book". that is too many clicks for me. I'd prefer to have "Search in book" right in the first menu.

Would this be possible/easy?

Now that 4.31 has been released, I'd forget enabling the patches you want for 4.30 and do this for 4.31. The patches for 4.31 have also been released. If you use NickelMenu, that's also been updated for 4.31.

I just tried to install the patches for 4.30, as I've downgraded from 4.31 due to database corruption issues that may be firmware related. When I run kobopatch.bat, it gives an error that it can't find the 4.31 firmware file, but surely it should be looking for the 4.30 firmware file. Have I done something wrong somewhere?

Just to be sure I redownloaded the Kobopatch 4.30 installation zip file and tried again - same error.

You have to also download the 4.30 patches from the first post in this thread.

Sorry, my fault. I had downloaded the right files, but the problem was that I then copied over the whole of my kobopatch.yaml file from the 4.31 patching, rather than just the overrides. Doh!

You would need to ensure both the already installed patches and the patches you want to add are enabled. Otherwise the generated file will not have the previously selected patches and they will be removed.

If you wanted to remove all patches, simply generate the patch file will all patches disabled.

EDIT: never mind, I found the updated instructions in the 4.31 thread.

Help please? I'm trying to do this for the first time, and I'm using a Mac (MacOS 12.2.1, M1 chip). When I try to run kobopatch.sh in terminal, I get a popup window informing me that
Quote:
"kobopatch-darwin-64bit" cannot be opened because the developer cannot be verified.
I know how to bypass this if I'm just using the Finder, but I don't know how to do that in Terminal.
