Someone will always find a way to be confused by something. I think a line of warning in the docs file will satisfy most people on this forum.

For a pop-up message, use `dbg_msg:whatever`. For one which automatically disappears, use `dbg_toast:whatever`. For a pop-up browser, use `nickel_browser:modal`. For that, but with a custom URL, use `nickel_browser:modal:https://whatever`. For that, but with custom CSS too, use `nickel_browser:modal:https://whatever css { code: here; }`.

If you want help with something specific, I can give a more detailed example.

I know for 'dbg_toast' at least that it supports a limited subset of HTML and CSS. I imagine 'dbg_msg' would be the same. So the <br> tag should work for new lines. <b> and <i> will give you bold and italics respectively.

By the way, I wanted to clarify, if I increase the font size (120%), then the inscription is cropped, does not fit in the window. So it should be or can it be circumvented?

Do you mean elided (i.e. an ellipsis at the end), or literally cut off?

If such does come to be added, I would like it to take into account series and not to pick a book in the middle of a series. Meaning if I have books 3-5, only pick 3 and not 4 or 5.

I vaguely seem to remember that NickelMenu will only open DropBox on a Kobo ereader that natively supports DropBox. At this point, I think that needs a Kobo Forma.

I can’t say for certain about NM though given the author also will not create patches for Dropbox or overdrive support (rightly so IMO) it follows that NM won’t add support for it either.

And yes currently the Forma stands alone as the only kobo with Dropbox support.

I have managed to add some custom items like reboot and power off to the home menu, but but I would like to add the section Developer options in the home menu. Any idea on how this could be done.

Or maybe a custom script or trigger to change the orientation i have already added the ForceAllowLandscape=true parameter but im trying to have inverted landscape also as an option
