Is there a way to make the patch for "Increase the view details container size" work on a Clara HD with "Custom synopsis/font size" without any lines being cut? Maybe someone has figured out a safe font size?

Also, wasn't there a patch to disable the fast forward/backward flipping of pages by holding the lower corners? This feature makes it impossible to look up words in the last line in the dictionary. Or is there another way to disable it? I think I read something somewhere but I don't remember exactly...

I don't have a Clara HD, so I can't really help here. I haven't had any issues on my A2 though.

There's a configuration option, but I don't remember off the top of my head what it was called.

Hi,
is it possible to officially include the 'Set font scale factor' patch that GeoffR created in this thread in kobopatch? I mean the one that works on both kepubs and epubs, not just on epubs:

Code:
Set font scale factor:
  - Enabled: yes
  - Description: |
      This patch sets the font scale factor for ePub and KePub readers.
  # font scale factor is (current font size) / (X+32)
  # original value X=14, so (current font size) / 46 is original scale factor,
  # e.g. selecting font size 46 from the slider gives scale factor 1.0
  # allowed replacement values for X: 0-15 (smaller X --> larger scale factor)
  # ePub:
  - ReplaceInt: {Offset: 0x4A6EBA, Find: 14, Replace: 14}
  # KePub:
  - ReplaceInt: {Offset: 0xA2A5F0, Find: 14, Replace: 14}
I've already added it manually to my list of patches and I've been finding it very useful with kepubs: it helps me in finding my optimal font-size for reading across books without having to change the book's CSS manually. I don't know if it would be too difficult to maintain though...

It wouldn't be too hard to maintain (it would add about 15 seconds to the time to update the patches), but it's up to GeoffR if he wants to add the patch (as it's his patch).

GeoffR recently added this patch, so you might want to see if it fits your needs.

Thanks for the reply! From what I've seen the patch that has been already added only works with epubs -- which makes sense, that's where the main issue was. The patch I'm using was an alternative, which ended up solving one of my problems by happy coincidence
I would be very happy if GeoffR decided to include this in future releases as well, but if not it's fine as it is -- it's a very minor thing that is probably of no interest to other users now that it's fixed, and I'm already happy that I have the choice not to update if I want to, which is more than I had before for sure
