Oops. I'll add it to the request thread so I don't miss it again. Sorry.

This may not be the place to ask, but is there an easy way to replace the system font and size for things like menus and pop-up windows? I know there's the trick of replacing, for example, the Chinese font and then changing the system language, but that has certain undesirable side effects as I recall.

Recent firmware has "Large Print Mode" in the Beta Features. That increases the size of everything in the UI.

You can also change the size by editing the config file. Adding an entry for "LargePrintFontScale" in the "ApplicationPreferences" section of the config file to do this. The value is a number. I find that 1.2 on my Clara HD is a nice increase in size without reducing the number of books on the screen. If you do this, you might need to restart the device to have it take effect.

I chose 1.15 (at 1.2 it seems too large)

But it is individual, of course.

I'm aware of large print mode, which might be more accurately described as "absurdly large print mode". Ha ha!

But it seems there's no similarly straightforward way to change the system font. I'd love to use something like Noto Sans or IBM Plex.

Hi, thanks for your work!

I've found a problem/bug: when I tick the "Invert screen" option, in order to get the "night mode" feature, it works just for one/two pages and then the inversion of black and white disappers!
Is there any way to fix this? Thanks!

I just wanna say thanks for all the work with these patches I’ve finally been able to get the margins to the itsy bitsy size I like them. I might tinker with giving my top margin a bit more space to use the miniclock app but I’m going to see how much I miss it vs how much I like the extra line of text first

I don't know, I have a Kobo Glo. At first I thought it was because of an old night-mode patch that even didn't work, so I unistalled it and re-installed the patch, but the problem persists. It's such a shame, I'd love to have that night mode!

Specifically included a night mode, flipped through the 20 pages - everything works fine. Kobo Clara, but it doesn't matter, Glo should be fine, too.

There is a way to enable "invert" in developer mode, without patch. Works great for me on Kobo Glo HD.
