Thanks! And double thanks for the clear comments listing the valid sizes for the different models as well as how to possibly avoid the dogear problem!

@geek1011 used to distribute a cssextract executable in the kobopatch zip that would extract the compressed CSS streams from nickel. He had to remove it (I forget why). It was very easy to use but didn't assign any meaningful names to each CSS stream.

If you're able to make his new qrc tool work on your own PC, that will extract all CSS streams (compressed and uncompressed) individually and with a meaningful name that (usually) gives a vague idea of what it might do.

If you can't make qrc work you can see most of the pre-extracted nickel CSS for fw 4.25.15875 in a download (name ending nickel.15875.qInitResources_styles.zip) from this GitHub issue. (@geek1011, I hope you don't mind me posting this.)

Have a rummage around and get yourself a brand new hobby for 2021

It nearly doubled the size of the patch zips, it kept triggering Windows Defender, and it isn't really necessary anymore now that we have qrc.

The only downside to qrc is it doesn't include CSS strings.

Yep, that's correct. But note that I may not leave those up forever.

I'm upgrading my patch from v4.23.15548.
With comparediff tool, I noted that this current version (4.25.15875) doesn't have these lines of code anymore:
Code:
	Increase page navigation history:
	  - Enabled: yes
	  - Description: Increases the number of dots marking navigation history on the scrubber.
	  # Replace the immediate value for the cmp r1, #2 before the bgt to the inlined
	  # QVector::removeFirst() (i e. QVector::erase(start, start+1)):
	  - BaseAddress: "BookmarkHistoryMixin::pushBookmark(Bookmark const&)"
	  - ReplaceInt: {Offset: 18, Find: 2, Replace: 4} # note: you can set thr replacement to whatever you want, but it MUST be > 1 or bad things will happen
What happened to this section?

It would be more correct to remind geek1011, what if he forgot to rewrite it by chance? Perhaps there is just a lot of work and there is no time to deal with this patch.

I'm looking for a patch (if it can be done) to not uppercase the series names and leave them as they are typed in Calibre. Thanks.

Jon, this is the third message you've posted on the same topic. The best I can say is that you typed the third message instead of copy/paste.

Apologies for the probably stupid question, but what exactly does "Enable patches in the files in the src folder (or use the overrides in kobopatch.yaml)." mean?

How does one "enable" the patches or "uses" the overrides?

Do I basically need to edit each of the four .yaml files to change "Enabled: no" to "Enabled: yes" if I want them, and that's that?

You can do that in the individual yaml files or you can add the enables to the kobopatch.yaml. For myself, I use the override enables in kobopatch.yaml and also have them saved as a text file to make it easier to apply my preferred patches to a new version of KoboPatch. The only issue for me is removing discontinued patches and adding new patches.

@Elektron is correct. The new firmware update will overwrite the patched files so no need to unpatch.

Just to double check, if I've disabled the patches that could clash with Nickel Menu, there won't be a problem will there? To give an example, I turned on the My Words feature using Nickel Menu and disabled it in the patch. I'm just a bit cautious as this is my first time patching and there are so many tiny things that bug me about Nickel I can't wait to get it working. Thank you, I'm so amazed by all the work the developers in the community put in!

You can use them together. All my mods/tools (NickelMenu, NickelSeries, kepubify, dictutil, kobo-dotfile-hack, etc) and the patches are compatible with each other unless otherwise stated.
