OK, since you can put rotation icon on the top menu bar on other Kobo devices, I though you could put `Home` and "Settings` icons there too, maybe I misunderstood and they are just different things.

Hey, @geek1011, I found a bug of "Replace adobe page numbers toggle with invert screen".

I put

[DeveloperSettings]
EnableDebugServices=true

into "Kobo eReader.conf" and enable "Invert Screen" in Settings->Developer options(The "Invert Screen" in "Reading Settings" is unchecked), and it works perfectly even after I power it off/on again, the status will keep as I set in "Developer options".

But if use this "Invert Screen" patch and enable it in "Reading Settings" (before enabling this patch, I disable/uncheck "Invert Screen" in "Developer options" and remove the above lines in "Kobo eReader.conf" and power off/on): it works OK, once I power it off/on again, the effect will be gone, the white-text-black-background effect will restore to the white-background-black-text, but the status of the "Invert Screen" item in "Reading Settings" is still what I set (on/check status), so if I want it white-text-black-background again, I have to uncheck-check it again.

This bug can be reproduced. I've tried it multiple times.

FYI: Kobo Forma 4.11.12019 and patched

The patch isn't adding an icon to the menu bar. It is enabling an existing icon in more circumstances. The rotation icon is only officially supported by the Forma. The patch, or the config file entry, enables the icon on the other devices.

is it possible to disable the header, while leaving the footer.
the header is totally useless, but the footer can at least show that page numbers.
i enabled your code on Kobo Aura One, but I didn't find any option showed on your pics.
Is there any other ways to do this, not only with .epub, but with pocket and .kepub?

I don't know what you mean. If you are on one of the last few firmware versions, you can already do this.

Just throwing this out there: is it possible to make the Forma's physical buttons scroll in the Web Browser?

I can't seem to reproduce this on my Aura Edition 2. Could you post some screenshots?

Sorry, I quoted #5,but it didn't show up.
I mean, how to get rid of the header and only leave the footer?
I browsed all the patched for 4.10.11655 but didn't found one with this function. May I ask which one should I use?

Please check the attachment, "Invert Screen" is on in "Reading Settings", but the screen is while-background-black-text. I took this picture after powering off and on again, if I don't power off and on again, "Invert screen" in "Reading Settings" works fine.

How can you have "show title" and "show footer"? Are they build-in features only available for Forma? Or what patch you have used?
I still cannot make it with Aura One(4.10.11655)

Recently the kobo stock firmware supports this feature "Show title" and "Show footer", you don't need to install any patches (before this, you can get fullscreen feature in patch, no "Show title" and "Show footer" in settings, just fullscreen).

I'm using Kobo Forma with latest version of firmware, I got Kobo Aura One too, but I didn't touch it since I'm using Kobo Forma, so I cannot remember whether 4.10.11655 for Kobo Aura One supports this feature. You may check the firmware release threads, some people said that you can install that firmware without issues even though Kobo doesn't release it for Kobo Aura One or any other models other than Kobo Forma.

11655 doesn't support it, only 979 and next
