My six year old with Downs Syndrome has figured out how to turn on my Aura One and she likes to play with it, losing my place in my book in the process. Thank you so much for finding this hidden "feature". I can certainly see how some (most) would think it is an annoyance, but for me, I anticipate it being a great help.

Installed on my original Aura and at first blush everything seems to be running as it should.

I'm happy fullscreen has been enabled and I like that I can just dismiss the header or footer for kepubs.

Is it possible via patching to shrink the footer by half or even two thirds? I like the info it contains, but leaving it on just takes too much space.

Nook displays the same info in its footer, but it is much less of a space hog.

If you're already using some of the patches, look for the one named 'Custom reading footer style' in nickel.yaml.

A silly question maybe, but...

If I previously updated my Clara HD with the generic Mark 7 with the latest firmware before this update (4.11.11982), is it safe to update it now with the firmware 4.12.12111 expressly intended for the Clara HD ?


EDIT : Well, to answer my question... yes, it's safe. Great to see that the refreshing got fixed.

For the UnlockEnabled=false setting, is the file I need to update \.kobo\Kobo\Kobo eReader.conf?

If so, is there a special text editor I need to use because in Notepad it looks like all the text flows together as shown below.


(click for larger image)

When I tried to add a carriage return and put in the UnlockEnabled=false line, it looks like it just added it to the FullscreenCoverStretch entry.

The strange part is when I copy/paste the entries in the file, it appears there are hidden line breaks (expect for the line I tried to add).

[PowerOptions]
AutoColorEnabled=true
ColorSetting=5910
FrontLightLevel=3
FullscreenCoverStretch="true\r\nUnlockEnabled=fals e\r\n

For config files its best to open with wordpad so the text doesnt flow together, or you could install Notepad++.

This is because windows expects newlines to be a CRLF (carriage return, then newline), and linux (the kobo) expects newlines to be just LF. Basically any text editor but notepad will handle this fine.

I think Notepad++ is usually advised as the simplest option. I use TextWrangler.

Thanks @ReaLx3m @geek1011 @Mrs_Often!

Notepad++ helped me fix the issue.

Thanks for that. I never messed with the footer patch previously since I used the full screen hack.

Now to just wait until the patches are available.

Yes, I know. Kobo removed even more code from the relevant CSS stream ... again!

I've got a prototype replacement which I'm testing now. I can't remove the "wasted" footer space anymore, but it's the best I can come up with at the moment. I'll PM you once I've tested it a bit more.

Thanks for the quick work on the patches!

I wish Nook software had this sort of dedication. I love my Nooks but the software is a mess.
