Thanks for the suggestion, but unfortunately I have no clue how to go at it. Would it be something doable in the future?
Thanks

As you can see - pretty bad - not least because there's no way to affect the footer without also affecting the header.

You could just read with Dark Mode switched on. That would make it hard to see any uneven lighting.
Main problem is that that suggestion seems to leave the corners white, which is where I notice most of the unevenness :/

About reading in full dark mode, when I did it, specially in bed with all lights off, the white flash for the screen refresh almost left me blind

It has crossed my mind x)

There are various progress bars in the GUI. Which specific one are you asking about?

I had a look around in the nickel CSS files for progress bar stuff. I did find one instance which looked hopeful but unfortunately, when I beta-tested a different bar colour, it only affected the progress bars on the book reading stats page (More > Activity) not the one at the bottom of the reading page - as in your screenshot.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

Apologies if I missed this, but is it possible to set the landscape button previous/advance orientation independently of the portrait orientation? Libra 2

First of all, thanks for the great work being done here. I'd like to request a patch, if it's possible.

I'm a little obsessed with the unevenness of my screen's lightning - I can clearly see whiter corners at the bottom and the white / yellow colour merging. It's probably nothing to most people but, probably a little OCD-induced, I notice it every single time I reach the bottom of a page. I've switched devices, with some success, but not total.

I've also seen some improvements playing around the bottom margins and removing Book progress - in short, having more text in the bottom of the page improves the experience except for the specific line of text at the bottom, where I can see the unevenness while reading.

Then it occurred to me that this could be greatly improved if the area dedicated to book progress and below could be in dark mode, while all the rest in regular white mode (this way the dark part would hide the uneven light). It would look something like the attached image:



Is this something doable?

Thank you so much!
Luís

Asking again if anybody would be able to help!
Thank you so much
