I noted a little glitch in the french localisation: the word "chapter" is in english when I tap on the page to display the "chapter bar".
Another problem imho is that the title is written with the page counter: It's really annoying to see constantly the title (I know what I'm reading, thank you) especially when it's long: the title is cut and the page counter is on the right handside: that lack of symetrie in the page is for me annoying. The page number alone at the bottom center is better, imho.
Thanks for reading.

That text is whatever is in the ToC. If it has "Chapter 1", that is what is shown.

Cool issues with Clara HD

I have a Kobo Clara HD, and I have some annoying issues with it.
Sometimes when I swipe to flip to the next page, it jumps back a random number of pages. Very inconvenient.
I contacted with Kobo support, and they offered to replace the physical unit. This would imply that it is a hardware issue and not software, What do you think? should I go for it?
i mean to ask if there are any other Clara HD-owners that don't have this problem?
Another issue is that changing font sometimes doesn't work, mainly with books made with Calibre, not so with books I bought a store like Kobo and others.

A couple of things...

Are you running firmware version 4.19.x?if no, install it so you can make sure it's not a software issue. Also, there is an option someplace in settings to change pages with a swipe and not a tap. Try it and see if swiping works better.

Yes. They must have a reason to think this is a hardware defect, or they wouldn't be offering to replace it.

For the record, there have been firmware issues in the past that caused problems like this, but, not for a long time. And going back a page accidentally can happen with a bad tap that gets seen as a swipe, but, it should only be one page.

That usually means that there is something hardcoded in the book that the reader cannot override. It is usually a sign of a badly constructed book. Exactly what cannot be overridden is different for epubs and kepubs

Hardware PageUp and PageDown buttons don't work in "Add to Collections” screen

In the "Add to Collections'” screen, pressing the PageUp or PageDown hardware buttons don't work. I expect to see movement up or down through my various collections.

This is on Kobo Forma
