Back in the Aura 6" days I'm almost certain there was a refresh page every chapter option. Is there a possible way to reintroduce this via a patch?

From memory, that option was only on the Aura. I don't think there was a way to use it on any of the other devices.

I thought there was a patch where you could set a large number (oh the humanity), and a page refresh was forced at the beginning of each chapter?

Ok, now I'm interested. I know there is a patch for up to 99 pages, but I wasn't aware it also refreshed at the beginning of each chapter.

Sorry. I was wrong. I thought it was default behavior for the firmware. I just tested and it doesn't refresh at the start of each chapter.

You don't need to patch anything. You just need to edit the config file and change the number for the refresh. The patch changes the numbers offered in the drop down to something other than 1 to 6.

As I said, my memory says the refresh at the beginning of a chapter was an Aura thing only. But, I think it did appear in the firmware for other devices. And I think when it did, there were a lot of complaints.

Save the file, disconnect the Kobo as normal. This by itself will not have changed anything, however, when you open the Reading Setting while reading a book, there is now a new option that was previously hidden, "Show Header and Footer." Remove the check mark to get use of your full screen. Note that when you are in full screen mode, the 'margin' slider will not always update the display on the fly. You have to adjust your margin, press the home icon to close the book, and re-open it, for the new margins to be in effect.
Do you know how to set the css file to stop the clipping of letters on the right side? I know it's a known bug, but I get the impression that some have had luck adjusting the css, but I haven't found a setting that works.

It's nothing to do with CSS. You need to apply the appropriate patch(es).

That's what the kobo_extra.css file is for. You can append those lines directly into the book css file if you like, but the combination of that file and checking the setting in the Calibre driver does the work for you as you send the books to the device.

No firmware patching is required for my suggestions to work. (But I sincerely thank Geoff and the contributers to the pathes for showing and documenting how it's done.)

So what CSS fixes the problem? I've not read of any CSS fixing the problem. The only thing I've seen that fixes the problem is the patches.

This topic seems to contain a lot of useful tips, but it's also pretty long, and somehow "polluted" by discussion (to which I am adding, of course).

Is there, somewhere, a compilation of such tricks? Or maybe an "extended manual", detailing functionalities that are poorly covered in the official manual, and, presumably, poorly documented configuration options?

Install the Kobo app on your computer and download your books. Then find the book files on your computer and copy them into Calibre.

The Kobo device probably has to be awake and functioning for the pc to mount it and show the files.

Hate to say but you can't just copy the books from Kobo Desktop to Calibre; the downloaded books are DRM protected by Kobo's own DRM scheme.

You'll need to search for Apprentice Alf and look for the obok tool to add them to Calibre.

Alternatively on the Kobo website, when you look at your purchased books (I forget the exact name) you'll see the option to download an epub version. Selecting that will download an ACSM file that when opened via ADE will download an epub.
