It would be nice to wipe right side for comfortlight adjustment.

No problem! As for that patch, it's probably impossible, as there is nowhere I would be able to fit the extra instructions required for that. Also, it would add a significant amount of time (~15 minutes) when updating the patches (it currently takes me about 30 minutes).

This is not `Remove extra bottom space when footer disabled` but... when you enable `Show footer` you can adjust it with:
Spoiler:
Code:
Reduce reading footer and quit caption:
  - Enabled: no
  - Description: |
      Based on GeoffR's `Custom reading footer style`
  - FindReplaceString:
      Find:    "ReadingFooter {\n  qproperty-footerMargin: 105;\n}\n\
                ReadingFooter[qApp_deviceIsDragon=true] {\n  qproperty-footerMargin: 170;\n}\n\
                ReadingFooter[qApp_deviceIsDaylight=true] {\n  qproperty-footerMargin: 221;\n}\n\
                #caption[qApp_deviceIsTrilogy=true] {\n  font-size: 19px;\n}\n\
                #caption[qApp_deviceIsPhoenix=true] {\n  font-size: 23px;\n}\n\
                #caption[qApp_deviceIsDragon=true] {\n  font-size: 29px;\n}\n\
                #caption[qApp_deviceIsAlyssum=true] {\n  font-size: 32px;\n}\n\

                #caption[qApp_deviceIsDaylight=true] {\n  font-size: 37px;\n}\n\
                #caption[qApp_localeName=\"ja_JP\"] {\n  font-family: Sans-SerifJP, sans-serif;\n  font-style: normal;\n}"
# When editing the replacement values below,
# BE CAREFUL NOT TO CHANGE THE LENGTH OF THE REPLACEMENT STRING!
      Replace: "ReadingFooter {qproperty-footerMargin: 00; min-height: 15px; max-height: 15px;}\n\
                #caption{qproperty-visible:false;}\n                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         "

Thanks, geek1011, for all your great work! It has significantly enhanced my device.
Could you add my request to the list for landscape rotation with 90° and 270°? Maybe tapping the icon once could enable 90° and tapping it twice 270°, something like that.

Too bad ComfortLight adjustment by swiping won't be possible.

Adjusting the light level by swiping is already a feature: swipe up/down the left side of the screen (for all but one device, I forget which one; that one has two-finger swiping up/down the [middle of?] the screen).

I believe that what isn’t possibly is changing the up/down swipe location to the right side of the screen.

Nope, that the frontlight that you can change by swiping on left side and LucyOne want change the color temperature. That's the reason because LucyOne say right side, not left

That's exactly what I meant: wiping left side for light level and wiping right side for color temperature (comfortlight).

YESSS! I've several times turned on wi-fi to update pocket and been caught in an unwanted upgrade - everything to redo, much worse when away from my computer - no decent dictionaries, no advanced font controls, all my added words lost etc.

That blocks it completely, and is likely to have side effects. The patch I'm talking about would show a nice prompt asking if you want to install the update.

Well, it has been said that it has side effects for all the time I've got it installed (two years?)
