Is there a gesture now to jump back to the previous location?
I keep opening the menu after every footnote, and just having, say, a botton-right-to-top-left swipe would be great.

You can set it to: "Swipe to go back" in the "Links" menu under the Gear Icon of the reader menu. Long press on the "Swipe to go back" text to see a blurb about how it works.

Luck;

Thanks! Poire-z pointed me there too (he wrote it, I think), and it works like a charm!

Would installing the required final firmware update for the Kobo Mini overwrite or uninstall Kobo Start Menu and KOReader?

If so, would it also stop me putting it/them back again afterwards?

It was quite a long time ago when I installed it, so I forget the procedure, but I do remember having to do quite a lot of reading to work out how.

KOReader's data is always safe. But yes, after installing a firmware update you'd have to reinstall KSM.

For questions about specific firmwares and KSM you'd be better off in the KSM topic: https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=293804

Okay. Thanks, Frenzie. I'll try to read up on it before asking questions - that thread looks quite busy.

When installing new firmware version, you can let KSM handle update and there you can choose partial update, which keeps crucial KSM files intact, so you don't need to reinstall them.

But, better for this to ask in KSM thread, not koreader one.

Thanks, Alan_S, I'll look into that.

I expect I'd need to update KSM first, because mine is probably out of date, and might not have that ability.

All KSM versions (at least since I'm using it) have this option, to handle firmware update and protect itself from overwriting crucial system files. Maybe only wording of option is a bit different.
