If you still have procyan available -
Set it for AST output on both jars, then look at those to get a feel for what changed.

Thanks!

I have to confess that the cost-benefit relationship is overstretched in this case.
I'm no developer and no hacker/cracker.
AST-output for example ist not possible when using BytecodeViewer, at least I can not find the option. I think it's too time-consuming to go any further...

I work on a slow MACMini in dual-boot. For copying files from and to the reader I have to use OSX (I just got running it there), for editing files I have to reboot in Win10 because editing software runs in Windows...
That's all veeeeery slow and time consuming.

But, by the way, code with BCV for the class YJReaderImplResources does not look that bad. I think editing values here could be a solution:

Code:
package com.amazon.ebook.booklet.yjreader.impl.resources;

import com.amazon.ebook.util.*;
import com.amazon.agui.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;

public class YJReaderImplResources extends KindleResourceBundle
{
    public YJReaderImplResources() {

And of course all of this fun will come to an end once Amazon/Lab126 start using signed jars.

THEN maybe I will get some renewed interest in JBpatch.
But right now the roof isn't leaking so nobody is interested in stock piling buckets.

I understand.

Meanwhile man could write Amazon and bombing them with questions und suggestions concerning better layout-options.
If that can help? I hope 'yes' but do not believe in.

I for my part hope to be able to use my Voyage a long time with the now enhanced functions (fonts, margins, screensaver).

I have download your .jar file sharing and compare. Thanks alot for your sharing
My PW2 is 5.8.7. Left and Right margin is still the same.
I focus on what you have change is not related to left/right, only "font.wordsperline.margin.list". I do search and found some more infor.
Left/right margins: These values are overridden in by the "font.wordsperline.margin.list"
I change 150 100 50 to 60 30 0. DONE. No more margin as expect.

You do not have to go off-site for that information.

Does Amazon listen to their customer's requests?

On forum index page, click the 'views' column header to sort by number of views.
What do you find?

User selected fonts - up 6-1/2 years - no response from Amazon
(FONT_RAMP has been there since after version 5.4.x but not documented by Amazon.)
User selected screensavers - up 6-1/2 years - no response from Amazon
USB networking - up 4-1/2 years - since Amazon took it off the Kindles.
JBpatch (margins, hyphenation, others) - up nearly 5 years - Amazon has improved their hyphenation.

So you want to write them a letter?
Lots of luck, but it might make the letter writer feel a little bit better.

Unless you are #1 best friend of some supreme deity who can offer ethereal brimstone and hell fire;
Own a majority of Amazon stock and can offer a stock price crash to negative numbers;
or anyone of similar influence;
I repeat: lots of luck.

On the hyphenation, have you been following the threads that talk about the format Amazon is using? It gets to the point of pandering or something.

No, I haven't.

Have they made matters worse than none at all?

I am seriously thinking of taking up a new hobby -
Move to Kentucky and watch the grass turn blue.

I'll not reproduce the behaviour of your reader. But you do have a Paperwhite. Resolution is different and maybe that could not go together with my files from my VOYAGE.

Did you restart the reader after installing the files? This is necessary.
In my case they are working flawless.

There is one wish left - I forgot to mention alignment: I want the text to be left aligned. Suggestions?

In respect of layout, block-alignment is pure sin. Spaces between words should not be varying all the time.

Please - do not lough about our not sooo long words in german language. This kind of word-concretions ist what is our language famous for.
There are billions of possibilities to find new words never existed before. For example 'Amazonvolltrottelnlayoutirrsinn', meaning more or less 'bad layout'.

I'm very convinced, this word does exist just until now and no day earlier.

No worries on the sarcasm.

Now since knc1 apparently hasn't stuck his head in the kindle forum, I will clarify.

Apparently Amazon has come up with a new format for the newer Kindles that does hyphenation and a few other things. It is called KFX. From what I have been reading, it has some sort of DRM or other code attached that cannot at the moment be hacked.
It seems some people are getting their Unterwäsche in a twist because Amazon is either trying to become the only ebook seller or lock people into only buying their books.
Of course these same people try to infer/inply/say that you can't sideload outside books on a kindle. They are so wrong on that but they don't want to hear otherwise.

Once upon a time, there was a C.S. Phd. candidate who wrote JBPatch to deal with hyphenation in his native language, German.

So even some of the natives get tired of setting the Kindle to landscape mode just to read a word.

Yes, and believe it or not - I had to turn my reader 90° to read the one word in the line at least one or two times...
