Yes, I mean you.
It is poor form to include advertisements with every post.

In addition to the black invert, I also don't see the ragged right feature.

Ah. You mean the signature block. I don't see how this is an advert. And even if it were, you could both have approached the issue with a little less rudeness.

Thanks. I wonder if that means the black invert and ragged right alignment are only available on the new Oasis, although I thought I read that they would be available to the 2013 PWs and newer kindles...

It is in the "PAGE" tab of the "Aa" popup, bottom right, called "ALIGNMENT".

I've updated and do not have the ragged right under the alignment section. I only the justified option, and the left aligned option is greyed out for the book I'm reading.

It is only available for books in KFX format.

(That feature is not new. It has been there since the 5.8.9 firmware release.)

I wasn't being rude. I was just stating a fact. It is advertising and it is annoying.

I noticed that Amazon has revamped the font menu. It's now possible to control the boldness of fonts with the new Bold option. (IIRC, some Kobo models had a similar option for quite some time.)

Is the boldness slider only available on 300 DPI models? It's not showing on my Paperwhite 2.

Ragged right was there previously. It requires books that support ‘enhanced typography’, and is not available for side-loaded content (at least without hacking).

I have a PW2 and I am seeing it. It looks like the screenshot a few posts above.
