Change cover size in list mode display?
#1  SbAgOoTs 07-20-2018, 06:38 AM
Hi all,
is there any way to change (increase) the cover size in detailed list display modes?
I gave a look at D:\.adds\koreader\plugins\coverbrowser.koplugin\li stmenu.lua but I didn't find an easy parameter to change...

I don't think you can through the GUI, but if you increase the font size it might grow along with it automatically.

I wasn't hoping to do it through the GUI 😉 of course, but changing the fonts....😕
They are fine like they are now...
Any other suggestion?

Did you try giving it more margin or padding somewhere? At a quick peek you can increase the size of the picture on line 183 but then it simply exceeds its bounds. Admittedly it's not immediately obvious at a glance, haha. Probably only @poire-z knows the ins and outs of this code, and even then it's been a while.

Edit: see

The link did the trick!
Thanks to you and @poire-z.

Just one suggestion: do the cache purge before making the size change.
Obviously, now I would vote to have this option in the GUI...

Thank you for this tip! I just a got a Kobo Aura One a couple of months ago and I use KOReader instead of the Kobo software.

I like looking at the covers when I browse my books, but the Mosaic with cover images mode does not have the metadata and percent read.

The Detailed list with cover images and metadata is so useful, but the covers are very small.

I changed the "64" to "150" and this changed the list of 10 on a page in the File Browser and History to 4 on a page and that allows good size thumbnails of the covers along with all of the metadata and percent read etc. Changing the "64" to "128" allowed 5 to a page and looks even better.

Thanks again!

Dear all,

the hack above worked fine until the 11.2019 update, but now in theory it shouldn't be needed anymore and in any case it can't be applied in exactly the same way.
Let me explain: we have an Objects menu now: but changing both items per page or font size parameters doesn't have any effect on my Kobo Aura One...
There is also a (quite well hidden) Detailed list files per page setting and ... Eureka! It did it: decreasing its value you have bigger covers in list menu... but also font size changes accordingly (so you have giant size metadata...) and you have to hack again the listmenu.lua file.
In short, before I needed a single hack to get the result, now I have to change two parameters (and to find the right balance between them).
So, my question is: is it so difficult to have a simple setting to change cover size (or number of files per page if you prefer) without touching the default font size (like in several Linux file managers just to mention an example)?

Thanks in advance.

Could the settings need a restart or something?

Not a reboot, for sure a restart since I have to edit \.adds\koreader\plugins\coverbrowser.koplugin\list menu.lua file...
