Overdrive and Kobo Aura One

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 15:37:20 GMT

My Kobo Aura one stopped working with Overdrive about two software updates ago. I can sign into Overdrive with my Kobo but I can't browse or search. I get nothing. It's useless at this point. I've reset my device and signed out/in to Overdrive numerous times. If I check out a book from Overdrive I have to manually do it from a website and copy it over. It's seriously broken and buggy. Is it working for you? Have you had similar problems? Sean



OnePlus 3 no access Calibre to device

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 15:31:13 GMT

I've have a Oneplus 3 running on android 7.1.1. (Rooted) Original Rom. Now when I connect my device to Calibre the device is recognized but there is no access to the sdcard > Books and the "Jobs" keeps attempting to get access to read the Main memory for the books. Tried several things like adjusting the Device Interface Plugin with /sdcard/Books but no joy. Now I cannot find a solution myself so I turn to you guys. Any solution out there???? thanks in advance, Fred:help:



[Tables] Different number of rows per column

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 14:58:18 GMT

Don't jump too easy on conclusions: I searched a lot and all answers were somehow like "use rospan/colspan" with the obvious tables of menus or calender... What I need is that a table has 4 equal cells in the first column and 3 equal ones in the second column (of course, both columns having the same height). I tried Code: --------- Cell 1:1 Cell 1:2 Cell 2:1 Cell 3:1 Cell 2:2 Cell 4:1 Cell 3:2 --------- The trouble is that cells 1:1 and the 2:1 correspond in height to cell 1:2, which should not be the case in the case of equal size. Any ideas of improving it?

Free (Kindle) King Henry VIII’s Mary Rose [Tudor Warship History Archaeology Memoir]

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 08:25:21 GMT

*King Henry VIII’s Mary Rose* by the late British author Alexander McKee (Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_McKee_(author)), obituary @ The Independent (https://www.independent.co.uk/news/people/obituary-alexander-mckee-1535878.html)), a journalist, military historian, and amateur diver who discovered the wreck of the Tudor warship Mary Rose, is his naval history cum underwater archaeology memoir, telling the story of said sunken Tudor warship (Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Rose)) and his own subsequent search for and discovery of the wreck and the efforts put forth towards exploring and excavating it by himself and archaeological teams, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Endeavour Press. This was originally published in 1973 by Souvenir Press. Currently free @ Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/King-Henry-VIIIs-Mary-Rose-ebook/dp/B06XH37HPX/) (available to Canadians & in the UK and pretty much everywhere else Amazon sells worldwide, since this is being done via their KDP Select exclusive-or-else program) *Description* The rising of the Mary Rose in 1982 made headlines across the globe The iconic ship was a key vessel in the startlingly rapid evolution of the wooden battleship as a floating gun platform. After thirty-four years’ military service, Henry VIII’s revolutionary flagship sank at Spithead, taking with it the mysteries of its construction, armament and daily life. Resisting the efforts of Venetian salvagers in the sixteenth century and pioneering divers in the nineteenth, it seemed the Mary Rose was doomed to pass from memory. But entombed in mud and invisible to the naked eye, the Mary Rose lay patiently waiting. In 1965, nearly a century and a half later, Alexander McKee launched his own endeavour, Project Solent Ships, and his revolutionary approach opened up a new gateway of discovery. Science met adventure as archaeologists risked their lives diving under busy shipping lanes, laden with technology and equipment, to painstakingly explore Portsmouth’s clay plains. Originally published in 1973, McKee combines a historian’s flair with his seabed discoveries as he pieces together the story of King Henry VIII’s Mary Rose and outlines his vision for this most famous of Tudor ships.

YMMV.

She's joined the FBI Art Crime Team with the secret hope that one of her cases will lead to his killer. Now, despite her mother's pleas to do something safer--like get married--Serena's learning how to go undercover to catch thieves and black market traders. When a local museum discovers an irreplaceable Monet missing, Jones leaps into action. The clues point in different directions, and her boss orders her to cease investigating her most promising suspect. But determined to solve the case and perhaps discover another clue in her grandfather's murder, she pushes ahead, regardless of the danger. With spunk, humor, and plenty of heart-stopping moments, Sandra Orchard gives readers an exciting string of cases to crack and a character they'll love to watch solve them.



Multicore processor

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 05:04:27 GMT

Which Onyx devices use a multicore processor? I thought the C67ML was the only one, but I see that also the Kepler Pro does. Note: most/many Onyx devices seem to use "Freescale i.MX 6SoloLite" processors; more capable processors (such as "i.MX 6DualLite") not only have reduced delays through the multicore but also have extra features like 3d acceleration, which is required by some software (not necessarily 3d, just graphic accelerated). Can anyone share comparative experience of single core vs. multicore?

Modifying "Rating" in Calibre 3.7

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 23:12:29 GMT

Hi All, I have just recently migrated to the latest version of Calibre and it seems that i cannot modify the actual value of the field "rating" through the bulk edit GUI (search+replace). I've tried values 0-1-2-3-... to be set to 0, wildcards ... but I don't seem to be setting it correctly in order for the rating values to be set to "0". Could anyone please give me some hints/solution? Thanks a lot in advance Cheers, gohlensc P.S. and I've searched the web, without success :o :thanks:

FBReader search features

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 20:59:21 GMT

Hi, I have also sent an email to FBReader about this, but thought I'd ask you all as well. I am Currently using FB Reader on Android 7. I am contemplating getting the paid version of this product since I like the free version. In this connection I had some questions about features in the paid version a) Does it provide a means to highlight a string in the text and a context menu option to search the book for that string? b) Does the search box have a drop down for previous searches? c) If I search on a string and move to another location in the book is there an option to return to where I was? All these are features I have gotten used to in the iBooks reader. Thanks!



Synchronization of notes for sideloaded books

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 20:02:36 GMT

If I sideload AZW3 files via USB and add some notes to them with Whispersync enabled, will those notes be saved to cloud? Or do I have to send the files via Kindle email?



What format best for hyphenation?

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 18:49:23 GMT

I didn't know whether to post it here or in Calibre thread, but here it is - I've switched from Kobo to Kindle, and wanted to make sure my Polish (and English too) ebooks are hyphenated. I've been doing hyphenation with Hyphenate This! in Calibre for Kobo, but am not sure if that works the same way for Kindles. I'm not that much aware of all formats used in Kindles, does hyphenation work for all the formats then (MOBI, AZW3, I've heard of KFX?) and do I have to upload an ebook to Kindle in a specific format for hyphenation to work?
