keeping track of multiple read dates

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 21:15:54 GMT

Is there a way to make a long text custom column that populates from a date column? I want to keep track of date changes in a text box to keep the information from erasing or being written over when merged or changed in the initial date column.

Thinking of upgrading

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 19:54:29 GMT

I have a Kobo, I've had one or another for years now. (I think I've got an HD or a Glo or something currently). It's getting a bit old, and needs resetting every few days now (never used to do that), and the light is getting a bit temperamental. So I thought I might request a new one for Christmas. I'm really tempted by the Aura One, mainly for the ability to borrow library books. But our library has just changed from Overdrive to Borrowbox - does anyone know if it's compatible? And how smoothly does the borrowing work? I'd much rather use the library than buy, but I don't have a computer (just an iPad), and our work computers won't let you download stuff, so I can't use that, so I end up having to try to get my husband or daughter to sync it all on the PC if I currently want to borrow a book, and so it's just way too much trouble.

Formatting cbr comic for ipad

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 18:42:17 GMT

Could someone help me with formatting comics for the ipad? I have tried to format comics in the epub format for my ipad but the comics do not appear readable. The comics only take up half the screen. Is there something in settings that I can adjust? Any assistance is appreciated.

pronouncing dictionary for andriod?

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 17:33:19 GMT

Is there something out there I can install on an Android device that can be used to pronounce words when reading ebooks? Hoping to find something so that if my kiddo runs across a word she's not sure about, she could tap it and it would say the word for her. She knows a lot more words verbally than she's sure about in "print".

Calibre 3 has lost my kobo bookshelves

navbar, test versus book generation

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 13:37:58 GMT

When I use ebook-convert to test my recipe and look at the results in the browser, the navigation bar renders as a line across the page. When I run and create an Epub, download the book to my tablet, and read (with FBreader), the navigation bar is stacked vertically. Is there anything which can get me back to line-across for the navigation bar? Thanks, Alan

Aura One page turns

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 13:05:56 GMT

I'm on 4.5.9587. Is there anyway to increase the speed of page turns? I'm a very fast reader and the slow turns drive me crazy. My Android Lg tablet is so much faster and the battery life not that much different from the Aura One. I do like the size of the One, but if I can't resolve this, I'll end up not using it except for outdoors. Such a shame as it is only a couple of months old. Lyn

switch Click / Tab action for reading book or display more details

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 12:23:58 GMT

Hello, is it possible to flip the click / tab function for read a book / get more info function. For better understanding: actually I had to tab / click long at a book to read it, if I tap / click once short it opens up a more details windows about the book. Do I had a chance to flip these actions so that I had to short tab / click my book to read it and tab / click long on it to get the more detail window? mfg Ani

Kindle Oasis - books in memory but not displaying on device

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 12:18:00 GMT

My Oasis rebooted itself last night, and this morning I was presented with a blank screen. All my books had gone. I managed to download most of them again from the Amazon cloud, but some I have sideloaded via Calibre were not there. Through Calibre I can see that they are still showing up in the device memory, but will not display on the Oasis home screen. I have tried: - restarting the Oasis - checked that I have selected Downloaded documents, and show All on the main screen - I have deleted a book from the Oasis memory, then loaded via Calibre (send to device), but it still does not display Is there a way of forcing the Oasis to rebuild the index (I though the restart would do that)? I am particularly concerned about one book that has a lot of notes I have added, and I'm afraid I might lose these.

Using one calibre library on several computers

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 09:53:43 GMT

Hi all, i would like to use my calibre library from more than one computer (even outside my LAN). So i have put the library on my NAS and was thinking to import the metadata.db on my second (remote) computer. Is this the way to go? And.. will it actually work. Because I see right now the performance of the big file structure that Calibre creates for storing the books is not really performing well on my nas ;-) Hope to get advice.

Windows uninstall bug?

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 08:27:40 GMT

It appears that the Windows installer is failing to remove file associations from the registry. I discovered this when trying to use the editor as a stand-alone program, having (some years ago) uninstalled Calibre64 and replaced it with Calibre32 ( -- there were some 74 file associations under HKCU\Software\Classes (calibre64.AssocFile.*, calibre64Editor.AssocFile.* and calibre64Viewer.AssocFile.*) which had not been removed, and which prevented me opening the editor from the "open with" menu.

Content Server - Web

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 07:55:37 GMT

Is it possible to customise the web pages that the content server produces to create your own customised website but using calibre to store and process your books? Or alternatively use calibre somehow to create your own website from the content?
