Tue, 25 Oct 2016 02:41:18 GMTI don't know if this is the best place to put this; if not, mods, please move it. I never thought I would live to see the day. I noticed this announcement at the top of my "Manage Your Content and Devices" page at Amazon: ---Quote--- Cloud Collection Management is launched. Cloud Collections can be created, edited, and shared from the Manage Your Content and Devices page. ---End Quote--- It's about time. This will make my life much easier. skinmaan

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 16:12:19 GMTHello.. I've searched in the forum for this but I haven't found anything. In k4 I have a progress bar and a percentage on the bottom of the page permanently. When I press menu button I also have position (relative/total) and number page (relative/total). Is there a hack or something similar that I can use to view -permanently- position counter and page number without press menu button? Thanks in advance.
Mon, 24 Oct 2016 15:09:57 GMTSo I got my Kobo Glo HD working perfectly: syncing Calibre tags as collections, syncing notes & annotations, Kobo full screen mode, creating KEPUBs to open some of the extra features, and side loaded a couple of fonts I like. Thanks to the open source community for Calibre and these great plugins! However, the Kobo rendered my side-loaded fonts a bit on the light side and didn't have a UI to adjust the weight like it does for the built-in fonts. But I found a way to make the Kobo render sideloaded fonts with any weight - it's just not in the UI. Connect the Kobo to your PC via USB, open it like a drive and edit the .conf file in the Kobo directory. Find the section listing font weights and sharpness. Add a line specifying a weight for your side-loaded font, following the format of the surrounding lines. The default weight Kobo uses seems to be around 0.06; the range 0.1 to 0.2 seems ideal for most fonts, but you can go up to around 0.8. PS the config file also has a sharpness setting for each font. There is no UI for this, so it looks like something the Kobo sets automatically based on the weight. I added lines to the config file to try different sharpnesses for sideloaded fonts. I didn't see any difference, even under a magnifying glass, so I removed these lines. Perhaps the sharpness setting might make a difference on other fonts, or at more extreme size or weight settings?
Mon, 24 Oct 2016 15:04:36 GMTIt happens something strange with the wifi and the touchscreen on my C67ML. WIFI ISSUE: If the source of the wifi is a normal house/bar/library connection or comes from android 4.4 everything goes well, but if the source is from a android 5 or 6 I have problems with the stability of the data transfer. What it means is I have no problem seeing and connecting to the network, and even no problems surfing, but it arrive a moment when the pages stops charging. Then I have to disconnect the wifi and connect it again, and then works, but sonner or later will happen again. Any idea? TOUCHSCREEN ISSUE: It stops to recognize my finger pased 2 seconds (aprox). That don't let me select text. Any idea? My firmware is 1.7.5. Thanks!
Mon, 24 Oct 2016 13:29:42 GMTIs there any way to copy annotations (bookmarks, highlights, notes etc.) from a book on one Kindle to the same book on another Kindle?
Mon, 24 Oct 2016 12:12:24 GMTHello I plan to buy a reader. My wife owns a Kobo Aura (1st edition) which is nice except: 1) the frontlight, even set at the minimum, is too bright when reading in complete dark 2) I would prefer a warmer color than the blue frontlight of her Aura Do you have a model to recommend with a better frontlight (less bright and warmer compared to the Aura 1st gen) ? I know there is the Aura One but I think it is too large and expensive. Thank you very much :)
Mon, 24 Oct 2016 11:53:56 GMTI have a Kindle Keyboard which is a bit more than 5 years old. It needs debricking, but I thought I'd give it a new battery before debricking With the *new battery *in (and the innards freshly dusted ;)), I plugged it into the mains to charge. It "rebooted" itself two or three times, but I'm used to that because it's waiting to be debricked so I didn't worry. The orange light was a bit slow to come on, but then stayed on. Then after several hours, it hung on the home screen and became *unresponsive *to all keys and the slider. That was yesterday - this morning the orange light had gone out. I tried to reboot by side-n-hold for more than 40 seconds but nothing. *No light, no response. The device hasn't gone to sleep *and still shows the home screen from yesterday. *1) *Is this my fault for procrastinating about doing the debrick? I tend to live with very-slow and often-restarting (+ hardly any wifi-on time) as long as I can, because not only do I hate being without it for the 3 days' charging before debricking, I also keep a lot of personal documents on the kindle and re-sending them takes so long, effectively it means losing most. (This kindle has been debricked twice in its life.) OR *2) *Does it mean the new battery is a dud? All the printing on it is identical to the original battery, except that the original had a bar code. OR *3) *Does it mean the kindle itself must be replaced? (:( Can't afford that.) I'm asking here before putting the old battery back in... hoping for useful replies soon! Thank you. :)
Mon, 24 Oct 2016 05:53:26 GMTHello everyone, I just registered as my friends and all the shops I went have no clue if this exists. I am looking for: Use case A) Primarily: a eReader to read my technical books when I commute (3:30h per day) in the train. I want to markup the important section, evtl. Add comments. The PDF shall then be exported from the eReader and I would the the same editable markings in my acrobat PDF reader. Use case B) Optional (I think this doesn't exist): I eReader with for example OneNote on it. It is not appreciated that I use my laptop to take notes, so I am looking for a tablet or eReader to do so with e ePen. Does this exist with EInk? I am happy if I can solve already use case A:). Thanks Ralf
Mon, 24 Oct 2016 01:52:06 GMTHello. First off, I am not sure if I am calling this feature/operation correctly. On my Kobo I currently sort/browse books via Shelves (calibre), or Collections (Kobo). If there are a set of books on a shelf that belong to a series I have been manually renaming the book titles to incorporate the series number. For example: Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone . This reminds me which order the books are in. Very simple. Recently in one of my collections I have noticed an additional line of text between the book title and the authors name. Specifically in this case it says: Book Title THE WHITE RABBIT CHRONICLES - # Gena Showalter I prefer this to my renaming method. I have been playing around in Calibre to try and get this to happen with all my books that are part of a series. I followed the instructions to setup a shelves and collections here (http://"http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Kobo_Shelves_and_Collections) to no avail. This might completely be the wrong thing for me. After playing around some of my books previously had this extra line of text and now they are gone, or so I believe. These books were either purchased from kobo or sideloaded. My question is; is it possible to add this line of text to have the series name and number show up on the Kobo? Thank you in advance for any guidance. I can attach pictures is that helps people understand in case I am naming these headings incorrectly. Cheers!
Sun, 23 Oct 2016 14:06:03 GMTHello I am reading some magazine on my Kindle and I wondered where they are stored. I have bought a subscription to the Magazine of F&SF and I would like to save the content. I have looked inside the Kindle and there are only a couple of files as follows: Fantasy & Science Fiction, Extended Edition_B01KZ2374Se6960a4fc5ad798d9a3cd8e38e4b6392.mbp1 and Fantasy & Science Fiction, Extended Edition_B01KZ2374Se6960a4fc5ad798d9a3cd8e38e4b6392.mbs. They are both 1Kb, so they are not the right files. I've found some files which have a .pobi extension with some significant size, bordering also on 1 Mb, so they could be good candidates. But what could I do with them ? Any suggestion on what I should look for ? Shouldn't they be in some azw format ?
Sun, 23 Oct 2016 13:16:41 GMTThe Fire HD 6 was released in fall 2014, 2 years ago! I thought at the time it would be a great seller, and bought 3 for my family, and later another for my mother. (All 4 are working fine and have never had a problem). Since then, it has been on permanent sale for a long, long time. Was it not such a great seller? Will they quietly discontinue it when their stock is gone? Surely it is not still in production with the permanent sale? I would love a 2nd edition, preferably thinner and lighter, but with the same screen, faster would be nice, too. Is it a pipe dream? Yes there are 5" phones but those are also a LOT more expensive.
Sun, 23 Oct 2016 11:18:02 GMTI've checked on Google and on here and can't find it, but the last I knew it was not possible to add a custom font to a Voyage, or even substitute a different font for one of the original ones. Could someone in the know please confirm if this is still the case? Thank you.
Sun, 23 Oct 2016 09:07:13 GMTHi all, Since my Kindle has developed a screen fault in the bottom corner I was wondering if anyone could suggest a screen hack so that I could maybe scroll the text on the screen in order to still use the device. I have tried all the usual resetting and rebooting the machine with no effect. thanks in advance, keef476
Sun, 23 Oct 2016 02:52:51 GMTHello! :D I just recently upgraded from a generation 5 Kindle Touch to a Kindle Paperwhite 3, and I was considering jailbreaking it, to improve functionality on it. My conly concern is, I couldn't find a lot of information telling me the negatives of doing this, so I was a little afraid I'd do it and then find out later that I would be SOL. I use my Kindle pretty regularly, at least three hours a day, and I just spend the money on it, so I don't want to do it if for any reason it is super risky... :( I'd appreciate any opinions! I just want to make sure I'm not risking how well it works or doing something that may destroy it or something... Thank you!
