Internet Browser

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 16:40:16 GMT

I need some type of browser other than Chrome or IE for my work computer. I attempted to put FireFox (my preferred browser) on a zip drive as a portable browser. Sadly I could still not use the browser. The IT department has this blocked somehow. Is there a way around this or am I stuck with using IE or Chrome? Is there another browser out there similar to FireFox that will accept my settings and plugin's? I really need the password saver plugin I use. But that has to be on a zipdrive since I cannot download and install anything. I am only a standard user and not allowed to download/install anything to the computer. Thanks any help/advise will be greatly appreciated.

NimbusMod Redux - now available in bold!

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 15:19:42 GMT

I'm a recent eReader adopter, and have tried and enjoyed delphin (https://www.mobileread.com/forums/member.php?u=92670)'s NimbusMod font family. However, it lacks proper bold and bold italics. Back in 2013... ---Quote (Originally by Guntram)--- Any news on the Nimbus? ---End Quote--- So I thought I'd put my copy of Fontographer to use and synthesise the long-awaited Bold and BoldItalic variations! Whilst I was in there, I also took the liberty of fixing the mistakes(?) in the italic letters p and r. I started with the NimbusMod Regular and Italic and added 30em of weight to each. This is a different approach to the bold fonts generated by BCotton here (https://www.mobileread.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1888318&postcount=113) which just expanded the outline of each glyph, meaning the bold versions were taller than the others. I've decided to call this version NimbusMod Redux, to make it easier to differentiate on your reader and on this forum. In the files it's known as version 2.0 Thoughts appreciated! I can make further amends if required.

Fixing an epub

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 14:33:51 GMT

I bought an .azw3 book book and loaded it to Calibre. I converted it to .epub and loaded it to a bunch of e-readers on my phone and pad. But it failed to be processed with Google books. When I tested it with https://www.ebookit.com/tools/bp/Bo/eBookIt/epub-validator, I found lots of errors. Lots. I don't have the expertise to fix them in Sigil. How do I give feedback to whomever should know what the problem is?



Content Server: default Book list mode

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 13:06:34 GMT

Hi! I find the default Grid view of the Content Server little useful for browsing titles. Is there a way to set the "Detailed list" or even the "Custom list" as default for all users? If it is not possible, then I guess I should make my users go to a link with the &panel=book_list parameter, but I find it a bit embarassing. Thank you all for your help!



Converted azw3 ebook page 1 error?

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 11:57:59 GMT

I have an epub book converted to azw3. When I read the azw3 on my Kindle Paperwhite, the page number always says "page 1" no matter where I am in the book. Even looking at the table of contents, all chapters are indicated to be in page 1. I checked the epub and read in iBooks, page numbering is working. Is this a conversion problem? How do I fix this?

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 09:13:16 GMT

This is one of their original publications by an established author and we've previously received the 3rd novella free as well: The Fabled Oak (https://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=289830) Currently free @ Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/Sherlocks-Demon-Byron-Makangelo-Thriller-ebook/dp/B017J93FDS/) (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* Joseph and April Hepworth are living their dream – turning the Manor House they have inherited into an organic farm. But it quickly turns into a nightmare. Joseph is possessed by the spirit of the world's most famous detective – Sherlock Holmes. But why? And to what sinister purpose? To find out, April calls upon an old flame, the charming ghost-hunter Byron Makangelo. She hopes his expertise for the paranormal will help solve the mysteries surrounding Fernvale Manor. But Byron is up against an opponent that would have baffled Holmes himself. Sherlock's Demon is a tense paranormal mystery thriller that will keep readers guessing to the last page.



Free (Kindle) Outward Bound by Juanita Coulson [Sci-Fi Space Drive Test Family Saga]

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 09:06:55 GMT

*Outward Bound* by Juanita Coulson (ISFDB (http://www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/ea.cgi?Juanita_Coulson), Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juanita_Coulson), SFE (http://sf-encyclopedia.com/entry/coulson_juanita)), who is also an award-winning filksinger, is the 2nd novel in her Children of the Stars quartet of epic star-spanning generational saga science fiction novels sparked from an early contact between aliens and a powerful Earth family dynasty, this one starring a Mars-raised heiress who is determined to use an experimental faster than light stardrive to navigate through deep space, rather than waiting through the long cryogenic sleep which is the proven technology, despite opposition from her family and lover, who stand in the way of her dreams, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Endeavour Press' Venture imprint. This was originally published in 1982 by Ballantine Books's Del Rey imprint and we've previously received the entire quartet in an omnibus edition (https://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=285837), as well as the 1st novel standalone (https://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=291573). :thanks: Currently free @ Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/Outward-Bound-Children-Stars-Book-ebook/dp/B016R3X0CI/) (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* Brenna Foix Saunder is the Martian-reared daughter of Earth’s dynastic Saunder family. Fiercely ambitious, beautiful and determined, she puts an untried and dangerous experimental star drive above her own life. Stifled by the media frenzy surrounding the Saunder family, she has utter contempt for newshunters who will risk anything to uncover information. Charlie Dahl is one such newshunter who proves he would rather see someone die than let a story slip through the net. Brenna must seek refuge in the arms of her lover Derek, a man of immense charm, but trouble brews when he tries to stand in the way of her dreams. Can they maintain a truce or will politics infect their relationship in ways even they cannot begin to imagine? To reach the stars by passing long years in frozen sleep is the only safe and sure way to complete her star drive mission. But Brenna Saunder can’t wait — even though faster-than-light drive experiments had already proved fatal once. She meant to conquer the light barrier — and to hell with everything her family and her lover could do to stop her. They are outward bound, challenging the stars and fighting battles against one another. And so continues the magnificent story of the dynamic Saunder family, as they reach beyond the grip of Earth’s Sun and its system in ‘Outward Bound’, the second volume of science fiction’s greatest family saga.



iBooks TOC: Buggy for Deeper Structures?

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 08:37:13 GMT

Hi all, I made an EPUB with 3 nested levels in the TOC. In ADE4 everything is fine, but in iBooks, it's a mess! With the 3rd level starting, iBooks messes up with all deeper levels and after displaying level 3, it incorrectly shows level 2 as level 1 etc. (See screenshots attached.) After hours of checking absolutely correct toc.xhtml code, I started to investigate this issue deeped by using the linear-algebra.epub of IDPF’s EPUB3 samples (https://github.com/IDPF/epub3-samples/tree/master/30/linear-algebra). Loading this to iBooks brings the exact same errors! So: Is this an iBooks bug? I couldn't find any relevant information about that in the web. Can anybody confirm? Or give me a clue how to solve this? Thanks Tobias

Aura H2O Aura H2O replacement screen, no touch

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 06:25:40 GMT

I've got a friend's Aura H2O here, that he had got a replacement screen for and partially disassembled but wasn't comfortable going further. I've replaced the screen and it boots back up fine but touch doesn't work. I've taken it apart and reseated everything a couple of times. What should I be looking for that would interfere with this function?

Content PW2 and Active Content

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 05:13:17 GMT

Hello! Can someone confirm that the Kindle Paperwhite (6th Generation) is compatible with Active Contents from Kindle Store and that version 5.8.11 also supports those little programs or is it possible that the update prevented the programs from working anymore?
