from N96 to Max2 - is it worth?

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 11:01:21 GMT

Hello everyone, I am happy owner for almost 2 years of a Onyx N96ML. I like it very much and I enjoyed the upgrades that came over the time. As I love to study taking notes, underlining and writing my own plane notes, I was thinking if it is a good idea to upgrade to the Max2. Do you think that for hand writing the upgrade will make a big difference? Moreover as I am reading very often before going to sleep do you think that using the Max 2 will be comfortable and not so much of a problem for its weight and size? I am asking because I will eventually sell my loved N96ML :) Thanks

A question about rooting the n96ml+

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 11:01:21 GMT

Has anyone successfully done this? I recently tried debian gnuroot (which does not require root), but my n96ml+ only has a 1gb data partition, so I need to root; but I dont feel confident as I read posts here about bricked n96ml's. If anyone has any advise that would be great. Many thanks.

Sunday NYTimes

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 09:02:24 GMT

Hi Kovid - The NYTimes publishes their sunday edition usually starting on Friday night and it's available for several days after. Would you be interested in a separate recipe just for the Sunday NYT? I realize the daily one does that job on Sunday, but I prefer to download Sunday's on Friday night but also have the chance to download a missed copy on Monday or Tuesday, so it feels special enough to maybe be worth it. Thoughts?

Calibre 3.22: Missing "Remove unused CSS rules"

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 07:11:16 GMT

After installing calibre 3.22, I amiss in the editor under Tools the "remove unused CSS rules" function which I use a lot. Is this now part of the new "upgrade book internals"? And if so, where is now the according "merge identical CSS rules" setting? :chinscratch:

Request: ability to add notes to series

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 01:25:33 GMT

I have a large number of books and I'd say at least 50 series. When compiling the books into series I have difficulty in determining a website that can be "trusted" to display the correct series order and which books are in it. Would it be possible to include additional data (another text field) attached to the series where one could write up some notes about the series? This might be the website address and/or other pertinent data. I currently use for mainly scifi series and for anything else. Sometimes neither works and I have to resort to searching the web. If I do happen to find multiple sources they will often differ in order and inclusions. It would be nice when revisiting a series, find out where I got the original data from (even if it may not be accurate). At least I don't start second guessing myself and re-ordering the series when I get new information. Thanks (in advance) Terry

SelectedItems in Ebook Editor

I am developing a renaming plugin that will do similar thing as request_change_ext function in the *FileList* class ( However, i don't seem to understand where is .selectedItems() coming from in request_rename_common? Can someone led some light on it, please?

Downloading to wrong file location

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 19:58:02 GMT

Device: Samsung Android tablet running Calibre Companion Calibre Companion *Formats and Folders* is set up such that downloads from Calibre go to this file location: /storage/emulated/0/Calibre_Companion/News/ However, they are actually downloading to: /storage/emulated/0/Calibre_Companion/News/News/ (yes, an additional /News folder inside.) It's not causing any specific trouble but it shouldn't be doing that and perhaps some future revision will break this...?

Which plugin for PB InkPad 3?

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 18:14:11 GMT

I asked this in the PB forum section too, but figured here might be the best place: Calibre comes with several Pocketbook plugins/drivers, but none of them is specifically for the InkPad 3. Which of the existing ones should I use? By default, Calibre doesn't recognize the device.

Hello guys; I'm new here. I've just bought Pocketbook Basic 3 but I can't set the power off logo correctly. If I set the power logo off function "none" the logo looks the same.. How can I do ? Thanks; Roberto.

"The..." series all sorted together

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 16:03:40 GMT

I tried searching the forum but not getting a hit. Is there a way when looking at the Series filter in CC to have the series sort by what Calibre calls library order? So basically the series are sorted ignoring articles like "The"?

Series sort order in edit metadata window

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 15:58:10 GMT

I am surprised that the sort order for series in the metadata edit dropdown is not the library sort. Is there a way to have it sort so all the "The" series are not grouped together?
