Epub rendering bug on ka1

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 10:12:22 GMT

Ok i bought a ka1 I have one book converted to epub Very simple css style the same for every para But one chapter, the last few lines of a paragraph 'disappear' at the bottom of the screen and scrolling to the next page gives the start of the next-but-one para??? It's because the whole page is rendered about 1/2 inch too low. If i add a few x's to the end if the para, everything renders correctly. It's just this one para in the one book, same style as every other para and double checked in the live css box in calibre. This does look like a bug to me. What to do next?



Onyx Boox Max --- PDF reader with multiple tabs?

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 21:34:41 GMT

Hi all, Does anyone have a suggestion on which PDF reader has a good support for reading multiple PDFs on Onyx Boox Max device? I have tried Xodo PDF reader, but my first impression is that it does not work well on Onxy Boox Max device. In particular, the text in PDFs in not crisp/sharp. Is there a way to improve this in Xodo? Or are there alternative PDF readers that allow multiple tabs? Thanks!

Onyx boox m92 and m96 broken screen

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 17:11:32 GMT

Hello everyone. I have two onyx boox readers with broken screens - m92 and m96 universe. The distributor says that the damage is way beyond warranty and they won't replace the screens. I live in NY, United States and can't find any office that would replace the screens for me. I by myself can open reassemble the readers and order the screens, but by far I couldn't find the information of how to replace them. The most confusing part is whether the cables that connect the screen to the reader's body are just attached to it (so i can just pull them off with my bare hands and attach the ew screen the same way) - flex cables. or those cables are soldered to the reader's body so i will have to solder them back which is not doable for me. Also the model and voltage of the screen. I've encountered a few posts that stated that the model of the screen must be very particular and the screens on the same models of readers vary significantly. is it still up to date? Can i use the same model of the screen on both m92 and m96 ? May be I may use screen from amazon dx that seems the same? Still can't figure many questions. I would appreciate any help on the subject.



How to remove wifi password from Paperwhite 2?

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 15:57:08 GMT

Hello, I would like to stop this Kindle automatically connecting to wifi if a button is accidentally pressed (eg on suggested Wikipedia lookup whilst reading). It seems to be very easy for that to happen with this model - you don't have to go into the menu and make several choices before it connects (as with older models, which I'd prefer.) A while ago, as there seems to be no "forget" button for networks on it, I tried to change the password to one that didn't work with the network, and save it, but it looks like that didn't work as it accidentally connected again. Aside from changing the router password itself, is there any small hack that can be done for this? Would prefer not to jailbreak it fully (never done that before) and leave it in a state where it could potentially be resold if I ever needed to do that. Is



Aura Sleep cover and time of book cover viewing delay

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 10:52:22 GMT

Hi, When I open the Kobo sleep cover, it wakes up and show me the cover of the book but it is very very fast, I can't really see the cover itself. Is there a parameter somewhere to modify in order to say to the Kobo the delay to show the cover before to access the content of the book ? I think that 2 or 3 seconds may be a good choice. Thanx



Exporting highlights and notes to PC? (images))

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 08:39:24 GMT

Hi, recently bought paperwhite 2015 model and am having trouble with exporting highlights and notes. Basically i am reading a book which is not bought from amazon but is manually loaded in kindle, the book(mobi format), here and there has some really interesting images which very nicely explain the text that is read. In my inexperience with kindle readers i thought that highlighted image would also be exported with my clippings but only i can export is text although some images are also highlighted. Is there a way to export highlights and notes to PC with images not only text? Thanks for the time, with regards, vedri.



Kobo Aura H20 bottom space not removed via css.

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 08:01:37 GMT

I already have the following css in the book. I just added widows:0 and orphans:0 to the body property that was already part of the epub I had purchased but it's doing _nothing_ to reduce the bottom bar spacing thing. Top bar is removed, but I was trying to reduce the amount of wasted lines at the bottom as right now it looks like it's got ~3-5 lines between the bottom of the book and the "status" bar thing. I like having page number at the bottom but would like to reduce the wasted lines some. Code: --------- body { -epub-hyphens:auto; -webkit-hyphens:auto; widows:0; orphans:0; } --------- for some reason kobo also hates line-height aka space between the lines. I have tried modifying the line-height from the standard x.yza it doesn't do % nor em but it's perfectly valid css it's not letting me increase the spacing for some unknown reason.



Kindle Touch firmware 5.3.7.3 Audio Recorder

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 02:44:52 GMT

I don't know if this has been done before but I successfully made a kindle touch audio recorder that works on firmware 5.3.7.3 using a couple older versions of the audio recorder to make it. Your device has to be jailbroken and have kual running on it. Just download the attached zip folder and then extract it. Add the extracted folder to the kual extensions folder and then run killall cvm with usbnetworking/shh. Hope it works for you.

Aura Kobo Aura Edition 2 - SD Card

Mon, 16 Jan 2017 09:00:19 GMT

Hello, my new Kobo Aura Edition 2 is going to arrive in 8 days. I was wondering if it actually contains an SD card inside the case or is it soldered, I don't want to void my warranty. I've read and searched a lot, but most people say it might contain it. I want a solid answer. :xmas: :thanks:



Touch Search in book stopped working

Mon, 16 Jan 2017 03:24:40 GMT

My Kobo Touch has worked fine since upgrading to 3.19.5761, but in the last couple of weeks the search in book facility has stopped working properly. It will produce search results, but clicking on any just takes me to my current page. I've switched off/on, but am unwilling to try factory reset except as last resort. Any suggestions?



Need help with Cloud Collections

Mon, 16 Jan 2017 01:26:28 GMT

I have a dozen or so collections on my Paperwhite, but can't see them anywhere else. The PC app has the ability to set up collections, but doesn't sync with my PW collections. When I go to read.amazon.com there are no collections that I can see. When I go to Manage Your Content and Devices I can't see collections, though I think that once I did get a list of books with an indication of what collections they were part of. But I don't know how I got that. And finally, what exactly is the Cloud? Is that where the books I see in my Amazon account are stored, and from where they are downloaded to my PW, to my PC app or to read.amazon.com? Thanks for any clarification anyone can give me.
