aaah, I see ... i messed up threads
Thank you for replying. I appreciate that you took the time to type an answer and being frank about not caring about this particular issue
I'll see if I'll manage to hack something together. user_none documented APNXs very well after all. If I fail at python I'll just resort to having the page number display in the body of text. it'll be ugly but at least it will work in any ereader ever.
Sadly page numbering is a must for scholar/research books and articles. PDFs are the most easy solution but they don't fit well in a 6" kindle screen.
