Update time for the orizon :)

I was cheeking facebook before going to bed, and saw this :

Love the new updated home page. It keeps track of your last four opened books. So if like me you read several books at the same time, you have easy access.

Lots of other changes in the interface.

Installed the update, and apart from taking longer than expected, it worked fine.

One question to the community; does anyone know what the old Default font was. It is now a different font and I find it slightly harder to read and I was hoping to look for the original font and install it.

Excellent new home page.

My one complaint about the update the big bookstore link at the bottom. what used to fit four links now only fits one. also the bookstore is not much use to me as it only sells books written in french(nothing bad about french just that I don't speak it!).
what exactly does hyphenation do?

Actually, I have noticed with this update that the Font Family section is all screwy. I don't get a font anything like the one I selected. This might be the cause of my problem with the default font since the update.

Cuts the words to avoid big spaces when justifying.
A rather good job accentually. Hyphenation using mobi sometimes disturbed me with weido cuts, that happens less with ePub.

So what is 'night mode' and where is it?
Is hyphenation something that can be turned on or off (I can't find anything in the Settings).
Has anyone else noticed the weird font problems?
Is there a way of turning off a vertical swipe taking you to the first page of the book, I have lost my position several times to this.
To be honest I am not a new fan of this update - the new home page is great, and the new folders are nice, but too many things that are either not obvious, or not helpful.

Night mode, hyphenation are in parameters / display.

There was some changes with fonts. Not sure what they do and what they are. What exactly is bothering you ?

At last I can use my Orizon again, thanks to the latest update. The software now performs almost exactly like the Opus. It handles my library of circa 3150 books with ease; I can make it look exactly the same as the Kindle by installing the Caecilia font and selecting the 'embolden' font option together with antialiasing/'sharpen'. The Orizon is now the reader it should have been a year ago.

Is Caecilia that good ? I've been wondering about buying it, But it's a bit expensive.

If you like the look of the kindle, then I'd say get it. To achieve the Kindle look on my BeBook Neo I convert from epub to mobi and then you've got a whole range of font adjustments available. The only reader that fails the Kindle test is the Sony 650. But then that can't cope with large libraries either.
