I believe you are right. BN has terrible support for the PUBIT publishers, B&N states that those guidelines apply to the NC. I just needed to get some independent confirmation. Thanks.

Red face I need help

I just got my Nook Color yesterday, and I pretty much got it, but Im still a little confused. Is there a way to copy-paste pictures from the Internet or text? I dont want to always have to pass pictures from my computer to my Nook and I dont want to have to memorize links or certain texts. So can anyone help me?

I don't have the stock OS anymore, so I can't confirm it works with B&N's browser, but in most Android browsers you long-press an image to bring up the "save image" option, which will probably save it in your Downloads folder. Same for text: long-press a word to highlight it, and there will be arrow-tabstop-thingies at either end of the highlighting to drag over the rest of what you want highlighted, then when you tap the highlighted text again, it will be copied to clipboard. I'm not sure if there's any kind of text editor that comes with the stock OS where you can paste it, but you could always drop it in an email to yourself.

1. To create a playlist on Nook, when you access your music through the app or through the sdcard or files menu, hold your finger for a few seconds on the song you want to use for a playlist. It'll pop up a menu that with options: Play, Delete, Add to Playlist. Select Add to Playlist. The meny choices are Current or New. Select New, then type in the name of the playlist. Boom, playlist created. Then just press for a few seconds the song(s) you want to add to that playlist, and select Add to Playlist - Name of the Playlist you created.

2. To change the order of songs in a playlist, when you have the playlist loaded, touch your finger to the left or right side of the songs list, and an icon with little lines on it pops up. You can drag the songs into whatever order you wish. This doesn't work, of course, if you have a shuffle mode on.

Hope this helps

Ive been looking for this, thank you!!!

My guess is yes. While I only travel within CONUS, no matter where I am at the B&N store is always there waiting for me.

You can also try Feedbooks.com. I believe they are out of France.

A copy of the image is saved to your Library in the folder /media/Screenshots in png format.

Tip: it just needs a quick simultaneous press so don't hold the volume button for too long or it can affect the image.
Had the darn thing for a year and never knew that. Thanks.

Press the power button once to go into ,what I call, "sleep mode" on ''sleep mode'' just press one more time for it to go to the "wake your nook up" screen . Hold down for around 5 seconds and it will turn all the way off wich I personaly don't like because it takes way to long to turn back on.

Welcome to mobileread

That's actually standard operating procedure--something positive that tablets inherited from their smartphone predecessors.

Now transfer the images to the NOOKcolor. Place them in the "Wallpaper" folder which is located in the "My Files" folder.
Thanks for this! I was wondering how to get different pictures as I am tired of looking at the old ones!!

I'm not sure if this has been discussed or not but I was wondering if anyone uses Calibre to add books to their Nook Color. I know when I add them on my SD card in my Nook they go into individual folders. I didn't know if anyone has figured out a way to "organize" those better than just how they are automatically transferred over. Any kind of help/tips will be greatly appreciated!!
Thanks

Yeah, I use calibre - but I'm not sure what you mean. The Nook UI doesn't actually show the folders calibre uses, it just shows the books as a list in the Books list and downloaded news in the Magazines list.
