Yet another feature request, which seems easy to implement. In file browser, report the free space of the device, both for internal storage, as well as SD card.

Incidentally, it seems that in the latest firmware release, 1.8.20121113, the file reading statistics do not work.

I'm only uploading one PDF. As it turns out, I think all PDFs give me the same problem (margins and custom zoom levels not remembered after closing and re-opening).

For what it's worth, I am using the most recent M92 firmware (from November 13th).

I have experienced the same problem with the few pdf files that I have used so far (a study guide from Cybex and a magazine).

Better feature-rich and aesthetically sensitive support for docx, mobi and epub files!

Could be possible if USB OTG becomes enabled and BT driver for keyboard added.

No need for a new hardware. M92 is able to do it just now. Only a bit of software is missing...

Would it be possible to add support for ".ps" (PostScript) and ".eps" (Encapsulated PostScript) files (Ghostscript supports them, if that matters)?
Quite many scientific articles exist in these formats only.

Improve de EPUB reader.

I know that the focus is on the PDF reader, but I've many technical books in EPUB.

I 'd like to see a better support for EPUB files and use the PDF reader to read EPUB with at least one modification : the possibility to set the margins. If it's not too hard, the possibility to change the font too.

Thanks Booxtor, if you could make something for this

Would it be possible to add the possibility to have multiple pdf files opened simultaneously?
While reading scientific articles and books, I often need to "compare" paragraphs coming from different files (well, actually, I often need to "compare" paragraphs coming from the same file, too).
So, a quick way to "switch" between several "opened" files would be very convenient.
(Well, this has probably been already asked, so I just want to add +1.)

PDF Reader : margin odd/even.

I 'd like to set the margins for page odd or even in the PDF Reader with different values.

With equal values, I must shift (pan) the viewport left then right.

Hello,
I would like to have the ability to adjust the time until shutdown if I turn the reader in Standby mode by myself by pushing the on/off-Button.

The fixed 5 minutes are to short for me. Mostly when I want to continue reading the reader is already switched off

It would be nice to have folowing options:
5 min; 10 min; 15 min; 30 min

It is posible using free application OFTM file manager. You may set almost any time separately for Standby and for Shutdown. It works fine.

And also someone wrote a script to set those times. I've never tried it, so I do not know, if it works and how difficult is to use it.

But I agree, it would be much more user friendly, to have this possibility natively in Onyx firmware.

Thanks for reply mono!
I searched a little bit in this forum but haven't found anything. Can you tell me which file contains the shutdown & standby time?
