Manual?

Hi there,

i recently updated my m92 to the latest 1.8 Firmware (from 1.6) and got quite confused about the handling in the new pdf reader. Is there some kind of manual somewhere around which helps to get into it?

New manual is being prepared.

Some instructions by Booxstor, how things work in a new pdf reader are in this thread no more than 1 month back.

You may set as your default reader an old pdf reader, if you prefer it or want to wait for a manual.

I would say that the new pdf reader is let's say beta-version approaching release candidate state. Hopefuly we'll have stable pdf reader soon.

I like a new pdf reader and prefer it to old one. But the fact, it is not fully finished and stable should be expressed.

Bug 1.8 (1.8.20121113) : sleep mode

I can't remember if someone has already talk about what I describe, if some does it : sorry for that.

In landscape and page mode with a PDF file, after some minutes the screensaver appears. When I push the power button, the text appears but the buttons are inactive. Impossible to change a page, only the exit button is usable and the standard menu with all icons appears. I must select my file again.

ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/do...ooks/handbook/

It just hangs at some point. The old reader opens the file, but throws errors all the time. Is this thread the right one to report this problem? If not, could you please point me into the right direction? Thanks!
The page 4 seems to cause the problem.

I've used PDF-Shuffler under Linux and exported the file. The file's size is 13 MB and the exported file's size is only of 7.3 MB.
There is no problem with the exported file with the new PDFReader.

So where do we continue to report the bugs, here or somewhere else ?
In my opinion Onyx should setup their own system and post the link here

It seems that the new version introduced a bug when resuming the reading. before I was able to put the reader in stand by for days and press the button again and the reading was resuming from where I left
Now it seems that the reader is freezing a little bit or it doesn't respond to commands (page up/page down/landscape mode/the new pdf reader) ..when it finally react it exits the document without warning.

Just to clarify: is this a bug introduced with 1.8.20121113 or with 1.8.20121101? I am asking because I still am on 1.8.20121101 and am wondering whether to update.

Thanks
J.

Sounds good as long as you collect the bugs from here. I will continue to post them here. A couple of messages earlier somebody was suggesting we should have a bug tracking system and a link was posted so I was confused by that.

@HerrB: the bug was introduced with the latest version

PS: ok ..so the asana link points to something that you manage
It will still be better if you filter and aggregate the requests comming from here just not to bother the programmers to filter duplicates and to confuse them. If we post the bugs ourselves we might not be fully aware of what other people suggested or what would be a duplicate

Well, it seems to me that the stylus driver got worse in "1.8.20121113" with respect to "1.7 20120927".
In the "old" version, if the "stylus" became "stuck", I simply moved it up by about 0.5 to 1 cm and then down again (or "out" from the screen and then "in" again) and it was working again.
In the "new" version, this trick not always works ... it seems to me that I sometimes need to try to "click" something, then I need to move the stylus "out" and "in" and then it works again. Also, it seems to me that if I don't use the stylus for a longer time (but it's "outside" all the time), then the problem appears again when I try to use it. Sometimes I even need to perform this "out" + "in" actions twice in order to get it working again.

I agree.
I also can see this behaviour very frequently!

Hi Booxtor, I was trying to get the PDF reader to read books that have two pages on one sheet, such as those: http://www.artlebedev.ru/everything/deich/ . Unfortunately, it proved to be very painful. Do you think it is possible to introduce the option of defining N reading regions by two points and having the right and left buttons jump between them? I believe that would be the best solution to the problem...

As long as we are working on improving of margin settings you can try following settings:
Page Settings -> Custom margins ->80
Reading ->Paper mode + Customize Zoom ->210%

(please note that settings have to be set after each reopening of a book and after resume from standby mode page turn buttons are not working. It will be fixed in the next update within of a week)

Hi guys, hi Booxtor

just updated to the last firmware in my M92. Working good! Few questions/suggestions:

-Text annotations and highlights should not overwrite the existing annotation file by a new export, it should be appended. Any way this can be done?

-the now VERY comfortable multiuse toolbar should be more customizable by the user. For instance, i work mainly with the annotation bar and need still a lot of time to reach the vocabulary when i find a unknown word! On the contrary i don't use the hand tool, and almost never use the sketch tool, so they are perfectly useless on the toolbar...

Would be nice to add the vocabulary or any other tool to the preferred bar (or at least add the vocabulary to a configurable pop up menu)

Thanks for any hint, bye bye!

Guido
