There are just a few things I'd like to see:

2) Progress bar (with chapter marks) in the bottom bar (I keep wanting to know how far I am from the end of the chapter)

3) Swipe down to enter text selection mode (I used this all the time)
Happy birthday!

... and... SO DID I! Yay! And I notice the same things you mention, I love it. Plus, I would also really like 1 and 2.

I would like side loaded ebubs to be treated the same way as Kobo purchased epubs. Name at the top, chapter recognition, and an option for the Glo to ignore any embedded formatting.

Also fonts on side loaded epubs look a tad squashed compared Kobo purchased content. That is likely something I could fix in Calibre but again it would be great if this was something that could be taken care of by the reader itself.

The issue that's bugging me the most right now is the incredibly slow search function. I'm seeing it on my Glo with most books on the SD card, and on my Mini with everything in the main memory. It's searching in "real time," but it's so slow that I've long finished typing the search term by the time the first letter of the term shows up, and if I've misspelled something I have to wait for it to finish and then start all over. I'd rather be able to type my search term and SEE IT, and then have it search.

Also, not having characters like the "@" and a period on the default keyboard is crazy-making.

1. Add an option which cound disable showing the page number at bottom.
2. TOC in tree fomat, can expand and fold according to TOC levels.
3. Let customer to customize fonts for web browser.
4. The minimum light level is still too strong, give more range.

I have a very little request for the next firmware

when in landscape mode with CBZ/CBR files (manga and comics) it can't scroll down. it scroll down only if zoommed in a little bit, but in this way it is not usable really belive me. I belive it's really bad because someone need to scoll also left and right, there too much movment and the black refresh of the screen begin to be a pain. can you patch the firmware so that then it will be possible to "scroll up and down" without the need to "zoom in"?

thx you so much!!!!!!!!


p.s. there is another issue but it is really minor: when chance the page in landscape mode with CBZ/CBR files the next page start from the bottom not from the up. if it is possible to set it that it start form the viceversa? this one is not a priority absolutley! thx!

Hi. Metadata support for CBZ/CBR files would be nice.
I like to have a consistent database but the lack of metadata for these files is disappointing. Since it's a rather simple format, adding an XML/text file describing metadata (done by ComicRack apparently) to the archive should be enough to provide such information. Apart from being easy to implement, I don't think it would cause any error when the archive is read on another device that doesn't support it, assuming this metadata file would be simply ignored.
Thank you!

I belive this Kobo Glo bug is very important to fix too, because it would make Kobo loose buyers if not solved (take a look to post #14 to understand what I mean): http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=199944

Yes please, especially 1 and 4.

Additionally, 1b: add an option to see page numbers per total pages instead of per # of pages per chapter in kepubs.

please reset the lower bar to that from version 2.2.1 and lower.
kill the percent monitor and make the button Library come back.

its a horror that can not go back to the shelves and must go through the start screen.
please return the libary button or set a option to change it.

I would very much like an option to change the way paragraphs are separated in kobobooks (kepubs). I hate the way each paragraph starts after an empty line. It's just ridiculous. I know, internet is full of paragraphs separated with that style, and that's fine, and I might even like it like that on my computer screen. But I've never ever ever ever seen a fiction pocket book with such a ridiculous space wasting layout. It's especially frustrating with authors that write very short paragraphs (eg. one line; one sentence), or when there's lots of dialogue that often starts a new paragraph each time a different character says something.

I know, you can remove these empty lines with calibre, but sometimes I like to be able to read a book straight away after buying from kobo without having to go through the hassle of downloading the DRM epub, converting it and sideloading it.


And while I'm busy requesting things, I'd like to add my long time annoyance once more: please give us the option to view page numbers per total pages instead of per page number per chapter total. Sigh.

This isn't a firmware request, but it is a bit of a suggestion to Kobo and I'm not sure where else to put it. Sorry.

I downloaded the user guide for my Goo from the Kobo site

It is in PDF format. How about making the guides into .ePUB (or Kepub) and putting it on your Kobo by default or letting us download it that way from the Kobo site or store for free?
