Bump on this. Any help?

Is there a way I'm not seeing to adjust the author sort? (Cool Reader 3.0.57.14)

All ebooks have author's name as: (I = initial)
Last, First
Last, First, I. I.
Last, I. I.

However, author names are displayed And Sorted alphabetically as:

First Last, (Eric Flint, instead of Flint, Eric)
I. Last I. (J. Walters, N. instead of Walters, N. J.)
I. Last, First I. (A. Decandido, Keith R. instead of Decandido, Keith R. A.)

So, is there a way to have all authors listed by Last Name?

Sticky Note on the page CoolReader 3.1.2-27

Hello..
Newby here..just signed up today..So..I have a question about Cool Reader..

Is it possible to add a sticky note to the page, add text to that sticky note.?

I have used the highlite function, then add comment to that highlite, which brings you to another box..but this hides the page you are reading..

This is my wish: add a yellow sticky note (color optional) to (anywhere) on the page, add text to that sticky note, which is viewable, overlayed on the page I'm reading.

I adore the hyperlink function, and color change of the hyperlinks, this is one reason among many, that I use CoolReader..added sticky notes would complete the app. to perfection for me..

Is development ongoing for this wonderful App.?
I would purchase this app. if possible..but I guess a reasonable donation will do..

THANKS for any assistance..

I can not answer any of your questions regarding feature requests, but I can say that I have seen continual development by Buggins on this app for some years now. I first started using Coolreader on a now obsolete e-ink ereader, and now on Android. There was recently a major change in the look and feel of the Android Coolreader, and I like it even better now.

Well, it works fine for me with the same version. Are you sure you used Modify Epub or converted to actually embed the metadata summaries?

The summaries also show up Moon+ Reader (Pro); I have been switching between it and Cool Reader to see which I like better as they both basically work for epub and mobi. The only real problem with Cool Reader concerns my previous post regarding author sort.

For anyone who might be interested, I made a small app to sync last read position between a PC version of Cool Reader (Windows or Linux) and an Android device. Details here. I'm looking for testers. I doubt the Cool Reader author wants his thread cluttered with comments about this app, so it's probably better to post comments on the blog (or a new thread).

This looks very interesting especially to another Linux user like me. My only problem is the Samsung Android tablet I received for Christmas has a fault and has to go back to the shop for replacement. Until I get the replacement I can't try this out but I will as soon as I can.

ectoplasm, this sounds to be the thing I need but there is a problem, isn't there always.

I don't use windows or linux on my PC so your app would need to be ported to OS/2 just as CoolReader has been, therefore I must ask if the source code is available to download and would you mind it being ported to OS/2.

I think the best way is using an app direcly on android device for pushing position on ssh server.

I use coll reader on few android device, but not on pc. And possibily to pushing from android directly can syncing to pc/android directly without pc

But I verry happy for looking possibility to sync and hope you can port it to android


great job man

Sorry my english is not perfect
