some newbie issue

hi there I'm a new owner of a 622 touch and a new member here.

I got it yesterday, but in the previuos day I 'studied' this forum.
I've a couple of issue, if they are.

I updated the firmware to the last one (not this rc)

to perform a backward page with gestures or button i've to tap/push twice. Once give a blanck screen. Is not boring, just to know.

I could'n find the calibration menu

Are these two things the same in this rc?

Thanks

Paolo

Does PB plan to restore it in new firmware?
Best regards.
I read about it once but never managed to do it, neither in old nor in the newer versions.
With the latest 4.0 I have enough buttons to spare, so I set rotation on "long press menu" instead of dictionary

Hello and welcome

a little more information would be helpful. Is it a PDF that you are reading? In this case the mentioned behaviour is quite normal and will extend to the newest version as well.
Reading an epub file it sometimes takes a second tap if you have used the buttons before. I'm not sure but I guess the touch needs to be reawakened to save energy, but this is no confirmed information.

For the screen there is no calibration-menu because it is capacitive. Calibration is only necessary with resistive touchscreens.

Hi troll05

You guessed right, I was reading djvu files

As the difference capacitive/resistive, I'm absolutely ignorant, I was just testing all the features reported in the owner manual.

many thanks for the answers

Frankly, I have no idea, are you sure the question was to me?

Actually I abandoned firmware upgrade until the themes with easy profile switching are available.

Best regards.

missed fuction

i'd like to point out that the new firmware miss the option hypenation on/off, so if you're reading something with wrong hypenation (I'm italian) that could became irritating

edit: that's a fault of adobereader, fbreader has that option...

I'm very unhappy with the 4.0 FW Upgrade. I miss the menu for Read-to-Speech. For PDF I miss the menu for zoom in/out and I miss the Reflow function. Last but not least I don't see my SD stick anymore from the PC.

Hallo de.einstein, welcome to MobileRead!

Falls ich Deinen Namen richtig interpretiere: Wir haben hier auch ein sehr aktives deutsches Pocketbook-Unterforum

in dem u.a. die letzte Firmware ausführlich diskutiert wird. Vielleicht findest Du dort Hilfe für Deine Probleme!

new firmware

I updated my firmware on the 622 to version D611.4.4.430 and I can no longer connect to my wifi router. It claims there is a configuration error. I tried with and without password om my router.
It's not completely impossible to connect, as I can connect to a open network in the neighborhood. I tried different channels. Strength is very good.
