Looks as apnx plugin doesn't work for azw3 files, only for mobi.
Would you please fix this?

I tested the plugin on one of my test books and can now see pages
if I open the book in Calibre. When I open the book in Kindle for PC
I cabt see the pages. I also cat see pages on the Book I really want to see pages on.
and when I but that book in the calibre Lib I get a DRM error.

What would you ssuggest to where I can get the pages to show on the kindle reader?

Ive been playing around with page count and the apnx generator and am starting to get an idea on how the pages are generated. The book that I ran apnx on is off by about 30 or so pages from the hard copy. But I do like that running apnx plugin does give me a go to page option and that the pages are listed at the bottom of the reader.
For My situation.....
I've created a table that cross references the locations to the actual HC Book pages
I.E. pg202=loc3456 this has help me and other folks in the class to more quickly
get to the right location in the kindle reader. ( I want to automate)
A few questions.
1 .Is there a way for me to hard code the page list-if so how?
I already created the cross reference table.(a lot of work to do that)
2. Ive been working on an external "Go to Page" apk that would
open the book and go to the appropriate page.
so far my app opens the book via the INTENT statement But Im struggling
to find the command that would actually go to a location that I request.
here the jave code so far...

Intent intent = new Intent();
intent.setAction(android.content.Intent.ACTION_VIE W);
File file = new File("/sdcard/Books/Testbook.prc");
intent.setDataAndType(Uri.fromFile(file), "application/x-mobipocket-ebook");
startActivity(intent);

Hopefully you know the command and how to invoke after the book is open.
ie goto location 4356.
I'm stuck.. Once I know the command I can create
if the else or a case satements.
Hope someone has suggestions
thx in advanced

Can't get the .apnx files to work with a .mobi on kindle paperwhite v2

Hi,

I was wondering if I could get some assistance. I've got a new kindle paperwhite v2 (firmware 5.4.2) and I've sideloaded a .mobi book.

I've used Calibre portable and I have installed the plug-in from the beginning of this thread v1.1.0. I've run the plugin and created an .apnx file for the .mobi book and it seemed to work and created the file almost instantly (it's about 2k in size of the same name - extension aside). I copied the .apnx file next to the .mobi file in the documents folder via USB and switched the kindle on. I selected the book and *no page numbers* just locations as before.

Any advice on what to do next to get it to work, or what i've done wrong?

Thanks.

Hi,

I installed the plugin, but there is no APNX button I can see; and what are the options for using the books you convert with pages? Can I send it to my Kindle for iPad and see the page numbers?

Thanks,

JM

What version of calibre are you using? This plugin is not yet compatible with calibre 2.0 and greater.

There is no longer any need for this plugin because Calibre has a built in APNX generator that generates the APNX on the fly when you send the book to the Kindle. You can create a custom column to put in the page number you want.

This plugin won't work with Calibre 2.x. So use the built-in Calibre functionality.

There is need for people that use "Save to disk", and this plugin should at least be updated to work with Calibre 2.x and to be able to use value from custom column (so you can get the same page number for Kindle device and Kindle for Android).

Calibre can generate the APNX file using a custom column. There's little need for an APNX when saving to disk because when you do send the eBook to the Kindle using Calibre, the APNX is generated for you. If you really want the APNX file, just pull it off the Kindle.

This is one plugin I don't see getting updated to work with Calibre 2.x as most of it's functionality is already present in Calibre.

@JWolf: Hint: Kindle for Android. I'm using that built-in function from the day one , so you don't need to teach me how it works.
Calibre's built-in apnx creation is part of the "Send to Device" process when sending books only to Kindle devices. It is not available for when I want to copy the same book to my Android phone , for which I would use "Save to disk" and choose "kindle" folder on my phone. So if I want to have page numbers when reading on my phone/Kindle for Android app (and I most definitely want that) I need to generate apnx file via this APNX Generator plugin (or manually copy apnx file from my Kindle PW1, at which point I might as well copy both the azw3 and apnx files form Kindle to my Nexus 4, and not use Calibre at all for sending books to my Nexus 4), which does not offer the ability to use page count from custom column. Because of that you get two different page counts for the same book, built-in generator used custom column value and APNX Plugin uses "accurate" algorithm.
