Rather than upload a copyrighted book, I would rather use a small epub that I use to test Marvin on the iPad. All the paragraphs should be justified, and all paragraphs except 4 and 4a should be indented. On my Samsung Galaxy Note 2, nothing is justified, and none of the paragraphs are indented. Monospace doesn't work, extra whitespace in a <div> doesn't work, line-height doesn't work... I hope it's just me being stupid, but I can't figure it out. Thanks for taking a look.

Unfortunately CR doesn't support more than one link to css, I hope it will be supported in the future. In order to see indentation in this epub you might edit testpage.html. Now it looks like:
Code:
  <link href="../Styles/stylesheet.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
  <link href="../Styles/page_styles.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
It should work, if you will comment link to page_styles.css or just place link to stylesheet.css below page_styles.css. Sure it is not solution, just workaround for CR deficiency in css support.

Yes! That worked much better. Thank you. CR still doesn't use line-height or monospace, but at least <div> spacing and indentation are correct. For now I will use this workaround, and keep my fingers crossed that CR will someday support multiple stylesheets. Thank you!

I downloaded you epub and put it down to one of my tablets. When I opened it up with Mantano it looked exactly as you had intended. I opened it up with Cool Reader and saw the problems that you described.

When I opened it up with Sigil I notice that you had two stylesheets. Cool Reader doesn't like @Page so I deleted it with its reference. This cleared the indent problem.

I have never been able to get embedded fonts or negative margins working with Cool Reader so I quit trying.

There is always a work around for the negative margin problem, but I think you're kinda stuck with line-height: and font stuff as far as Cool Reader is concerned.

Sorry I couldn't have been of more help.

I will give Mantano a try again. I had tried it earlier, but liked the CR interface better. Now I'll settle for something that works. At least I know what the problem is and can (mostly) work around it. Thanks to everyone who helped out with this issue.

Wow! I just tried Mantano Lite, and it displays the epub's internal css perfectly! Even monospace and line-height! I am so impressed. Going back to play with it some more... I will probably buy the pro version. Wow. Nice. Thanks.

P.S. how about "height:100%"? this is so necessary for cover pages...

It will be implemented, but not in nearest future.
(I can implement small-caps, if it's useful).


Can embedded display of coverpages on full page replace this property?
You can see how it's done for FB2 book covers. I can enable the same for EPUB.

I've finally given up on this. For now. Sounds like 'float' will be added at some point but since it's 'non trivial' ... I kept wondering why a natively inline html tag like <img would be set to display:block in the epub.css. Here's the answer.

A lot of the epubs I've made for myself include illustrations including drop-caps and text-wrap is essential to their presentation IMHO. I've spent a considerable amount of time tracking down these graphics and incorporating them into my books. I was excited about the automatic android ability to enlarge graphics to fullscreen so I would be able to avoid getting up to speed on linking to fullscreen versions of them and back in the html.

I've read this entire 54 page thread in hopes that I was simply lacking knowledge but, alas, it's seems it just isn't part of Cool Reader at this stage.

I haven't quoted it here but there is at least one other post referring to technical books that should be presented in this fashion also.

Of course, the books can be read without text-wrap but without the text and graphics appearing simultaneously on the screen it becomes cumbersome to me.

I'm a problem solver so tend to see 'the problem.' Let me be clear that my opinion of Cool Reader couldn't be better -- I love it. Superior work and well done!, Buggins et al. Cool Reader continues to reside on my phone and will get some use.

As a final, desperate attempt I've just installed and tested Aldiko on my Galaxy Note II and Aldiko doesn't appear to have this capability either so I'll stick to my Kobo Touch for now.

There is also a wiki page on this reader. It describes what CSS is supported although it may be a bit out of date.

Hello, I belong to a readers comunity in Spain, many of us would really appreciate to see a new feature implemented in CR3 for Android. We would like not to be limited to the use of only one dictionary at a time. The reasson is simpple, while we use GoldenDict for regular dictionaries the way in which we consult Wikipedia is through Aarddict. So we have to change "Settings" in order to switch between Wikipedia offline and regular dictionaries...

We would really appreciate if a feature like the use of several dictionaries at the same time was implemented.

example: If you have selected only one dictionary the the dictionary button acts as it does now, but,

If you have selected several dictionaries it drives you to a menu where you can select the desired one... think it woul be nice

Thank you.

Cool Reader will not load PG epub edited by Sigil

When I edit a Project Guttenberg epub using Sigil and try to open with Cool Reader, the epub will not load. It will load with FBReader.

I'm using Cool Reader 3.1.22-3 on a Nexus 7.

Edit 1. Tested a Project Guttenberg epub edited using a text editor [gedit]. It opens with Cool Reader. So Sigil must add something that causes this problem with Cool Reader. I'm using Sigil 0.6.2.

Edit 2. Tested a Project Guttenberg epub opened in Sigil with Pretty Print Tidy enabled; saved the epub without making any alterations. The epub fails to load with Cool Reader, but loads with FBReader.

Yeah I have been using it for years first with my hanlin v3 now with my rooted nook touch the developer buggins seems to have stopped working on it now as havent seen him on any of the forums he frequent in months its sad as he had plans of adding sync between devices. Now dropbox opening its api and google also introducing cloud for app developers it is something that becomes quite feasble for developers without having to host or run a server themselves

Hello all!
So, this is my first post in this forum, really registered only because of this very thread. Forgive me any strange wording, I try my best, but English is not my mother tongue.
Istarted reading ebooks instead of dead trees back in the days of monochrome Palm devices, and while I have gone with the times and switched over to ePubs, there are still 563 (I just checked) eReader PDB files in my library.
I currently mostly use a 1024x768 8" Jellybean tablet, when I don't read on my cellphone (and yes, some built-in sync function would be nice).
But the problem I have is that somewhere in the 3.0.56-x line, PDB support deteriorated to the point that it's not really usable anymore. I just went through a brute force sourceforge download-and-install routine and sent a couple of selected PDBs through cr3:
3.0.56-7 is the last version I could find that can display all but 2 books of my test suite. I know that those PDBs were generated from PML with different versions of Dropbook, so that's surely one factor.
Later versions of cr3 either
- display the letter a in empty lines
- show the source pml (while also correctly formatting it) including the document header, but not showing images
- totally crash (especially with the very PML Reference ebook, found in my library unchanged since 2004, and still in the zip at http://www.memoware.com/?global_op=d...&file_id=16786 )
Fo me, that means reading ePubs with the current market version, but having to go back to the -7 from above for PDBs.
I'd be happy to assist with beta testing on Windows and Android, and can supply some reference files (others, I can't legally).
Buggins? Ideas?

Hello all!
So, this is my first post in this forum,
Any one has idea about how to make the coverpage in normal size? I'm using the latest version - 3.1.2-33

Images not displayed in coolreader desktop version

Cool reader (3.0.56.42) do not seem to display images of ebooks. Is there any way to force it?

Also are there any development at all happening in the desktop client?
