and no /mnt/ext1/system/config/extensions.cfg where can add new formats.

I did not find clear instruction how to install it on my PB912 and I would'nt want to mess something up.

Do you know exact instructions for 912 regarding keyboard and reader? Thanks.

i was following these instructions for comic reader: http://www3.telus.net/rkomar/pbimageviewer/

File structure is the same for all PBs. If you use a WIN PC just omit the /mnt/ext1/ part and go to [DRIVE NAME]: Pocketbook912. There are all the folders. Etensions.cfg has to be created (or copied from any source here in this forum, just search).
For further questions on *.cbz I suggest to ask them in the respective thread and not here.

For keyboard questions there is an own thread to be searched, I only know what worked for me and this I told you.
Regards...

Wanted: it would be nice to have an option to write notes on bookmark level, sort of "post it"
Also, when list of bookmarks is shown, date time when bookmark is added, and custom bookmark name would be useful.

EDIT:
So I found out that bookmark can be renamed afterwards, but it would be nise PB to offer Bookmark naming in the moment of adding to the page.

porga, you can actually do at least some of what you suggest with a workaroun - dinstead of bookmarking, add a note by selecting a piece of text (even just a letter) and edit it (you can edit its name too). You won't see the date, though.

My humble suggestion here follow

All models:

- possibility to open a "terminal"
- possibility to configure background and foreground color, that means black over white (default), but also white over black. In some case, the last mode could be better.

About Pocketbook pro 912:
- zooming via stylus in a flexible way, as Onyx Book M92 (see this video to have a concrete idea), with the possibility to come back quickly to the previous view.

And one thing is a must (as far as I can see):

Enable possibility for SMB network share, so files can be transferred to PB using WLAN.
This is much better option than constantly plugging USB or removing SD card (to prevent warning out connectors).

If you use calibre you can enable your PC as a local server to access Calibre via WiFi. Just look under -> Settings -> Network Server how to proceed

With SMB access, I meant same share level as over USB mount.

What about being able to have a snapshot of the whole screen, independently in you are reading or not, and save it as a picture/image?
Basically, such a feature is available in any physical keyboard by "stamp"/"print" button and, in my opinion, it is really useful.

mixtli, this feature is indeed there - it depends which buttons you have it associated with. Generally, if you light press the power button when the device is already on, a quick menu should appear with various icons, including that of a camera - click on it, and you will take a screenshot.

Thanks, Paola! I did not notice it.

Where snapshots are stored? I do not succeed by search for them.
Is there any technical manual about other "hidden" features?

which device do you have? They are in bitmap format, and are numbered consecutively as scr001.bmp, scr002.bmp, and so on. I have them in a directory "My Pictures" on the 903, and no, they shouldn't be hidden.

Paola, I have a Pocketbook pro 912.

I thought that the possibility to take snapshots was not declared in the manual (that's why I spoke about "hidden" features), but I was wrong.

Finally, snapshots are stored in "screens" folder on the device, but are not visible via Library view. I needed to open a Photo view and browse to that folder to get them displayed.

That's would also be a feature all/many other readers lack. Some have at least have a feature to require a PIN to access the device. Pocketbook has none at all so far.
