Ah, I must have missed the wrap request! Glad to see it's on the list.

scrolling is a bad idea on E-Ink, better to wrap them or pan if needed depending on where you are seeing them.

See message #1 in this thread (ie, go to page 1, read the very first message). I try to keep it edited to include most of the (reasonable) things that folks suggest.

I just got the 5" Pocket Pro this week. I haven't read throlugh all of the free books yet. I tried different fonts. My older eyes need fonts that are thicker, or with a Bold option. Thin lettering is hard for me to read. Laser retina surgery tore up some of the rods and cones in my eyes, so bold fonts are easier to read. I have good eyesight, its just low-light or thin letteting is difficult to see well.

I'll check some of the fonts, and see if particular txt ebooks are easier for me to read than other fonts. I'll post to let you know.

All of them I see as "?"
Simple solution. Embed the font(s) needed to see what it is you want to see. ePub supports embedded fonts very nicely.

I want to suggest the ability to rotate counter clockwise in addition to the current rotation. Maybe as rotation sub-menu in Setting.

You can do that currently with FB2 files. I absolutely love using FB2, has alot of flexibility but currently no reader really supports nor encourages its use.

Can we at least get an option to "Remove from List" for the "Recently read" list?
2 Reasons: I really use the list as "Recently Reading", since I tend to have a number of subjects "In Progress" :P
1) A wrong or unwanted title,image or format was viewed.
2)I finished that title (but don't want to delete the book from my reader.

I have a question about highlighting... I see someone posted here they'd like to see that capability added, and I agree. Is this something that can be done with firmware, or would it need to be in a future product release?

Highlighting (or marking-up of documents) requires some method of selecting a specific block of text, which really requires some form of touchscreen (any other method would be pretty brutal to use much), as well as the software (in the firmware, ie, the operating system code) to support it. The latter could be done to any platform, but again, it would be pretty brutal to use without a touchscreen device.

Ekaser, thank you for the information. I would really like the ability to highlight, but I don't want it enough to go with a touchscreen device. From what I've read about them, it's not worth the loss of quality. I think I'll just stick with bookmarks, when I'm ready to get mine. Thanks!

Don't give up on touch-screens all-together. Technology marches on. There are already touchscreens that use a 'pen' to write with that have NO (ZERO) impact on the quality of the display, and there are technologies "right around the corner" that will allow "finger touch" control that also have no impact. Of course, whether these will appear on a device you want and are willing to pay for is another matter...
