Functions missing in Calibre viewer?

I am interested in exploring Calibre. I am having some problems with it at this time.

The viewer seems to have a minimum of functionality. Features listed in the user manual do not appear in the viewer that I can find. That includes bookmarks and font size. I cannot find these buttons in the viewer. Other buttons missing: "full screen" button.

The preferences pane in the app does not have a preferences section for the reader. The reader preferences only include a background preference and hyphenation.

The viewer does not remember the last read position either.

I am running Calibre 0.6.46 on Windows VISTA. I am reading ".lrf" files.

Any help you can provide is appreciated!

OK, change format?

When I converted the book to MOBI format, it seems to have the extra features in the reader. Don't understand this. The lrf format does not support bookmarks or full screen? Not sure why...

LRF files uses a dedicated (legacy) viewer. All other formats use the viewer referenced in the user manual.

Wow!

I chose LRF strictly at random. Bad luck! Thanks for the tip.
