'Jump to page'

Is there any sort of 'jump to page' function and/or trick to move it forward instead of one page at a time?

Accidentally reset the book I was reading, and now I am not looking forward to pressing the button 500 times to get back to where I was reading. (Big book)

Use the table of contents function to get you to a chapeter that is closer to where you were and then page in until you are at your page.

There is currently no 'go to' functions for specific page numbers on the KOBO.

But I think you are joining the ranks of us who would like to see that implimented

HINT HINT KOBO>>>

Alas, this was a pdf i turned into an epub in calibri. Its all one big chapter.

It would not be so bad if i could just hold down the button and it would flip through the pages....

oh well.

Yes, this would be an feature that is obviously missing from the Kobo (I don't mean obvious to you as in you should have known about this not being there, but obvious as in "What the hell?" after you look for it).

Kobo and "pages" (how traditional!) are not good bed-fellows and we all pray for their eventual reconciliation (or entire dissolution depending on how long it takes).

I don't know why they have not done it before!! Is it that difficult to program, after all it tells you how many pages in the book when you open it.

Soooo many have asked for it but I just cannot understand why they have not implemented it

How do Canadians read books?

The rest of the world wants to go to specific pages!

We Canadians read books in a way like we do anything else: straight forward, never turn, never jump... lol
