I am back on 3.0.40-6. This version is working for me.

I have been using the SourceForge CoolReader releases since they become available much sooner than The Market versions. The external CSS seems to be working just fine for me. In fact, I just tried ENABLE DOCUMENT INTERNAL STYLES for an EPUB book, and after restarting CoolReader to try the new configuration, I found that CoolReader was still using my custom external CSS in the /.cr3 directory on the SD card. Right now, I can not seem to get CoolReader to use the CSS built inside the EPUB.
If you are getting your EPUB files from multiple sources then you may have different tag names in the document than the tag names in your custom CSS. For example, Calibre seems to like to add it's own name to a lot of tags. I build my own EPUB files using FB2EPUB, so my style tags are always the same. That way, my custom external CSS always produces the results that I want. I just finished checking all this out using CR3-0-43-11.APK, and my external custom CSS seems to be working just like I want it to with both EPUB and FB2 books.

Has anyone else noticed that every so often Cool reader will open with a completely black screen for the ebook? I can exit out and browse to open a second book with no problem, but it goes back to a black screen instead of displaying the ebook.

If I close and restart the Cool Reader app a couple of times it will eventually display the ebook again. It has happened on and off with different versions of Cool Reader.

This is on my Pandigital Novel running the latest 1/27/11 firmware.

Debug log from application would help to identify problem.
Could you send me log collected right after black screen? It can be saved to file using app like Android System Info.

I like the dual column landscape. Comes in very handy, especially for night time reading in bed. When switching from single column portrait to dual-column landscape I usually also have to scale down the font size. A very minor annnoyance.

If I may be bold enough to suggest a new feature: would it be possible to keep *separate* font size settings for single column and dual-column modes?

Just a thought.
Thanks for a very useful tool, Mr Buggins, sir.

CoolReader does not waste time scanning your entire collection like some readers do, just so the cover image can be extracted from the book file. Once the book has been opened one time the cover image thumbnail will always be in the file browser. For me that is a big plus, since I always hated Aldiko's unbearably long import time in searching just one folder. CoolReader makes books available in as many folders as you have books in, so pre-scanning for cover images could take even longer than Aldiko's already long scan time.

Ah Ha, I just double checked that myself.

I mostly read FB2 books, so that was the experience I was describing. For one book, I have both an FB2 version and an EPUB version, and it appears that you are correct as far as EPUB is concerned. Perhaps Buggins has not gotten around to extracting cover images from EPUB books yet? FWIW, the cover thumbnails feature works just fine for FB2 books.

I was looking for the epub thumbnails as well. Didn't understand why they aren't showing. Please make this feature available when feasible. Thank you.

steven- did you do a factory reset/data wipe when you installed your 2011 OP? I had the same issue until I went back and did that and I haven't had any problems since (I had the black screen and several lock-ups before). Perfect now.

Buggins--- cannot thank you enough. This is now far and away my favorite reader. Absolutely love all the options and controls you give us. I always read in night mode. 10 percent brightness was still too much (and 5 was not enough). But I set it at 10 and then changed the text color from white to gray and it is perfect. Definitely my default reader for all my ePubs from now on. Great work.

I can not get my file recognized and you can not get it ignored. So there is a bug concerning the custom css.
