Heads up for Buggins

An Ainol Novo7 Paladin arrived yesterday and I was unable to install CoolReader.

This tablet runs with a MIPS (JZ4770 - Xburst) processor and ICS 4.0.1. I updated to ICS 4.0.3 with the same results. I don't know if the problem is with MIPS or ICS, probably both. Google is pushing the MIPS architecture so I imagine we will be seeing more of these processors (they sell for about $2 USD and perform well with minimum power consumption).

Well, to revisit this thing...

Good news and bad news.

The good news: generally speaking, 3.0.55-7 and later versions seem to have fixed the issue. The files which used to word-wrap well, and had stopped word-wrapping, now are again word-wrapping correctly.

The bad news: I ran into a few old files that still present the issue. On trying to figure what they had different from the new ones, the only think I could come up with is that they seem to be old-style Mac text files -- that is, ones that use only CR for new line, instead of CR/LF (as in DOS/Windows) or just LF (as in Linux/Unix/OS X)

The worse news: I tried to *make* a file that would present this problem (I have a text editor which is able to save in any newline format) and I couldn't. I even checked with a binary editor to see if the file was saved as a CR-only text file, and it was -- but CoolReader still displayed it correctly. So it's something more subtle than just the newline format, and I couldn't determine what it is. I'll try sending you one of the troublesome files via e-mail, but I'll have to zip it to avoid some overzealous mailserver "fixing" the newline format...

With old-style MacOS being a ten-year-old relic, new CR-only files are unlikely to come up, and it's easy enough to convert the old files to CR/LF (open in a text editor and save it again), so I don't expect this to be a high-priority bug... but still, it might be worth looking into it.

I have some documents in rtf format that have some ASCII-style "images" in them. CR on my Samsung Charge automatically deletes extra spaces and double-space type carriage returns. Is there a way to prevent CR from doing this and leaving the spaces and returns alone? Or, alternatively, is there a character (an "invisible" one) that could be inserted into the rtf document under Windoze that would force CR to display it correctly?
Thanks,
Rocky

Example: Golf ball trajectory due to Magnus effect:

o
o o
o o
o o
o______________________________________o___

Edit: Hahaha, the forum program deleted the extra spaces too!

............................................o
.............................o .....................o
...................o.............................. .......o

A &nbsp; (non-breaking space) can be used for this purpose. The <pre> tag can be sued to force monospacing characters and leaving in all spaces.

Thanks, Dale. That worked perfectly! (Alt+255 did the trick!)

Thanks for the MIPS fix, For $110 USD, the Novo7 Paladin makes a nice little traveler and now that it runs CoolReader, I'm ready to go. When I say little I mean;

Will support for MIPS be included in general distribution or is that a one time special?

I've been looking for a reader that would satisfy my needs. I'm happy I've found Cool Reader it's really cool! It let's me to display Georgian Unicode just perfectly (without need for @face statements in epub) and also it reads & displays metadata like title and author in title bar. Great! I have just a remark. I'm new to CR and excuse me if the feature I'm gonna ask for is already implemented.

1. When I make Bookmarks in Georgian Unicode epub, bookmarks are displayed as ?????.

2. Before I open any book there's Internal file browser, when I go to books list Georgian titles are displayed as ?????


If I'd be able to to fix ????? issue in those two places I'd grateful and 100% satisfied with CR.

One more minor thing. In an Internal file browser a book cover page is displayed full screen in FB2 format books, but in Epub it's only on quarter of the screen.

I'm using latest version of CR.

I'm using CoolReader on Archos 10.1IT (Android 2.1). The tablet is connected to the LAN.

When reading a book I stop CoolReader. Sometime later the WiFi goes down (due to external circumstances). When I (re)start CoolReader, it freezes with an empty, totally non-responsive screen and must be externally FCed. Only after the WiFi has been restored, it is possible to start CoolReader again.
The book currently being read resides on the sdcard, though.

Any idea what's going on?

I've noticed this on Coolreader myself, but it does not seem to relate to wifi or other external circumstances as much as where you are in Coolreader itself when you exit out.

If you are inside a book and close back to the home screen, you will be fine. If you "back" out to a menu listing from your current book and then close out to the home screen it sometimes confuses Coolreader and you end up loading a black screen.

So far I have been able to back in and out a couple of times and it will eventually come back to a workable menu. It has not completely locked up to the point of total non responsiveness.

Sounds interesting. Unfortunately I cannot test it out, since the CR version I have currently installed disables the soft buttons and there's no way to get into the other menus.
