I would if I could. My, and many other tablets don't have access to the "market". Do you, or anyone, have any idea where else I could get this utility?

CoolReader requires additional permissions specified in package manifest.
WAKE_LOCK - to extend backlight timeout
WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE - to access SD card
Thanks for the info about the permissions provision. I didn't know that existed but it sounds like a good idea. As an aside, the Cruz uses "Astro" as its file manager/installer.

Thanks and regards - John

P.S. Congratulations! It sounds like you are in the home stretch of a blockbuster product.

Personally, if I exit while inside a book I would like it to open with a return to the book where I left off. If I back out of the book and exit from inside the file listing I would like it to return to the file listing on open.
Just always returning to the last book accessed was sometimes a pain.

Maybe I should ask if there is a proper way to actually close a book. It looks as if the reader always is in a state of "book is open".

Hi! I have just started using Cool Reader (after a tip from Dopedangel), and I really like it. But there is one problem: I use it to read proof on my work (I'm a movie/television subtitler), and some of the lines are Italics. For instance when somebody's speaking through the phone or there's a voice over (think "Mike Hammer": "I knew there was something wrong with the chick, but with legs like that...") It seems that Italics are converted into standard non-italics in the reader.

Until now I have been using the Nook Color's internal reader, and that does not change the italics. But it does not support the new font I have found either. This weekend I started using a TTF font called DPCustomMono2 when I discovered that it actually makes it easier to spot mistakes because it's harder to read. I don't know the psychology behind it, but a recent study has found that proof reading with normal fonts on an eReader is too light on the eyes, which makes it easier for errors to sneek by.

I know it's not because of the TTF I'm using, because with Trebuchet (which is built in and gives me italics in the built-in Barnes & Noble reader) I still don't get italics in Cool Reader.

So if it was possible to leave italics untouched the Cool Reader would be perfect for me! Any chance of that? Or is that perhaps already possible with some setting I haven't found yet? Thanks in advance! (Yeah, I'm an optimistic bugger...)

There are two possible reasons of missing italics:
1) Bug in CSS processing -- fixed in cr3.0.41-3 build I've uploaded today
2) Missing italic file for font (e.g. missing trebucit.ttf) -- can be fixed by putting additional font files to SD card (e.g. to SD/fonts)

Thanks a lot for answering so fast! I tried to start by downloading the new version, but suddenly the letters are so small I can't read. And choosing 60 point doesn't help either. I tried to reboot, but that didn't help. Has a error in some of the font handling possibly crept in? Sorry if the question is dumb, I couldn't code myself out of a brown paper bag!

If you would be so kind, the font I use is here:

Today's CoolReader 3 download from The Market works OK on my HTC Desire.

OK, thanks for checking. Weird stuff, since Word can show italics in that font without any problems. Is that becuse there are differences between how Android draws fonts and how Windows does it? I know naathing about this. (Think Manuel in "Fawlty Towers").

I am no font expert either, but from just what you are saying it is apparently possible for a word processor to italicize a font that has no italic set installed.

Understood. Then I'll have to solve this in another way. But I still have the problem with very small letters, also with other fonts, with this new version. I have not changed anything in the menus, I only upgraded.

It now seems to read the CSS in my books. Yay, now I don't have to use Aldiko. This is great.

Reading the css within an epub is a very welcome addition. A few issues:

1. It does not appear to support bold as a css class.
2. Likewise, when I use css to define the indent to 0, it still puts an indent in there.
3. Does Cool Reader support lines (<hr />) and boxes? If not, any plans to?

Cheers, Carl.

It should support all features described above. If not, it's a bug.
Could you send me example with wrong formatting?

It's necessary to implement italicise transform feature for CoolReader font engine in order to allow showing italics w/o italic font file.
It would take several days, so this feature is postponed.
