PlugIn Recommendations

I'm looking for recommendations on plugins for the Calibre reader. One that let's me highlight text and the other to convert text to speech if one exists. Thanks

@docmartn - the calibre viewer you see today is at end-of-life, maybe the new one will support persistent highlights. One problem is that there are no de-jure standards for such things, and getting the major players to formulate de-facto conventions probably won't happen whilst we remain on the 'let's monetise everything' merry-go-round.

Re Text to speech - I use Balabolka, I integrate it into calibre via it's Open With feature see ==>> http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...96&postcount=9 - no plugin needed.

Hope that helps a bit at least

Open With is a plugin... Unless I missed it being replaced by a core feature of the same name.

Open with is a feature in Calibre. There's no need for the plug-in.

So it is. I did find it, but I had to grep the source code to do it. Pity I didn't follow BR's link first off.

FYI for others:

It appears that the core feature version of 'Open with...' is only available:

a) By right-clicking the format link in Book Details--which also means it's invisible and inaccessible if you don't have 'Formats' checked in Preferences > Look & Feel > Book Details, or;

b) From the 'View Specific Format' (alt-v by default) action, under the View action.

That's what I always use - I even gave it the 'V' key - palm frontwards of course

I always read the release notes before downloading a release - that's where I first found it. It's a jolly good feature because it hooks up with the OS Open With - on Windows at least.
