just a couple noob questions

Using calibre's internal ebook view, is it possible to add personal notes to a selection like some other ereaders can?
Also, in the latest update I seen something mentioned in the "whats new" about an animated page turn but it looks no different than before. how do I turn this on?
Thanks

In the Viewer
Preferences (may be off the bottom. See the double arrow?) Page flip duration: a Non-zero value

No annotatoins

yes I saw the page flip duration thing, but I had the impression this latest update had one of those cool page turn animations.
No annotations, thats a bummer
hope the devs will add that someday
Thanks

What you saw was a page that was highlighting all of calibre's features as they differ from 0.7.0. The page actually says this toward the bottom.
Quote:
Note that many of these features were actually introduced during the lifetime of the 0.7.x series. This document describes new features as compared to 0.7.0
The actual Page turn animation came out last December.

Quote:
Release: 0.7.34 [17 Dec, 2010]

New Features

  • Page turn animations in the e-book viewer "Now when you use the Page Down/Page Up keys or the next/previous page buttons in the viewer, page turning will be animated. The duration of the animation can be controlled in the viewer preferences. Setting it to 0 disables the animation completely."
Have a great day!

Red face page turn animation

Yes, now we have a page flip animation (the page slowly slides out in the left hand side of the window.) But I guess, the original question was to have a page turn animation like this:



or this:



Of course double page is much more fancy, but it is not important, to make animation filled with the next page's characters. A simple white page can do...

I dont have any desire to code a turn animation, but patches are most welcome

Why waste battery power (life)? All that unnecessary (the content is necessary ) animation takes lots of processor power that eats run time.

Wow! You must be living green if the PC you run calibre's viewer on is running off a battery. It must be nice living off of the grid.

Python is not my world. Does that mean that a good feature is lost, or can it become a feature request ticket for the developer community?

I do not keep tickets open that no one has shown any interest in implementing, they just become zombie tickets. So unless you want to implement it yourself or concinve someone else to do the same, don't bother opening a ticket.
