Mike has used jharker's latest modded ipdf & added his bookmarks feature.

Maybe it's time for a little diff session.

The powersaving of ipdf should be [maybe] obsolete because of the new 2.11 feature "Generic CPU frequency scaling".

Thanks a lot for your effort. I have experienced the convenience of the function of bookmarks and the rest. Here is one problem. The bookmarks cannot work in the mode of landscape. I think using the mode of landscape in order to see small font document more clearly is quite important. Could you please fix the problem? Thank you very much.

Now, I added some edition possibility for bookmark. You can set name for each bookmark by pressing bookmark icon in bookmark dialog (the same icon which is using for adding bookmark). And second addition - you can add more than 12 bookmark. Bookmarks are being displayed in several pages.

I also know about some bugs. I cannot get normal control on keyboard, I need to clean code and may be, improve some solutions. I also plan to add possibility for comments.

By the way, everybody, who will try this new ipdf, please, bakup all your manifest files. I cannot give any warranty that addition works properly.

P.S: Can anybody test powersaving of "all in one ipdf" in comparing with ipdf 2.11?

I think I may be dense... I am in need of help. Here is what I did:

I downloaded this version:

ipdf_powersave_bookmarks_for_2.11

Once I unzipped everything, I just copied it over to the ipdf directory on my CF card on my Iliad.

Well the full screen works, etc....but I don't see any icon for bookmarks, etc.

Can someone help direct me as to what I am doing wrong.

Thanks!

The modified ipdf needs to be copied to your iliad file system. I created a little set of installers of the various versions to make it easier to switch and get the features I need at a particular point in time. You can get them here. Just unzip this to somewhere, e.g. your CF, and then navigate to the folder (on your iliad). You will see four installers in the contentlister, one of which restores the original iRex ipdf. You can only have one current version, so it shows the date and time of that each version was copied across so you can figure out which is the current version.

Well I am making progress!

Now I can see the bookmarks and it works great.

But after I installed that version, I cannot get the pdf out of full screen mode.

If I press the escape button it brings me back to the directory menu.

Any ideas for this one?

thanks!

Try here. The first post here has a summary of the features of fullscreen mode with the key commands.

This thread has gotten a little confusing. I'm not sure which version I'm supposed to download. Would it be possible to update the first post or add these changes to jharkers original post here and on the iRex forum.

Thanks,
Phil

Use the installer in this post: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...1&postcount=16

I'll update the first post of this thread to reflect that.

Ok well the bricking I have been experiancing has to do with the addons I have been trying to use.

Since I restored everything, there have been no issues.

So I have firmware 2.11.

What I want to add is fullscreen pdf's and pdf bookmarks. Can someone point me to the version that works fine with 2.11.

I just want to make sure I get the correct one.

Thanks!

Tested and working on 2.11
doesn't work on 2.12

why do the pen settings seem to default to "magic marker" mode every time i reboot the iliad? it'd be nicer if it could remember the setting either per manifest.xml file or just based on the last settings.. it doesn't seem to remember it for specific files, anyway.

For the 'marking mode': Can the 'biggest' size marker be made bigger, btw? (so that it more or less encompasses a whole line of text in height?

create manifest-bookmarks from pdf-bookmarks

"But we could use maybe iText [a Java.pdf library] or something different to generate a manifest.xml with all bookmarks of pdf file."
- That's a great idea! I would like that very very much.
(Also nice would be an integration of this bookmarking function with the column mode function, because both features are very useful.)

Hi all,

I've just installed this version with the all-in-one iPDF installer, and I've got a question: now all of my pdfs are displayed directly in full screen, which is wonderful, but I can't access the toolbar to use the bookmark functionality, or all of the others...how can I toggle between fullscreen and normal view?

EDIT: I've found out with post 36, thanks ^^
