I want to share some hacks (most of them came from other discussion), some people may like it and use it before they are officially adopted.


Quote:

edit unireader.lua under kindlepdfviewer directory

1. force global refresh
rcount = 5,
rcountmax = 5,
change 5 --> 0

2. make pdf margin white instead of grey

fb.bbaintRect(0, 0, width, height, 8)
8 --> 0

3. Make the bookmarked dialog disappear quicker

showInfoMsgWithDelay("Page marked.", 2000, 1)
showInfoMsgWithDelay("Page already marked!", 2000, 1)

2000 --> 500


edit crereader.lua

4. change epub/mobi default font

default_font = "Droid Sans",

Droid Sans --> any font you like, input name as it showed in book font selection screen(it's different from the file browser font selection screen)

Is there any way to change the margins for the Shift+S (zoom to fit content width) option? I love the accessibility it provides with small-text PDFs, but the words are literally touching the ends of the screen in this mode, which is disconcerting to read. I would like to increase the margin by a very small amount. Where can I edit the settings for this?

Hm, that's in the more convoluted parts of the code. But the request has been made before, so I'll have a look.

I didn't think it was possible to write convoluted Lua code.
But I suppose if you really work at it...

Thankfully, only OTHER people's code is convoluted! That is why there is so much NIH code.

That will be great!
Should it be a global setting, or a per file setting?
And there could be need for 4 margin values in 4 directions...

Not so sure about this. I'm currently a bit buried in "real life work", so I'm still postponing the next release of the old/"classic" code base. I think the same goes for others of the developers, so things are going a bit slowly for the moment. Luckily, it's quite usable as it is.

I think network access should be simple, probably it's just a LIPC command that needs to be sent. However, I only have Wifi on my K3, so I cannot test 3g. Plus, 3G doesn't necessarily enable full internet access and I certainly won't include any means for circumventing this restriction in kindlepdfviewer.

:-) No, eventually, we will get there. But the Touch is yet another beast, requiring a careful implementation of touch gestures. This will be certainly interesting, but of course more developers are very welcome to go on and try.

I correct this misunderstanding.
Sorry my insufficient english language.
I use google translate and web dictionary.
The purpose of my comment is that yours project is very important work for Kindle Touch users.
Sorry again for misunderstanding, my english language is poor insufficient, but my excitement for this app very strong

My apologies.
I did not realize I was writing to Google Translate.
