By the way, you can convert these sqlite databases to svg files using https://github.com/peter-x/boox-annotation-export

That's nice to the respect that it seems that we don't have to touch the closed source reader to change scribble functionality, if I get things correctly... speaking of which... your Scribble project - do you intend to replace the scribble application or the scribble widget? (I didn't fully get your motivation and goal there)

Can the native scribble application be configured to draw lines or squares in pDFs? That should be an easy but very useful change

Sony 13.3

Thanks all for this huge information. My requirements are for pdf, both academic and documentation), highlighting, notes. I am convinced 9" is a minimum for this use case and I cannot decide between Boox M92 and PB912. Both have pros and cons. PB multitasking is important for me as a good multi-column management. M92 is far more responsive and have a better rendering. All have wifi. I am convinced this is completely useless on a e-ink reader which will be too slow for still a long time.

In the past, I had a Sony PRS950, but the screen is broken (some one walked on my bag - not a default from the device). Globaly I was satisfied, but the software was still not mature enough in terms of usability.

I think I am going to wait a few months for the Sony 13.3 Inch.

I hope the price won't be too big.....

Hi,
The multitasking is present in the M92 with the new patch proposed by Booxtor.

How many is "a few"?
I don't think that you are going to see that soon

multiclumn PDF-Functionality is already present in the latest M92 Firmware 1.8.20130717 as well.

choose the sutitable Zoomlevel for columns like 200%,300%, 400% then choose PaperMode to navigate correctly thru the columns (Top-Bottom,Top-Bottom with the page turn button) and you can combine it with the auto-crop-function in the page-settings.

by the way the Paper-Mode navigates correctly thru multi-colums, which means vertical navigation, the same style of navigation but horizontal provides the Comic-Mode therefore one can navigate correctly thru PDF-Comics.

Booxtor showed it with the regular multi-column mode in comparison to the multicolumn-Mode combined with Auto-Crop.

Now that's pure awesome news about adding the multi-column support! Onyx is one of the best companies when it comes to post-release support of their products. To be honest, I didn't expect new firmware with such important and powerful new features added one and a half year after the reader hit the market. It was good choice to buy M92 :-)

Fonts in multi-column PDFs where often just to small to read comfortably and complex page layouts where not easily handled in zoom mode. I used cut2col tool to extract columns to separate pages, but with some more complex eBooks containing tables and images spanning across multiple columns it was just too much work to cut a few hundreds of pages analysing layout page-by-page.

I own a Polish edition of the reader, so I'll have to wait a few weeks until Arta Tech prepares the binaries for it, but I'm already hooked.

Thanks for this good news Dolansky. But it is not so demonstrative. With the same 3 columns document, I would like to see a complete page read from the first column top to the last column bottom, one single column at a time in portrait mode and then in landscape mode, the column (only one) occupying all the width of the screen.

I want to read comfortably and ergonomically. Having to prepare a document with external tools before reading it is a strong showstopper for me.

Cherry on the cake : one button to switch from whole page mode to multicolumn-auto-crop-auto-zoom-to-one-column-full-width mode

Actually, that will make my buying decision. Without this, in my opinion, a reader is useless.

you don't need external programs to prepare.

The combination of PDF-Mode's with zoom and margin-cut-functions is the most flexible, i know for professional reading on Pearl-e-ink device.

e.g. to read 3 columns you can combine : {Paper-Mode, 300%Zoom, automatic magin-cut} but you are free to choose, instead of 300% Zoom you could use the stylus to draw a Zoom-Rectangle the column-PDF-area to zoom in. The Paper-Mode navigate correctly thru columns with the Page-Turn Button.

Do you know if anybody made the game of Go?
Is it possible to play games online that are made in Java?
I am primly interested at Boox M92.

A slight variation on this helped: if you select the tool indicator at the top of the screen an empty settings screens pops up at the bottom of the screen. I filled in all the fields (took quite some typing due to a rather long SSID) and selected the proper settings for authentication. And guess what: it is working fine now.

So probably only the very first time a wireless network is selected the SSID and other settings are filled in automatically (except for the password). If you want to change the settings afterwards you apparantly must select that network, press the toolindicator at the top of the screen and fill out all fields (SSID, Authentication etc) manually.
Stupid question - why doesn't M92 have a way to enter manual IP network setting for the wi-fi connectivity? Why is it relying necessarily on the presence of a DHCP server? I have disabled the DHCP on purpose on my router, and all my home networking is using static IP addressing.

Thank you.
