I do not know about the new one, but I expect it is the same as old one...

Hand tool makes it possible to move with page within the view port. Put another way. If you see only a part of the page, you may move the view-port (visible part of page) by Hand Tool.

If you see the whole page (or page without margins) the view-port is the same as page and thus Hand Tool has no use.

I really love this new update! I'm deeply impressed by how the new dictionary works: aside from the new features such as the full-screen search and the move up and down of the window, it refreshes less than the previous version, which makes reading more comfortable.

It would be nicer if M92 can customize the multifunctional status bar like choosing favorite tools, but first I wanna say thanks to Booxtor. I really appreciate your time and effort.

Question

Hmm with the new Update 1.7/1.8 20121030 seems to be a new/another Version of the FBReader included....because

- I got no Pagenumber-Bar at the Bottom
- I could see the Cover-pictures anymore

Are there any setting possbile? I didnt find them :-(

In the new PDF-Reader are so many Icons in the Bottom-Bar, but I want my FBReader for reading with my favorite font (Consolas and Ubuntu Mono)

I am somewhat lost in the options of the pdf reader in the newest update. The "auto crop" option works fine, though for some reason it removes the left margin (in place of making left and right margins equally wide). But if I set a custom zoom (via the 2 point zoom), is there any way how to move to the next page and display the same part of that page? The "next" button moves me along the page, showing me the margin. I was trying to set the "page mode" option, but it stays on the "paper mode". What is it supposed to do? Can it be set?

Perhaps it should be specified what "fixed" means. I expected that old scribbles can be merged, not that the same pdf file can be annotated anew and then merged.

There's some sort of display issue. Icons and progress bar sometimes get misaligned in such a way that icons get displayed over progress bar, not to the side of it. Next time I spot this I make a photo.

It turned out they actually work within browser (they are visible when "show bookmarks" option is selected) but they are not displayed in webbrowsing "main screen" - no matter what I do, I can only see google, onyx and wikipedia, not my bookmarks. But it also turns out I can't save passwords (this is perhaps language/translation issue?)

The zip file update-20121030.zip is password protected. How should I do to update my M92?

Edit: Never mind. I just realized you should put the update zip file as it is on the SD card, press and hold the joystick button while you start the device.

@Booxstor, Janek

First, thanks for new firmware. Many of my dreams became the truth.

I tested it just for an hour, so this is my very instant preview......

I can confirm Janek's issue with old scribles. Or general problem with displaying it, I didn't try to export scribles.

And I also encoutered a bug, when it was not possible to turn the pages using < > buttons. It was possible to turn pages by statusbar slider.

I guess both bugs have the same source, because after setting page mode, etc via menu both problems were gone.

My wild, hopefully qualified, guess is that programmers expect only certain combinations of settings and do not handle consistently not-allowed combinations of settings. Current firmware will not (hopefully) allow user to set not-allowed combinations, but old one allowed it or even the meaning of settings has been changed more or less.

So, if one opens document previously opened by 1.7 firmware and used certain specific settings (I do not know which - I ussually used 2 point page margin selection), then 1.8 firmware might handle it incorrectly.

It would be good handle those "error" states consistently. For example, if stored settings are wrong then use the default (but open the document on correct page, not the 1st one) or something like that...

And do it the same way in all layers of pdf reader, e.g. showing the text and showing the scribles.

In my case after 1st openning of old pdf with many scribles, text was very large (zoomed) and scribles were written over in different "scale", so absolutely displaced.

I was terrified, but after a while of playing with zooms and page settings, things got fine and scribbles are placed correctly. As I said I didn't try export.

The same with not working page turns. After re-setting page settings, everything was OK.

So, this is issue, but only for old documents and it seems it can be easily solved by re-setting page options once. Since then things seem to work as expected. Anyway it would be handy, if it is corrected.

The "issue" seems to be easily solved on user side with not much effort. So, do not panic.

I have a little plea to booxtor:

As you have a (empty) download section on your shop website, could you place the firmware there, too? Your dropbox account link is temporarily disabled because of too much traffic - and I would like to download the new firmware so much!!!
