The pdf reader seems to have a problem with highlighting done on the desktop using the yellow colour. You can hardly see that when you move the document back to the ereader.
Not sure what can be done with this. Probably just adding some contour to the highlighted text will solve the issue (showing that the text was selected)

It basically has three parts:
Part one - just show you how the pages do look like in "Fit To Page" zoom level.
Part two - Reading in "Two Column" mode without "Auto Crop".
Part Three- How "Auto Crop" affect the size and moving behaviour of the viewport

So "auto crop" in page settings is not what I wanted. Would you please explain then, how I achieve the behaviour of the old "crop margins" setting?

Where did you get that nice cover from? The leather one I got with mine only has two straps holding the Boox in place - is the one you have for sale on the shop somewhere?

I would also like to know this. (Btw, the only way in which I managed to simulate it is by zooming as much as possible while appropriately displacing the document to put it in the centre of the screen, and then changing pages with the stylus using the bottom bar. This is fine, though not ideal, with short documents but not for long books.)

I don't need multi-column support, but I do need a good crop margin support. Fortunately there is still the old pdf reader, so I'm switching back to it.

Besides, the new pdf reader seems very inconsistent with the djvu reader (and epub readers) which still behave "the old way".

Hi guys, don't be upset. The Auto Crop will definitely become a tool, that you expect to be like. It is already working on most documents properly. Give us just a couple of days.

Any chance to improve the speed for highlighting ?
When I use the scribbling tool that is very fast.
For highlighting there is lag of about 1-1.5 sec between the move of the pen and the moment when the highlighting is complete. That breaks the fluidity of your reading process especially if you highlight a lot.


Certainly this has something to do with the way it was programmed and with the refresh speed of the screen. While the first factor can be improved the second one can't be changed.

I am not sure how complicate is this but one good solution would be to use underlining instead of highlighting. I don;t think that anybody would be bothered by this.

i confirm the delay of highlight Text in the new PDF Reader, the old PDF Reader ist faster for text-highlighting but the old one got the annoying automatic pop up window to enter comments, which the new pdf reader didnt have - only if i explicit touch the highlighted Text, which is defenitively a better solution.
and the feature to add underline text would be a nice addition for the notice-tools, to have both, underline text and highlight text, as well as strike out text like the android relipgo reader has.
to strike out text is as well an usefull learning-technique to actively strike out the unimportant parts of an paragraph, hence to visualize the remaining important parts to learn.

Thank you for the new firmware. Many features are improved and I have some humble suggestions for the new update of the firmware.

- would be possible to name bookmarks with custom names instead of the current part of first line of the page as default? It will be much easier to look for the proper bookmark if there are many.

- in the new pdf reader for annotation there are choices of 5 thicknesses of lines, but in fact it always reverts to the middle one (shape 3). The old pdf reader works well with it, so using it for now.

- will it be possible to somehow update the clock? Sometimes I work on the same page for a while and the displayed time is misleading, since it is not changing until the new refresh. I had seen that the nook refreshes just the part of the screen where the clock is and not the whole one so that should not take too much of power.

Thank you,

Actually I find text highlight faster in the new reader. As for the Auto crop function, which replaced the Hide margins option, you can work around it by using Two-point zoom.

Two point crop in the page setup menu doesn't work for me well: it crops more than I indicate. (The two point zoom in the zoom menu works, but it's useless for cropping margins.) Anyway, the old pdf reader is there and works just fine
