Good point... I think we can implement it

It sounds like very good solution.

I unintentionaly exited the book by pressing Escape instead of Menu many times, so I like the exit question popup. But if the exit is invoked from menu than no need to ask.

I think the total time consumed by accidently closing a book with an escape button is much less than the total time needed for every confirming

Anyway in my opinion the suggestion of Mono would be an improvement

I like the confirmation after pressing the escape button. Please, keep the confirmation.

Well, it depends...

If you read one long scanned document for several days then 2-3 undesired Escapes (which happens quite easily) may mean a minute of waiting.

If you read many short files, confirming Escape means 2-3 seconds at most.

I guess, someone has asked for that feature. And I like it as I was many times angry at me being so stupid to press quite frequently Escape instead of Menu...

Hi Randy11, does it always select too much or too few unlike the 2-point zoom in the old firmware for you too? I have already complained about that to Booxtor.

Hello Zaytsev,
I don't know if I must choose an area in the margin : left point to the begining of the text, or the the text itself. In the first case I have a blank page, in the other I have a zoom too strong.
I suppose, it's a wrong usage of this function.

I'm waiting the video that Booxtor has talked about the page setting.

Booxtor:

Is there a bug tracker of some sort?

I have reported 2 issues in this thread (the Suspend > Poweroff issue, where the device fails to shutdown properly, and the PDFreader > Resume from Suspend issue, where the reader stops functioning), and I am not sure if you noticed the reports.

I think it would be a lot easier to keep track of issues with that. Maybe I just missed it?

Hi,
I saw your report. The reported issue is quite irregular and not always reproducible. I can confirm the issue, but we are still on it.
All bug reports are collected and most of the bugs will be fixed soon.
Some of the issues are hard to solve because they are caused by third party SDKs (e.g. Adobe SDK)

Can I just mention it is the same in the browser, when accidentally hitting the up buttom instead of Menu, and thus precipitating a close WiFi dialogue and whatever you answer, closing out of the page.

Hence, I put this on the wishlist:
Quote:
Stop WiFi dialogue: When selecting 'No' or clicking the closing X, should stay in browser, and current page (i.e. not jump out to bookmarks page). (Or possibly, hitting Cancel should jump out, but X-close should stay on page.)
Cheers!

Another possible bug could be that when I choose a toolbar, in my case annotation icons, and when come into menu, the toolbar gets automatically reset to general without any endeavor. Is it possible to have it fixed to the choice once it is made until I change it myself? Like mapping of the joystick, once it is set it remains that way for that particular file.

Thank you.

It is for sure in 1st release of 1.8, but I think it started with later (cca post June) 1.7 releases.
Turns out, it ha to do with Metadata Extraction - if you turn it off, it will not keep loading at the start.

This might actually be a bug: if there has not been a change to the storage, metadata of EPUB/PDF files should should be extracted again!
