Yes it would be very useful given the difficulty of tracking long straight lines in dense text documents in full page mode

Any help? Thanks.
This often happens to me unfortunately!
I hope it can be fixed.


@Booxtor:

Thanks for adding the icon for selection of links in the "annotation bar" and also for other improvements .. it works well! Remains the problem of which I spoke in my previous post about the impossibility of changing the page (backward and forward) with the appropriate buttons when "annotation bar" and "sketch" function is activated. Although some documents seems to work in other under these conditions there is only a refresh of the same page with the disappearance of the previous sketch. Do I have temporarily to select another function on "annotations bar" in order to change the page and next switch to the "sketch" function again.

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?
I have the resume from suspend issue as well with the last firmware, which is why I went back to the previous one. Bad autocrop is the lesser evil for me.

Hi, I have noticed another bug with the pdf reflow in the new PDF reader. When I am reading a page in reflow the turn page button doesn't work every third or so click. Typically, this occurs when clicking the button just before you arrive at the end of the page (because in reflow mode at the maximum font size a single page of the PDF can take several page turns on the reader to read completely).

However, if you open a PDF and just rapidly click through the pages in reflow mode this does not happen. It only happens if you are actually reading the page so there seems to be some kind of delay needed before clicking the button. It is really quite annoying because the page refreshes like it has changed but it is actually still on the same spot! If I click the button again then the page will turn as it should.

I have this problem with the turn page buttons on both sides of the device and even when I try to turn the page by touching the screen. So I guess it is not a hardware problem. I have tested it on a variety of PDF files. Most of the time it only occurs when I click to view the last part of the current page on the PDF (usually this works out to be every third click). This is only happening on the PDF reader and page turns work perfect on .mobi files.

Has anyone else experienced this?

I also mentioned earlier that annotations made in PDF reflow mode do not show up when I create a new PDF document using the merge command. Has anyone else duplicated this bug as well?

Oh, and does anyone know how to roll back the i62HD to 1.7? Can this be done by simply installing the 1.7 update on a machine running 1.8? I found that the reflow and the annotations on the beta PDF reader were more stable than on the 1.8.

Ha ha ha, sorry for all the questions.

I hope it is okay that I posted in the M92 forum because I believe that the new PDF reader on the i62HD is the same software as the PDF reader on the M92. Sorry if the above post was in the wrong place.

Firmware 1.8.1 20121113

Bug:
1. when the "Go to page" dialog is invoked and then canceled, the screen isn't refreshed when the dialog disappears

Suggestions:
1. bar tools for the file manager: when in file view the status bar should display file tools (copy, cut, paste ...)
2. page progress bar with page numbers: make the progress bar for pages in the status bar like the one in DR1000's last firmware. Since a picture is worth a thousand words see the attached picture
3. bar tools for the left and right half of the status bar separately: select what you want to be displayed in the left and right half of the status bar separately e.g. general tools left and progression bar right or annotation tools left and zooming tools right
4. global settings for reading: default settings for each file type which can be overridden on a per file basis
5. copy/paste files: when moving files around the .onyx files should follow them
6. scheme for reading options: +1 for ManDay's suggestion link

And a suggestion for the moderators: I think the threads would be more "clean" if there was one sticky for suggestions, one for bugs and one for Booxtor where he would explain issues about the current firmware


P.S. A big thanks to Booxtor for his excellent service

A forum thread in general is a very bad way to handle bugs & suggestions.

Have a look at these two bug tracking systems:
http://bugs.pwmt.org/
https://bugs.archlinux.org/

Maybe Onyx or Booxtor could host something like that as well? Would be a lot easier to track and moderate.

Look at this tool: http://flyspray.org/doku.php

Seems to be pretty straight forward to set up.


EDIT: For that matter, one could just as well use the Github issue tracker. For that one doesn't even need to set up anything. Does anyone follow issues regarding general firmware issues there?

+1, this is a good idea. Although we already have the wiki-wishlist, it is rather "hidden". Even if a real bugtracker cannot be established for some reason, creating stickies for bugs and feature requests would improve the structure of this subforum a lot.

The relevance of this proposal is underlined by the fact that during the course of the last two weeks, a lot of questions and suggestions have been popping up outside of this thread.

same firmware as above

Bug:
select 'glyph embolden' and any level except 0 -> select annotations tools and do a sketch -> you won't be able to turn pages

Suggestion:
selecting 'autocrop' levels: instead of displaying a dialog box in which the crop level must be entered, display the current page with a 'frame' (dashed lines like the viewport) displaying where the margins will be cropped; change crop levels with the joystick up-down and confirm with joystick press

I agree that a bug tracking system is much better, but this issue has come up again and there were no reactions. So I thought that that we might adopt the second best solution.

I can confirm this... I have the same issue.

----------------------

Hello everybody!

This is my little bugs list:

Firmware version 1.8.1 20121113

Bug n.1:
If you jump to links on the document with relative icon (thanks for adding it) with "Annotation Icons bar" enabled and then return to the previous page with menu\reading\previous view (just unconfortable action! Why not an handy icon on the bar or joystick customizable option for this function?), bar automatically change to "General Icons bar" so you have to reselect "Annotation Icons bar" from menu if you wish to continue your sketch.. this is stressful!!!

Bug n.2:
with "Annotation Icons bar" enabled if you accidentally use the highlight even on a very small part of the document does not contain characters, the document is closed immediately and without prompting and not saving any of the previous highlights and scribbles ... it is painful!

Booxtor, if you can do something... I will never stop thanking you and developers team too.

Hello girls,

here are the problems/bugs i have discovered (v.1.8.1 20121113):

PDF-reader (new version):

Often crop-margin doesn't do the job, because many PDFs have a layout around the text or head or foot signatures. No problem. And therefore using the manual zoom becomes necessary.

But there's a bug:

If selection zoom or two point zoom is applied, the software always jumps into PAPER MODE. It's not possible to activate PAGE MODE. Jumping into paper mode means when switching to the next page, the previous centered area of the page is lost and the zoomed view begins in the left upper corner, instead of keeping the visible region static on the page.

But as a bad workaround scrolling mode can be activated.
But then comes the second bug/problem into play i have recognized:

In scrolling mode, the very convenient dotted lines showing the last border of the screen are not displayed.


And finally a wish:
Isn't it possible to make the tools-menu user definable?
The "go to last view" <- function is really great for quickly zooming in into graphs and jumping back, but it's awful, that it's not available in the toolbox. IMO it is the most important function when reading PDFs: quickly jump back to what you have seen prior.

I concur with the bug. It makes necessary continuous use of zoom controls on the device. And the icons bar keeps changing to the standard icons. Very annoying.

So do I. I already reported this wrt first version of 1.8 firmware. This behaviour is particularly annoying when reading some academic papers

Temporal workaround until this gets fixed: just switch to old reader .
