T68 Lynx and Moon+ Reader Pro

For Moon+ Reader (I am using Pro, which I am beginning to regret purchasing due to preferences frustrations on the T68), can someone please oh please provide either:

1. A listing of all options and sub-options that are normally not visible due to white-on-white?
or
2. A means to change the font/background colors of the options listings?

I think other users have been using Moon+ Reader on a regular android tablet to verify menu options, but the T68 is the only android device I own.

I'm in the same boat as you, the only difference being, I'm frustrated of using it on my M96.

I just don't get it. Too complex settings menus. Not as optimized/fluid as M96's own native version of the Cool Reader. Of no use really, at least on e-ink devices.

I still have to try it on my trusty Acer A500. Might just redeem itself.

I use Moon+ Reader Pro, at least some of the time. I also wish for E-Ink-friendly menus. When I use it, I have it set on the Outdoor theme. That seems to work well on the T68. However, the native Onyx Reader is growing on me. I find myself using it more and more. I've tried the other reading apps that are pre-installed, but I lean more to the Onyx Reader now. In the Onyx Reader, a few settings (like margins) can be hard to find and use, but it works pretty well overall.

The only menu which I find difficult to use is the key mapping menu. All the others have only a few options, and although you can't see the menu, you can see the option once you've selected it. There's no real reason to ever use the menus once you have it configured to your satisfaction, so it doesn't bother me.

Thanks downeaster,

The outdoor theme is a heaven-send, the Moon+ reader seems a lot more pleasing to the eye now.

The first option in the settings is to set page margins. I agree i should be available alongside the settings option & one should not have to delve into settings to change it. Or were you referring to something else?

Hi Harry,

Using the Outdoor theme as suggested by downeaster above seems to have resolved the issue of hard to see menu.

Can you share with us your favorite settings for the Moon+ reader on the M96. Thanks.

No, the menus are still "white on white" even with the "Outdoor" theme (which I do use). But the menus are only in the configuration screens and, at least for me, it's a case of "set it up and then forget it".

I have a T68, not an M96.

what do you use the moon reader for?
how do you manage to tolerate the innnumerable screen flashes?
these distract me so much that i have resigned myself to using the default reader.

Moon+ is the app I do all my reading on on the T68.

What screen flashes? I don't see any flashes.
