That sounds very drastic. Other readers (bookeen, pocketbook) I've seen allow access to system files. Then it's the user's responsability, as with any computer.

Is there no way to disclose this partition when the Firefly is connected to my pc?

I would also like that to be possible.

I don't know what you mean. But pocketbook for sure doesn't allow access to system files. What are you trying to achieve?

On mac os x, if you reveal hidden files, you can see the system files of pocketbook, add dictionaries, fonts, etc…

I see, dictionaries and fonts are not system files. Can't you add fonts to the "fonts" directory in the internal storage and dictionaries in the "dicts" directory on firefly?

Yes you can (sounds familiar) but we can't access the system fonts or the pre-installed dictionary for example (if only to remove it) or any other elements one might wish to view. It's just strange not to be able to access things freely in an open system.

You can access it form PC using terminal and several other ways.

And you can access it from device using OTFM. What is the problem?

I guess it's just that I don't know how to do it and that it seems like it would be much easier if it just showed up in the finder. It's not really that big a deal actually. It is much more important to improve the GUI which is very awkward for the moment and as was mentioned previously, not originally meant for this device.
That being said, I think the device feels really nice and has great potential. I'm just hoping and excited to see it happen !

Hi,

Is it possible to take notes, highlight or sketch with epubs in fbreader ? If no, why not ?

Thank you.

Exactly the same situation is with pocketbook you have mentioned as allowing access to system files. Onyx is more open than pocketbook since all applications run with root privileges. But pocketbook's soft more flexible (in area of user customization) and consistent. Do we looking for access to the system files or we just need more convenient soft allowing performing necessary customizations? And finally, I don't find it is strange. In open system you may access things freely if you know how.

Ok. I guess my frustration comes mostly from my incompetence and lack of knowledge.
I think you're right when you say that what we need is a more convenient and consistent soft allowing customizations and, I would add, one that is really adapted to the device.
