And related to the above, if comic mode is disabled the grey area at the bottom of the page causes very unpleasant refreshing artifacts when changing page. Just a line that indicates the bottom border of the page, as in the default pdf reader, would be preferable imho.

@memeplex

1. Pan-Fw_Press-Pan - Definitely a bug. Thanks for reporting.

2. Backward overlap shading - Discussion and fix for this can be found in previous posts (as you already noticed)

3. Gray background - You can set background colour to white editing defaults.lua file.

Regards,
Kai

Thank you for your prompt answer Kai. Please read my update about the bug. I'm reporting it in kpv github also.

Here is a fix to make turn page up and down more consistent when panning with zoom to content width and page mode disabled. Say you pan right. Then you click > till the bottom of the page is reached and a page turn happens: the new page is again zoomed to content, which is just fine. But now do the same and click < instead, till the top of the page is reached and the previous one is shown: not only zoom is still manual but the viewport is at the top of the new page (instead of bottom). This behavior is utterly inconsistent with the previous one. It can be fixed changing:
Quote:
elseif self.globalzoom_mode == self.ZOOM_FIT_TO_CONTENT_WIDTH_PAN
by
Quote:
elseif self.globalzoom_mode == self.ZOOM_FIT_TO_CONTENT_WIDTH_PAN or
self.last_globalzoom_mode == self.ZOOM_FIT_TO_CONTENT_WIDTH_PAN
in UniReader:setzoom. In fact I think the entire condition could be replaced by self.content_top == -2012.

Bug (and dirty fix): kbscreen x 2 not forcing refresh in K4NT

I'd to change fb.bb:invertRect(0, 0, 1, 1) to fb.bb:invertRect(0, 0, 3, 3) to get it working. Really don't know why. I've not tested this in K3 yet. Maybe it works out of the box there.

I tried to install on a brand new Kindle 4NT (firmware 4.1.1) but Kite does not install with an error.

Being a real beginner could you please suggest a solution ?

Did not jailbreak it before ... Should I ?

I see the jailbreak is for firmware up to 4.1.0

You need to jailbreak, yes. It's mentioned in the OP. The OP also has all the links to the relevant threads for the install steps.

However, I suggest to use KUAL instead of Kite - but this is probably personal preference, I just consider KUAL a cleaner approach.

I'm not sure about it (I don't own a K4). Maybe you need to downgrade. It will show when you try to jailbreak - if it doesn't work, you would need to downgrade the firmware before jailbreaking.

Yes.
At least I am pretty sure of that.
Here is what to expect:

First of all, thank you for this application, it's like a day and night difference for manga/comic reading compared to the built-in picture viewer.

I'd like to know if there's currently any way to automatically rotate the picture to landscape orientation if the picture width is larger than its height.

I'm sorry to say that there isn't a way to automatically rotate the picture if the picture width is larger than its height. On K3, rotation 90 degrees and back is only one key (j or k, depending what direction you want), so I never needed it to do it automatically.

Although it's not as easy as on K3, on K4 you can use ScreenKB - Menu to go directly to Zoom & Rotate menu. And since menues remember last option used, it shouldn't be all that troublesome to use on K4 too, although admitedly not as comfortable as on K3.

Modifying the code to do it automatically also shouldn't be all that difficult, but I don't have much time these days. If you can't do it yourself, maybe some of the other readers can help you.


Regards,
Kai

That type of PDF does not have "hard" page breaks (which is one of the reasons it can be "reflowed").

So that continuation line is by design.
Change any of the metrics of the display and the "soft" page break position will change in the document.

- - - -

In answer to your question - it would require code changes to change that - there isn't a "continuation length" option.
