M92 Questions

Before buying an M92 I have a couple of questions:

1. I have read the M92 manual and it doesn't seem to talk much about using the stylus. My Kindle Touch can bring up a dictionary definition by simply touching a word. Can the M92 do this by touching a word with the stylus?

2. My Kindle can navigate an Ebook, compiled with an appropriate NCX file, using multi-level chapter paging by swiping the screen up or down. Other than the standard navigation tools, next, previous and table of contents links, what Ebook navigation techniques are currently available on the M92?

Thanks

1. I guess you have to open dictionary first. Then it works like that. It is IMO fully satisfactory. And the firmware evolves so maybe there is even easier way, now. I do not have the latest firmware.

2. I do not know what NCX file is. You have Next/Prev, TOC, GoTo #, page slider, crosslinks, Back to Previous Position, Go To Note #, Go To Mark #,
and possibly some more.

1. double click of stylus on a word works even if dictionary is not activated but not with every file format (pdf and doc readers are not the case).

Thanks Kirith, Mono and Lompy for offering your knowledge which was good enough for me - I bought an M92 today through [Promotional link deleted - MODERATOR] and just made the free shipping deadline. Mono, NCX stands for (Navigation Control for XML) Both mobi/prs and epub support NCX files, providing rapid chapter to chapter and subtile paging.

I just got my M92 in the mail today and have been having fun getting to know the user interface.

I have found the user manual very inadequate. There is no mention of exporting notes/scribbles to files on the SD card, but I have read that this is possible. Also, does anyone know if there is an indicator light for when the battery is done charging? There is a yellow light that appears when it is plugged in, but I have had it charging for about six hours and it hasn't changed color.

UPDATE - I think I found the answer to this on another thread. The yellow light just turns off, but charging time does appear to be quite long.

Also, to issues I have noticed so far:

1. FBReader does not have an option for turning off hyphenation, so ev-
ery other li-
ne is cut off li-
ke this.

On the tablet version, there is a check box in settings that enables you to 'turn off hyphenation.' Does anyone know of a fix for this on the M92?

2. When my device goes to sleep, it doesn't wake up. I quick press the power button and nothing happens. I have to press and hold the power button, power off the device, then reboot.

Any ideas?

Have you installed the last firmware and the patch? The last firmware fixes some bugs, and I think that the sleeping issue was one of them

I am not sure, but it seems to me that default setting is it goes to sleep in few minutes and off few minutes later. Your M92 probably goes off.

I do not have problem to switch between sleep and on. My setting is - never off (automaticaly). If I want off, I do it using the button.

Thanks, I am probably going to do that today. I spent some time yesterday trying to see if the M92 1.8 update posted by Booxter was compatible with my device. I have just the standard M92 on my warranty card, not the "Black Pearl" model, so I assume both the update and the patch are compatible with my device.

ArtaTech chanel devices have cloud capability and IVONA TTS. I expect if it is installed on your M92 it should be mentioned in About screen. Also ArtaTech firmware has different dates of issue than the rest of devices.

Anyway you cannot make any harm trying to install ArtaTech firmware on non-ArtaTech M92 and vice versa. It is not possible to install it for a general user. (Without knowledge of passwords or so ....) So, if the firmware is intended for different distribution channell devices it will not install at all.

Try to rename the "/usr/share/onyx_reader/zlibrary/hyphernationPatterns.zip" file using otfm file manager. Rename it back later if you decide to use hyphenation again.

Okay, but how/where do I do this?

I found the OTFM program thread on Mobileread, so do I just load the program onto my M92 and follow your instructions?

Thanks so much for your help!
