In case you want to turn off "Time left in book" function...

In case you want to turn off "Time left in book" function in your Paperwhite, just type in search bar:

;ReadingTimeOff

Just found this myself thinking about the ";ReadingTimeReset" trick.

";ReadingTimeOn" will turn it back on, of course.

I wonder why such basic stuff is not in a menu.

If you add a function, there are always people who don't want it, so an Off-button should be mandatory. I've had my Reading Time majorily messed up a few times because of flipping through a book, so a Reset-button would be very handy.

Nice trick. I didn't like the time left initially because I thought it didn't really make sense and how could they accurately determine how fast you read. But now I see it as a nice alternative to the progress bar which was on the KK.

Are there any other hidden commands?

Generally speaking those command were stored in a single file somewhere on the touch.

Eureka would probably remember where.

Thank you for this!

After I tried a lot, let me tell people: you have to type that inside a book, not on the home screen. It will work for all books though.

Greets!

I think it would be helpful to include the reset function with the on/off entries in the Wiki:

;ReadingTimeReset

Done.
Anybody can edit the wiki, including you.
So if you feel that something can be added or improved, you can make any change3s you deem appropriate.

I have gladly done the editing, and I am not pointing this out because I am lazy, but in the future you do not have to wait for somebody else to make the edit. The more of us will make such small edits, the more complete our wiki will become.

Noted. Thank you. I did not want to assume that was the case.

Leaving aside why you would want to turn it off, what is wrong with just tapping the 'n mins left in chapter/book' label so as to display location instead? Or using the Reading Progress menu item? Not that it is not cool to type commands in the search box...

I don't know about anyone else, but I didn't realize that was an option.
