Thanks David! Sorry I missed that.

I've tried 1440 (24 hours), but it changes back to 60. I've just tried 900 (15 hours), and the UI changed back to 15 mins (weird), but so far, my Glo has only gone to sleep after 15 mins, not off. So it MIGHT be working, I don't know.

I'm extra uncertain because, when I set page refresh to 20 (see below), the UI says "OH THE HUMANITY!" instead of going back to 6, and it does actually only page refresh every 20 pages.

numPartialUpdatePageTurns=20


AutoOffMinutes=900 (15h) seems to work!

Full Book Page Number Issue

So I've added the FullBookPageNumber to the Feature Settings for my Kobo Aura HD, and while it works perfectly (in terms of displaying page x of xxx for the entire book instead of page x of xx for the current chapter), it seems the page number update freezes my Aura HD when the book is first opened, or when I open a different book and then go back to the original book I was reading.

Is this a known or common problem with this feature? I really like the feature, but the freezing issue that comes with it, not so much!

I have been using this feature for several weeks now, and never had a freezing problem. However, I have a Mini, not an Aura HD. I am still on firmware 2.6.1.

I haven't noticed any freezing issues on my Aura HD when using the full book page number setting.

I haven't seen any freezing either, but, I use a Glo, and, I'm not reading more than one book at a time at the moment. Are you, David? If not, it might be related to switching books? If I had to count all the pages all the time and tell the person reading how many pages I've counted I'd get confused as well if the reader kept switching books and making me count over and over again

At this time, I have 4 books open, 2 kepub, 2 epub. I often switch between books. I rarely have fewer than two books open at time.

Should have mentioned I'm on FW 2.8.1, and all files are kepubs.

That sounds like a known problem with kepubs that have embedded fonts. Pressing somewhere on the screen to bring the menu bars up and then dismissing them should display the text. If you select a font other than "Document default" is should prevent it from happening.

It adds a "Reading Stats" option to the menu for a book in the library list. When selected, it opens the reading stats page and shows the stats for the selected book.

I couldn't get

to work. It brings up Thesaurus in the dictionary list, but when I try to look up a word, I just get a blank dictionary window.

Pressing to bring up the menu does the trick, but the font trick you mention has no effect on my Aura HD.

Does anyone know what the following does, and with value has to be put there ?
[ApplicationPreferences]
• ClockDisplayDuration

Does it shows a clock on the bottom of the screen ?
