Well its not a big issue ,just a bit annoying
Cant argue that its not annoying, however it is interesting to note that anything that flashes a contrasting color dark to light tends to get peoples attention really fast.

Is it just me or there is no Search option in the Aura HD library?
Tap the icon in the top right.

Is there a (simple) way to add sorting (through a hack maybe) to the list of sosrt options? What I really miss is "Recently added" one...
"Recently Read" is the closest you will get. If you haven't started reading a book, it uses the date added to the device for the sort. It you select "Unread" as the "Show" filter, it shows only unread books in date added order.

I've added a column to my shelving options that gets assigned a value based on the date that the book was added to calibre. This way I end up with a series of shelves ZZ_Added_2014_02, ZZ_Added_2014_03 etc.

BTW, if the answer is, "'Cuz it should work!", I whole heartedly agree.
I stopped using the SD card for various reasons and there was zero improvement using internal memory in speed. There have been/are SD card issues, but opening collections menu is incredibly slow even with no SD card if a fair amount of collections.

Thanks for the reply. Sorry to hear about the Mini. Hope you find another, if you're looking.

My guess is collections menu processing is probably done on the fly rather than maintaining a list so coupled with the whole ever growing database it probably takes a while to create it. It'd be nice if they wised up, processed the chunk necessary to display the first page and did the rest in background as needed. I'd guess they are processing the whole list first for some reason, probably to re sort it, if there is a big delay. A linked list of indices could be left in place from the last time it was sorted and only require manipulation of recently added titles, if they weren't inserted as they were processed. The resulting overhead in storage would be minimal considering how large that internal db already is... but then they may be limited to the routines already written to access the db which may be clunky or require them to process it all at once... There are advantages to writing your own code vs. depending on a suite of functions provided by people who never envisioned your special needs. THIS IS A GUESS AND MAY SHARE THE SAME TENUOUS CONNECTION WITH REALITY THAT MANY ASSUME I MIGHT... ;-)

New HD (replacement from Kobo just arrived) just finished the initial desktop setup and loading my Kobo-bought books, and I have the same no Sort option on Collections that I had with my old HD.

Will edit the conf file as davidfor advised before, but I thought I'd leave a copy of the untouched file before I used Calibre for the first time, in case it helps nail down where the bug/feature is happening.

Ugh, is it just me or is there a problem with the "jump to page" fuction? On my KT, I touch the screen to bring up the menu, then touch the double arrow button, and the whole thing freezes. I'm trying to access my recipe in my cookbook (made in LibreOffice Writer then converted to epub with Calibre). I want to jump to page 1 (the index) so I can then tap the recipe to go straight to the page. Worked last time I tried, but must have updated since...

@davidfor - thanks for the Sort Collections fix. I have that function, which I didn't even know was out there. Makes me wonder what other functions I am missing without even realising it...

To all the people that have external SD card problems:
  1. have you defragged it?
  2. have you tried with a more well-perfoming card?

Defragging flash will only wear it out fatser, it doesn't improve performance since access times are independent of the accessed location on the flash.
Class 10 cards usually have worse random access times than class 4 or 6 except for the ultra or extreme variations. SD-cards are normally optimized for linear reads and writes like they are needed for video recording and high resolution photos.

I have an issue with one of my Glo's. Every time I connect it to calibre, several of the books on the device get reset to "new" and all reading progress is lost. What could be causing this? Database?

The same books are on my Mini (running 2.8.1) and this doesn't happen).

Ok I think it is the device database. So I should log out and log back in to fix it, yes?

First, just check that the time/date/timezone is set correctly on the Glo. Strange things like this can happen if the device's clock is wrong.

If the same thing happens when you power off and on, then it is the database. And yes, the fix is to log out and back in.
