Key to Jump to 30%, 40%, 50% etc of book

Hi all, i just found it's possible to jump to 30%, 40%, 50% etc of book by holding down the number key - eg 8 to go to 80%.

This works for lrf, epub rtf and probably the other formats.

I havent seen this documented anywhere else

awesome find, I did not know that. I have some reference books that dont create a TOC, that will make it much better to jump to the correct section rather than playing guess the page number.

Wow! Thank you for your discovery. And we're still exploring the device months and years after it came out!

Thanks for this tip. I wonder why they wouldn't document this cool feature?

Surely they do. Page 38 (US manual):

Good spotting igorsk.

Thinking about it, holding 1 goes to the start and holding 0 goes to the end - that leaves 8 buttons left to jump to places within the book.

It seems

2 goes to 11%,
3 goes to 22%

4 goes to 33%
5 goes to 44%
6 goes to 55%

7 goes to 66%
8 goes to 77%
9 goes to 88%

Surely Sony would not be so sloppy to permit an unconscionable 12% difference between button '9' and button '0'!
