No tips as such but I remember someone else asking about themes recently so will give a few pointers.

Themes basically change the display of your pocketbook and namely the menu page. You can find other themes in a zip file in this thread:

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=66786

While your PB is connected to your computer, install the themes. Copy the .pbt files over to: your pocketbook drive | system | themes

And then on the PocketBook itself you will need to select your theme by going to Main Menu | Appearance | Theme

There is some more info on themes here which I had to get google to translate from Russian:

Dunno if the language is saved in the themes, perhaps your PB is german now :/

Thanks for the help. There are some pretty good themes here and at the Russian site there is apparently everything you need to create themes, although I haven't managed to do it yet.

The main advantage is that some of these themes don't just change the appearance, but also change the configuration of the main menu, changing the button options and layout.

Here one tip from me:

- If you select start/end logo by random, you will occasionally get the standard "Bookland" logo as well. If you do not want to have it this way, just call one of your custom logos "bookland.bmp" and place it in the "system\logo" folder, as usual. It will override the built-in Bookland logo.

Perhaps even Guys In Kiev (TM) do not know yet that it works ;-)
I had some .otf fonts I wanted to try. They also worked when I renamed them to .ttf.

If you have a lot of books using View->Easy can help by greatly reducing the number of pages you have to go through.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean. If I press 'view' in the file window I just get the options: list, details and thumbnail. And I can't find any 'view' in settings.

That's what I get when I hit 'view', too. But I'm using the standard PB360 installation software. Maybe this is with the wrist page turn version of FBreader, which I haven't gotten around to installing yet.

Thats exactly what I have as well. Nothing in there says 'easy'.

Maybe the firmware is translated into Romanian and the list view is called "easy"?

Careful investigation seems to suggest it's not the new firmware but the theme I'm using. It's named five and I fished it out of the ebook forum.

Made a screen shot of how the "Easy" view looks like and the theme is in the zip file.

Warning. Selecting the view "Easy" and then changing to a theme that does not have that view will make your book list invisible but selectable. To fix it just select one of the views that exist.
