Awesome!
This has instantly became my favourite theme.
Where did you find it?
Are there other themes featuring this option?

Where are these themes located. I have just the few that were posted about. But this one (five) I haven't seen anywhere.

I tried out that theme which is decent. But I wish the authors name would more to the right so we could see more of the title of the book. The reason I say this is because when I upload from Calibre I have it list the books by Title/series title, series number and the author. But so far I haven't seen a theme that shows the whole title (the whole title I am using). Much less even the majority of the title. I wonder if I should take out series title. Then I would at least be able to see the series number of the book.

There is an option to sort by series but that doesn't seem to work.

I use directory structure
/books/author_name/Series_name/0X_name_of_book.xyz
where 0X is the number in series - exactly for that reason.
In the newest firmware when you select the book in library, after a brief pause the name of the book is scrolled, so you can read it.

Now, with this new theme we need to be able to remap long-press-down in library view to jump 5 books down, so I do not have to press down 14 times when I want to get to the 15th book on page ;-). I know, I know, I should not look gift horse into mouth ;-)

Haha. I went back to 14.2 today to see if the PDF problem I was having was related. Haven't got around to reinstalling the latest firmware. So while I was looking at my books I couldn't figure out why my book titles weren't scrolling. Was driving me nuts. Forgot I went back to 14.2!

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.
This is great! Thank you

Try to load Calendar from here
http://pocketbook-free.sourceforge.net/en/index.shtml
Is it the same application?
I do not have my PB available at the moment.

The problem is, that I have downloaded most of the apps from the above address and also some from http://bookfast.org/category/pocketbook/programs

By the way, I would love to have source code for the five theme so I could try to tweak it a little bit. Or perhaps try to transplant the Easy View mode to other themes.
I was looking for it on The-ebook.org but with my very rusty Russian or with Translate.google.com the site is ... overwhelming ;-)

Same issue as with 14.2, no Calender listed in Applications. Small change though.

Calc
Cards
Chess
Clock
Dictionary
SeaBattle
Sudoku

So the only change was renaming ABBYY Lingvo Dictionary to Dictionary.

Any other suggestions?

Well I downloaded Calender and put it in the Applications folder. And while it is listed in Applications now. It doesn't open. Hour glass pops up and nothing happens. Ill try a reboot and try it again. But it looks like that doesn't work for some reason. Odd. Seems like it should.

Nope reboot didn't help which I didn't think it would. It just sits with the hour glass.
