Indeed a minor problem, I can live with it.

You can try using msword to format your books.
Make all paragraphs first lines=0.6mm, no linebreaks, justified, save as txt - it should be ok.
This is a bit tricky for me. Ms word its not on my PC. Open Office org. writer is it. As a newby its not all clear to me. I will try. Again thanks for your help.

Important!!!
Do not use names for your books, with first common part
Author_book1.txt
Author_book2.txt
Author_book(n).txt

Use inique first part of a name for books in one folder. (Book_author, or Book in folder "Author") or 01_book.txt, 02_book.txt, etc.

Otherwise you can see all books called "Author_book1.txt" with the same text.

Is it possible to write macros in Open Office org. writer?
Then you can do so:
- Start new macros
- Select all (Ctrl+A) ???
- Edit - Paragraph - alignement justified, first line - ident 0,6mm -- ok.
- Stop your macros.

Save as txt.
Now you can use this macros to prepare your books from doc, rtf, html, txt, etc.
Just open file, choose execute your macros, save.

Also you can use Bookdesigner (http://www.the-ebook.org/e107/download.php?view.8)+ update (http://www.the-ebook.org/e107/download.php?view.9) for it. It is free and has english manual.
first install BD, then unpack update in it's catalog.

This thing above I have done and it will take some time to learn. One or two day's. I hope it will take not longer to show you the results.

TaKir,

Till now I was not successful in bringing the nicer font to my V8 device. So I made a picture of the zoomed screen with printed text on paper on the side. The grey screen looks in reality more bright. The quality of the letter on the paper is what I wish. In the future Jinke software will make it easy with one push on the button. I hope.

You have chinese firmware from Jinke, I guess. That is why text formatting is not so good, as we have using last russian firmware.

In coming soon russian update we will have:
- new additional fonts+ easy switch to desired font and font size
- more font sizes
- good working html reader

Jinke has no rights for russian software and it's updates.
They can do some software changes, but not so good and not so soon.

The spring hinge of the helpscreen shutter has broken down. And the flap will stay as you like it. I won't send it to China for repairs though. It is not a big nuisance.

After a weekend struggling with Paint to get 2 pictures in one, this is the result. The upper half is the normal letter size and the Russian below is zoomed. From Charlie and the chocolate factory.

Update 1: I have taken a picture under better lighting conditions. So it won't scare you of. Trouble is indeed without good light the screen is to dark to read. It concerns me a lot.

Update 2: Pictures in different light placed together.edit.

My old bookstand as I used sometimes for easy reading.

The Hanlin V8 (with not yet integrated) bookstand. Take the cover as base and something between to keep the screen upright. Use button 8 for the next page.

I think the paging speed of the V8 became faster than the sample V8.
GOOD!
I want to know more about V8, such as spec., function, supporting format, etc.

Finally there are some results with a nice font, Georgia. With the help of Open Office org. The picture as proof. But I have to work on it, because when I want the next page, the same page comes up. After that, the next page twice again, etc...

edit. Second picture added. Book from; Classic Literature Library.
