Could someone tell me which formats are searchable on the Libre?

Thank you.

I'm not sure about Libre but you can use search in jetBook and jetbook-Lite for all available formats except of PDF and HTML: ePub, Mobi, PRC, RTF, .txt, .FB2.

On my Libre I can search with Mobi, PRC, HTML, and txt. I cannot search with ePub or PDF.

Thanks. I generally use ePub which I saw I could not search. That's fine for novels, but I will use Mobi for reference documents.

I'm glad to know about the Searches one can do on the Libre. I might add that the Navigation arrows on right bottom only work on some file formats, I recall right, not on ePub or PDF, but on Mobi and txt. I've also noticed that the line-spacing on file formats differs, so that lines are closer together on PDFs and ePub (?) than they are on Mobi. (Or is there something else going on with line-spaciing?)

You are correct. I prefer the ePub format for its line spacing and readability. It's too bad that it doesn't support searching or page turns with the bottom right buttons. PDFs have even closer line spacing but there are always annoying gaps at the end of pages.
