Downloaded two dict files (one from the Pocketbook website itself), uploaded them in /system/dictionnaries and then ensured that all dictionnaries were checked in settings/languages on the PB. But still "problem opening the dictionnary" in CR.

Not sure which step I missed.

I've a few questions about CR (simply because I*don't understand but it might be pretty simple).

1) Why is the default font choice limited to 3 fonts while there are plenty of fallback fonts? (how can I*use another default font than the 3?)

2) I don't understand a word of all the fonts options. Is there a tutorial somewhere?

3) Similarly, I*don't understand most formatting option in CR.

4) What are the "depth", the theme and the "skins"? Should I*care?

5) Can I*put the status line at the bottom?

6) Is there a tutorial somewhere on how to use the annotation buttons? (I didn't manage to save an annotation so far).


That seems quite a lot but, honnestly, I'm really happy about CR (especially once I*will get the dict to work). It works really well on my PB632 and I'm really happy to have it as a default reader. I had it crash on a given book but clearing the cache solved the issue so I'm happy. Thanks for it :-)

What exactly do you mean by system settings? I activated the dictionary on the inkpad by going to setting/languages/available dictionarys. Is that not it?

1) Why is the default font choice limited to 3 fonts while there are plenty of fallback fonts? (how can I*use another default font than the 3?)
Normally, CR has access to the fonts in the system font folder on the device. You can copy fonts into it via USB and choose them in CR.

2) I don't understand a word of all the fonts options. Is there a tutorial somewhere?
I don't either. Google them. ;-)
The ones I adjusted are font embolding and gamma. These increase the contrast and readability.

3) Similarly, I*don't understand most formatting option in CR.
Try them out and see what changes. Unfortunately, there isn't a comprehensive manual.
Or read this thread from the beginning. A lot is exained here.

4) What are the "depth", the theme and the "skins"? Should I*care?
Only skin is imortant. You can choose one that matches your firmware and screen resolution.

5) Can I*put the status line at the bottom?
No.

6) Is there a tutorial somewhere on how to use the annotation buttons? (I didn't manage to save an annotation so far).
See other thread.

I used to have that error on one of my older devices. It somehow sorted itself out. Try a reinstall of CR or a system reset. Make sure the dictionary is in the right format and also activated in the PB settings.

CR has clearly access to the fonts because the fonts I*uploaded appear in the "fallback font" menu. But not in the "default font" menu. (as I prefer to read with style disabled, everything is in the default font for me).

Anyway, thanks a lot for your contributions and answers. Coolreader is a lot clearer for me now !

Can you share a "good" dic file so we can at least all try with the same file? And maybe share how it appears it the PB system list? That way, at least, we start all on the same ground.

I don't have access to a PC until next weekend. I took the .dic files from the thread here on Mobileread in the Pocketbook forum. I use the English monolingual dictionaries.

I have never heard of the fonts problem. I would try a reinstall or system reset here, too.
