If you press on a page that has already been bookmarked, then you erase that mark, so pressing in the upper right corner works like a toggle.
Hi Josebla,
I’m new in what’s to do with e-readers but now thanks to you my pdf reading is much more efficient. Much appreciated!

Really looking forward to that left handed mode <3 Some other minor things are that if you copy an ebook onto the device it renders the cover but if you delete it and reupload it fterwards, it'll just show a blank cover.

Also, numbering should be going:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, ...
Instead of the current situation where it is:
1, 10, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, ...

In alphabetical fields it is impossible.
If you want this you have to write 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10, ....

It is handled from left to right - therfore the "1" in "10" is smaller than the "2".

Above all, and apart from solving problems and adding new features, my conclusion and what makes me happy is that this device is "alive", that Boyue is often upgrading its firmware and keeping it up to date. We have seen many devices of multiple kinds die because the manufacturer didn't upgrade them nor take care of their users. Thanks to Boyue for that 博阅

(PD: i had some problems with notes taken on pdf documents in older firmwares, like duplicating my writings in pages other than where I wrote, and even losing some pages in the Notes app; I don't know if they are solved as I didn't have time to test recently, but I'll inform as soon as I can)

Linux seems to have no issue with it so I wouldn't say it's impossible. I could probably get Calibre to prepend a zero on single digit numbers I guess but neither my Kobo nor my desktop seem to require hacks like that.

Linux has the same problem.
Sorting alphanumeric fields (text) starts from left to right and "1" from "10" is lower than "2"

It depends on how you set up the tool that does the sorting. In Linux, "sort -V" is a good start.

From the man page of sort:
-V, --version-sort
natural sort of (version) numbers within text

Hi,
Trying to turn on BT/wifi/backlight in popup menu (on top), but it just close and do nothing. After reboot it works fine.
Does anyone have this bug?

Hi everyone

I ve been thinking for some time now to get mimas but i was wondering if you could help me out make the right choice between that and alita since onyx is out of my budget.

I mostly need it to read manga, pdfs and epubs. I dont care much for note taking but i would like to be fast enough and be able to read pdfs without the need of reflow since they will have maps in them. Also to read manga is important to have almost no ghosting. My current boyue t61 has a lot of ghosting and automatic refresh doesnt happen with 3rd party readers.

The question is shoyld i go for alita and pay that extra 100 euros or just get mimas?

There is ghosting and automatic refresh doesn't happen with 3rd party readers like tachiyomi. The ghosting is no so bad but if you are looking for it you will see it. And I don't think this problem is solved in neither the alita nor the onyx readers because the external apps don't have access to the refreshing function. With the system apps you just can adjust the refreshing rate to almost every page but I think you can do that with your current boyue.

If you don't need notetaking then Mimas should do.
As far i can get Alita has new design and more RAM: 4 vs 2. But same CPU and software (same bugs and errors then ).
BUT if you're planning to use apps that are heavy on RAM then better get Alita
For ghosting issue you can set refresh cycle for system app as mentioned above. Don't know about 3rd party apps
Boyue guys reply to your feedback so there're high chances for bugs getting fixed if you submit about errors properly
