Great pity this function would greatly improve the appearance of CR3

CR3 on Inkpad3

I'm thinking of buying an Inkpad3 for my son. Does anybody have experience with CR3 on the new Inkpad?

Cool Reader works in general on Inkpad 3, only the orientation fails in some ways. The Inkpad 3 has an orientation sensor, but the Cool Reader doesn't know about. The orientation icons are not displayed. PocketBook has probably changed the internal orientation processing so that the Cool Reader does not start after reading a book in landscape format. That's a pity, because the landscape format in combination with the keys and the two columns is ideal.

Since the last firmware update (U631.5.17.1409 20180227_121009) and last OTA Coolreader update (0.0.6-17-62.1 pro5 2018-02-13), I find that the light intensity vertical swipe doesn't work smoothly anymore on my Touch HD. In particular, a swipe upward does not turn on the light, while a swipe downward turns it off. Going to the system bar is needed to turn on the light; and when swipe down turns off, the system bar still shows the bulb. Which disappears expanding the bar (bulb grayed out), but reverting the slider to a high value, which is a bit odd.
Bug? Others affected? I think I remember swiping was still ok after the OTA (intoducing color control for HD2) and before the firmware update.

Can you try if deactivating standby in Coolreader solves the problem?

I've installed the latest FW on my Touch HD and the swipe works OK - after activating the light with a button (I have it on long press on the menu button). After that, I can swipe it off and on again. However, when I activate the pop down menu (system bar) to have a look at the light status with the light turned OFF in Coolreader, I need to turn it on again with a button because the swipe stops working.

I've got Coolreader installed on my new Inkpad 3 and it works fine. Sometimes it's difficult, though, to get out of the menus in the settings.
Brucelee, could you increase the size of the menu bars for higher resolution devices like the Touch HD and the InkPad 3?
Also, the buttons for the cite selection dialog are a bit cut off on those devices.

Here's an adapted version of the 631 skin for the Touch HD and InkPad with a larger font size. This makes navigation in the settings easier.
I've also changed the size of the cite selection dialog icons so they are not cut off anymore.
Just remove the .zip ending from the filename and copy the file to system/share/cr3/skins/.

Hi @lucyOne,
Thank you for your efforts. It is great!
But two things have to get better.
First: Header on the page is too narrow, it is very complicated to hit the back arrow for backwards.
Second, the About page has very small font on InkPad3 is very hard to read it.
I believe in the .xml file in the skin is a possibility. There is a section "ABOUT". maybe this helps?
Thank you
framorg

HI @framorg, actually, someone else on a German forum changed the font sizes. I am not familiar with XML. I've taken a look at the file but wouldn't know which value to change for the header or the about page. For me, it's already an improvement compared to the old version.
