Thanks - but when/why would one use Pages in chapter in preference to Position in chapter, i.e. what's the design intent of having both.

A terracotta clay tablet might be better for 'Paged mode'. More in keeping with the scroll. Clay tablets predate papyrus scrolls and they last longer

Kovid surely has that answer! I hope he also sees my question about the paged mode icon

Position and pages are different kinds of metrics like location and pages on a kindle. Which you prefer is your choice and you can excercise that preference at the book or the chapter level.

@comfy: the icon is just the unicode character for page U+1f5cf unfortunately the unicode standard in their infinite wisdom didnt make it an "emoji" so it renders smaller depending on the interface font.

@anyone - what is the difference between the Pages in chapter and Position in chapter - see prior screen shot.

Idea for what, Betterred ? All that I said was a suggestion for the programmers of calibre, to make the reading experience more fluid.

And the creator of Calibre has answered you.

ditch the mouse scroll wheel.
a tap of the spacebar triggers a page change without losing your place (just like a real paper book page turn)
