Went for the Kobo Forma. The shop only had two in stock. First had that damn hard power button. Second was perfect. Lucky me.

Thanks all!!

The power button is pretty firm by design, given its location .

Yeah, the first one was pretty impossible to trigger. Second was still firm, but at least manageable. I guess this has to do with the position and the waterproof certification.

How do I restore KOReaders default settings? Should I just download the zip again and copy over the existing koreader directory?

Somehow hold-presses are no longer bringing up the dictionary, and the file browser is also a bit wonky, for most folders it says there are items, but when I navigate in them, there's nothing there.

Copying over the existing directory will keep your settings. You'd either have to delete it completely, or only delete reader.settings.lua and the settings subdirectory. That being said, take a look in settings → highlight action to see what it's set to first.

The system doesn't dive into subdirectories for performance reasons, so it's arguably better not to list any number at all. The number of items is all that can be known more or less for free, not whether they can be opened.

Found my answer, mostly:

1) You can reinstall from kual > koreader > tools
2) however, the setting was not a koreader global setting, but a book setting: I had set highlight_disabled = true. I thought that would just disable creating highlights, but it disables dictionary as well. Koreader saves lua files next to the book file.
3) I think the library not showing the books is because they are awz3 files

On my PB631 I observe a very mildly annoying behaviour of koreader - If the reader is turned on with "open last book" tagged, and the last book was opened by koreader, then koreader opens without refreshing the screen, giving rise to bad ghosting. Only in this case ghosting ever gets to a level which at all bothers me; and anyway one forced page refresh just restores the rendering as it should.

I've opened a ticket at https://github.com/koreader/koreader/issues/7164 .

Out of curiosity, any other PB owner observes anything the like? I.e. is it a poor waveform tuning on my specific reader, a problem with 631 (as I recall from work of the past months, low level calls required a set of quirks before they worked reliably on its specific kernel), or a more general problem of KoR on PBs?

Hallo to all of you guys and especially to developers of this magnificent Koreader app for our beloved Pocketbook devices

I think that many people are reading scanned PDF files which contain only images, without any embeded text layers or something similar. This type of files cannot be anotatted in any way that I can remember.

Default ebook reading app on Pocketbook is very limited, and slow , very slow, but have this functionality of adding small handwriting like gestures that can underline or mark text, and you can also attach small text comments to any scribbled line you enter in PDF.

I think many people are looking for this functionality. Koreader has many, many awesome features, comples gesture system, but I think lacks this very needed functionality for productive usage of scanned documents. What do you think guys?

Big cheers to developers

You can select the text the same way as if there were a text layer actually. Results will probably be better with OCR.

Oh , I am very sorry, I was stupid .... I did not even try because I thought that if there is no text, no OCR layer , just photo ...


I feel like some sort of hand scribble , hand underlining, small short annotations are very convenient, like with real book...It is allmost natural do do this.... I realise that maybe it is big rewrite of whole code thing to accoplish this, I suppose....

Latest firmware updates of Pocketbook made very promissing and smooth hanwriting experience, with very accurate and allmost no-lag gestures...Default reading app uses this and it is very usable.

Right, the detection of what looks like text blocks and performing OCR on it is built-in. It's possible on the slow CPUs in these devices because it only performs OCR on the area you select.

Scribbled notes, I don't know how much of a rewrite would be involved, but in any case a whole lot of a write.
