2. Move page numbers to the middle.https://ibb.co/iYUjgR
3. Cover the whole screen.https://ibb.co/ezsLMR
#2 will not work when in two-column mode. But yes, it would be nice to be able to move those elements. I would like to have some things on the left.

I have an issue with dictionary on CR3 with 5.xx firmware device (InkPad-2). It doesn't work properly with word forms. For example, if I click on word "grounds" it doesn't show "ground", or when I click on "ascribed" it doesn't show "ascribe".

I know that word forms are being built-in to each dictionary itself, but the thing is that literally the same dictionaries (same files) with CR3 on PB 301+ works perfectly fine. So it does with standard PB software, but not with this CR3.

Is there any fix to this issue available?

I suppose it's a FW issue, some different implementation of the dictionary stuff. If I remember correctly CR3 uses the same functions regardless of the FW.

EDIT:
If you'll look into cr3pocketbook.cpp in the following method you'll see there's no FW condition.
PHP Code:
void CRPbDictionaryView::translate(const lString16 &w
Translations are done by calling a system function:
PHP Code:
_translateResult LookupWord((char *)what.c_str(), &word, &translation); 
So there must be some behavior change in that.

Oh, thank you for indicating this, somehow I didn't realize it was a system function, but indeed, it's mentioned in inkview.h.

Not clear to me why standard PB software still works properly with dictionary and, at the same time, CR3 is still able work with the new firmware, even though it has some issues with dictionary. But maybe standard PB software uses some additional flags or additional functions to set dictionary mode or something like that.

Unfortunately, I was not able to find a newer version of SDK/inkview.h, which could shed some light on the issue.

I suspect it is a problem with permissions. The system dictionaries are stored under user name "sreader" (probably secure reader), and are not accessible by the "reader" account. For a while, the default account was "sreader", so that all applications could access the dictionaries. However, a year or two ago, they reverted to using "reader" as the default account, and I expect that means that non-system applications can no longer read the system dictionaries.

I wouldn't rely on PB system dictionaries, they are invisible to CR3 indeed. I just use my custom long-lived dictionaries in .dic format. CR3 sees them and works OK with them, but the only issue, it cannot make use of "morphems.txt" built-in to the dictionary files anymore. Hence it cannot translate English plural nouns (words -> word) or past form of the verbs (helped -> help), etc. Of course it's possible to type "word" and have it translated, but it's slightly inconvenient and slows down reading.

Oh, I see. That is perplexing. The coolreader code seems to do a lot of logging. If you enable it, perhaps you can figure out at which stage the lookup fails.

Is anyone else having a problem running Coolreader on firmware 5.17?

Since my Touch HD updated to 5.17, I have found that Coolreader stops working if I allow the reader to shutdown - on reboot, the new faster boot seems to stall for a few seconds and then the reader opens the book I was reading but in the PB reader. Even if I return to the library and long-hold to open in Coolreader, the reader now fails to open Coolreader and returns to the main menu. The Coolreader crash log shows nothing, perhaps suggesting that the reader never even found Coolreader.

If I reconnect my reader to my laptop and make any change to a system file - just sufficient to cause the reader to do a refresh on eject - Coolreader will become available again unless and until the reader shutsdown.

Ideas?

Yes, there's a bug with CR in the new FW. The last opened book opens with PB Reader on the first page after booting.
I can start any book normally with CR, though, after boot up. Do you have write protection on handlers.cfg?

@LucyOne - thanks for the response.

No, handlers.cfg is not write protected.

For now, my solution is to disable shutdown.
