Since this appears to be on the verge of being an obsession for you, if it REALLY matters that much - roll your own. Calibre IS open source, after all

His Supreme Excellence, Overlord General Marshal Emperor Bookstooge is taking this VERY seriously. You can tell because he is referring to himself in the 3rd person. It doesn't get much more serious than that!

And he even voted. He does expect his lambskin scroll with his full title and deeds to any lands that go along with the title by New Years.

ps,
Australia would be nice to own...

The Anti-Triangle League just garnered a second vote!

Momentum, baby. Momentum.

You democrat progressives can change your soft-headed vote, you know. If sense returns.

Keep the world CLEAN!!

Nope. You get to be part of the "I don't like it so nobody gets to have it" group.

Either set the margins to ne too small for the triangles or just ignore them.

Huh. I can't tell if you're just being Captain Oblivious here, or being as smartass as me.

When you say you love the triangles will you then get clarification. Oh and you have to love the triangles so much that you use them every day.

Not everyone uses the same OS.
On Linux, not everyone has the same GUI/desktop/wmanager/theme

I'm baffled as to what these are. Are they aluminium foil covered cheese? What OS are you using?

I have a toolbar on the left and a TOC between it and the page. I have a Scrollbar on the right.
All those things can be turned off to leave just the text.

It's not a problem as the laptop is a STUPID 16:9 format (I'd prefer 16:10, 4:3 or 5:4 as long as more than 1080 lines). The text window is set to be about the same amount of text and shape as an eink reader. Too wide a page is tiring to read, which is partly why I have web browser full height but about 2/3rds width.

I vote to leave the Reader as it is, though I use it only to check:
1) Cover OK and only one of it
2) All of TOC works
3) Headings are all correct format & style
4) First paragraph after a heading or break has no indent, but otherwise matches all the other body text paragraphs (1st line indented).
5) Images are OK
6) Other links are OK

I actually read novels on eink or paper. Not on the laptop since I got my first Kindle. Mostly I use a Kobo Libra H2O now as I like the page buttons, though swapped order works best.

Choice is good.

The issue at hand (for those that apparently have difficulty READING TO BEGIN WITH) is:

There should be an option (please?) to NOT show the triangles for "Next" and "Previous" page in the margins.

Super simple.

What's the big deal? Just give us the OPTION to keep the page as uncluttered and clean as possible.

From the voting so far, it is overwhelmingly obvious that the Calibre reading public agrees with the above humble request.

Kovid????

Really nkormanik, can you tell me where the terrible triangles are?
