ideally, we will get, or collectively build a table which shows for each reader app, how the " read" button in CC is handled.
and for 2 cases ( unless they turn out to have exact same outcomes):
1. CC download folder is in main memory.
2. CC folder is on SD card

a probable further complication: some android versions/devices allow apps to be installed to or moved to SD card
So, the full combinations nightmare to analyse is
location of CC app: internal or on SD
location of reader app: ditto & for each format, if multiple formats/readers are in use
CC download folder: internal or SD

I have made several attempts to read googles files provider/content provider coding rules, which the new CC is trying to adhere to , but they are written for a target audience of expert coders. Let's just say it's messy.

the old CC "read" action just told the reader app where the book file was - no extra copies were made, but google wants to put an end to that behaviour

could be that folks who always (re)opened a book from within CC for reading will have to change their ways

the calibrebox app does exactly the same . they are following google's spec for file sharing between apps.

Any way to have an option to have the old "read" action? Because having multiple copy kind of defeats the purpose of CC as a manager only, especially when using ReadEra (with Storage permission given, it will put the copy in the Download folder).

install an old version and block updates. that's the only way to keep a feature that Google ( not cc) decided has to go

but then you have to live with whatever bugs are present in the old version. On the bright side, you'll never have to pay a subscription
