Question New Forma, a few questions

Just purchased a Forma and have a few technical questions about it. Firstly, in landscape mode, all touch buttons seem to not work correctly and are off. I saw someone post about it and was curious if a workaround existed or if I have to return the device. Secondly, I downloaded my own books onto the Forma and cannot seem to make bookmarks on them - am I missing something?


Kobo support answered the above questions with Restart / Factory restore the device (which didn't work) and "only official store purchases can bookmark". I don't like those responses.

What format are your books?

All my books are sideloaded (via calibre) epub or kepub. I haven't had any problems using the top-right "dogear" for bookmarking. Similarly Forma menu buttons seem OK in Landscape - although I don't actually use Landscape much myself.

Not a big fan of landscape mode myself but turned on auto-rotate and all buttons function as expected. Able to dogear in any screen position. I exclusively side-load all content in epub format. What version of software are you using?
