Librera should support Boox hardware keys from the box, if not works you can run keycode util @@keycode_config in the search input field, you can send me keycode values I can make them as default (please see screenshot)
Thanks Foobnix, Gimble gived the solution, it's depending from the Max2 :

If you go by internal link, in the bottom left should appear icon to return for previous page or you can use back button
Thanks again, I found the the icon

Please change font size from the book menu for text book format like epub (not zoom in-out)
It's working too, but for the Max2 in landscape mode, a value of '30' is very low. Could you go to '500' (or more), like this in portrait mode or in landscape mode it will give a very good result, like the pagination of a paper book with 1 column or 2 column ?

Beta 7.8.40 : links and pagination.

I use the beta version 7.8.40 for EPUB or PDF. I've clean the configuration like indicated here : https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...&postcount=402

For each book (EPUB or PDF) the configuration is forgotten. At each time, when I open the book that I am reading, I must configure 'Book mode' and '2 pages'.

For EPUB files, the links are not usable. With Neoread2 (from Onyx), some text are well placed, like some stars '*' between the paragraphs, the pagination is goof but not with the Beta 7.8.40. For the EPUB format, I found the same issues than with my M92 and FBReader.

This situation could be normal, I don't know if Librera is mainly done for PDF or is previous to support PDF and EPUB at same level.

Randy11,

You can remember reading mode (from the left menu or in the dialog, set "Remember")
2 pages is individual settings for every book, if you open the same book second time will be 2 pages on screen.
There is one problem some settings are general but some individual for book, I don't know how to better organize it for users.

>For EPUB files, the links are not usable. With Neoread2 (from Onyx), some text are well placed, like some stars '*' between the paragraphs,
Please add screenshots and book for check

Hi,

I still do not have the app installed and I already love it!
A quick question... I understand that at the moment we cannot take handwritten notes with pen. Am I right? Any plan to implement this feature?

Thanks!

You can add draw handwritten annotation in the document only for PDF books. But for all book formats you can easy add text bookmarks with notes.

This part is not easy to find for me, I think that I find the trick, but I'm not sure. Could you make a screenshot ?

For the moment, I can find a book that I can give her, all are commercial... O'Reilly, The Pragmatic bookshelf or a source like https://www.7switch.com/fr with many editor. I know that it's not easy for you to understand the situation.

I give you my list of troubles :
  • in EPUB, the link is not usable;
  • in PDF file, Pragmatic Bookshelf, the link is not followed, but the page is turned;
  • 2 PDF files from O'Reilly, Programming Ruby (bought when O'Reilly sell directly the books), the pagination is awful;
  • 2 EPUB file to compare with NeoReader 2 where the links are usable;
  • the same EPUB file with NeoReader2 with the code for the Sudoku;
  • the pagination is not the same with Neoreader2 and Librera;
  • for EPUB, could you authorize a BIG value for the margins, the indentation has the same maximum value than the margin :-( , see the two pictures. For the Max2, a maximum value for the margin of 500 will be useful to have the same aspect than a paper book.

I am going to search some file that I can put her to help you.

Thanks for your help !

I've found a free EPUB file with some links on Gallica : http://gallica.bnf.fr/services/engin...dvancedSearch/

I've check the links with "L'esprit des lois" of MONTESQUIEU.
