I like the new viewer for reading. I don't read on my desktop and I use the viewer just for checking things and I think the old viewer might be better for that. But this new one will do. I don't really have a problem with it.

Really like the new side status/slider bar in e-reader 4.1.

If one keeps the mouse on that side bar, no display of the black triangles. Plus all the other benefits: Knowing where one is in the text. Being able to drag it up or down to where you want to go in the document. Etc.

Excellent addition!!

Nice to know, though, that those huge black triangles can somehow be reduced in size.

Seems the best thing to do is to offer option not to show them. You know, like, a little check box?

__ Want huge black triangles in margins distracting you continually??

NOOOOOOOOO.........

Huge?
They were tiny. by tiny I mean smaller than any of icons in this reply box. Plus the auto-hide, meant I really had to look to locate them. AFAIK I had pretty much default viewer settings (paged mode)

IIRC depending on margin size their size goes up to 75px I guess I can make the max size 25 px instead, so they will be about as large as the mouse cursor.

YES!!!! Kovid, you da man!!!

Another note, while I have your attention:

Sometimes the side scroll bar is missing.

No idea why that happens.

There should be no side scroll bar in paged mode, you mean flow mode?

Following on from nkormanik's post there might be some wider glitch re the Scroll Bar in 4.1 as I have a different issue with it.

In Paged Mode with Show Scroll Bar unchecked when I open a book there is a scroll bar. The scroll bar stays as I navigate through that book. If I then go to Preferences and open the Scrolling Behaviour tab then without doing anything at all return to the book, the scroll bar is gone.

If I close and open the book again the same issue is repeated.

It's not an problem for me, but I can't see any obvious difference between Paged mode or Flow mode, and I get the scroll bar irrespective of what mode I have set. Here's my Layout settings

I have Show a scroll bar checked, I use the scroll bar button to give me a visual indication of where I am in a book.

All I know is that sometimes the scroll bar shows up, and I like it.

Please make it easier to pick whether the scroll bar shows up or not.

Like, for instance:

__ Do you want a scroll bar??

YES!!!!

Ditto. Exactly what I was trying to say.

Just a humble suggestion, mind you.

ALLOW user to ALWAYS have scrollbar showing, if that's what they want.

And make those silly black triangles smaller, or option to hide 'em completely.

I mean, Please????

And, of course, thank you so very, very much....

You're amazing.

As is all of Mumbai, and even all of India.

Umm if you turn on the option for the scrollbar it will be always showing. And the black triangles have already been made smaller.
