There are certain fonts that add a 'space" (or two) after an apostrophe, for example "Adobe Ming std" has this issue (in English) so that a sentence will look like this:

"I' ve noticed that when using certain fonts, It' s really difficult to read if the author' s style has a lot of contractions or possessives"

Is this addressable in the current KOReader settings?

Are you sure it's the font and not the book? Most such characters are also available in a "full width" version for Chinese for example, as well as a right single quotation mark for Korean. They'll be wide in any font.

Thank you for the reply. Yes, I am certain that it is not any particular book. The problem is reproducible across my entire library, which (so far) are all native English language books and it's only a few select fonts that have this additional space after an apostrophe.

If it's the font that for some reason decides there should be a big space there nothing can be done about it without editing the font. But since you said Adobe Ming (which is for Chinese) I do still strongly suspect a Chinese full-width character instead of a normal apostrophe.

I'm sure you're correct. Any idea where I might find an English version of that font?
It's really unique and I like the look of it - nothing like it in the selection I have in there at the moment.

I think @NiLuJe would suggest to try FontForge.

Thanks for the tip, it looks interesting, I was just looking for a repository of fonts but FontForge is a font editor, which addresses my issue - I think I should be able to edit that font to remove the space after the apostrophe, will check it out.

Such a question:
What is connection between notification popups at the top of screen and "Auto Standby" plugin?
If this plugin is off in "Plugin management", then notifications do not disappear from the screen after a couple of seconds, but hang until the next touch of the screen. Checked by changing the brightness at the left edge of screen...

If the plugin is disabled the cpu goes to sleep after 2 seconds of idle time and wakes up again when you touch the screen.

If the plugin is enabled the cpu goes to sleep after a few seconds based on a computation of the timestamp of previous touch inputs and a window frame.

When the plugin is enabled you can tweak the parameters used in the computation going to settings->device->autostandby (or similar, from memory)

And when the plugin is disabled in Settings->Device->AutoStandby, what idle options are used?

No idle unless you press the power button. Battery drains much more.

These are not strictly input events, so logically they don't fit with the rest of the code in that file, but you can only have one event handler function registered with InkView, so the orientation events have to be handled there along with the other events.
Hello @rkomar, thank you again for your research. Input events for PocketBooks are now handled in the `ffi/input_pocketbook.lua`. AFAIK the code you're linking is a part that is not used for Pocketbook's in their normal state anymore (might still be used if rooted?) but someone more knowledgeable may correct me of course:

https://github.com/koreader/koreader...pocketbook.lua

I've been trying to catch the EVT_ORIENTATION events there but no joy sadly. I also tried the `IsGSensorEnabled` and `GetGSensorOrientation` methods and there seem to work nicely. Sadly I will have to poll these every few seconds to make it workable.

I would prefer to use the EVT_ORIENTATION but I need some confirmation on where you saw them published on a unrooted device. It might be that you're using a rooted device and thus have more access to the event's that are published.

In any case. If there is no unrooted access to the gsensor events I will research on how to implement the gsensor with polling in koreader without draining the battery (this is the biggest hurdle).

You do not need root privileges to get notification of events. Do you see any events at all? There should be plenty of other events coming through. If you see other events but not EVT_ORIENTATION events, then you probably have the g-sensor disabled in the system configuration. If you don't see any events of any kind, then you have other problems. Maybe you didn't enable the code in your build, or you are in the wrong process (it looks like the events are handled in the forked child), or inkview events are not enabled from LUA,... Add some debug code to make sure that InkViewMain(pb_event_handler) is being called in your version.

You can follow my work on the gsensor here: https://github.com/koreader/koreader/pull/9873

For now it's poll based but I hope to make it event based.

I've been quite stumped on the event implementation. The gsensor is enabled and I see the system responding to the gsensor (I can see the device waking up). I do receive all button and touch events in my debug code but for some reason no orientation events. But I might be doing something wrong. I have a PocketBook InkPad Color where I'm testing on.

Would you be willing to check on your device if you can see the events in the debug logs of KoReader? To rule out device error.

I tried enabling the g-sensor on my 6" Color device, but I don't see any response from the device to that (apart from the power LED coming on briefly if the orientation changes). The home screen never changes orientation, nor does my pbimageviewer app receive any EVT_ORIENTATION events. So, it appears that my Color device has broken firmware with respect to the g-sensor. I never noticed before because I usually keep that feature disabled. I don't think I can test your app and get any meaningful results for you. Maybe this is a clue that your Inkpad Color is also broken in a similar way. Everything works as expected when I enable the g-sensor on my ancient PB902 device.
