Another bug that I wonder if others have seen

For many f/w revisions I have seen the odd occurrence of a word going "awol" after hyphenation, depending on the font and size settings on the Kobo.

I have a nice little test document that contains a few paragraphs from "The Silesian Station" that demonstrates this problem.

Using (for instance) Georgia, at a size of 14 clicks over from the left, line spacing and margins at 0, justification at the middle (ragged right) setting, the first line of the chapter reads
Quote:
'Tell me'. Russell said, somewhat unneces-
. With one extra click on the size it becomes
Quote:
'Tell me'. Russell said, somewhat unnec-
essarily.
and one size down one gets
Quote:
'Tell me'. Russell said, somewhat unnecessarily.
.

If anyone wants to see this, I have attached the excerpt from the ePub to this posting.

I have seen this twice. Seemed like more than one word missing but can't recall.

I have not seeen this on either of my devices using kepubs. Is this all on epub (vs kepub) files? I have basically given up on that format on the kobo devices. I no longer expect them to fix anything on the old epubs2 programming they have in place. They may yet prove me wrong, of course.

Its hard to say and seems to be one of these edge cases. I will try the rename and copy trick later and see.

I feel though that yet again this is an area where they have fallen down in their support especially seeing that the Adobe epub 2 support is the only way of reading library books on the Kobos, and in fact this sample was from the library.

Ok. I've forced the book to use the ACCESS engine. Now the problem seems not to occur.. however hyphenation of the unnecessarily does not occur either.

And no... I did not use the Extended driver, just did a manual transfer of the book to the Glo.

**AHH** If I force paragraphs to being right justified, then I do get hyphenation, but also do get the remainder of the word to appear on the next line.

Frankly to keep reminding Kobo of this. I'm sorry but the ability to READ books is the key thing here, and this can impact anyone, whether it be a POWER user or a Joe-Blow regular user who borrows material from a library!

Hopefully. After all they do sell epubs to the public at large and so should support them IMO.

And if they are supporting them for other devices, it seems that Kobo device owners should get at least the same level of support if not better

Different perhaps if they were giving them away.

There is a solution. Turn off hyphenation in the CSS.

But JSWOLF that is not the point. Sure I can also fix it by changing font size, or font, or concertimgn to kePub,

The issue is that these are solutions that the common user would not know.

Is this occurring in the new 2.6.1 firmware?

I do agree that the average user would not know how to turn off hyphenation. But, I wasn't suggesting it for everyone. I was suggesting it for those reading this thread.
