It means the returns for bothering to fix up this plugin have just diminished even more. So the odds of this plugin being fixed by the author are (most likely) not going to happen.

And since user_non posted the following on March 3rd, 2013, asking for this plugin to be fixed is not going to happen.

The fact that the APNX generation can now be controlled via a custom column has not made it any more (than it already was) fundamentally useful than the plugin. No new functionality was added. Only a new entry point for setting the mode was added.

And none of this has anything to do with Kindle for Android. (still)

I am unsure why you care enough to tell people things they already know, that don't affect you in the slightest, for no net effect other than irritating people with your pedanticism.
Let us be perfectly clear on one thing: you have not told anyone anything new.

It is enough that some people need it for exotic reasons. And they know how strange they are, and that user_none doesn't care about this at all, so you have nothing new to add. Please leave well enough alone unless you have something of intellectual value to say.

Thank you.

I'm new to the forums and I dont have a good understanding of ebook formats, etc. But from some research online I understand that this plugin can add page numbers to a book if I convert it from epub to mobi.

I'm trying to follow the instructions of the OP (select the book in calibre and click the APNX button) but I dont see the APNX button anywhere. I've confirmed that calibre shows the plugin as installed. Can somebody please send me a screenshot or describe where the button is or how to use the plugin?

Also, I have an Ipad and I'm hoping to use this on the kindle app on the ipad. If I use the latest versino of the plugin, will I still run into the issue of page numbers only working on an actual kindle device but not on the ipad app? Or has the issue been resolved?

Thanks!

@book_reader - Have a look in Preferences->Toolbars->The main toolbar. Assuming its not in the RH list, find the APNX icon on the LH list and 'move' it to the RH list.

Sorry I can't answer your ipad/kindle questions, but I'm sure someone else will chime in soon enough.

Nope, doesnt help. Attached screenshots showing that I have the latest plugin version installed, my toolbar doesnt have the button and that its not in the list of available buttons either.

@book_reader my bad, apparently the plugin has not been updated to make it compatible with calibre 2.x.

There are only a few PI's that haven't been updated to calibre 2.x specs, here's a list of PI's that have and have not been updated ==>> Stats for porting of calibre plugins to Qt 5

You're usage case on IOS would seem to parallel the Android usage case for using this plug-in. Hopefully someone will update it to work with calibre 2.x, so that Android and IOS users can make use of it.

Thanks Peter, yes that worked and I was able to generate the apnx file.

But now my next question is what do I do with the apnx file? Kindle on ipad shows the ebook fine when I just copy the mobi file from itunes. Then I also try copying the apnx file in the same way, but nothing happens. No page numbers, only location numbers in the reader.

In fact, I dont even see the page numbers using kindle previewer. How do I make the previewer look at the apnx file? I just put both the mobi and apnx in the same directory and opened the mobi in the previewer, but that doesnt seem to do anything (meaning just shows me the location numbers).

Thanks for all the help...

Take a look at the first page, first question asked by a user, and particularly post #13...

tl;dr
This is expected. The plugin is designed for use with E-ink Kindles.

page numbers

Will this show actual page numbers on the Kindle instead of location numbers for each e-book

This plugin is not needed. Calibre can generate an APNX file on sending KF8 eBooks to a Kindle. You'll have to have a look around to find out how to configure this.
