Is there a way to enable text selection/Highlight on one book and disable on another?

as per title, I would like to read some books with highlighting and selection of text disabled (in bed, fiction, etc).

Other books (non-fiction, or during commuting) I would like to have selection and highlighting enabled.

If I remember correctly I was able to set this on a per-book basis until the 09.2021 update.

Now I can only find the Long press setting, but it's applied across all books. so i need to enable and disable (Tap and gestures -> Long-press on text -> do nothing, for example) every time I change book.

I usually am reading one fiction and one non-fiction at the same time so setting this every time I switch book is annoying.


Am I missing something or it is an impossible thing at the moment?

The behaviour you defined is expected.

People that want to disable highlights completely (because they never use it, had input difficulties ...) can disable it entirely with Gear -> Tap and gestures -> Long-press on text -> do nothing.

The rest of the people should be ok tweaking their desired action on long press, including a popup with all options (which is the default), and just avoiding any long press using mind power
