Just installed 3.1. How do I implement the following new feature?

Allowed the choice of any user-defined book set as the default import destination book set

I played around with this new feature yesterday. It feels quite natural once you get a hang of it.

Go to where you do a book set switch, i.e., tap Sets in the library view. Find the table row with the blue download icon, and tap the icon. Then tap the row you want as the new import destination book set. Tap Done.

By the way, have you tried the following new features of MapleRead 3.1?

- Enhanced the import command to also recursively import book files from folders
- Added tighter integration with Files app so that files and folders can be copied between the app's File Sharing location and other locations, including cloud drives and AirDrop via Files

By combining the 2 new features above, I can easily import hundreds of my books already organized by folders on some of my cloud drives, and have them added to (new) book sets in MapleRead. Super convenient!!!

I got the impression that book sets are meant to sync between devices, but that isn’t happening. Did I misinterpret?

If things haven't changed, you must manually press "sync" to sync across devices, even the reading point, and that is the only and unique reason I'm not using this app.

I think it is the only app that synchronizes across devices that does it manually, syncs all at the same time and it is incredibly slow doing it. I call it the "fever" of the own server with the excuse of reliability, but there is nothing more reliable that big companies clouds like Dropbox or GDrive.

Any other application use to automatically sync the reading position (that are only a couple of bytes) on book or app closing.

I have a very fuzzy memory that MapleRead developers were considering the option of iCloud for syncing as an alternative to their private server. Am I remembering correctly, and if so, is this still being considered? Thank you

I was out of town and just got back. First, I need to see why I'm not being notified of posts to this forum, but I'll do that in a little bit.

I tried doing what you said with MapleRead SE on my iPad Mini 5 running iOS 12.4, but it didn't work when I tapped the icon. However, if I PRESSED the icon and waited for it to turn black, then pressed the set I wanted to be the default set, it did work.

Well, my subscription notification setting for "MapleRead - eBook Reader and Server for iOS" is set for instant, but I'm NOT getting any notifications.
