Thank you for your prompt reply!

Most grateful,

Exclamation Calibre Metadata on Librera

foobnix:

On Calibre I used the "Save to disk" option, and I created a sub collection of epub, PDF and mobi files.

I then copied said files to a folder on my Android SD Card memory.

I configured the Beta version (file Librera Beta-8.3.24-arm64.apk) to read said folder making sure the .opf options were properly set up.

Librera does create a library with all of the books but:
  • Author and Title: Librera parses both correctly for epub and mobi files but actually swaps this fields por PDF files.
  • Covers: Librera displays them correctly for all files.
  • Series: even though I have series including epub, PDF and mobi files, the series filter will only show the epub files included in any series.
  • Tags: calibre tags for epub and mobi files are parsed on Librera as Genre (which works for me); however, filtering with a Genre will only show epub and mobi files; it doesn't show pdf that have the same tags (from Calibre) as said epub and mobi files. For PDF files (and only PDF files) calibre tags are parsed on Librera as Keywords

All of the above is consistent with what you get for the file info of each individual e-book.

If required, I can share you the files on a cloud so you may look into them.

Awaiting your kind reply,

[INCANUS]

Please attach some PDF file for 1,2,4 cases then I can fix

Thumbs up Calibre Metadata on Librera

I've just got a reply from foobnix with a beta version that addresses and perfectly solves my prior post.

Using the .OPF file that calibre creates for each ebook, this version properly maps all of the relevant metadata, regardless of the ebook file format.

I've tried this version with the files stored directly by calibre (testing for a future cloud sync between devices) and the files created with the "Save to disk" option, with identical results.

I shall take again this opportunity to thank foobnix for his prompt reply and excellent service.

I remain very grateful,

[INCANUS]

I really like the app for it's sorting and organizing capabilities. However, I have two questions about it:

Can it sync/integrate with Calibre (using the metadata.calibre file to search/filter your books) and connect to Calibre wirelessly?

Can you set a default reader app when using the "Remember reading mode > Open With" option so it won't ask which app to use every time you open a book?

Why is it that I can open .docx files with f-droid Librera (8.3.100) on my phone, but not on my e-reader (Boox Nova Pro)? Is it because it installs as 8.3.100 INK on the e-reader?

Red face Single word selection bug

I'm experiencing a bug with single word selections when the floating "Text" popup is open. After tapping the speaker icon, I try to mark the next word, but the page half-autoscrolls backwards from under my pressing finger (direct tap/long press, no dragging, I swear ). Notably, this only happens with short text selections, not whole lines, but it's annoying for foreign-language learners. It happened to me with both EPUB and PDF.

Technically, the tap zones should be disabled by setting them to "Do nothing", and reducing them to 5% screen real estate. I'm in book mode. But, so far nothing helps except switching to 1-tap text selection, and that's not precise enough, even on a large 8'' screen.

Beyond that, Librera is definitely a great find for text-to-speech & general reading on Android, especially PDF (very fast search) and DjVu (displays WinDjView bookmarks/outline, who would've thought it possible!). I have yet to find anything (else) wrong with it... LIT & PDF catalog support would be great

(Librera Pro 8.3.100 - latest from Play store, Android 6)

P.S. Disabling the page scroll animation changes nothing.

Where's the Edit button for posts hiding?

Is it possible to create custom labels so that to be able to mark already read books and books to be read in the future, but that still I have not started to read?
I would like to have those two groups of books in different tabs alongside the one I am reading which are in the recent tab.
