Do Fonts Work On The New Booxes?

I played around for a while with the T68, but ultimately found that it was impossible to use because if you selected any font other than the default, bold and italic text wouldn't display because you had to select Regular/Bold/Italic subsets of fonts as separate fonts. Do the newer models of Boox reader fix this problem?

Aura E2 book organization woes on Kobo Aura

I just got my mother a Kobo Aura, thinking it might be a decent upgrade from her old Sony PRS-350. The Sony is not working well any more, though it might just need a new battery. Anyhow, what I (and she) liked about the Sony is that when copying books over from Calibre, it brought information along with. It automatically created collections for different genres and for different series. It's not looking like the Aura does this. I'm hoping though that I've just missed something and there's a...

Picking up my kitty from evil government quarantine

Last night I got a message saying work was cancelled today and tomorrow. Or rather I only need to work the last four hours of each 12 hour shift.... and today marks our one month back in China which means my wife and I can go get our cat out of jail! For a couple weeks anytime I felt a bump under the blanket I would assume it was her. Really she has suffered the ultimate betrayal and being an overly sentimental tree-hugger didn't help me feel any less sensitive to this. We dragged her across th...

What’s Up with This Weird Google Maps Spam?

Some users are reporting that they’re getting some bizarre spammy messages on Google Maps of all places. The pop-ups notify the users that they’ve won something, then request their location. What the hell? Threads have been showing up on reddit with users asking the same question we’re all wondering right now: what is this? For one, why would Maps need to request a user’s location when the bulk of its job is knowing where you are at any given time. It’s so weird. Some users are speculating it h...

12 Design Lessons from Kettle’s Yard in Cambridge

My favorite places to visit when traveling are biographical museums, the original homes or workplaces of architects, artists, or writers. The spaces are personal, the experience is intimate, and I leave feeling as though the subject is a close friend. Perhaps the most intimate of them all is Kettle’s Yard in Cambridge, England. That’s because Kettle’s Yard is remarkably unchanged since owners Jim and Helen Ede left in 1973. “One of [England’s] most intimate and spellbinding museums, the collect...

Conversation Piece: Tokujin Yoshioka’s Prism Chair

Designer Tokujin Yoshioka takes the notion of negative space to the extreme with the ethereal, well-nigh invisible, Prism Chair for Glas Italia. First shown at Milan in 2014, Prism is sublimely simple. Seven sheets of thick, highly transparent pieces of glass come together to make the most elemental form of a chair. However, the transparency that is the Prism Chair’s calling card is undercut—and enhanced—via the chamfered edges of the individual glass sheets. Therein lies the prismatic phenom...

onenote import

Hi It would be fantastic if you could export the notes created in boox note/max2 to open them in Onenote AS INK. So that we can further edit them in onenote if needed or search them. I noticed that when you backup the notes you get sqlite databases with all the stroke and shapes information so it seems it should be doable to convert this to onenote. I've been doing some search and found the api references: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/off...oper-reference a python implementation: https...
