Bug: Copying Error (OleSetClipboard)

Platform: Windows 10 1809 (believe this is a Windows-only bug) Sigil Version: 0.9.10 Seems like a Qt bug, might be related to this bug (supposedly fixed in Qt 5.12.0?): https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-27097 I did a search for "OleSetClipboard: Failed to set mime data", and not many results pop up in Google (~130). Steps to Reproduce I don't have a reliable test case, but I was copying/pasting between Google Docs (Chrome) + Microsoft Word 2016 + and Sigil. Every so often, pressing Ctrl+C in...

Flames by Robbie Arnott

Australian literature is the best. Over Christmas I’ve indulged in reading the literature for adults I can’t easily justify reading during the year (but read anyway) when I am focusing on YA and children’s lit for work – and also pleasure. I’ve been reading a mix of Australian and international fiction. I have to say … Continue reading Flames by Robbie Arnott The post Flames by Robbie Arnott appeared first on The Boomerang Books Blog.

Any way to delete all books of a certain file type?

I used to have a Paperwhite as well as my Kobo readers so when I uploaded my books to the Paperwhite I had it automatically convert to mobi. I have since sold my Paperwhite and no longer need the mobi file types of all of my books. Is there any easy way to delete all mobi files all at once (without deleting the other file types, of course)

Once Upon a River ~ Diane Setterfield

I've had to delve a long way back in my reading journal to find out when I read Diane Setterfield's first novel The Thirteenth Tale. August 2006, the scribbles here would have been a mere five months in existence and now look...we're heading for teenage-dom and our thirteenth year this March. I always enjoy a look back over books read, The Thirteenth Tale preceded by The Emigrants by Vilhelm Moburg, The Girl From the Chartreuse by Pierre Peju and The Barracks by John McGahern, and followed by Ly...

Indies on Amazon Kindle Only

Why do so many independent authors choose to lock their eBooks into the Amazon Kindle ecosystem? With Amazon recently further locking down Amazon Kindle eBooks, I've been looking into other eBook stores. Many of the eBooks I've read are independently published and either solely available on Amazon Kindle, or only available on Amazon Kindle and Apple Books. Nothing on Google Play Books, Kobo, or independent eBook shops. It makes it difficult to avoid Amazon Kindle or leave the Amazon Kindle ec...

touch lux 2 no screen files access

Hello. I unfortunately broke the screen of my device. Pocketbook is not offering any replacement solution, nor any mean of access to my files. I don't feel like replacing the screen myself, it seems risky to buy a part and try and fix it. It's also an opportunity to buy something new I guess. I was wondering if there was any software capable of forcing the "PC link" mode to access my files since it's not the device default behavior. Or to straight up access the storage from a PC. I looked around...

Who Are the Real Extremists with Your God Given Rights?

Opinion Magazine capacity would be set at five rounds, which would be the lowest standard in the nation, and there is no grandfather clause. Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- NRA is often vilified by the gun-ban community and its supporters in the mainstream, legacy media as an “extremist” organization because of its steadfast defense of our Right to Keep and Bear Arms [in keeping with the Constitution of the United States]. A simple look into the anti-gun agenda, however, will show that propon...

How I Make Maps

The three books I have written are all maps. They provide an overview of the terrain and provide guidance on how you might find your way. In Chapter 5 of Eat Their Lunch, I reference my friend, Ken Wilber, perhaps the greatest map-maker of all time, as his Integral Theory includes more terrain than any other map, and it is sometimes referred to as a Theory of Everything. The first time I met Ken, I asked him to advise me on map-making, and he looked at my work and helped ensure I had enough cate...

koreader on KOA2, which filemanager start?

I finally got around to putting koreader on my Oasis 2. On my Voyage, all the filemanager start choices seemed about the same (as near as I can recall). On my KOA2, the top entry resulted in the start message at the bottom of the screen and the device remained unresponsive for quite some time and I had to reboot via power button. Which filemanager start works with the KOA2? koreader koreader-kindle-arm-kindle5-linux-gnueabi-v2015.11-1800-g0924b57_2018-07-29.zip

Max Kommerell (1902-1944) war Literaturwissenschaftler und Dichter. Dieses eBuch basiert auf dem Band Gedichte, Gespräche, Übertragungen, der 1973 im Walter-Verlag Olten und Freiburg erschien. Es enthält alle zu Kommerells Lebzeiten erschienenen Gedichte sowie Gedichte aus dem Nachlaß.

Questions about Calibre not reading/converting DJVU, CBR, CHM, RAR files
