Mystery and Crime Morrison, Arthur: Adventures of Martin Hewitt. v1. 20 Apr 2019

The third series of Martin Hewitt stories. Text is the 1896 book version, thoroughly proofed. Includes pictures. The only other ebook version of this work I have found has many OCR errors and, worse, uses a shortened, Americanized edit of the "Flitterbat Lancers" (possibly taken from Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, which published the story in the 1950s.) Anyone is of course welcome to incorporate this text into the existing "omnibus" ebooks. Attached ...

and 3 more tiny worlds

These 3 are designs that rely heavily on the cup. The snow scene can’t be made on a flower cup, the barn needs a special look- kind of country?-, and the night tiny world needs a dark cup. Searching for just the right cup is so much fun.

Windows 10’s “Sets” App Tabs Are “No More”

Mega Pixel/Shutterstock Sets was going to bring tabs to File Explorer and other Windows applications. An early version of Sets once appeared in Windows Insider builds, but Microsoft pulled it. Now, according to Microsoft’s Rich Turner on Twitter, Sets is “no more.” We were really looking forward to Sets, as we’ve always wanted tabs in the File Explorer as well as console windows like the Command Prompt, PowerShell, and even Linux Bash shells on Windows. Tabs in other applications like Note...

Note taking with time stamped audio?

Greetings, I use OneNote to take notes during class and I love the fact that this allows me to take timestamped audio recordings of the lecture. Do any of the Onyx systems/apps allow for this? I would also like to the capacity to open the notes on a PC, or at least save the audio and then import that into OneNote. It is my general understanding that OneNote on the Onyx devices tends to lag. I would think this may interfere with the time syncing. Thanks for any assistance!

How to Modify @font-face on Conversion?

Is there a way to modify the @font-face in CSS files that already exist in a given book so that it is modified during conversion? For example, I want to convert: @font-face { font-family: Hlv } to @font-face { font-family: Helvetica } during conversion so that it will reference the fonts correctly using the correct name of the font. Using style transformation, transformation doesn't affect font-family under @font-face in a given CSS file, but it will affect the rest of the referen...

Six on Saturday 20th April – Tulips

As the tulips are coming into their own this week I thought I would have a tulip special for Six on Saturday.

Blank screen when reading outside

Last year I bought a Pocketbook Touch HD2 and overall I like the reader. There is one thing though I really don't like and that's the fact that when reading outside at moderate temperatures, the screen at some point turns white. I have to cool down the reader and after a while I can continue reading. It happens with direct and indirect sunlight on the screen. Today, a nice day with temps of 24 degrees, it happened twice. Is this normal behavior? Does anyone recognize this?

MooInk and MooInk Plus

I have created a MooInk page in our wiki. The page contains 2 models. This was featured on the E Ink web site (https://www.eink.com/reading-writing...plication&id=1) so I decided to create a page for our Chinese friends. The page was created using Google translation. I have no idea how well this works or if it works with English text. It does have special Chinese features such as changing the flow direction for text. The Plus version has actual keys as well as a touch screen and both feature SD ...

Assistance with Kindle Oasis 2, KFX, and margins.

Hi all, Hope you're well. Just looking for some thoughts on margins and typesetting on the Kindle Oasis 2 (2017). Specifically, if you look at the images attached, you'll find three consecutive pages of a book; you will note that the "cut off" margin for page differs on the three. This seems to be common in a lot of books I'm reading on the Oasis, and it's quite annoying. I don't recall experiencing the problem on my Kobo; whatever I put on it, seemed to format identically. Any thoughts on what...

Pivoting to prose, poet Ross Gay shares laughter, kindness among strangers and other hard-won ‘Delights’

“One day last July, feeling delighted and compelled to both wonder about and share that delight, I decided it might feel nice, even useful, to write a daily essay about something delightful,” writes poet Ross Gay at the beginning of "The Book of Delights." The result of a yearlong journal, the book compiles 102 curious, idiosyncratic short essays that journey through gardens, classrooms, restaurants and airports, chronicling daily delights along the way.

Stylish Planner Inspired Notebooks

I have been on pintrest and seen quite a few neat ideas for planners but the ones that stood out the most were what looked like “designer princess” fashion planners. Then I came up with the idea of using some of those elements in a notebook cover. Instantly I realized this might require a bit more thought then usual and a lot of creativity. While some of these fashion designs on the covers do not look possibly in real life i still love it! The colorful one is a show from a fairy form known as “B...

What is "floating punctuation"?

Python 2 to Python 3, Polyglot & Plugins

Kovid, For future planning purposes only, by what month/year will plugin developers need to have changed their Python 2 code to use "...\src\polyglot"? When do you expect polyglot to become stable enough that plugin developers can begin using it and hence begin completely re-testing their plugins? I have 15 plugins, so it is not something that can be done quickly and easily. Thanks. DaltonST
