Time for a new stylus

My Adonit Jot Dash died quite spontaneously, yesterday. So now, I'm looking for its replacement. Apple Pencil (1st Gen, I only have a 2017 Pro) or... something else... I was using the Dash for fine edits on photographs more than anything else, if that helps you to make recommendations? Suggestions please, if you will...

Catalog: Section List Templates

When I went to make a catalog earlier today, I discovered that my template for the section list is no longer being applied. At first I assumed it had been overwritten, but it's the same one I've been using since 2015 (which I verified by checking a backup I had made of my customizations). Nothing else on my system has changed except for Calibre (and probably Windows) updates since my last catalog generation ... which was on Feb 4, 2019 where it came out correctly. It's ONLY the section_list_tem...

How to specify which format to open?

Hello, I have a few books that are both EPUB and MOBI. They are listed on the same line so when I click on them they come up as EPUB which, 90% of the time, is fine but what do I do if I want to open the MOBI format of a book? Attached Thumbnails

Merman for Alexander Henry Fabrics

I was thrilled to be asked to make a merman to promote the Sirenas Del Mar mer-creature contest, sponsored by Alexander Henry Fabrics and Treasures of the Gypsy. Those links will take you to sites with info about the contest. Of course I can never make just one so I’ve been working on four. One of these fellows will make his debut at the Alexander Henry Fabrics Quilt Market booth in Kansas City! The inspiration for this mer-fellow is Japanese samurai. First fellow- He has a Japanese landscape ...

Spiritual Schaff, Philip: The Holy Bible American Standard Version. v1. May 11, 2019

This is the American Standard Version of the Bible, completed in 1901. There are at least a couple other editions of this in the Mobileread library, so here is a quick summary of what this one offers: Footnotes. I've found no other ebook anywhere whether free or for sale that includes the original translators' notes. Original translators' prefaces (Old and New Testament). Multilevel (book, chapter) navigation that doesn't rely on a nested NCX. I also put a few dozen hours into proofreading an...

Weekend Reading

Happy Mother’s Day weekend! I finally feel recovered from my long journey home, jet lag always hits me on the way back and it takes me about 3 days to feel normal again. I’m starting a porch makeover project today then will be relaxing tomorrow after a nice brunch with my family. I’ve been traveling a lot in the last few months (Australia, Hawaii, Portugal) and I confess I’m a bit weary. I love it of course but I’m very happy to be spending the next few months at home. I’m working on building a ...

Quantum Physics for Babies and Rocket Science for Babies

Quantum Physics for Babies and Rocket Science for Babies are the kind of board books you’d find on a toddler’s shelf. They have stiff, tear-proof cardboard pages, simple illustrations, and minimal text. But they actually explain the subjects on a (very) high level. The author, Chris Ferrie, is a physicist and Senior Lecturer for Quantum Software and Information at the University of Technology Sydney. I finally learned why quantum physics is called quantum physics! And even though I know how a w...

font size changing when converting

When I use calibre's epub to azw3 conversion on the downloaded epub for this book: https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/42664 it uses things like "font-size: 1.29167em;" in the CSS. Whereas for this book https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/42259 it uses the usual "font-size: 1em;". In the conversion settings under Look & Feel I have Disable font size rescaling unchecked. What is in the first book that's making it use the "weird" font size?

CALIBRE EDIT ISSUE

I've been using Calibre for several years, but recently something has changed with the "edit" process. In the past, I would simply view my epub in Calibre, and if I found typos or needed to add punctuation, I simply clicked on the Edit Book icon on the top tool bar, and it opened the page I was on in HTML for editing. Easy peasy. Now, when I do the same thing as always, I'm getting a different screen with instructions at the top to "Double click a file in the left panel to start editing it." ...

Feature request, paged browsing

I've never warmed up to the new Content server, but if there's one thing I find really painful, it's using it to browse.scroll a large library. Paged browsing would make much more sense, (where the content is divided into distinctly numbered pages.) If you really wanted to keep the infinite scrolling, it should load the next bach automatically when you get to the bottom... But paged scrolling makes it possible to stop and return where you left off, and feels much less clunky.

Weekend Cooking: Icing on the Cake by Tessa Huff

Sometimes there's a baking cookbook that just calls to you. Tessa Huff's Icing on the Cake (Abrams, April 2) is just such a book. Thanks to my participation in the Abrams Dinner Party, I received a copy of this inspiring book for review. This is a book I plan to bake my way through. Huff has two goals for Icing on the Cake. First is, of course, providing a variety of incredibly delicious recipes that are easy to bake at home. Second, is to learn a few dozen decorating techniques so that everyda...

Page Refresh differences between Kindle Paperwhite and Kobo Clara HD?

I tried the Kobo H20 years ago and there's ghosting after around 5 page turns. Heard Kindles is much better in this area due to lack of full Regal waveform support on the Kobo. It seems newer eReaders are known to refresh after every chapter nowadays but unsure about ghosting. 1. For those who tried both Kindle Paperwhite 4 and Kobo Clara HD, how many page turns(all text) before ghosting appears? 2. Did Kobo start using full Regal waveform on Clara HD or it's still the same as their 2015 de...

Democrats – Trying To Separate You From Your Firearms Since 1934

Democrats – Trying To Separate You From Your Firearms Since 1934 USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Before there was an NRA/ILA to fight to protect our rights; back when the concept that owning a gun to protect yourself was part of just being an American and the 2nd Amendment was never a question, the Democrats wove into their DNA the desire to disarm America. While we know the National Firearms Act as a law to disarm criminals from having machine guns the original intent, and the original version pushed...

Why Netflix Doesn’t Care If You Share Your Account

Proxima Studio/Shutterstock    With Netflix’s yearly price hikes and severe lack of sitcoms, account sharing can look a lot more appealing than a monthly subscription fee. But how does Netflix feel about account sharing, and why hasn’t the company stopped the practice? Everybody Shares a Netflix Account When we say “account sharing,” we aren’t talking about sharing an account with your family.

Connecting Kobo ClaraHD to intranet

I need to be able to connect my ClaraHD to intranet (rather than internet). Normally, when I try to do it, I get the message: "Unable to join ...."

It kind of works but is not reliable :( I tried this: https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...196&styleid=17 but it didn't make any difference...:blink: There is also a suggestion of for...
