Buying Plants Locally During the Shutdown

Curb-side pick-up. Oh, the ethical turmoil I’ve been in! Should I stay home and shop for food only, or support other local businesses, too? Plus, it’s spring and we gardeners need to buy plants and supplies. I’ll confess that my greatest personal fear (after dying, of course) was that the garden centers would be closed this spring. But we got lucky, I guess – garden centers/nurseries have been deemed essential – presumably because what they sell is needed for both food-growing and upkeep of p...

A solution to support annotations for PDF and syncing tablet and calibre.

For years, there has been no solution to how to sync annotations and highlights with the calibre library, if your primary device for reading ebooks is a tablet (and yes you are totally out of luck if you read PDFs). My usual workflow is Load PDFs in calibre on my Mac. Connect wirelessly using calibre companion (CC) on tablet and transfer the file to tablet. Read and annotate the PDF file using XODO pdf reader. This saves the highlights in the pdf itself. Now the question is to get the PDF fi...

Android - User defined sorts not working properly

I've been using calibre companion for over year and it has been working fine but about a week ago my user defined sorts seem to stop working often. I generally use a user defined sort as my default sorting method for my library and usually when I close the app and then reopen it automatically loads that sort. Now when I either reopen cc or come back to it after leaving it running in the background for awhile it automatically goes to title sort but when i go to the sort menu it says I'm still usi...

iPadOS bug CC drops share link to iBooks

I have been using CC since Apple broke the link to Calibre. I just signed up for a subscription today. I hope the premium version would not have this bug, but it does. The bug: I successfully downloaded 3 EPUBS from Calibre I selected the read option which pops up the apps action list to move the file to an app on the iPad. I selected iBooks and the file moved. The next book with the same action brought the action list of apps and iBooks was no longer there as an app to send the book to. After ...

Page numbers in epub pageList

I have an epub with page numbers defined in pageList in toc.ncx, but the page numbers are not showing up in any reader software that I've tested with (ADE, Calibre, iBooks, FBReader). And navigation by page number uses the reader's generated page numbers, not the supplied numbers. Any ideas? It's possible this feature just isn't supported (https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...#post3474229): Quote: However, AFAIK, I don't know of any epub2 app that actually ...

IPC between plugin and interface

Hi! I need to do a Google login for my plugin. Reading the documentation, I see that I need to launch that in a separate process. However I don't have a way to communicate back information to my plugin (mainly access and refresh tokens). I took a look at how other core plugins do it and it seems to use the IPC utils, but only some predefined messages are handled and it is currently not possible to register an handle for new message types. Is there any way I could make that work? Thanks!

How to not compress jpeg

I'm writing a handbook in photography, of course it will have lots of pictures which need high quality. A draft is now formated in Sigil with HTML and the pictures are in the book. Unfortunately, the pictures had bad quality when I for he first time looked in the book with an ebook reader app. I checked the size of the epub-file which was one fifth of all the pictures together. Is there a setting to prevent Sigil from compressing the pictures? If not, are there any alternatives?

Demanding Moms Don’t Realize They’ve Lost the Culture War

Mom's Demand Action and other Bloomberg anti-2A groups are wasting taxpayer money to further their agendas. U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)-After Americans bought more than 2 million guns last month, the Florida chapter of Moms Demand Action called on Gov. Ron DeSantis to create public service announcements that extol the virtues of safe gun storage. Other Moms chapters are following suit. I have a couple questions about the demanding moms’ demand.
