Jacket CSS not working?

Hi everyone. I hope I am posting in the correct forum. Having upgraded my Calibre to 4.16 on my Mac, I have realised that the settings I have in my css file (calibre>Show Package Contents>Resources>resources>jacket) are no longer being applied. I used to have a blue background on which the title and series name of the book were added in white text. Now, everything is black text on white background. Also, when in the Comments I had coloured text, the coloured text would appear in the generat...

top margin padding in Apple Books

I am new to making ebooks, but I have to do a lot, about 60, which is a backlist for a small press publisher. This must be an old question, but the epub file I've made is formatted with large top margins - it's the style of the book, which is very short stories that begin part way down each page. Its format looks great on a kobo, or on kindle previewer, or calibre ereader, etc. With margin-top set to 180px; in the style sheet. However, when it goes into Apple Books on an ipad the top margins ...

Kobo Forma Calibre Plug-Ins

I am moving from an Oasis 2 to a Forma and will be using Calibre to load Amazon purchased books on the Forma. I viewed the Plug-In Index and was completely overwhelmed by the amount of content. What are the Kobo Forma specific Plug-Ins that you recommend I add to Calibre? I assume some of these Plug-Ins may have overlapping functions. If true which ones are preferred? Thanks, Joe

Lemon Basil Smash + Herb Infused Cocktails

I love herb infused cocktails. As I write this post the Thursday evening before Memorial Day Weekend, I am sipping this delicious Lemon Basil Smash cocktail concoction! A local restaurant in my town makes a rosemary infused grapefruit cocktail that I love, and I can’t turn down a mint julep! Any cocktail that mixes citrus with fresh herbs is a favorite, especially in summer! There’s something about sipping a herb infused cocktail right before a barbeque that just sets the mood as a prelude to a ...

Disruption and free access to MITSloan Management Review

A former colleague of mine recently mentioned that her current employer, MITSloan Management Review (MMR), was offering a free 60-day pass to their entire site. I've read a number of articles since then and wanted to pass that link along to you as well. More importantly, I also discovered that the MMR has assembled a collection of very timely articles about disruption that they're also offering as a free downloadable PDF (courtesy of Deloitte). If you click here you'll be asked to give your name...

Brownells BRN-180s – The Pistol Configuration Application (Part 3 of 3)

Brownells BRN-180S – The Pistol Configuration Performance U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Parts 1 and 2 of the Brownells BNR-180s evaluation uttered a likeness to oatmeal chocolate chip cookies in all their splendor.  We gratuitously overindulged on those warm little gems, and I can state that with no shame.  Today you find out if I suffered a bellyache or not. Brownells BRN-180s I believed all along the BRN-180s would be a great pistol option, but it’s imperative that I approach each project like...

Kindle owners should have a Kobo

I've been reading about some wanting night mode and the book cover to the the lock screen image. What I want to know is why do Kindle owners want features they can already have with Kobo and can easily get by getting a Kobo yet they stick with a Kindle? Seems silly to me to have a Kindle that doesn't do what they want when they can get a Kobo that does do what they want.

Declare victory with a morale-boosting garden — like our grandparents did

Forced to shelter in place, most of us are coming down with a bad case of cabin fever. Instead of worrying about the future and whether that scratchy throat you woke up with this morning is something serious, plant a Victory Garden. During World War II, those on the home front were dealing with food shortages and rationing, as well as fear and anxiety. George Washington Carver promoted the idea of what he called Victory Gardens, urging people to grow their own food, mostly as a way of supplement...

Libra Replacement Device Has Dead Pixel?

So, I finally received a replacement Libra after four weeks from sending in my original one (bezel was pulling away from the screen).

I noticed it when reading at night last night. It doesn't show when the light is off either. Is there anyway to fix this without going through the replacement process again?
