Can I completely disable nav ball and floating toolbar in V2.3?

Can anyone tell me whether it's possible to completely disable the navigation ball and the floating toolbar in V2.3 (preferably specifically on the Nova Pro)? I don't mean minimize them: I mean turn them off so they're not visible at all. I'm loathe to upgrade to V2.3 because I don't want to end up with (even minimized) widgets distracting me from the wonderfully pure reading experience which I currently enjoy so much! Many thanks in advance, Mike

Golriz Ghahraman: 'I feel such sorrow when I imagine my parents' fate'

The Iranian-born New Zealand MP describes a ‘central heartbreak’ of being a migrant child in this exclusive extract from her book Know Your PlaceWhat I noticed and still find painful is that my dad lost his keen, well-known sense of humour. In Iran, he was known as the funny one in his circle. He would do hilarious impersonations of his self-important Dervish uncle for his cousins during late-night sessions at our house. I remember them all doubling over in laughter. He came up with witty nickna...

updating library

I noticed that as my library has grown in size (the db file is 65mb) that when I try to import a list to update tags, etc. the process takes a loooong time, when I look at the library using Explorer I see that a db journal is being used to update each book. Is this normal? It seems that instead of updating the .db file it is updating each book's .opf file. Regarding the large .db file, I am trying to get all the info right for the library before splitting it up to smaller libraries. Is there...

Download additional metadata fields

I want to use Calibre to track physical books. The built in metadata download does a fine job of finding the books but it misses some of the fields I'd like to have such as length.

How do I split a format to a new book record?

While merging some duplicate book records of different formats together, I goofed up and merged the wrong ones. I was able to split them by saving the epub to disk and re-adding it to the library. For future reference, is there a better way to do this that I missed? :thanks:

Why does conversion have a 5px margin by default?

I didn't realize until recently, after having read a few converted books on my Kindle Oasis, that Calibre was adding a tiny margin around all edges, and when I reconverted some books without it, I realized that the margin that I assumed was set by Kindle firmware was in fact added, and now I much prefer reading on my Kindle!

Automotif CLXVII...

1969 Chevy Camaro RS/Z28 parked out in front of the Safeway at 56th Street & Illinois Avenue. My headcanon says the original owner popped for the dealer-installed crossram dual-4bbl intake setup, but I didn't wait around for the driver to get back to see if they'd pop the hood. It motored off while I was coming back out of the store with my Ruffles and French onion dip.It's days like this I'm glad I bother to drag a real camera around with me. . [Author: Tam]

Change default folder for screenshot

Hi, I am using an Inkpad X (that, if I understand well, has almost the same software that the Inkpad 3) and I would like to change the default folder of the screenshot to a folder in "Dropbox Pocketbook" in order to direclty synchronise the screenshot with my dropbox account. I tried to use "ln -s" to replace the screen folder to a symbolic link in order to accomplish my goal, but it seems that I doesn't have the authorisation for that (even in root in my manjaro linux). Any advice? Thanks ...

"[W]hen things get real — really murderous, really tragic, really violent or aggressive — my white, liberal, educated friends already know what to do. What they do is read."

"And talk about their reading. What they do is listen. And talk about how they listened. What they do is never enough. This isn’t the time to circle up with other white people and discuss black pain in the abstract; it’s the time to acknowledge and examine the pain they’ve personally caused. Black people live and die every day under the burdens of a racism more insidious than the current virus that’s also disproportionately killing us. And yet white people tend to take a slow route to meaningful...
