Disable keyboard shortcuts in Kindle Previewer

I uploaded the latest update to the Kindle Previewer but its shortcut for opening (Ctrl+K) interferes with an important shortcut in InDesign. I cannot find how to disable it in "Preferences" Any ideas? Or is this just a bug?

Quaderno A4 vs Boox Note Air for academic papers

Hi everyone, I am looking for a device to read academic papers, in order to avoid printing tons of documents, since I suffer from eye strain for reading at my laptop. I'm not sure whether to buy a Boox Note Air, or a Quaderno A4. I'm wondering if the 10.3" display of the Air is enough to read comfortably papers all day, especially two-columns ones. On the other hand, Quaderno A4 is 13.3" and costs about the same, but it's less versatile. In particular, I could use Air to look for articles, an...

Before the Boulder massacre, multiple mass shootings in Colorado have led to only modest changes in its gun laws

A Vote for Our Lives event in Littleton, Colorado, on April 19, 2018. Joe Amon/The Denver Post via Getty Images Colorado lawmakers are considering new guns laws after a shooter killed 10 at a Boulder supermarket.

Shooting Steel at 18in With nP Technology Frangible Ammo ~VIDEO

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- As someone who shoots exclusively outdoors and at inanimate objects, I never really saw the appeal of frangible ammo like that from nP Technology. Don’t get me wrong, I thought the idea was great for air marshalls who need to know for sure that their rounds aren’t going to puncture the fuselage and cause a catastrophic loss of pressure in the cabin of an aircraft. But for me personally, it was expensive and I to be honest, pretty pointless. At least that’s what I thoug...

Expect a long wait if you opt to use the mail-in route for and Apple trade-in

Its been over two weeks now since I called Apple to initiate a trade-in of my iPad Pro 9.7. I asked if I could take it to a nearby Apple Store location and was told no because of COVID-19 restrictions in place at their retail stores in my area. They directed me to their mail-in partner, Phobio. Phobio is the pokiest company I’ve ever dealt with. It took them a week to get me a mail-in kit in which to send them my iPad Pro 9.7. I dropped the same off at a FedEx facility that same day. A week late...
