New version reader skips pages

I have used Calibre exclusively (other than my Kindle books) for many years. I never bothered to update it. It never gave me one second worth of trouble. I recently had a computer crash and downloaded the software for my new one which gave me the most up to date version which the entire layout has changed for. Now every single book I read.. usually I read Epub but it happens regardless of format.. skips a page almost every single time I turn the page. At least 2 out of 3 turns. It does this whet...

Bugs

I've notice two bugs in the Viewer. I'm not sure when they were introduced, but I just updated to 5.16 64Bits, on Windows 10 x64 20H2. 1) Viewer preferences > Keyboard shortcuts > Click on shortcut and nothing happens (except for the search bar disappearing). 2) With the the lateral tool bar open, hovering at the auto-scroll button gives the wrong tooltip "Read the text of the book aloud". If you click it, then hovering again gives "Turn off auto-scrolling", and on the next click "Turn on auto...

Table of Contents question

Is it possible to have this Sigil point to the same page more than one time in the table of contents? For example: Table of Contents ABC Listing: A B C Listing by topic: C A B So in other words if I put xhtml pages A, B and C under heading ABC Listing. Can I then put them under Listing by topic but in a different order? I know I can copy the pages and call them a new name but then if I have to change something on page A I would have to do it in more than one location. If I can some...

Sigil 1.5.1 not executing on macOS 10.15.7

I've been using Sigil 1.3.0 on macOS Catalina for some time now without any problems and still can. Thinking of starting a new project using the latest stable Sigil, I downloaded 1.5.1, moved it to the Desktop, and used Terminal.app (as per the instructions changing only the package name in Terminal to Sigil.app-1.5.1-Mac.txz) to create an executable. No problems were indicated in Terminal, so I renamed the resulting app to Sigil 1-5-1.app (I've kept older Sigil versions with this convention i...

Suggest me a book that is similar to Victor the Assassin

I am looking for a Thriller/Action/Espionage/ book that is similar to Victor the Assassin. Specifically, what I am looking for is an independent character who isn't bound to any government, country or agency. They should be like Victor. An antihero? I won't really call Victor and antihero but he acts in a way where he put himself first and therefore commits some - well - evil(?) maybe morally incorrect things. Otherwise I would be also interested in a book like Bourne: a character that is "hun...

David Thomson talks about which movie directors made ‘History’ – and who got left out

David Thomson, author of “A Biographical Dictionary of Film,” is perhaps the most celebrated living film historian. And at age 80, he is still exploring and examining the cinematic landscape from every angle. In his new book, “A Light in the Dark: A History of Movie Directors,” he features chapters on Orson Welles, Howard Hawks and Alfred Hitchcock, bringing his personal tastes and sensibility to each of their careers. But he goes well beyond those obvious choices. In his chapter on Jean-Lu...

Hollywood on Hollywood: will the Academy “Mank” up for Citizen Kane snub?

It is no secret that movies about Hollywood come with built-in Oscar buzz. The trend is nearly as old as the Academy Awards itself. MGM’s musical comedy Hollywood Revue started the tradition with a best picture nomination (or “Outstanding Picture” as it was then called) at the second annual Oscar ceremony in 1930, and A Star is Born and Sunset Boulevard followed suit in 1938 and 1951, respectively. More recently, The Artist (2011) and Birdman (2014) took home the award for best picture—and of co...
