How can I downgrade Likebook Mars to an earlier firmware?

I have the latest firmware v3.2.0-2020031218, but it seems that one of my reading apps does not work well with it. I was wondering if there's a page with previous firmwares to download and an option to downgrade.

In keeping with tradition the scribbles has rest over Easter, a throwback to my childhood when playing out on Good Friday and Sundays was definitely not allowed. It seems strange to think that we are ALL coping with the same situation this year, staying at home, flattening the curve, social distancing and many of us missing time with family and friends. But by doing it we know we are winning for Team World and getting to the other side, wherever we are. Nature has been very kind to us here in ...

Troubleshooting Calibre's Search & Replace

I use calibre's search & replace feature to enable ligatures in the book (fi, fl) and they work great, but sometimes, within a book there are some fi's and fl's that are not replaced by their ligature glyph, as if calibre skipped over them. What's wrong here? I'm using calibre 3.48 (last version supported by my mac) and convert to azw3 and I use the "hyphenate this" plugin.

Calibre 4 for Windows 7 seems fine, why front page says no?

Calibre 4 for Windows 7 seems fine, why front page says no? I've been updating version to version and never noticed that the front page says Calibre 4 is for Windows 8 and 10, but to use Calibre 3 for Windows 7. Why, when Celibre 4 works fine on Windows 7? Thanks for any insight ( I could not find any thread explaining this when searching here, so if someone knows of an existing thread, or a way to find it, please share - thanks ). .

Fast way to move between neoreader and other apps

I read comics on a Nova Pro in Neoreader in French. I have a stardict dictionary that Onyx Dict cannot open. Hoever, Goldendict can open it. So I use the navigation ball to change to goldendict, but it takes 3 taps to get to goldendict. It's slow. Also I cannot use the navigation ball to change back directly from goldendict to neoreader without going via the library. For some reason neoreader does not appear in the last used apps button in the navigation ball. Even if I could, it would still ta...

"Can't Launch Reader App!" message with Android Calibre Companion

I'm getting a "Can't Launch Reader App!" message with Android Calibre Companion on my Samsung phone. I have tried restarting the phone, clearing the default reader app and re-selecting Moon+ Reader Pro, uninstalling and re-installing Moon+, all to no avail.

9 Simple, Timeless Light Fixtures from Claxy

For quality, well-designed light fixtures, there’s Claxy, a lighting outfit with a wide array of fixtures available online. Each fixture has Claxy’s small team of four designers and eight engineers behind it, plus the company’s ethos of quality at an approachable price point. (It’s no coincidence, they say, that “Claxy” sounds like “classy.”) We particularly like the offerings in the company’s new lighting collection, launched just a few months ago, with fixtures in brass finishes. While a well-...

Library File Structure for Books Exported to eBook Device

Hello, The file structure for books on my Windows PC using Calibre 4.13 has a separate folder for each book containing the book itself and a metadata.opf file. When sending books to an attached eBook reader (Android 6.01 OS) all book files are placed into one folder and all metadata is stored in one file (metadata.calibre) in the device root. Is this the default configuration for file storage? Some Android eBook applications appear to be expecting separate metadata.opf files per book and a ...

ebook reader for Win: dictionary (lookup) window to be normal window

Hi. I assume that the most convenient way to read books with dictionary is when the book is on top of the screen, and lookup window is below. I would say the standard top-to-bottom windows alignment in Windows should do fine. The problem is that the lookup window when detached is on top of the ereader (it's called modal windows, if I'm not mistaken). Is there any way to do that?

I have recently installed koreader on a Forma. When trying to lookup a word or reflow a page in a .pdf I get the error message "No OCR results or no language data..." I did install the tesseract data files, but see the same error. Is it possible that the document's language setting affects this? In Book Information Language is N/A. Can I override it somewhere?

The closest town is 40 miles away and the pay for teachers is abysmal.This year, the district’s staffing has hit a critical low: Class size will have to be huge, and there’s limited money for aides who might help with the teaching load, which will further discourage teacher applications. The school board considers ac...

Help choosing a cover

Hi there, I've finished my third crime novel and made a cover for it. Well... several covers actually, due to comments of family members :). Now I'm facing the problem that I've got to make a choice at some point. I hope you can help me out by entering your favorite. Even though this book stands alone, I'd like to maintain a cover in style to the first two. I've made a poll with Google form. It's Dutch, but the text is not really necessary.

Add fonts to Calibre epub

I'm having trouble with embedding fonts in Calibre. The conversion from docx to epub is no problem. Everything looks fine in the Calibre viewer, even the fonts. But I only get to see the choosen fonts in the Calibre viewer. Not in Adobe Digital Editions, not in the e-reader on my iPhone. It doesn't matter whether or not I choose to embed the fonts I used in my docx or not. Nor does it seem to help if I install the fonts when setting up the conversion in Calibre. So I decided to see what I c...
