    Kobo Touch Extended: replace language?

    What does the option "replace content language code" do? By what does it replace the content language code?

    I'm asking because I suddenly had a book in which the Kobo reader incorrectly identified the language as Dutch (the book was in English), so I had a hard time using the dictionary.

    I'm wondering if a recent change in the plugin may have caused this for the most recent books I've loaded onto the device, and if checking this option might remedy it.

    If not, are there other ways to make sure the reader correctly identifies the language? (Other than by diving into the css or the code of the epub itself, which I'm not familiar with and I'd rather not do on a book by book basis.)

    Multiple English Spelling Dictionaries

    Hi

    The new spelling check facility is great - thanks to Kovid. Does anyone know if there a way of enabling 2 English dictionaries simultaneously so eg US and British English are let through the check? Sorry if I have missed an obvious answer.

    Thanks for any replies

     
    Sidelight on focus

    If you are spell checking and double click, you can get the focus on the word by clicking on the edge of the editing window. This does not work for F/R, but it does work on the spell check. Useful for me when I want to capitalize when something is found.

    Ok kids, time for the weekly roundup of what we've covered this week:

    Hi everyone

    I am new to Mobileread.
    I am impressed with the huge number of titles available.

    Upload books to reader on next connect

    I can't seem to find this option, though it seems so logical to do. Maybe it isn't there or it is there and I can't find it.

    Is there an option to mark a book as 'send to device' and that it will do so the next time I will connect my reader to my computer?

    And I don't mean manually, I know I can give a book a label or something, create a virtual library and multiupload that virtual library to my device by selecting them all and use the command.

    It would be so nice to create a waitinglist for that. Does anyone know of a way or plugin for that? Or should this be a feature request.

     
    Big Kobo AND Amazon Sale

    I just noticed that Kobo is having a weekend (through April 21) sale, with up to 70% off (http://www.kobo.com/weekendsale?style=onestore).

    The sale is on various genres:
    "Riveting Fiction"
    "Electrifying Mysteries"
    "Hot Romance"
    "Fantastic Non-Fiction"
    "Irresistible Kids and Teen Titles"
    "Top Inspirational Titles"
    There are a huge number of titles in non-fiction, the only category that I checked. Maybe it's the same with the rest of the categories.

    If you're like me, however, you much prefer the Kindle format, for several reasons. Well, I did a spot check of Amazon's prices on three non-fiction books and they match Kobo's prices! Maybe that's the way that it is with the rest of the books.

    Post limitations

    Don't know if it is supported on the software used here, but on other sites I've visited they have a 2 min delay Before you can make Another posting. That would reduce the repeated postings that sometimes shows up when the board isn't responding instantly to a new poster. Besides, when there are spam attacks it might keep down the frequency.

    Just something to Think about.

     
    Adding a cover: save vs. convert

    I wanted to update an EPUB file by adding a cover (a file on the local machine) and by updating the EPUB's description. I made those changes in calibre's metadata editor. The book then appeared in calibre's library with the new cover. I saved the EPUB to disk.

    But I found that while I now had an updated description, the newly saved file did not have a cover. Yet the was book displayed in the calibre library with the new cover.

    Then I thought I should try conversion (not just 'save to disk'). That did insert the cover page -- and now I had a different book. The CSS files had been altered with many new selectors added, elements within the XHTML body text files had new styles assigned, a new style sheet had been created and attached to all files, and in some cases styles now had line-height settings that differed from what they'd been before. I estimated that it might take 2 hours to fix all of those changes, even with batch search/replace (there'd be so many changes that I would probably need to write a script for that task). For now I will have to find some other way to add this cover.

    Unless: Is there a way to tell calibre, when it does a conversion: leave all CSS intact -- no changes?
