      I agree .. not quite in every way, but in most ways taking Stanza as an example will give a great result. But too general to waste a vote on ;-(

        Other apps have tried, but the Stanza approach of a very thin line right at the bottom is best. I'm surprised how much I miss it .. and it looks as though it should be relatively easy to implement.

          Bookmarking - ideally highlighting a section of text - would be very useful and doesn't seem too hard. Bluefire remembers bookmarks if a book is deleted and reloaded. I like that, although I hope the notes get backed up and there should be a way to delete all notes for a book quickly. A gesture to navigate to the next note would be neat (ideally via a set of actions that can be bound to gestures a la Atomic Reader, although I guess that's a separate feature).

                A clarification: MegaReader v2.6 adds support for HTML formatting within EPUB files, but it still does not support CSS formatting. CSS is a bit more complicated and I need to weigh how I can best support it without sacrificing the customizability of MegaReader. While the text formatting is improved in 2.6, and quite good for most books, there are some books, which rely exclusively on CSS formatting, that will still be lacking in MegaReader. For this reason, I am changing the status of this idea from “completed” to “under review”. Thanks everyone for your suggestions and support! -Patrick

                This is also my number 1 request. I want the default appearance of the book to be as close to what the ebook designer intended as is practical, given limitations of screen size, available fonts etc. Book layout first, then book navigation and reading aids, then library organisation, then remote access.

                The ideal situation would be to start honouring the ebook styles but to allow individual aspects to be over-ridden. Most important is to show italic and bold text since that has a strong effect on comprehension. Images are highly desriable. It's desirable to honour styles for titles and other parts of the book.

                It's desirable to be able to selectively over-ride settings like paragaph spacing and indents, but that's probably a separate request so I won't say more.

                This forum is great and so far the developer is starting to deliver - I suggest toning down disapproval from some posters if you want to get the best possible response.
