Re: New book technology

Note that the South China Morning Post was acquired by Alibaba Group in 2016, Since then, its not clear whether it has maintained its independence from the mainland Chinese government. As an alternative, you might have a look at the English editions of Japan's big two: Yomiuri (right-leaning) and A...

Re: New book technology

I'm not being nosey, Orphy, but I'm really intrigued as to the category of the books, and also what type of individual would amass all those books, then spend seven years digitising them before donating them to a school. OK! I am being nosey :oops: I built bookcases to house all my books. Granted, ...

Re: THE FATE OF EMPIRES and SEARCH FOR SURVIVAL

In my copy of The Fate of Empires, it on page 24, but if you're using the link, go to page 15, XXIV The Arab Decline. I read it three times, just to be sure I wasn't imagining it or misreading it. It's truly amazing. :shock: :) Vic It was mind boggling to read. Even Glubb couldn't believe what he r...

Re: New book technology

Don't get me wrong, I love analog books. But, if I'm honest, I have to admit that ebooks are pretty nifty, as well. I don't have to rely upon the good graces of my friends and relatives when moving, for one. Secondly, if I'm traveling, an ebook reader is lighter to pack. Thirdly, I don't need a sep...

Re: Sorting Bookmarks in the Inspector

Many thanks for your answer. From now on I will have to drag and drop each new bookmak as soon as I enter it. Not very handy; even less if I try to do it for the already existing bookmarks. It would be so helpful to have the possibility of sorting bookmarks in the inspector via a menu and/or a shor...

Re: How to control the width of the "Wrap" page layout view?

Then why does Page view give the option to choose from Page setup settings or Compile settings if Compile Settings are also based on Page setup settings? Because Compile settings *can* differ from the Page Setup settings, and you might want to switch between the two. For instance, suppose you only ...

Re: How to control the width of the "Wrap" page layout view?

By default, the Compile command will use the same page size as the editor, defined by the Page Setup command. Then why does Page view give the option to choose from Page setup settings or Compile settings if Compile Settings are also based on Page setup settings? Hmmm do I really want to know the a...

Re: How to control the width of the "Wrap" page layout view?

Thank you Katherine and Jo. Jo confirmed what I had posted in my previous text "Anyway I think I found out how to control the width and that is by going to file>page setup." Too bad it can't be done the same way as with the main editor by just specifying a width. I have already setup a cus...
