Getting started on Moon Reader
#1  2scre 07-01-2020, 12:54 PM
I like that there is more selection of fonts, but when I imported an ePub file that I made from Dropbox, the book shows as "unknown" and doesn't show on "myshelf".

By the way, does Moon Reader have ability to categorize into many shelves like you can make collections in Kindle app?

I also noticed that when first highlight and want to extend the highlight, you have to delete the highlight and do it over again, whereas I can just press and extend for Kindle app. Is there a way to do that on Moon Reader as well?

I use Calibre to convert my Kindle books to epub and I always embed the Bookerly font so I can use that in Moon+. I have Moon+ set to use the embedded font. It can also be set to use whatever fonts you like, although I haven't really played with that.

If it shows up as unknown it's probably because you haven't put anything in the metadata. I put the title and author and number of pages and a description in metadata so I have access to that from within Moon+. I also download my books from Dropbox I put them in my micro SD card and load them from there. They appear in the Files section of Moon+ using the file name until I load them and then they'll appear in the recent list. I've never really looked at My Files so I don't know how that works.

I'm not sure about shelves. I don't use collections much on the Kindle so I've never really looked into shelves in Moon+. I like things alpha by author.

The highlights work for me pretty much the same way as they work in the Kindle app. You might have some setting changed that makes them work differently.

Of the forums I know about this is the one where Moon+ is most often discussed.

Moon+ loves to wrap closing " or ' into the next line. The only, but important reason why I don't use it for reading currently. It annoys me massively.

The bet way to start with Moon Reader is to delete it and find program that actually works properly for ePub. The Pocketbook app has been suggested by others as an ePub reading app that works well and Moon Read as one that's lousy.

I'd never claim that Moon+ or any other app is perfect but this is as close to a perfect ereading app as I've found and I've tried a LOT of them.

I don't know about closing or's or even what those might be but I find it easy to read on this app and I do it every day.

Moon+ sometimes displays the closing double-quote or single-quote of a dialogue on the next line. I don't think it's a Moon+ issue, but rather a malformed epub issue. Perhaps there is a blank space between the punctuation mark and the closing quote.

I've been using Moon+ Pro for a number of years and this past year or two I've read on it almost exclusively. I have Kindles, Kobos and Nooks but I've been reading mainly on my phone. I've never noticed a quote being on the wrong page but I'm usually focused on content when I'm reading and it might be that I just didn't notice it. With any luck I'll continue not to notice it so I can keep enjoying my books.

I'm a pretty old guy and I've always loved music and I listened to music for years before the invention of hifi. Anybody remember that term? These days nearly everything is hifi. I listened to old, not that clear speakers on radios that had to be carefully adjusted to get rid of most of the static, but of course we never could get rid of all of it. Then came hifi and radios that went from station to station at the push of a button so the sound was much improved. I loved that. But soon I noticed nobody was talking about the music anymore. They were talking about the quality of the speakers or the amplifier. All my music loving friends kind of forgot about music, or so it seemed to me, and became hifi buffs.
