Here is a list of Frequently Asked Questions about Freda.  If you have any other questions that you'd like to see answered here, please post in this topic and - unless I think your question is a bad idea for some reason - I will add it into this post.

Q: I've just downloaded Freda and I don't know where to start
A: Take a look at this basic introduction video. And please feel free to post questions on this forum, or email for support (you can do this from the 'support' option on the main application menu).

Q: Is there a manual
A: Yes.  Here.

Q: Can Freda be used to read DRM-protected EPUB books?
A: Sadly, no.  You may be able to use the Kobo Reader or the Adobe Digital Editions reader to do this, depending on what platform (Phone, PC, Tablet, HoloLens ...) you are using.

Q: Can you give me any advice about how to remove DRM protection from EPUB books?
A: No.  And please don't ask in the forums; it's a quick way to get yourself banned.  A search on Google (or Bing, if you are that way inclined) might offer you some hints, but please don't discuss the subject here, and do bear in mind that, depending where you live, it may be illegal to remove DRM protection from digital media.
