  Unable to Connect to calibre Server Using SSL with Self-Signed Certificate
Posted by: TheKidzKid - 05-23-2023, 04:14 PM - Forum: Support - Replies (2)

Hey All-

I just downloaded Freda and tried to connect it to my established and accessible calibre server and receive an error message rather than a catalog after entering my login info. The message just says "Failed to donwload"... I'm assuming this has something to do with the fact that I'm using a Self-Signed Certificate for SSL. I have no issue reaching my calibre server in a web browser, but I must agree upon first connection to "Proceed" past the security warning because the certificate is not issued by a trusted authority. I believe this is where Freda is failing, but that is only my assumption. Also, I don't believe this should matter, but calibre is running on a non-standard port, which I inserted in the appropriate box in Freda.

The only log file I found at AppData\Local\Packages\5957Turnipsoft.freda_ypmq2qh89vmny\LocalState\Freda only seems to contain one associated entry:
2023-05-23 08:55:01.739: INFO: OpdsCatalogBookSource.Navigate callback: download has failed 'https://calibre.{someDomain}.com:{Port}/opds'

This message doesn't really give much to go by. Just to reiterate, I have no issues accessing the calibre server via a web browser on the same computer as the server, or from other hosts on the network, or even over the Internet. I have tried to connect with Freda from multiple hosts as well, to no avail.

Thanks in advance for your help!

  Allow hiding the bottom for speed reading
Posted by: nkormanik - 03-11-2023, 08:12 AM - Forum: Suggestions - Replies (1)

I find it distracting to see at bottom the speedreading additional window.

Please allow hiding that.  Just show the page changes in main window.

Hitting the x, as you know, not only closes the speed reading additional window, it also stops the speed reading itself.

-- Give option to avoid garish green screen at open.  Open straight to document.

-- Give option to define all four margins of document separately:  Top, Bottom, Left, Right.  And allow for plenty of white space there, if user desires such.

-- Like the top competition for best epub reader -- Moon Reader + -- please try to implement auto-next-page scrolling.  Speed can be set on overall scale 1-to-100.  Or, time per page, like, 3 seconds, whatever.

Freda is really a welcome program.  Thanks!

  Export Highlights as Plain Text
Posted by: jbhjbhjbh - 10-24-2022, 11:12 PM - Forum: Support - Replies (1)


I'm wondering if there is any way to export highlights as plain text? I can only seem to export it as a table with formatting. 

I export of my book notes to edit them later and that's almost impossible to do with a lot of notes in the current format it's exported as. Would be very helpful if there was a way to do this.

Many thanks

  Offline Dictionary?
Posted by: midas32 - 09-20-2022, 02:56 PM - Forum: Support - Replies (2)

Hi Jim,

I know that the Freda Windows app is supposed to have good integration with Perfect Dictionary from the Microsoft Store. Unfortunately, Perfect Dictionary seems to be abandoned and unsupported, and for new users it is impossible to download dictionary files due to errors within the app.

Other than Perfect Dictionary, are you aware of any other offline dictionaries that integrates well with Freda on Windows?

  Screen Size on Microsoft Surface
Posted by: ffkarle - 09-03-2022, 03:42 PM - Forum: Support - Replies (1)

 I'm new to Freda+ and cannot figure how to get Freda+ to display a book beyond the microscopic size it's appearing in on my Surface 3 Pro. My 60+ year old eyes can't read anything as small as what I'm seeing. Any assistance you can give me would be appreciated.

  Hyphenation CSS
Posted by: SofieD - 08-06-2022, 09:52 AM - Forum: Support - Replies (2)


I am sort of new to Freda but I've been working with e-books for a while. My native language is Dutch and often, hyphenation isn't the best as not every reader/software supports Dutch. Now, I usually turn off hyphenation alltogether so the readers won't have to deal with wrong hyphenation. 

I include the following code in the CSS:

 -epub-hyphens: none;
  -webkit-hyphens: none;
  -ms-hyphens: none;
  hyphens: none;
  adobe-hyphenate: none;

This turns off hyphenation in about everything except Freda. 

What code do I need to turn it off in the Freda reader?

Thank you in advance!

  How Does One Delete Tag Names
Posted by: drnebula - 07-06-2022, 03:20 AM - Forum: Support - Replies (1)

The tags work very well. NOW, what I would like to know is how to delete a tag name after you have created it.  I've ended up with tags like Medical and MEDICAL and end up getting myself confused.  But I can't seem a way to delete one of these tag names.

  Can You Organize Books Into Named Folders?
Posted by: drnebula - 06-30-2022, 11:34 PM - Forum: Support - Replies (2)

I like Freda a lot - it has shown itself to be the best e-reader around.

I've got quite a few books in the program and it would be nice if one could place books into named folders to organize them and thereby find them more easily.  

Is there a way to do this?

  Bookmarks Not Loading On Android Tablet
Posted by: drnebula - 06-29-2022, 11:44 AM - Forum: Support - Replies (2)

I started using Freda on my PC quite a while ago and liked using the bookmarks for discussions in reading clubs.  Recently I found the Freda app for my Samsung Android tablet, but when I tried loading, I get the books but no bookmarks.  

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Freda on the Android tablet which did not work among other things.

It would be really great to be able to be reading a book on the PC and be able to continue reading and using the same bookmarks on the Android tablet.

Any help appreciated.
