  Issues trying to connect to calibre server
Posted by: cnicu - 01-04-2019, 02:25 PM - Forum: Support - Replies (3)


I have just installed freda on Windows and I have tried to connect to my calibre server. Unfortunatlely it is not possible to cofigure freda such a way that it produced the correct target URL.

I need something like https://calibre.mydomain.com:8077/calibre1234 or respectively https://calibre.mydomain.com:8077/calibre1234/opds

All I succeeded by configuring the app was something like https://calibre.mydomain.com/calibre:8077/opds which is not working (as it's also not a valid URL)

Can I influence the String that freda builds/uses as target URL somehow? (e.g. by editing the registry?)

  Connection Freda+/Calibre KO
Posted by: tekkk - 12-29-2018, 02:28 PM - Forum: Support - Replies (1)

Good morning,
i have problem to connect Freda to Calibre. I have followed the support guide : http://www.turnipsoft.com/forums/showthread.php?tid=7, but the problem persist.
I think , because at the calibre server address, there is not a list of my books, but only a "presentation" page with a button labeled "my calibre library name".  Exclamation
Only when i press the button the next page contain my books list. 
I have installed calibre 3.36.0

Is there a solution? Huh

  Freda will not open documents (epubs)
Posted by: DaMick - 12-08-2018, 07:43 PM - Forum: Support - Replies (3)

When I attempt to open an epub document, Freda opens the green screen but will not open any document. I really like Freda but this has me confused.
I uninstalled the Freda app, restarted, reinstalled the app, same thing, no document.
Does anyone have any ideas?

Thumbs Up Change the default colour of highlight
Posted by: tenar2233 - 10-23-2018, 09:42 AM - Forum: Suggestions - Replies (1)

At present, if you select the text and click highlight, the default colour is blue. I was wondering if the user can change the default colour, which means when I select the text and click highlight, the colour will be yellow or something else. This will save me from the trouble of changing the highlight colour every time.

Thank you very much! Freda is really one of the best epub readers, and I hope it could be better[Image: wink.png]

  Key Controls and Margin control
Posted by: Lyn - 09-09-2018, 09:14 PM - Forum: Suggestions - Replies (3)

Hello :-)

Thank you for your good work so far! I've downloaded your reader, because it's the only one I've found with auto-scrolling that doesn't need a mousewheel for it to work. there are however, several things that would make it even better :-)

1.) I can't controll the auto scroll speed with any keys (making it slow down a little bit or speed up), I always need to use the mouse/touchpad for that and I'd appreciate it greatly if this were possible

2.) I'm on a screen with horizontal layout (?) (I'm talking about a normal laptop screen) and I prefer having the text in one fairly narrow column (calibre reader does it the way I mean if you want a visual example), but I don't really have the option of adjusting the margins on the left and right (ideally, the text is in the middle with about the width it would have if I put in two columns of text instead of one)

3.) (by far the least important) maybe have the app recognize if it's on a touch screen capable device? all these options for tapping this and that make the settings fuller than they need to be if used on a normal laptop.

Should I have phrased anything confusingly or akwardly, I apologize, English is not my first language, I'm happy to clarify though :-)
Also, if one of these things are already implemented and I just missed it, sorry, and an explanation would be really cool

I want to add a particular dictionary for the search function in freda. But I don't know how to add the path.

The dictionary i want to add has the following path
C:\Program Files (x86)\COED11\coed11.exe

I am not good with coding, so can you tell me what to add in define text in the dictionary?

Thank you

  Portrait mode needs good margin controls
Posted by: dwall - 08-09-2018, 04:40 PM - Forum: Suggestions - Replies (2)

If you use it on a large tablet like MS Surface book 2, in portrait mode it is too wide for comfortable reading. Setting  80 for the border does not help, it just mainly makes the page shorter. The setting regarding margins does not seem to do anything to help. In Moon + Reader for Android, you have full control of all four margins and no limits. This is really needed in Freda since it works best on Windows tablets and they tend to have larger screens.
