  Questions about syncing + accessibility question
Posted by: DavidB - 12-26-2019, 10:17 AM - Forum: Support - Replies (2)

I've started using freda yesterday and have just activated the "synch using the internet" option in the Settings. So, I now have a /freda/save and a /freda/sync folder in my OneDrive. Neat.

Within the "save" folder, I have a "books" folder which, I suppose, serves as a book repository to sync books between all devices? 

I have three questions: 

1/ Will freda automatically add books in this folder when I open it on a another device? Or do I need to use the sync/merge button menu?
2/ Are the books I imported in freda before activating the sync option supposed to appear there too, or do I need to reimport them? So far they, do not sync at all. 
3/ Aren't bookmarks/note/page reads supposed to sync between devices for each synced book? I've only tested with one book so far (it's saved in the freda/save/books folder, I right-clicked it to open it with freda), but there is no syncing going on between my two devices. 

That said, I've a really terrible eyesight and would not be surprised if you told me I missed some setting or did something wrong Wink

Talking about eyesight and accessibility: the background image in the home screen makes it hard for me to see the book covers and read the text. Is there a way to turn it off and/or is there a way to make the covers/text bigger?

Thx (and thx for the app)

I downloaded freda but cannot figure out how to do basic actions such as finding a books contents and going to the chapter/section I want. Why don't the icons on   freda's page let me know their function when I point to them? I am not interested in the seemingly endless changes available when clicking on the three dots at the lower right. Help, please.

  A couple of suggestions
Posted by: dan2the6th - 10-17-2019, 10:07 PM - Forum: Support - Replies (1)

Hi, I just bought freda+ yesterday for my Windows 10 laptop.

I have a couple of suggestions:

1)  Tweak the UI so that vertical scrollbars in text boxes don't stomp all over the text in the right side of the box.

2)  Offer some way of doing Feedback or Email Support WITHOUT using Outlook.  I use a web-based email, not Outlook.  Even displaying an email address would help, because then I could send an email manually.

Thanks.  So far I like reading my EPUB books with freda!

  Reference tools?
Posted by: ImaGeek - 08-22-2019, 02:31 PM - Forum: Suggestions - Replies (1)

I'm excited to find that Freda is available for my phone. Maybe that's not news, but I only recently found it in the Google Play Store, though I've been using it on my desktop for a few years.

One feature that's high on my list of additional features is reference tools including both a dictionary and a "look up on the web" option for selected text. I believe I've seen other phone reader apps that use a dictionary plug-in, so maybe it wouldn't be too complicated to add that feature to Freda.

Thanks for the great work in getting it this far.

  Disable integration with Windows media keys
Posted by: hanxuel - 07-29-2019, 06:57 AM - Forum: Support - Replies (2)

It seems Freda can be controlled by Windows Media Keys

[Image: 5ft6Pii.png]

This is annoying because it keeps interfering with my music and video player. I have checked Freda's settings, but there does not seem to be any settings to disable Media Key integration.

Is there a way to disable Media key integration for Freda?

Note: these are the media keys I am referring to:

  Mass download from onedrive not downloading ebooks
Posted by: nickell - 07-01-2019, 07:52 AM - Forum: Support - Replies (4)


Im just moving from moon+ so i can have a good reader across my android and windows devices.

i am using onedrive to store the epub books i wish to read and sync across devices.

freda correctly goes through the authentication, let's me see and manually download books, but if i tick on all the books, then on download, whilst the network activity, as expected, is then consistent, none of the books are actually being downloaded, but they are all in the library.

im sure its something i as a newbie have missed, but how can i download the approx 1000 books enmass pls ?

  Bulk Delete From Library
Posted by: billwilts - 06-26-2019, 04:30 PM - Forum: Support - Replies (2)

I accidentally started to add all of my books to the Freda library. I stopped the download but now have lots of "empty" books. Is there any way to use the check mark to select a number of books and delete in one go? At the moment I am having to do them one by one.

Question Does Freda Read .cbr Format?
Posted by: Sithtiger - 06-02-2019, 02:12 PM - Forum: Support - Replies (1)

Hi, just downloaded Freda.  I read that it supported the .cbr file format, but I tried to import a .cbr file, but I don't see the option listed and it doesn't show the file when I select the directory (Folder, sorry old DOS user habit) it's in.  Or does it only support .cbr if you pay for it?  I'm fine with that if that's what I need to do, but money is tight, even $2, but I'd pay it so I don't have to download more ebook readers.  Thanks in advance!

  Failed Google Drive Download
Posted by: mntmn3 - 05-22-2019, 12:19 AM - Forum: Support - Replies (1)

I can't download my books from Google Drive to Freda ("failed to download"). I tap the box as instructed, set it up, but when I come back it tells me the same thing. Chrome is my default browser.

Any chance at all that you'd build in support for WebDAV (or OwnCloud/NextCloud) for multi-system sync in addition to OneDrive?
