Feature Request: Book list
I struggle with many issues (not bugs) on my Nova device (but this would be the case on any Boox device I assume).
1) Request: One of those is, that no overview shows, in the overview, which of my annotated books have notes or scribbles (anything like that). It has happened that I removed a book I had read, knowing that I had a copy of the book on google drive, then I realized, too late, that I had made many underlinings in it. Of course I should have paid more attention to the warning before deleting, but the issue is also more generic: the indication how many notes each book has is a great indication of the importance of that book or article in my research. (The "percent read" indication is much less useful, and is sometimes reset to 0, e.g. when I have gone back to the beginning to read the exact title, or to read the introduction).
2) Possible bug: Related to this, also an issue that is probably a bug: in certain pdf's, where I made underlinings, those now appear frozen (not editable anymore, and there's no indication in the details anymore, such as "35 annotations"). I think (not 100% sure) that these are cases where I have migrated books from my first Nova to my Nova 3 Color. Isn't that a bug? Because these pdf's were annotated with the official reader included on both Nova devices! Those should be compatible, isn't it?
3) Sub-request: A great improvement would also be the possibility to add labels to a book - and once again: with the purpose of seeing those in the book listing. You probably have no idea what tremendous value those things have for a researcher who is dealing with hundreds and hundreds of books and papers on a device like this. Your company could work on such things with the purpose of touting Boox devices also as a tool for researchers or simply for study..
Thanks for considering an answer to these two issues. I hope it also helps to improve your otherwise excellent product.
Dear customer, we apologize for the inconvenience.
In the NeoReader, it is possible to view the overview of handwriting or annotation. Please follow the steps below:
When the text is underlined, you could tap on the underlined text and it will pop up a window. After that, you could edit the underlined text (delete underline or change to highlight or change colors.)
Many thanks for your time and hope it helps.0
I know about that, but it is not what I am looking for. The list of annotations may be useful for people who are somehow wanting to read just their annotations, underlinings, etc. or to export those. The thing I am missing is different: it is the ability to go through hundreds of books and articles on my Nova tablet, and see immediately whether a book has annotations (and how many) or not.
If no annotations, I immediately know that I can remove the book and not lose any comments.
If it has annotations, I'll never delete it, but the number of annotations is also a very useful indication of importance of that book or article.
PS. It would also be very useful to be able to add multiple 'labels' to books - but this is again another thing. I added it to my request.0
Dear customer, thank you for providing further info.
In this case, you could try to go to Reading Statistics > Marks and Annotations to search your works. You could access Reading Statistics via the steps below:
You could also search specifically annotations and see how many.
Thank you for your time and understanidng, and hope it helps.0
