I use Active Ebook compiler. I would like to know if it is possible for the reader to bookmark a page (or several) in an ebook compile with this compiler AND if it is possible to jump directly to a page when the ebook contents say 100 pages. The pages have no specific title apart from the page number
Perhaps it would be interesting to have a new button on the tool bar that could store a several bookmarked pages in a list (with possibility of a commentar for each page). The last page viewed being automatically stored in a specific place (head of list) with a separation (a simple line) of those pages choosen by the reader.
I think the bookmaking is a VERY useful idea. Especially as the length grows above 15 to 20 pages. Here's my BS (Belief Statements ) on it.
-Auto open to last page viewed should be a user toggled option.
-Gerard's idea is good! --A Single button for all bookmarks with last page on top --Most recent down to least recent also would work. --A user comment line (40 char or so) ---so they could note why they marked that page would be good.
-A Paragraph or sentence level bookmark would be awesome!
-KISS --Compatibility isn't that important. --Ease of use is! --Each book has its own bookmarks. (Just like the "Real World") --Simple dropdown from button or menu --Limit it to 10 or 15 items. --If more than this are needed, maybe the book needs reordering.
Framesets come into bookmarks because of the way they are handled by browsers. Try going to a site that uses frames and navigate to an internal page which is frame, then bookmark. Return to the bookmark and you're back at the start of the path.
Perhaps should it be fine to have two buttons added on the tool bar. One to store automatically the last page viewed when a reader is leaving the book and another to allow the reader to bookmark its own pages with a commentary.
Now regarding the use of the book itself.
It seems that many people have some difficulties to understand some processes such as the password implementation or the recentring of the screen when ebooks have been made to work "properly" with a 1024 X 768 definition screen. Some, even, are modifying the font size and do not understand why it remains changed after leaving the book.
I have made an : "How to use this book" page in my ebooks.
I think it would be interesting to be provided with the tool bar icons (as .gif files) in order to put them near the devoted explanations. It would be very useful as well to give with the compiler a series of small ready to use .gif files for commands such as : Home, Next or Previous page, Next 10 pages or Previous 10 pages, etc (perhaps there are other needs that will upsurge with time)
