I don't know anything about the 100 page limit. I copied a 263 page book into Word 2010 and pasted with keep source formatting and the book looks exactly like it does in Logos. I them e-mailed in docx format to kindle and all ove the source formatting is there. It works great for me

have you tried using a stylus?  I find that simplifies  matters with iPad, but doesn't help much with touchscreen tablet

Nicky - I am confused... an iPad is a touchscreen tablet. Are you using a stylus? Does it help?

Sorry, got my technical terms confused.  Stylus helps on iPad, but not on acer convertible notebook/taBLET when in tablet mode (i.e. screen turned round and folded back.

I have a soft tip stylus

Jerry Bush:
is there a way around the 100 page limit

Jerry, I remember something about a limit, but it's been a while since I copied over 100 pages.  Don't remember, other than I have just to try a book on my old Kindle.  If nothing else, copy 100, then another 100, etc. and paste it all into the same file.

The Print/Export feature has a 100 page limit. But if you export to a Word document using a small font it is not a big issue. I just used Print/Export to send two books to Kindle using Microsoft Word. Kindle was able to resize the font.

Some on the forum have recommended using PDF to send files to Kindle. It may have been the only option in the past, but it appears that now there are better options.  When I used PDF, I had to adjust page and font size as Kindle was not able to resize the pdf files that I was sending.

If you highlight and then cut and paste there is no 100 page limit.

Carl -


Do you mean directly in the resource? I can't seem to do that. Ctrl + A does not work, and putting the cursor at the beginning and then holding shift and going to the end doesn't either.

How do you do it/

Use mouse, left click and hold move down until enrire resource is highlighted, release left mouse key, move pointer over highlighted area and right click, choose copy from menu, paste into word, save in latest docx format, e-mail to kindle.

Kindle also keeps the book in the cloud so you are not forced to keep it on device. If you use WiFi there is no charge for the conversion and download to kindle reader. If you download through 3g there is a small fee. I use this feature all the time for a read later feature with logos and the web.

I had never even thought of using the down arrow or (the faster) pg dn button, lol.  I just pulled my cursor to the bottom of the window and it scrolled through.  took a heckuva lot longer to highlight.


ALSO, you can just select "print/export" from the drop down menu in the upper left corner and a new window will pop up.  Notice that it will give you different print options: 1) use selected text 2) page range option 3) options to print section by selecting button.  I love this last option for easy overview and control of what I want copied, except that I think it could be made more efficient: if you want the major selection, say "chapter 1", selecting that box only opens a drop down with all the subsections, and you have to select each one individually.  Can be very time consuming.  I'd rather that the left indented box selection would assume that one would want all the right indented boxes below it.  That would make more sense and be more efficient.  #2 is a great option, just type in 1-100 (or iii-89, or whatever) and "voila!"

Nice feature.

I use the print and export feature when I want to print and export small sections, however, I can highlight, cut and paste an entire book into Word 2010 with my mouse faster that it takes logos to build a print or export file which still has the 100 page limit.

I guess I hadn't timed the two.  But, first, I must say, you taught me what I did not know, that your way does not have the 100 page limit.  At the same time, I wonder if you do it in a way I don't really know about, because it still takes a while to hold page dn until all is selected.  just typing in page 1-100 seems pretty easy, then pasting, and doing 101-200, etc.  Am I missing something?

Maybe my laptop is slow, but when I enter pages it seems to take a while before the print export is ready. Also if the resource does not have page numbers you have to individually ck every box. I Prefer my method for entire books because it does not require me to build the books in peaces unless they exceed the clipboard capacity.

MJ. Smith:

Milford Charles Murray:
Either with the Kindle or something more expensive, I would like to put various study documents and .pdf documents

The Kindle Fire does handle a variety of documents - I've only tried PDF's thus far ... but I am going slowly because it is touch screen and I have inherited my great-grandfather's hand size.

Thanks, MJ!                 *smile*                                                   Peace!

              Perhaps you or someone else could help me make a final decision.  My daughter is getting antsy about no decision from me as to whether or not I want a Kindle from her for Christmas.  I have only a few more hours to make up my mind.                            

                        My only purpose for a reader is to read Logos and Vyrso books.  Plus some of my own .docs  and .pdfs.  I would be highly unlikely to buy an e-book from Amazon unless perhaps my dear wifey wanted one.            ............                   (I do not have 3g service, no mobile phone, but only a very good high-speed cable.)

                                     Therefore, can I possibly want a Kindle                      OR                should I ask my daughter to give me the money for me to put aside to save up for an iPad?               I can then put "money for an iPad" on my family wish list for Father's Day, my birthday, and whatever..             I've looked at some of the various tablets; however, they are expensive enough also.                    Perhaps it would be better to wait until I could get an iPad.

           The opinion of a dear brother or sister from the Forums Community would be very important to me at this point.             Bottom line:  if I settle for a Kindle now, would I always be wanting an iPad???                 Could I possibly be happy with a Kindle?                    I urgently desire an e-reader since I'm tired of reading from my desktop.

                 Thank you so much!   In advance   ...      for your kind opinion...............                *smile*                                     Hebrews 12:1

Philippians 4:  4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. 5 Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand..........

Save for an Ipad. New version of Ipad comming out next year and rumor of a cheaper version to compete with the cheaper android tablets.

save for an older version iPad, as that will be cheaper.  I have an iPad 1 and don't feel deprived that it's not the latest model!  Tho Kindle is much better for reading in bright sunlight.  I have both, and use both, frequently, one or other several times a day.  I thought the iPad might be  an unjustified extravagance, but I'm getting full value out of it.  Kindle is handy in situations where I have to wait, church when the priest is late, bank, supermarket queue etc.  Or in Albanian buses, where I don't want to flash an iPad around.  In fACT KINDLE IS MORE CONVENIENT IN ANY BUSES - I also used it in Germany.

Charles, I have neither.  I'd say some of it comes down to how quickly you want to start reading and how long it will take you to get money for the iPad.  there is no question that if I could have either, i'd choose the ipad.  BUT, it might take me 1 or 2 years to have the money to get one.  Pretty sure I don't want to wait that long.  The iPad will always work better and be snappier in its performance and capabilities.  But, people have said the KF is fine for just reading.  With the extra 300 you'd spend for and ipad, think of all the resources you could get!  Surprise  Cool  Angel

 

not an easy decision.

she is referring to the original "e-ink" kindles, and not the Kindle Fire (right, Nicky?), which is backlit like the iPads. 

 

Nicky, I have begun to rethink my desire for a KF or iPad right now.  I might get by with a regular ol' Kindle I have and send personal documents to myself to read.  Not as convenient and powerful, but it can be done, and the reading pleasure is a bit better--unless it is dark. we'll see.  I vacillate so much on this! :)

Dan - I have a Kindle 3 and a Fire. The Fire does some cool things, but NOTHING beats reading on e-ink.

I have a cover for my K3 that has a light built in to it and runs off the Kindle battery. It is fantastic. I don't need it most of the time, but it's nice to have.

You can get a new one now as low as $80. I don't know if they make lighted covers for those however. They might, I just don't know one way or the other.

Hi Jerry, I have the same setup, although my wife often snags it and leaves me with the one that is without.  (we have two . . . long story).  But it is quite a bit heavier/awkward, imo.  I don't know how that would compare with holding the KF.

If you are not worried about getting one by Christmas, there are rumors that Apple will begin to create additional pricing points with the iPad, just as they have done with the iPhone (you can get a 3G free, a 4 for $99, or 4s for $199). The rumor is that Apple will sell an "older" model (1 or 2 Gen) iPad at the $300 price point. These are just rumors (I know some don't like to hear them), so take it with a grain of salt.
