I read a FL ebook. Then I removed it from my device. Eventually I noticed that it was not showing 100% read in my Library. Then I tried to fix that using "Mark resource as read". Nothing. Then I tried "Reset reading progress". Still nothing.

I'm thinking about this ... what functions should we expect to be able to do on resources not on the device? I don't know ... I'm thinking.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

These two, for the same reason that I expect to be able to edit title, short title, and MyTags... the program shows me the information, so editing it should work.

I'm puzzled by that. Did it display 0% read or no ring in Resource info? If you filter Library for Devices > Not on this device does it show as Reading Staus > Unread?

I have many books with Reading Status > Finished (not on device). I downloaded an ebook showing 61% read and finished it (100% read). Then I removed it back to the Cloud, but it still showed as 100% read.

I can reproduce the inability to change Reading Status, but Reading Status was not affected by removing the book.

Can you reproduce the latter?

I doubt that that book ever showed 100% read. The bug am I reporting is only the inability to change the reading percentage.

(The bug that it's possible to read an entire book and have it not show 100% done is one that's been around approximately forever, and I stopped caring about it once I noticed that I could manually set books I had in fact read in full to 100%.)
