I own a Boox Note for a week now. I like a lot of thinks, despite the bugs and lag that was written here often. But I will keep the device and hope this gets fixed soon.
One specific problem I have that hopefully can get changed:
I want to use this device for digital music sheets. But all my songs are in landscape and every song has it´s own PDF file. So if I open a song i have to go to the menu, press “rotate”, press the right rotate option, and touch to make the menu go away. So thats 4 touches before a can play the song.
Also it´s not comfortable to have the menu of the reader only in portrait mode. Because my reader of course sits in landscape mode on my music stand. So either I have use like that (not nice) or I have to turn it to select the next song and turn it again to look at it. Thats pretty bad.
Everythink could be solved there where a button in the notification bar to select between landscape and portrait mode. We could use that for every app and rotating would be so much quicker and it would be universal to use despite having a different way in each app to do it. Because the reader has not sensor to turn, we NEED a button for it in my opinion.
I tried a app to force landscape and it looked like it worked, but then… PDF doesn´t open while in landscape. It only showes the last opended and doesn´t open the document in the library I click on.
Would be nice to see this fixed, thanks in advance!
