Usage:

  • Load items by:
    • Selecting the reader's drive or any folder that contains books that where opened with Koreader.
      This will automatically load all the history files from all subdirectories.
    • Drag and drop files or folders.
      This will load the files and/or all the files inside the folders.
  • View the highlights and various info for a book by selecting it in the list.
  • Save the highlights to the "Archive" and view them, even if your reader is not connected.
  • Merge highlights from the same book that is read in two different devices and/or sync its reading position. To do it you have to:
    • Load both metadata (e.g. your reader's and your tablet's).
    • Select the relevant rows of the (same) book.
    • If the book has the same cre_dom_version (version of the CREngine), then the "Merge/Sync" button gets activated and you get the options to sync the highlights or the position or both.
  • Double click or press the Open Book button to view the book in your system's reader.
  • Save all the selected books' highlights in:
    • A text/html file for every selected book or
    • A single text/html file with all highlights combined.
  • Clear the .sdr folders with the metadata or the books in the eReader.

The previous versions that were based on wxPython can still be found at GitHub, but are considered deprecated.
