I prefer epub in general. I’ve looked at the epub in iBooks (iOS and Mac) as well as Mantano reader for Android. None of them display the reversed text I see in the pdf to indicate cursor position. Does anyone know any epub reader that gets that right?
I’m experiencing the same problems with the MOBI format when viewed on either device, Kindle Paperwhite or Kindle app on Android.
I’ve got the same problem with both ePub and mobipocket on my iPhone, only the PDF version is showing the cursor position and search highlighting/visual selection. Unfortunately that’s also the one that is totally unfit to read on the iPhone… The underscore from the previous v1.1 worked well in kindle for iPhone.
I’d love to be able to read this on my Mac and iPhone with either iBooks or Kindle.
The 1st edition displays properly in epub, I don’t know why this can’t be fixed quickly for the 2nd edition!
I have the same problem. I hope this issue will be fixed in the next minor update.
It’s fixed for me in iBooks now (ePub). Thanks a lot!
Unfortunately the issue still persists in kindle, but I wanted to read the book in iBooks anyways ;-)
The issue with epub has now been resolved. Sorry it took us so long to address this.
I’m still seeing this issue with the Kindle edition, any update on when it will be fixed?
This should have been fixed for Kindle with the P1.1 update that was published on January 13th, 2016. Here’s a screenshot from
practical-vim-second-edition_p1_1.mobi, as it appears in Kindle reader on the Mac.
If you’re still not seeing a cursor in the mobi edition, could you let us know which Kindle version you’re using?
I actually bought from Amazon, and not the the .mobi (had I known about the ebook+physical bundle direct from the publisher I would have bought that instead). It looks like they haven’t published the update yet. I tried deleting the book on two different devices, and after redownloading I still get the old version (the copyright page gives the version as “Book version: P1.0— October 2015”).
Has the amazon version been updated?
We’ve sent the updated .mobi edition to Amazon, so it’s in their hands now. I’m sorry that we can’t make this happen any faster for you.
Hi Drew, the problem doesn’t seem to be resolved for E-pub on Android (4.2.1) FBreader (2.6.9 format plugins 1.5.8)…
Hello, Drew! Is the pdf expected? Thanks!
