De E-book viewer

Calibre bevat een ingebouwde E-book viewer die alle belangrijke e-book formaten kan lezen. De E-book viewer is zeer aanpasbaar en heeft veel geavanceerde functies.

Starten van de E-book viewer

U kunt ieder boek bekijken in uw calibre-bibliotheek door het boek te selecteren en de knop Bekijken te drukken. Hiermee wordt het boek geopend in de lezer. U kunt de lezer ook inschakelen vanaf het Start-menu in Windows. In macOS, kunt U het vastzetten in het dock en het van daaruit starten. In Linux you kunt U de starter in het desktop menu gebruiken of het commando command ebook-viewer gebruiker.

De look and feel van de leeservaring personalizeren

You can change font sizes on the fly by using Font size in the viewer controls or Ctrl++ or Ctrl+- or holding the Ctrl key and using the mouse wheel.

Colors can be changed in the Colors section of the viewer preferences.

You can change the number of pages displayed on the screen as well as page margins in Page layout in the viewer preferences.

You can display custom headers and footers such as time left to read, current chapter title, book position, etc. via the Headers and footers section of the viewer preferences.

More advanced customization can be achieved by the Styles settings. Here you can specify a background image to display under the text and also a stylesheet you can set that will be applied to every book. Using it you can do things like change paragraph styles, text justification, etc. For examples of custom stylesheets used by calibre’s users, see the forums.

Opzoeken in woordenboek

You can look up the meaning of words in the current book by opening the Lookup/search word panel via the viewer controls. Then simply double click on any word and its definition will be displayed in the Lookup panel.

Kopieer tekst en afbeeldingen

You can select text and images by dragging the content with your mouse and then right clicking and selecting Copy to copy to the clipboard. The copied material can be pasted into another application as plain text and images.

Zooming in on images

You can zoom in to show an image at full size in a separate window by either double clicking or long tapping on it. You can also right click on it and choose View image.

Non re-flowable content

Some books have very wide content that content be broken up at page boundaries. For example tables or <pre> tags. In such cases, you should switch the viewer to flow mode by pressing Ctrl+m to read this content. Alternately, you can also add the following CSS to the Styles section of the viewer preferences to force the viewer to break up lines of text in <pre> tags:

code, pre { white-space: pre-wrap }
