What to do if I delete or move the file of a book by mistake ?

If the pdf or epub file corresponding to the book has been erased or moved to another folder with an external file manager, the thumbnail of the book gets displayed with lighter colors on the bookshelf.

To recover the book without losing the annotations you made inside, you must follow the steps below (feature available since version 2.4.2):

 
  • Double tap on the book to display the book information window
  • Press the Search button near the access path of the missing file
  • Browse to the new location of the file or to the redownloaded file in case of a deletion
  • Go back to the library and try to open the book again. You will find again all the annotations you made in this book too.

An alternate method is the following:
  • Tap on the thumbnail to try to open the book
  • Select Search and tap on OK in the popup
  • Browse to the new location of the file or to the redownloaded file in case of a deletion
  • The book will open with its previous bookmarks, notes and highlights available.
