Is anyone else having trouble setting bookmarks?
I tap the center of the screen and then the "Context" button. I select the "bookmark" tab. I'm supposed to tap the upper right corner. When I do, no bookmark is set and the screen clears and returns me to reading. I can try this 10-15 times and then finally, a mark is set.
What am I doing wrong?

Make sure the blue ribbon goes dark and slides down; that indicates that the bookmark has been set. Because it's so high on the screen I think it can be a bit difficult to tap on it directly; I have this trouble too.

You may have already figured out how to solve this issue by now, but, if not.....I also had lots of trouble with bookmarks initially. You should be able to, while on the page you want to bookmark, tap the upper right of the screen to "bookmark" the page. If this does not work, you can tap the center of the screen...and then you will see a light gray bookmark in the upper right screen.....tap that. It will turn blue indicating that you have bookmarked the page.
Tapping the center of the page, then Contents, then Highlights (as you described in your post) will only bring up the bookmarks which you have already established. It does not bookmark the page.
Hope this helps!!

I also had a difficult time, but then I learned that if I barely tap the upper right hand corner of the page, almost touching the frame, the dark blue ribbon (the bookmark) will appear.
Remember to retap it to disappear when you want to start reading again.

Neither method works 100% of the time. However, I now can set bookmarks about 50% of the time rather than 5% of the time as I was doing it.
I suspect that part of the problem is that a screen full of text is really just a part of a page and that once a bookmark is set on a page, no further attempts will be honored for a component of that page.
The curious thing is that I was even getting a 5% response from apparently the wrong method, Don't know if that's good or bad.
Thanks to all.
