Since 1997, you’ve been coming to to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Page Number Box Blocks Text

Wow, first off, I'm surprised and not so surprised at all the complaints! I have had my issues with billing and downloads too, it's very annoying. It's not a good process. I wish there was more competition in the e-textbook niche, I'd like something that works correctly!!!


Which brings me to my original purpose of this visit - a complaint :smileyhappy:


The page numbers at the bottom of the screen cut off some of the words when reading the page in a smaller font to see the entire page at one time.I can't attach a screen shot to here to show you, but it's annoying.


I need to be able to scroll down to see the words under the text box that shows the last line of the page, but when I scroll down one more milimeter, it skips to the next page.


Meaning, I have to use a bigger font that makes me have to scroll down each page. I can read small letters and I prefer to see everything at once.


It's a small thing, but SUPER annoying! There's a lot of space between the bottom of the screen and the page number box. 


I wish that someone had actually TRIED THE PRODUCT OUT before releasing a newer version. I last updated the software today, 11.16.11

Have you tried clicking on the lock icon in the lower right corner?  The panel with the page numbers can be hidden if you do that.

I am having this issue, too.  Also, to the other poster, I have no lock icon in the lower left, what are you talking about?

This has been fixed in the new update.  But beware...when I installed the update, I lost my print and copy allowances.

You should have not lost your print and copy allowances in the update.  I am looking into this issue for you.
