    Nook Tablet PDF Covers

    Rignes

      I know this problem has been around for quite a while on varirious models of NOOK.  But has anyone managed to find a way to get PDF covers to show in the library of the Nook Tablet (Or even the Color)?

       

      It would be really nice to have them display correctly.  Google searchs aren't bringing me to much of anything but people asking this same question and not getting answers on these forums. :smileysad:

       

      Thanks.

          Have you tried Calibre? It lets you edit the meta data on your pdf files. You can change the name as well as set a new cover.

            I have quite a few PDF files of knitting, crocheting and quilting books and magazines that I want to put on my Tablet.  The only way I can get the covers to show is in the ezPDF app. Nothing that I have tried has worked in the library.  Maybe if we keep asking BN, they may get the message.

              I just got the NT and am also shocked that something so basic as book covers is broken on this, especially so many hardware releases down the road since the initial Nook came out. In Calibre, my covers have been added and show up fine in it, when on my NT, the cover doesn't show ... wtf?

               

              I suppose making sure to not allow users to sideload APK's for free is more important to B&N than having covers on the shelves show up.

                  You can save the Calibre books in epub format (resave it if it's already in that format), move the new file to the Nook, and then the covers will show up on the Nook.

                  I found an easy way to see the covers, just buy the RepliGo PDF Reader APP from your tablet, it cost $2.99 and open your books folder from there and that's it you will see all your documents and books with the right cover
