    Missing Punctuation in Desktop eReader 2.1.1.1

      Apostrophes and em dashes, and maybe other marks, are missing from view in the book I just bought, Linchpin by Seth Godin. They appear as a space instead, e.g. "doesn't" appears as "doesn t". Any suggestions?

          Umm, I'm pretty sure there is nothing you can do about that.  It has to do with the way the ebook was formatted.  I've noticed it, too, but I choose not to let it bother me.  It's not so frequent it's distracting.

              Already discussed as a problem with 2.1.1.  It was working fine before that release.  I rolled mine back to 2.1.0.2.  I still had the install file for that version.

               

              Send the support site an email so they know you are having a problem.  Hopefully a different support team from the NOOK, so they can work on it.

                  If you previously went through earlier versions of the ereader, you may be able to find the install file for the versions before 2.1.1 in your AppData\roaming\Barnes & Noble\DesktopReader\Updater.  The location of this directory varies depending on your version of Windows.  In windows 7 and I believe Vista its a hidden system directory (so you will have to set options to display all directories) in \users\YourID where yourid is usually the id you use to logon to windows.
