      • 15. SAVE THE "n" BUTTON  NOOK Color Update 1.4

        Agree 1000%.  We should have the option of using the TOUCHSREEN - save the "n" button.  I fear the "n" button will have issues like the USB charger does due to te plastic casing being thin - after all how many replacement cords has BN had to ship out.  PLEASE don't create a "n" button issue.

          I don't mind having to press the "n" button for everything. I got used to doing it on my NOOK Simple Touch, so I appreciate the consistency.

            I like the ability to enlarge an illustration in a book by double tapping it, then doing the pinch-and-zoom move.  WAY better than peering at a one inch square and trying to make out what it is.

              Why is everyone so dense regarding Netflix and Hulu? Like any other app, go to the app store and download them! Good grief!

                I hate having to use the "n" button, I like everything on the touch screen, hence the term touch screen.  PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE have a patch or option to allow the touch "n" to be brought back.

                  I want my touch screen thingy back to.   Please B&N?????  I don't like having to use my n button.

                    The new update is sooo UGLY , I hate it !

                      Regarding the n button thing: you know, pressing it once opens the menu, while pressing it twice takes you to the home screen... Regarding settings, a couple things I did shortly after getting a nook tablet: i went to settings and turned off the media shortcuts menu on the home screen, and turned off in the daily shelf settings "recently opened library items"... This keeps the home screen looking cleaner... imho the media shortcuts is kindof redundant with the main library menu, and I turn off the "recently opened library items" so apos and books and things don't appear in the daily shelf, and instead I use the daily shelf for all my shortcuts to apps I use alot like evernote, pulse, netflix, pandora, movie gallery, etc...

                          So far, knock on wood, a major improvement is the Library and Bookshelf display speeds. Under 1.3 it seemed to take forever for my Library or Bookshelf to become available, That it is, it would sit there with a busy signal for quite a while before I could start reading.  and it would rescan everytime I returned to them, even from reading a book. If I stopped reading and went back, it would take forever to  rebuild the lists. Now it seems to take no more than 20 or 30 seconds.

                           

                          I just hope they get the Foxit PDF Reader adapted to the Nook ASAP. I just installed it on my Galaxy Tab, and it is the first Android PDF reader that has bookmarking, highlighting, and notating, even with DRM. These features are absolutely essential with so many manuals available in PDF!

                            I installed the Nook Color 1.4 update yesterday.  It installed quickly with no problems.  I thought that a Netflix app would show up.  Were there any new apps that were going to be installed?  I saw the My Media which takes me to my Photo Gallery.  I did notice the new menu bar at the bottom for clicking on home, web etc..It's kind of like the new Nook Table which I recently purchased for my daughter.  Love the new Nook Tablet.  But I still like the Nook Color as I did buy it for primarily reading but like to be able to check e-mail!

                              Does anyone know if there's anyway to disable the screen rotation lock/unlock icon while you're reading (once you've chosen to lock or unlock it)?

                               

                              It's incredibly distracting to have it keep popping up every time the Nook shifts slightly to the left or the right. It seems to me that once you've decided to lock the screen orientation one way or the other, it should stay....well, locked. 

                               

                              Am I wrong here?

                               

                              And oh yeah: mark me as most definitely in the camp to bring back the touch screen menu....having to click the physical button seems like a hardware failure just begging to happen. Unless of course B&N would like to proactively guarantee alll of us that it will replace our Nook Colors free of charge when they inevitably fail due to this software deisgn flaw.....

                              • 27. Re: NOOK Color Update 1.4

                                Make the screen rotate until you've got the mode you want.  A little padlock should show up in the bottom right hand corner.  Click it to lock the orientation.

                                  I installed the upgrade yesterday at the store. The problem I'm having is with bookmarks. If I leave my book by double tapping on the n to get to the home screen and then go back to my book, my place is lost. If I place a bookmark, go to the home screen by double tapping on the n, the bookmark I just created is lost. I get the message about staying on the same page or going to the last read page but the same page is not where I was.  I do have multiple devices on my account since my husband has a Simple Touch on the same account and often reads the same books I do, so if I choose to go the last page read, I go to his last page read.  How do I fix this?

                                    When I reopen the book I am reading a pop up asks me if I want to go to the last page read on this devise and shows the page number OR go to the last page read on another devise and shows that page number. Are you reading the question correctly?

                                     

                                     

                                     

                                    After I posted I played with it a bit ,I think mine is reading my husband's device as "this devise" because it is loaded in his main B&N memory and my devise is "other devise" because it is on my sd card. Very strange. Would be nice to have a complete explanation of all the new works. Anyway the page number for other devise is the page I am on.
