The user guide has had a big update. Included below is the full release announcement, thanks to @offset-torque.

USER GUIDE 23.10 UPDATE​


This is the biggest ever update to the guide. 2 years ago I started with the intention to make a simple how-to guide. With this release, user guide reached 60 A4 pages ! KOReader might be the best documented reader app now :)

Our guide is now a HTML document:
KOReader User Guide

It was very tedious to recreate the PDF as a web page (especially considering that I had to learn CSS to do it).
But there are many benefits like:
- More frequent and real-time updates
- Better compatibility for smaller devices
- Ability to directly link to it in issues and discussions
- Possibility to be packed as an EPUB
- PDF sucks

Also I recently noticed that our color palette in the guide was not suitable for color blind people. Some important items were indistinguishable for color blind users so I updated the colors to provide nice contrast for them too. Also added icons and visual aids to make the text more accessible.
