Ebooks are digital books imported through the desktop or mobile application onto your device.
Important to know before transferring ebooks onto your reMarkable:
- The reMarkable paper tablet supports the open ebook format EPUB without DRM, a format available with many ebook retailers.
- Some ebooks are DRM-protected (Digital Rights Management), which the reMarkable does not support at this time.
- The Amazon Kindle ecosystem is not open to third parties, so you can't read Kindle books directly on the reMarkable.
View all pages inside an ebook by tapping the ebook options icon, then the Page overview icon ( ). Go back to a single page view by tapping a page, or by tapping Back in the top left corner.
Turn pages by swiping left or right on the display. It’s also possible from the page overview menu, to navigate to a specific page in an ebook, by tapping Go to page, and entering the page number you wish to skip to.
Organize your ebooks
Ebooks can be organized by moving them into folders under My files. All your ebooks will be displayed in the ebook section on your home screen, regardless of where they are located.
Tailor the ebook view to your preferences by using text settings, where you can adjust text size, font, justification, page margins, and line spacing. Text settings are only available for ebooks.
How to change the text settings:
If a non-DRM ePub file is not displaying text properly:
- Open the ebook you want to read.
- Tap the ebook options icon, in the side menu bar, then Text settings ( ).
- Tap directly to adjust the various view settings.
- Tap Done to close the settings.
- Go to text settings while you have the ebook open. Change the justification and the line spacing. You can also try to change the page margins and the size of the text.
- If this doesn’t work you can try to delete the book from the reMarkable and try to import it again.
