#6982 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Location in a document is not remembered

Reported by: ffm Owned by: morgs
Priority: high Milestone: Future Release
Component: read-activity Version:
Keywords: usability Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Deployments affected: Action Needed: never set
Verified: no


(This is analogous to ticket 6981 for the Browse activity)

When a activity is resumed, Browse should resume at the same area the user was at when the activity was closed.

Use Case:

Matt reads free textbooks via the internet (or his school server). Some of these documents are very long (many printed pages) and it is difficult for him to find where he left off. Fortunately, Read resumes his prior activity exactly as he left it.

Read will save and resume the current page as soon as I've fixed the current datastore issues I'm having.

Hmm, now I remember the report that the metadata for this doesn't survive rebooting...

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

The actual problem here is #4662 - the datastore doesn't preserve custom metadata across reboots. I'm closing this as I can't do anything about that in Read :(
