I am not able to adjust fonts in certain eBooks.

Certain ePub files are formatted in a way that prohibits the user from changing the font size.

I am getting blank pages when going through chapters.

You may see blank pages after you finish a chapter in the QPL app. Please allow your device to load the chapter before advancing to the next page. If this does not solve the issue, close the book by selecting My Books and then select Read.

My eBook is not rendering correctly when I set text to white and the background to black.

You may see an eBook not rendering correctly if the text is set to white and the background to black. Some books in our collection have been formatted to override the user's background selection. This places white text over a white background. The best way to remedy this issue is to avoid using the black background option on this particular eBook.

What happens if I try to download an eBook from multiple apps in the same device?

If you check out and download an eBook in another app, it may be locked to that app. You will not be able to download the eBook in QPL’s app, even though the title appears on your list of checked out items.

If you would like to read the eBook in the QPL app, return the item in the other app and borrow it again using QPL. Be aware that the eBook may be on hold for another customer, and you may have to wait for it to become available again.
