Book Preview

When you put the mouse cursor over some book's title or cover, Booknizer shows a popup preview for the book. The preview typically contains some basic information: cover, title, author, genres, year, rating. Such previews are displayed only in the right-hand area of the program.

Normally, a preview shows information that Boooknizer downloaded or extracted from the corresponding e-book / audio book file when you added the book. It works for manually added information, too. Previews work in all situations where a book is referenced. For example, here is a preview on an author's page, in the bibliography section:

Once you move the mouse elsewhere, the popup disappears. No items in the popup can be clicked (although some of them may look like links).

If you have downloaded information about an author and check the author's bibliography, you may notice that there are no previews for some books. Booknizer shows previews only for books that are in your collection (have the "In collection" flag set).

The preview feature is enabled by default, but you can disable it in the "Options" window. Select "Tools" - "Options":

Go to the options window

On the "General" tab of the "Options" window, uncheck the "Show preview for the book/author on mouse over" box:

Disable the preview option

Click "OK" to confirm and close the window.

This will disable popup previews both for books and for persons (authors, editors, translators).
