Reading bookshare Content with AMIS/Position Not Always Preserved When Restarting amis


Hello. I am using version 3.1.3 of AMIS with books from bookshare. very often, when I close AMIS and then restart it my last reading position is not retained and I am placed at the top of the book when I relaunch AMIS. Is this a bug?
also, I'm wondering if development with AMIS is still continuing.

thank you for producing this program; I'm really enjoying it immensely.

This issue can occur when the computer or AMIS crashes while reading a book. AMIS may not be able to save the last read position of the book in such circumstances.

I tested AMIS with several Bookshare books and AMIS did open the book at the last read position everytime.

You may try to clear AMIS settings and try to test the books again. See the section "Clear potentially corrupt files" on the AMIS troubleshooting tips page

AMIS is currently under maintenance mode and known bugs may be fixed in the near future.

Hope this helps. Please do write again if the issue persists.

with regards,


Hello, and thank you for a quick response. I took your advice and ran those batch files. AMIS seems to remember my last position if I close the book first by choosing "close" from the file menu. When I reopen AMIS and go to File, Recent and reopen my book I am at the last read position. However, if I press alt-f4 while the Bookshare book is opened it doesn't seem to remember my position. Does this concur with your findings?

On my computer closing AMIS from the menu or by using the keystroke ALT +F4 does not make a difference. I tested DAISY 3 text only books. I am running Windows 7 32 bit.

Please let me know the title of the book in which you are getting this problem. I have bookshare membership too and i should be able to download it for testing. Also let me know if you are using AMIS in self voicing mode and which TTs is configured in FILE men menu > PREFERENCES.
