    1. You can import book to CBB first. And then go to the book, tap + button, then select "Copy From Book" to copy the pages from book to another book. For PDF case, you can tap + button in element list, and then select Files from dropbox, google drive, etc. to import pdf. OR in book list, tap import button and then select PDF to import pdf as images.

  3. You really think a 15 step process for transferring a file seems reasonable? You know there is this thing called Dropbox. There's also this magical thing called Bluetooth, oh I know there's email too. But what do I know let's just go with your stupid way of doing things.
