A few issues since updates

I have had a few issues since last update
1- Keeps reading pdf's as books and moves them to the default list from original
List and doest go next stories (only with pdf's) I read FanFic so lots of short
Stories.
2- Stops and I cant figure out why, I checked all the issues in forum and fixed
Them
3- It will not start on double tap.
I read on a Galaxy Tab S4 (latest model running pie), I haven't updated my phone (Galaxy S10+ running Q) and it works just fine. I do used the beta version of @Voice on my tab.

    1. PDFs are now extracted to EPUB (HTML) format, to allow adding text styles and images, and also navigation by page numbers, and by table of contents, if such table was present in the PDF. If you don't like this, you may change the PDF text extraction options to extract to plain text format, as was done in older versions. To switch to this format, open any PDF file with the "Open" button on top (folder icon), and then when the PDF Text Extraction Options screen appears, select "Plain text" format on top.
     
    2. Stops - probably you are using a Google Text to speech voice, and it does not have the local speech data downloaded, so it generates the voice over the Internet, and stops when connection goes down or slows. Only Google voices do this. To download the local voice data, connect your phone or tablet to a fast WiFi network, then start listening with that voice for a moment. Google will then start downloading the necessary data. Wait a few minutes on WiFi at least to let them finish. Then the voice will work even without any Internet connection, and without stopping. You may need to repeat this after each update to Google Text-to-speech product, unfortunately. To avoid such troubles, get good voices from Vocalizer TTS package or Acapela TTS, or many others available in Google Play store.
     
    3. You have probably turned off the option to "Start talking at once" - open the Settings menu in @Voice - Speech settings - START tab, then add a check-mark to "Start talking at once" field.

    Thank You I will go and check my settings and change what I need too, hopefully that will fix everything. Have you figured out why reading lists disapear? I read in another post that you did know why that happened.
    Thanks 😊

    No, I have no idea why they disappear on some devices. I have here 9 different Android devices and don't know how many emulators, and it never happened to me... I need an exact method, or sequence of operations, that makes them disappear. Otherwise I don't know what and where to correct.
