The Kobo Elipsa was released a couple weeks ago and I’ve been working on putting together a review, but I’ve found that some of the new features aren’t explained very well (or at all).
One thing that’s odd about Kobo is they don’t include a user manual with their devices, and they don’t provide one to download either. From the “More” menu on Kobo ereaders there are a few help guides but they’re very basic.
There’s a lot more information to be found on Kobo’s help website where you can find tutorials with pictures explaining most of the features .
Here are quick links to some of the help articles for the Kobo Elipsa:
