One more September update addresses a few annoying issues. In the LitRes store, we fixed possible errors during signing in. Windows version displays the genres list correctly.

The release improves the Unicode support: the app displays symbols with codes larger than 0xFFFF (e.g., emoji).

We changed the behaviour of the right-click menu to make it less confusing in some cases: the bookmark menu displays if the cursor is over an existing bookmark and the text selection at once.

Another minor update is uploaded to the stores and this site. This version adds operations with in-text images: opening a separate window (in that you can zoom the image) and copying images to the clipboard.

The MacOS version fixes crashes in the library and the settings dialogue.
