Problems with May 2018 update

With latest (May 2018) update, all my side-loaded PDFs have gone (yes, I’ve done the Adobe login) and the dictionary feature has gone missing. It’s a good app when it works, but updates often break things....

And no, you can still not highlight across pages....

—- OLD—-
Latest version (Feb 2017) has a new problem. One can no longer highlight text across more than one page. If seems that every time there's a cosmetic upgrade, core functionality takes a step back.

Now March 2017 version tries to add 'sort by date added', but the sort is completely wrong. Looks close to random. Not working...

Works. Does what it's supposed to do.

I have no qualms with much of the app besides

1. Multi-page highlighting. Would it be possible to allow us to drag a highlight over a page turn without having to muck with the font size to put everything on the same page first?

2. Picture quote function. Still a square - no doubt a vestige of the old Instagram days. 9:16 has since become the new hotness, guys.

Love this app

Convenient. Automatic bookmarking allows me to continue reading on different devices. Would be better if the app allows for purchase of new books too.
