Hi there and welcome
Can you tell me in which app on your Tablet you are doing this in please?
Correct, but it only has generic android here, and I also deal with Android, Nook issues ect.
The way to quickly get back would be to leave a book mark and then return to the book mark rather then to the place of highlight.
ah ok thats for clarifying it, but no this is not functional within the app sorry. It does not store the actual point, which is why it default back to the beginning. The app is light as they have only done the basics in the app in order to allow the users access to their books on other devices.
