Would it be possible to download a story with SOL and the automatic 50kb page separation.When you download Magestic some of the parts are 500kb and it would be good to bookmark a page in my personnel library.

My understanding is the download function downloads the file as a whole. However, you can open the story on SoL in your web browser and us the browser's 'Save Page as' function to save each page as you see it.

I've been saving each chapter of the stories I read (Lately anyway) as a continuous file. I copy/paste the current chapter to the end of the 'book' and re-save. When I get to 'The End', I run the whole thing through Calibre and convert it to an epub and load it onto my tablet.

I wish I had started doing it sooner as I no longer have access to a few stories by authors that have, for one reason or other, removed them from SoL.

The only way to download paged chapters is to save them manually from your browser. Every other option delivers complete parts/chapters.

You still have multiple options:
- Download the epub version. Most ePub readers let you annotate & bookmark.
- Use Firefox and keep our reading browser tabs open, on browser restart, it remember the scroll position.
- Add a plug-in to your browser which allow saving along the bookmark the scroll position.
For firefox: "advanced-bookmaks-add-on"
For Chrome: "ScrollMark"

I've always done as Capt Zapp does, copying and pasting the text from the web pages into a Word Processor, which also allows me to correct all the annoying typos and grammar errors as I read. When I'm done, I end up with a more enjoyable reading experience. While you can convert it using Calibre, technically it's a copyright violation, and you're taking money out of the author's pocket (assuming they've published books you can legally purchase).

For myself, as long as it's for your personal use, and you're not trying to resell it as your own work, I'm not concerned with someone reading my stories in whichever format they prefer.
