This menu was previously available, although the only options were to change between readers.
We have now added 3 new quick actions:
Reverse reading direction
The first 2 options were already possible before (although not as accessible), the third one is new. We will be adding more actions in the future.
Zoom lock is a new action available in the quick actions menu. To enable it you need to zoom into a page, tap on the top right and then tap Lock Zoom.
This will fix the current level of zoom and maintain it in all pages. This feature is great if you want to get rid of page borders.
This release also fixes a bug where the double page reader will not remember correctly were it was left off and another bug that will show empty pages on double page reader.
We are uploading a new build. Zoom Lock will always center the content to provide consistent behavior across pages.
Keep in mind that Zoom Lock doesn’t analyze the pages to detect borders or anything like that.
We are not planning to add any border detection in this version or future version, for now. Building something like that requires quite a lot of complexity for a very niche feature.
We need you to understand that every feature we add to the app has quite a lot of ramifications and keeping the balance between adding features and maintaining the simplicity of Panels is not an easy task.
To us, simplicity weighs much more than features, and we need to protect that.
I think that is debatable. I understand that what you want is to trim the page borders. On one hand, if the comic is correctly scanned, margins should be symmetric, and centering the zoom would trim them proportionally. If the scan is not great, and margins are not equal on every side of the page, they will very likely be different across pages, and you’d need different offsets for every page.
Centering the zoom is a compromise solution that will probably cover a big percentage of the use cases.
