Hi there,

I was hoping that the Manga option meant that the pages would be displayed in the opposite order, from right to left that is, but it doesn't seem to be doing that. What does the Manga option do (I haven't noticed anything,.. could just be missing something of course)?

If this isn't the intended result of that option, is there another way to read comics this way, or is it possibly something that could be implemented?

Hopefully this doesn't sound unappreciative, great app! :)

Thanks for any help,
Tyraen

I might be sounding a little obvious, but...
1) Did you set \"Manga\" check box (and saved) in the Info dialog of the selected eComic?
2) I don't read mangas. As far as I know, this feature works when browsing the pages of an eComic. The first image displayed will be the last one in the archive, and as you click \"next page\", the reader browses toward the first page. If you set the Manga option and click \"previous page\", it shouldn't work.

Yup, that is set, both in the individual comic (in the drop down) and also from the toolbar, not sure if they are the same thing or not...

I don't think that's the way it is intended to work, hopefully anyways. It doesn't seem to be doing that for me, but if it did it would be strange. Mangas aren't numbered backward (they count in the same direction :). What I'm concerned about is that when viewing in two-page mode, instead of this:
[code:1]
|--|--|
|1 |2 |
|--|--|
[/code:1]
It should show:
[code:1]
|--|--|
|2 |1 |
|--|--|

|--|--|
|4 |3 |
|--|--|
[/code:1]
...etc.

it does show 1/2 but starts showing the 2 if the whole dual page does not fit on the screen. A future version will include an option to choose between this solution and the old one of flipping pages (which was the implemented till some versions ago).

Hmm, I'm not sure we're on the same page (haha). :)

The way it seems to be working right now is that when I'm viewing two pages (ctrl-f11) I read the page on the left and then the page on the right. This feels awkward, since I read the page on the left, but from right to left, and then the page on the right from right to left. If I was reading the physical comic, I would read the page on the right first and then the page on the left.

Erg, is that what you thought I meant? Maybe I should take some screens.

Thanks for the replies though!

the comicrack version i have here displays first the right page (moving down right to left) and then the left page (moving down right to left).

That's exactly i would read a two page spread in a physical manga book.

I think this will help explain the problems presented in the manga flipping
the first shows how comicrack currently displays manga

the seconds shows how manga is supposed to be read with the pages flipped.

I hope this clears some things up.
