I know this has more to do with the standardized CBZ format than Comicrack itself. But having used Comixology on my android I find it invaluable to use their "Guided Mode".

It made me wonder if it is possible with the current standard to include in the zip an ini file say "panels.ini" which would contain a list of all the boundings of the panels to add support for PxP(panel by panel) viewing to any readers that CHOOSE to opt in without breaking the ability of non supporting readers to render the document.

I imagine the file for say this would read something like
{001}
Page1=3
x1=0
y1=46
page2=3
x2=801
y2=335

{002}
Page1=3
x1=62
y1=354
page2=3
x2=292
y2=838

{003}
Page1=3
x1=304
y1=354
page2=3
x2=530
y2=838

{004}
Page1=3
x1=538
y1=354
page2=3
x2=736
y2=838

{005}
Page1=3
x1=66
y1=858
page2=3
x2=386
y2=1170

{006}
Page1=3
x1=400
y1=858
page2=3
x2=732
y2=1170

and so forth for each additional page. Obviously an authoring tool that lets you load up a CBZ and just click on the bounds for each successive panel would be better than typing it out like I just did. But I wouldn't expect comicrack to be the ones to build such an app. What I'm really asking is the plausability of such a features inclusion in the standard and if it would break anything that failed to update to the new standard.
