    Hello Angelo,

    Thank you for your detailed reply. It all makes sense.

    We will, as you suggest, work with landscape single pages and just have to accept that page numbering on the thumbnails will be 'spread numbers' rather than page numbers. This way we can work across the spreads.

    Thank you for your help, very much appreciated and I look forward to trying out PubCoder 4! :-)

    Very best

    Hello Angelo,

    That's great news about Pubcoder 4, I would be very happy to take it for a spin :-)

    Thank you for your response about double page spreads.

    It did indeed work in Apple Books. I had misunderstood how PubCoder treats double page spreads. Based on my new understanding of PubCoder's behaviour when displaying double page spreads, I have a further question...

    How do I view both pages of a double page spread in the stage area of PubCoder at the same time? As well as Galdo's Gift, we have another commission we are working on where we need to design elements across the double page spread and see how the design of both pages work together. I realise we can design elements in a third party application and match those elements in PubCoder but I'm sure I must be missing a setting in PubCoder for viewing double page spreads both in PubCoder and PubReader (where it also only shows single pages).

    I've made a short video here to show what I mean :-)

    I'm a bit worried that I've missed an obvious setting because I haven't seen anyone else query this, so I apologise in advance if I'm being a bit slow :-)

    Thank you

    Trevor Y started the conversation Double Page Spread option.

    I'm looking for a double page spread option in PubCoder. I found an answer that said to uncheck the 'single page' option in the Project Settings. I eventually found this option when I realised it was only available when the export format was switched to 'EPUB3' in the top tool bar. However this has no effect on page numbering, with neither single pages being split into two pages or two separate pages being displayed alongside each other.

    I'm somewhat of a novice when it comes to PubCoder so it could well be that I'm being a bit silly but I can't see a way of working in a double page spread format. This becomes an issue when you want to work across a double page spread (for instance when creating an illustrated children's book) and will want to the target device to recognise the spread as two individual pages (for page numbering and thumbnails).

    My page size is 1024x1152 (2048x1152 for the whole double page spread). We are transposing our children's book Galdo's Gift into PubCoder in order to create an app version.

    Can anyone point towards a solution (I seem to have one of my mental blocks on this one :-) )?

    Thank you.

    I'm having the same issue. Images look richer in my photo editing software than they do when imported into PubCoder. I've tried various colour export options, with and without rSGB colour profile embedded.

    Anyone who can shed light on this?
