    This is an interesting question, I too am using renditions (I have 2 for languages) and can see that each has an images and an audio folder which contains duplicate content. However with the HTML5 version presumably it will only load a single rendition (unless you switch languages in my case where it will reload the page) - so apart from taking up more server space is this an issue? I suspect what you're describing is fundamental to the Pubcoder setup and would be difficult to change...

    I have a follow-up question - is it possible to make an action to hide the app menu, or (even better) show/hide the app menu (like the play/pause video action)?

    I can make an overlay button to show the app menu, but there is no option to make an action to hide the app menu.

    We are concerned about users of our site/app not always knowing to tap to show and hide the app menu and wish to make buttons to help them. We also have pages containing a video that fills the entire page, making it impossible to show/hide the app menu on those pages since any touch plays/pauses the video.

    Thanks for letting me know Angelo - I'm working with both HTML and XPUB export (which will eventually be iOS/Android apps).
    We were investigating the idea of creating our own interface but have now decided to use the default app menu - the localisations (to change language), table of content and thumbnails are all very useful.

    I can't see an action to show the table of contents - I can open the Localisations menu and the App menu but can't see an option for the TOC. Can this be done through javascript as a work around?

    There are quite a few forums posts about this, I found them by searching for 'flash' or 'loading', for example: https://forum.pubcoder.com/209-hidden-objects-showing-breifly-on-load

    It seems like you can add an overlay image that is set to fade on page load...

    In case anyone else wants to know - I submitted a bug report via the link in the documentation, and PubCoder confirmed that's a good place to submit feature requests.

    Thanks Humberto do you mean that you have a workaround? Or do you just add multiple actions to a trigger objects (that's what I'm doing)?

    For example I have a button that needs to show 3 items, so that button has 3 Tap actions to Show - one for each item, all clustered together so they happen simultaneously. I have to create many of these so would be faster if objects were in groups and I only had to create a single 'Show' action.

    I haven't tried this in pubcoder but know that with HTML5 in Tumult Hype I've always found a small pause between loops of audio - to get around this I make the audio longer if possible without increasing file size too much (create the loop in audio software speak) then have short fade ins and out at the end so you don't hear the loop as abruptly.

    Is there somewhere to place PubCoder feature requests?

    I would love to be able to lock the aspect ratio off images so when you change the width in the inspector the height changes in proportion - I often have to work with precise measurements.
