View Full Version : Two panel image (in ipad)

01-16-2011, 07:49 PM
I'm an amateur in making epubs with Sigil, but I'm trying to create a book of my friends paintings and writings. I'm trying to have two-panel paintings show properly in horizontal view in ipad. These are 2 seperate portrait images (850x600 pixel)that are supposed to be shown side by side. I created an epub with chapter breaks of text, and then a chapter break that contains the two panel images.Then another chapter break of more text. Depending on what size you have the font on ipad, sometimes the images show properly in horizontal mode. But sometimes the left panel shows on the right side, and the right side panel shows up on the next page, left side. Is there any way of forcing an image to always show on the left side and the next image to show on right side.

I want the my epub to look like first photo, not second

Can't be done.

For iPad/iBook-specific ePub stuff, see Liz Castro's Pigs, Gourds, and Wikis ( She discussed Page Breaks in iBooks 1.2 ( last month, and said: Other possible values for page-break-before include avoid, if you'd rather a page break did not occur right before the element, and the very interesting, but not yet supported left and right, which push the element in question to the first left or right page, respectively. You are looking for "left", which might be implemented some day.
