Where can I find the "EPUB section" of the settings? If it's under the Settings gear icon to the far right, then I don't have it on Essentials. I also checked under the Themes and Display icons, but couldn't find any checkbox.
Unfortunately, I do believe there are a lot of features missing in the Essentials version. The Notes Manager is the most prominent but I remember scouring the Mantano website for an in-depth feature comparison between the various versions and found that simple settings such as customizable tap zones is missing from the Essentials version so I bought the Premium version instead. If you still can, return Mantano Reader Essentials and buy Mantano Reader Premium instead.

Thanks DiapDealer. This is helpful. I'm doing the same thing you are and am not getting the checkbox to switch from 2- to 1-column in landscape mode.

Thanks. Mantano kindly cancelled my order so that I could get a refund and purchase the Premium version instead. It definitely has a lot of extra features not available in the Essentials version, including the ability to switch from 2-column to 1-column in landscape mode. Nice!

Something I've noticed in the new 2.4 version of Mantano Premium, suddenly books I've made (validated epub2) that have images for titlepages right after the cover page are not displaying those images in the new version. Same code is used for both too! I just get a blank white page after the cover image and then it goes to the text version of the titlepage which is annoying.

Everything was working fine on v2.3.18. Guess I'm going to be reverting to that APK.

Mantano is my favorite reading app, but it will bug the heck out of me not to see the beautiful titlepage images that I have for some of the epubs I've made. I have no idea what changed to introduce the problem, but it's not my epubs, because they are all still showing the titlepage images fine in ADE, Aldiko, Overdrive, Nook, Moonreader, Cool Reader, FBReader, etc... and also on my Sony and Kobo e-ink readers.

I hope it gets fixed in the next version. I really loved showing off my epubs to friends with this app.

@graycyn,

I can't say I'm noticing any problems. I searched out 2 books:
  1. a calibre SVG cover page followed by a second SVG (similar code to first) with an alternate cover
  2. a calibre SVG cover page followed by a simple B&W image title page, similar to
    Code:
    <p class="center"><img src="images/tpage.jpg" alt="" /></p>
both books look OK to me. How do you have yours coded?

The coding is essentially the same for both cover and title page images. They are svg cover page code done in Sigil. Code acquired from MobileRead. I use the svg for both so the title images scale to screen size and center vertically. The small difference is that I took out a calibre reference to cover in the head section from the title page.

Cover and titlepage images are both PNG, both with identical dimensions.

I noticed the issue today, when I put a book on my new Nexus 7, which has the latest version of Mantano. The same thing happens on my Nook HD+ running Mantano Premium 2.4.

Putting the identical file on my phone running 2.3.18 and the title page images show up fine, just as they always have. And as I say, work in all my other testing apps as well as e-ink devices.

I have no idea what changed in Mantano to cause this quirk and it especially makes no sense given that the cover image shows up fine. I also sometimes use the svg code for full page images and I have a book that shows an image at the end of the chapter OK, the cover OK, but not the title page image. Works fine in version 2.3.18, just not in v2.4.

Mantano has always been the app I feel is most reliable for showing CSS as intended, so it was a bit of a shock to see the new version having an issue with displaying my books.

I've got a lot of books that have that same setup: full-screen svg cover followed immediately by a full-screen svg title page. The only difference being that they're both are jpegs instead of pngs (and they're not identical sizes). They all work as expected in 2.4.

Clearly you're running up against a bug of some kind (perhaps in the handling of the PNG format?), but I can't seem to duplicate it. Hopefully it gets fixed for you in an update sooner, rather than later.

Exclamation Margins setup

Please someone a look at this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltl3nv0C09I

Is this feature available in Mantano reader, since I can't find any info about margin setting in feature list on mantano site ?

This is main reason I don't like reading pdf's on my tablet. So if you want one more customer...impress me !

Yes, Mantano can remove/minimize the margins in pdfs. Works very well. Automatic or manual settings. Also reflow for some pdfs.

Why does Mantano keep disappearing from my Prestigio 10" tablet? I keep having to reinstall it from SlideME, which is where I bought it from. The last time it even marked it as incompatible with my device, but I was nevertheless able to install it and use it.

No idea. It sounds a bit like the Prestigio is having a factory reset performed, which will wipe out any apps you added.

This doesn't happen to any other app, only Mantano. It's quite annoying, as I find it a great app for my academic papers. :-(

It looks to me like Mantano is no longer available from the SlideMe store (but I could be wrong). Maybe that's part of the problem? If you're no longer getting any updates for the app from SlideMe, is it possible that you're just stuck with an older, buggy version? I'm on v2.4.0 of Mantano Premium.

Or maybe it's just a problem with the SlideMe App Store's install/update process? I've never experienced apps disappearing when using the Google Play App Store.

I own the Amazon version and never had an issue. I think they stop using SlideMe a long time ago so the version they have is way out of date. Mantano has been totally redesigned since then. It's almost like a whole new app.
