Aldiko 2 image and text formatting issues

I tried Aldiko Premium 2.0 and 2.0.1 on my Nexus S phone running Android 2.3.3. Aldiko 2 has image and text formatting issues that were not present in version 1.

All ebook images, including book covers, are displayed at full size rather than reduced to fit the screen with zoom option like in version 1. This looks ugly and reduces usability.

Further, checking an ebook that Aldiko 1 displayed perfectly, I found regressions in Aldiko 2 ePub rendering. An ebook illustration caption that Aldiko 1 correctly displayed centered and italicized is instead formatted as plain, justified text by Aldiko 2. Also, for indented paragraphs that have extra left margin, Aldiko 2 uses the same left text margin as the rest of the ebook. I created that ebook, and it passes two ePub validators including epubcheck. And I did check the Aldiko setting for using the book CSS.

Finally, the bottom menu displayed when touching the phone's Menu button while displaying an ebook is partially cropped at the bottom on the Nexus S screen.

Can anybody confirm these issues?

I'm having the same issue. Aldiko 1.0 was awesome, and once I came back to transferring our Indesign files for ePub, Aldiko 2.0 came out and ruined everything!

There used to be a function to hold one finger on an image to zoom in and see it full size, but that seems gone, and the images get cut and are terribly ugly

If anyone has a solution I'd love to hear it

Aldiko 1 was indeed awesome, and Aldiko 2 screwed up. All that the Aldiko tech support is able to suggest is to downgrade.

I wonder why they willingly removed those great features. They boast Adobe DRM support in Aldiko 2, which i don't give a damn for.

It's indeed a hard market. My boss (with logical reason) wants our ePubs to be able to display as formatted in InDesign.

It seems to be working fine on iPad (minus some bullet alignment and messy fonts that must be solved in CSS) But because Android is so open sources and there are so many free e-readers for all android platforms....it is going to definitely be a problem to ensure that our clients who have Android phones/tablets will see it as intended
