Please help: Moon+ Reader Pro's image zoom

I MUST be missing something. I am so frustrated with Moon+ Reader right now. I use a lot of books with small pictures in line with text: Harry Potter, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, etc. Whenever a picture is large enough to cover most of a screen, trying to turn the page results in MoonReader popping up a round blue zoom button. Tapping the screen again takes me SOMEWHERE IN THE TWILIGHT ZONE, which might be my ... gallery? or the image viewer in moon reader. It looks like a gallery; black background with all the images in the book lined up at the bottom. Getting out of it requires a lot of backing up.

It is SO frustrating, and some of the kids that use my devices just aren't savvy enough to figure out what to do.

Can I turn off the image viewer? Do I just have to change the page turning controls? It's pretty annoying to set the controls to buttons, because my motorola xoom doesn't really have any buttons to speak of.

Thanks for any help in advance!

Is anyone having the same problem? If it's only me, maybe it's a device issue...

You aren't alone. I love Moon Reader, but it does have some quirks, and this is one of them. I read a lot of historical fiction and biography with maps, and have yet to figure out how to get the zoom to work.

The developer is very nice and responsive, so you might want to email him. I will as well.

Sorry to revive a moribund thread, but was there any resolution on this? I'm having the same kinds of zooming problems and haven't found a solution, even in the latest update.

What kind of zooming problems are you having? It's been quite a while back since tapping on a picture gives a zoom button.

When I tap on a picture, I don't get a zoom button. If I long-press a picture, I get taken to a gallery of all pictures in the book. From there, I can swipe from image to image and pinch zoom each one. However, it always puts me on the first image in the book, not the one I was long-pressing.

This is on Moon+ Reader Pro 2.6.8 on a Kindle Fire HDX.

I don't have that behavior on my Nexus 7. It brings up whatever image I long press on and from there I can go thru all the images. After I go thru all the images it brings me back to the image I started from. Maybe it's a problem with a specific book?

Nope. This happens on all my books. But the real problem in my opinion is that it goes into the gallery thing at all - I just want to zoom the image I'm looking at, not browse all images in the book.

If I only want to look at the one image, I just use the back button to get back to the book.

I wouldn't mind doing that, if the long press took me to my image. But it always takes me to the first image in the book. Since the book is often a newspaper with dozens of images, that can be a real pain.

Sounds like I've hit a bug, so I'll email the dev. Thanks, PL, I wouldn't have gotten this far without your info!
