In big epub files (Delphi Classics Series, the biggest one being the complete works of Charles Dickens at around 61 megabyte) the pop-up menu doesn't work, you tap and hold on a word and the menu pops up but you can't tap on define, translate, etc. it's sort of a glitch I think. I reproduced this bug with 6 or 7 files and it happened every time and tested the books with several other e-readers and it worked just fine.

It seems that it's got something to do with the Whole-Book Page Numbering setting, unchecked it and everything works fine with big books with thousands of pages.

I think it'll work even with whole-book page numbering turned on, if you give MapleRead enough time to finish the page numbering background process. When it's done, the (whole-book) percentage displayed turns into a page number.

Note that this whole-book page numbering business actually counts the real number of layout-dependent (including font size) pages like iBooks. Many other apps support only ADE page numbers, which basically just count the number of characters, regardless of layout, which thus may give you the same ADE page number when you "flip" to the next page.

Thank you so much cedhax, turned on the whole-book page numbering and left the book open for 5 minutes and everything works fine now.

When can we expect to see ADE page numbering?

That sounds a lot longer than I thought though. I have never experienced such a long delay. Perhaps you really get a very long book running on a slow device? Just wonder how long it would take iBooks to do the same thing, as iBooks initially blocks you from even reading when it computes the page numbers.

It's a really large epub file, 60 Mbs, 24000 pages with lots of images, and the device is an iPad mini 3.

No wonder! It seems that your book is about 50 times as thick as a book rendered in about 500 pages (number of pages roughly matching print version) I recently read with MapleRead SE on my iPad Air 2. It only takes a few seconds of background processing.

Bug in latest version

I've noticed a new bug in the latest version of MapleRead. When I open a book from the library, MapleRead now shows both the usual book header info as well as the iOS header info at the same time. If I tap the centre of the screen twice, the iOS info is removed from being displayed incorrectly while reading the book, however, if I page through the book without tapping the centre screen to "refresh" the display, both sets of info are displayed in the header area. I have attached a screenshot of this bug in action. Please look at the top of the image to see what I'm talking about.

@slantybard - Thanks for your bug report.

With a different book, I can now reproduce the screenshot like what you posted above. However, I can always get rid of the iOS status bar (the one on top with the clock) when I toggle the toolbar by tapping the screen center twice. Locking the screen and restarting the app seem to make the bug show up less frequently. I have never seen this bug before with MapleRead I wonder if this is yet another side effect of iOS 10.3.3 and the latest iOS SDK. Anyway, now that I can reproduce the bug, it should be much easier to find the fix.
