I'd like to request a feature I know from reading manga on online readers with autopager.
When you scroll, native behaviour isn't for page to jump from one to another, but, that page will smoothly appear below previous one
Here's what it looks like in adobe reader:

    While I agree that this would be an appealing feature, implementing it would require some changes to the core layout, and as such be rather tricky. Due to time constraints, I cannot promise to work on this any time soon. Sorry.

     
  • I was about to ask for this feature as well.. Shame you can't work on it but thanks for developping mcomix anyway; maybe you could have a look at how it is implemented in qcomicbook, although it might be done in qt4.

    Did you consider to resemble the scrolling method of the Thumbnails sidebar?

      Another reason to use the Thumbnails sidebar, of Comix, is to have SVG images scaled properly instead of pixelized.

      P.S. Thumbnails sidebar of Comix, by itself, should be restored, it is much better than the one of MComix, IMHO.

      Icons are from http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Cheser+Icons?content=113386 (actual size is 16x16).

    This is actually a pretty good idea I haven't thought about before. That would take away some of the most problematic parts such as scrolling, rendering and most of the memory management headaches, at the least. The biggest issue is still the overall amount of development and debugging effort required to implement such a feature. Unfortunately, I'm currently not in a position to spare this time, so it will have to wait for someone else to pick it up, or possibly some moment in the future.

      I hate it when the most simple approaches are so close, but, unintentionally, ignored. I am glad I could contribute to the record.

      Please, if you need someone for debugging, I am willing to dedicate time.
