page turn effect

Paul Snakes 6 років тому оновлено Alin Alexandru Matei 6 років тому 13
Hi
I am checking my app in the new player... but I found some bugs: the player screen went black for a couple of times, and warning messages appeared saying "books element not found", "register element not found".. etc.

I got also some timeout problems when uploading the app; and then downloading it to the player gave me the error "page 2 was not possible to unzip with zipper since file could not be found.."

Besides, I have an 8 frames animation (made of png files) that runs very slowly on the player, though it works fine on the Builder InteractMode of my laptop... I wanted to know if future player updates will set this also for the apps that will have been already published...

Finally I miss a feature that had been released on version 3.2 and then removed in version 3.3 (don't know why, since I think it was an improvement): if you had a png object with transparent areas; you could select the objects underneath if you tapped on the empty (transparent) zones of the object above. If you tapped on the "filled" zone instead, you selected that object. I found it really useful when you had; e.g; frames showing rasterized text imported as a png; next to an illustration: even if the text-object frame covered partially the illustration, you could still select the illustration if you tapped in an empty zone of the object frame above.

I send you an image to illustrate this:  



The text of the image is a single png image with an empty area left on purpouse to fit the illustration on it.
The lizard is another png object, put underneath the text. On version 3.2 it was possible to tap the image through the empty area of the text image. On version 3.3 it was not possible anymore. For me this was a critical feature, since most of the illustration on my book are put in this way, and they should be "tapable"

Thanks
Pablo

Could you send the app to ezra@interactstudios.com so we can check to see what is wrong with it.
For the situation explained with the image: You can have a transparent element on top of the lizard that will trigger the wanted behaviors.
I forgot: I can't see the page effect working on the shared version on the player... besides, which is the difference Curl up-down / up / down? is it referred to the upper / lower corners that curl? and right to left / left to right? I would like to select the typical page curl found in much books; on the left to right sense of reading (european / american one) which option should I choose?
The difference is: 
a) If you choose to Curl up-down, when you'll go to prev page the page will turn with curl down effect. If you go to the next page the page will turn with curl up effect.
b) If you choose to Curl up or down, this effect will be the same even if you turn the prev or next page.

Hi Alin, thanks for your reply

I have to publish the app anyway, so I think I will send it straight for that. So the fact that page - curl is not visible in the player doesn't mean it won't be visible on the published version, does it?

I have actually two apps to publish, since I have divided the book in two parts. For the first one I'd like you to manage it, as part of the membership fee... but if I want to manage the second part myself, what should I do? 

If I want the app to be published as a stand-alone (the work is for a client that actually prefer to have it ready to download-play; without maybe having to download the player) you make it also? the app performance will be the same?

Thank you
Pablo

As for the transparent-area-are-not-selectable feature; is just a suggestion, in case you could recover it for a next update. I think I'll post it under suggestions ; )
Here I had already commented it: http://feedback.interactbuilder.com/topic/296127-in-builder-png-objects-are-not-selectable-anymore-clicking-on-the-empty-areas-of-the-selection-box-is-it-the-same-after-publishing/
Hi Alin
I have already shared the app with you. I have noticed, when I tried to open it on the iPad, that one issue I got with the previous player version reappeared: mi app is in portrait mode, and if user has the ipad in landscape mode, opening the app causes it to appear in portrait mode... but it appears with the upper half of the screen black; and in the other half it appears half of the book first page; making it impossible to go to the next page. After a while, it goes fullscreen, but sometimes it keeps stuck to the first page.
I was able to recreate this situation, a solution at this moment is to always open your app when you visualize the bookshelf in the mode of your app. So for example if your app is in portrait mode, try opening your app when you have the bookshelf in portrait mode. After you opened the app, you can change the portrait mode to landscape mode and it will work.

I have found the same solution. As for the transparent image box overlapping another and making it non selectable; I have solved it creating empty graphic objects (therefore, invisible) placing them over the overlapping areas and applying them the same action as the image... I found the creation of empty graphic objects very usefull to create "hidden" buttons, just hope you won't remove this capability of empty graphic boxes to work as actual objects! : ))

I have sent you 2 hrs ago my first book to publish, but I have just found something not working that can be solved simply deleting one object; can I resend the app to you before you manage the publication, in order to substitute it?

thank you!
Pablo
Send the updated app to ezra@interactstudios.com and write down all the details about it. Thank you for the feedback.
Hi Alin. You mean I send you the app folder via dropbox? or should I simply share it with ezra and you make the publication from it? by the way, I have just sent to Publish my other app (not the updated version of the first, but the second, about plants). This is supposed to fall out the $299 fee that includes only 1 publication / year; but apparently, I could send it without having to pay the extra $99... how / when should I arrange the payment? I'd like you to manage the publication of both apps through all the platforms. Thank you ; )
(Roi is my other google profile, I'm Pablo / Paul Snakes)
Guys; I think I'll have to re-send you both apps to publish: the one of the plants has another mistake: title should go in English: "Flora of the Atlantic Islands of Galicia" ! I'll resend it with the right name. Sorry!
