Get rid of bug after updating ibook
Have to wrap the content in a div and set it on that. The rendition:orientation property seems to work in FXL books as it should. Definitely looks like i Books doesn’t support epub:switch.
The good new is that -webkit-overflow-scrolling: touch; works in FXL epubs This was a highlight tweeted straight from i Bookshttps://twitter.com/fakebaldur/status/261043659754065920 … Haven’t tried facebook sharing as I don’t use facebook. i Books doesn’t seem to support varying page sizes (differing viewport sizes) in FXL documents as the spec seems to allow. Math ML works in my tests but it isn’t working for some.
While there was only about three minutes of the October 23, 2012 Apple event dedicated to i Books and the updates to i Books and i Books Author (you can watch those three minutes on CNET here ), it was enough to create a stir in the #e Prdctn/e Book creator community.
Here is an a collection of responses I have found so far.
It particular, he is listing what markup and CSS works and does not work in i Books 3.0. Exporting the hightlights and the notes as OPML would be an *incredibly* useful feature for writers. IMO i Books 3.0 doesn’t come close to supporting the full EPUB3 FXL specs. Also, the differences in CSS rendering between i Book 3.0’s book/full-screen views and the scrolling view are a bit worrying.
It doesn’t look like i Books supports mixing FXL and reflowable pages like the EPUB3 FXL spec allows. As in, CSS rendering in i Book’s scrolling view behaves a lot more like it would in a web browser.
The good news is that regular reflowable EPUB3 files in i Books now seem to support absolute positioning.At The Digital Reader, Nate Hoffelder (@th Digital Reader) posted “i Books 3.0 Wasn’t Nearly the Update I Expected.” In some ways it is a post-event response to his optimistic pre-event post “i Books 3.0 Coming Next Week – Adds More Support for Epub3.” The bottom line is that Hoffelder is disappointed in the update.The positives include: But at least this app does have access to new dictionaries for German, Spanish, French, Japanese and Simplified Chinese (i OS6 required).Apple’s News app, which was introduced with i OS 9.0, gained a Top Stories section (at least if you are in the US, UK, or Australia).The News app will ask you if you want to add Top Stories to your Favorites when you launch the app after updating to i OS 9.2.
