Button Navigation
But in addition, there are many additional features that allow you to navigate:

  • The face indicator can be supplemented with the navigation buttons. Designed for devices with touch control only, but can be used at will and for any others.

  • You can also control navigation with the help of a gamepad or keyboard. The section below describes the keys for navigation.

Menu Navigation

After pressing the button Navigation the menu is opened. This menu allows you to configure navigation-related capabilities and perform the navigation itself. But since the management of the navigation itself through the menu is most likely not convenient, the following sections describe simpler methods of navigation. Here the work of navigation in general is described.

Edge indicator

Edge indicator
This is a special control that marks the sides of the image that are inside the viewport or from its edge. Those. if the right edge of the image is reached, it means that we have reached the right end of the image.

  • Hide not actual buttons affects whether the buttons are hidden On first page, On last page, Previous page or comics, Next page or comics, if they are visible thanks to the two settings above, then when there are no conditions for their operation. For example, when we are on the first page of a comic, the button First page of the comics is not active, if this setting is enabled at this point it will not be displayed in the control.
