Please make a windows 10 tablets compatible version. Yacreader library and reader are fantastic but useless with windows 10 tactil hardware!

Yeah, I know this limitation.

The idea is to develop a new app for browsing/read in windows tablets. But so far I don't have enough free time for doing it...

Any progress on this topic? Stuck using ComicRack which hasn't been updated in forever, but it does provide touch screen navigation on a windows tablet.

I'm looking at getting a Surface Pro as my next mobile device. I would love to use the YACreader app with that. Will I encounter issues?

The UI is not really suitable for touch screens. My plan is to create a specific version for touch screens on windows compatible with the current libraries, no ETA yet.

A new reader would be nice. But can't see why a simple solution be added to the current reader. Can't two bounding boxes be placed in front of the managa page on the reader. And when a touch event is detected inside either box, instigate a page turn. I am not that advanced of a programer, so I may be worng. But that does not sound hard to code in at all.

I just discovered this app and this is literally the only reason I can't use it. It's a shame because there aren't really that many alternatives that have built-in Library features. I currently use ComicRack but the code is so messy that my Surface doesn't like to play well with it.

I think all that would need to be done is allow you to map a keyboard shortcut with the mouse; i.e. Next Page = Left Mouse Click, Previous Page = Double Left Mouse Click. It doesn't need to be as intuitive as swiping features in the app, just enough to get us by until you can create something better. Please, I really want to use your program.

The Microsoft Surface is one of the best devices to read comics on due to its size and aspect ratio so it is a shame there is as yet no native touch support. Not sure if its been mentioned before but this is the workaround I'm using.
Firstly the UI needs scaling;
1. Right click the running reader app then right click again the YACreader and choose properties
2. Under the compatibility tab click the "Change high DPI settings" button
3. Enable the "Program DPI" check box
4. Enable the "High DPI scaling override" check box and select System (enhanced) from the drop down
5. OK and exit out
This should make the UI size larger and easier to use

Secondly to enable touch support download the free app GestureSign from the the Microsoft store.
This will allow you to map touch gestures to actions and keystrokes in the YACreader app.
I have the following gestures mapped;
  • Two finger swipe left sends the right arrow keystroke, type "{RIGHT}" in the sendkeys text box
  • Two finger swipe right sends the left arrow keystroke, type "{LEFT}" in the sendkeys text box
  • Two finger tap sends the f keystroke, to enable/disable fullscreen, type "f" in the sendkeys text box
  • Three finger tap sends the i keystroke, to enable/disable page count, type "i" in the sendkeys text box
(note: see docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/syst...end?view=netcore-3.1 for the format of other keys you might want to enter)
Thats all I really need to get by, it would be nice to have pinch to zoom but that probably needs support in the app itself.
Also, if you two finger swipe up from the bottom you get a page by page cover flow to browse through the comic which is useful.
Anyway hope that helps someone out.
