Recommended Cdisplay Settings

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the tips, I was having some trouble using the progam effectively. It really is much better than any of the general purpose programs for viewing jpg's; much sharper and clearer.

So I accidently deleted a load of recently downloaded magazines - ones I had converted to PDF and spent some time doing so.. I thought about going back to CBR and trying to sort it out to my liking to save a load of hassle :)

I've got CDisplay better setup now, however it's not perfect - the main reason I switched from CBR readers in the first place was the two-page layout. CBR readers put the front cover and page two together - screwing up the continuity when flicking forwards and backwards two pages at a time.. Do any CBR readers have an option to change this?

So, in CDisplay there's a trick to getting the pages properly facing. If you skip to an even page number, say 2 or 4 (skipping the ads in some mags), the rest of the magazine will be fine. If you were to jump forwards two pages from the beginning, the order'll be messed up. I've replaced the middle mouse button to enable page jumping. Just type in 2 or 4 and hit enter.

Here's my settings for a nice two-page setup:

Image Sizing Options

Only check 'Display Two Pages'

Colour Balance and Yellow Reduction

Nothing checked

Program Settings

Only check 'Zooming', 'Diasble Hints', 'Forward Two Pages', 'Backwards Two Pages',

'Background Colour'=Black, 'Small Cursor', 'Page Buffer'=8

Mouse Control

Change Middle Button to 'Go To Page'

Other Tips:

View mags in full screen - press W and it'll always keep this setting. Press Esc to close when you're finished reading.

EDIT: I've just found there's an app called CDisplayEx.. The .exe download is on the SourceForge page. I'll try it out later tonight.

and if you are using a widescreen monitor (as I am), CDisplay is EVEN better! :happy:

I second that! I don't know wtf I was thinking with my old monitor!(LCD's rule)

Not to mention LCD is more friendly on your power bill and desk space :)

Those are nice tips for CDisplay, thanks! I will give it a try.

I was searching for a Windows program to view CBR today and most people seem to recommend CDisplay.

I tried it and didn't like it much. So, I was searching for another one and I found ComicRack.

ComicRack looks much better and easier to use in my opinion.

For those that don't already know, just want to point out that there are other CBR/CBZ/CBA/CB7 ...etc viewers available out there.
