I've been trying to resize the window while reading The Contemplative Pastor to just the right size to see two pages side-by-side which roughly correspond to the actual print pages. I don't care to have the page breaks exactly the same as in the print book, but I want to try to replicate the experience of reading a print-based book as much as possible.

The one flaw in the current implementation is that places where a hard page break is forced in the print-based book (e.g., at the beginning of a new chapter) do not force a column break in column view, and they should. Surely the Logos layout engine knows when it is encountering a new chapter and could break the column there. I wouldn't think it would require any additional tagging in the resource to accomplish this, right?

Ditto, Rosie!

Or even better, give us an "export to Kindle!"

Just had to get that in there. Smile
