I downloaded the August issue today using the MB app, and have already read it cover to cover.

I noticed that on multiple pages, the text would intrude into the adjacent photos. This made it harder to read, and was visually annoying, especially if the photos had darker colors. This is the first time I have run into this— July’s issue didn’t have the problem.

My question- is this a defect in the digital version? I know sometimes when you export pages from one software package to a form used by another, that the layout can get wonky.

Or is this an intentional layout change, and the print version is the same? If so, please stop doing this!

I’m reading the mag on an iPad Pro, if that matters. Version 6.01 of the App.

Hello Bill,

Can't help you on that from the Forum I'm afraid. I believe the digital edition is provided by an outside supplier.

I suspect the problem may be to do with screen format. I do know that there are constant problems generally in coping with all the different screen formats on digital devices and it may be that in attempting to solve one problem a new one has been created. The issue may resolve itself fairly quickly but i will draw it to the attention of the Editor anyway.

Just had a scan through on my 22" screen and all looks fine to me.

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
