Thanks so much. I tried it first thing in the morning. Result: if i select Newspaper (Zeitung) instead of magazine, Viewer Bilder does not support a landscape image neither. Here is a screenshot:
Both options Newspaper and Magazine require a portrait image (96 x 128 pixels).
(above shown: a generic cover with transparency. (96 x 128 pixels, upper part transpararent)
After the shadow is applied in newstand:
The shadow applied by Apple is sort of a bummer for this workaround. And it looks kinda hideous.
Any clues or workarounds? Thanks so much in advance,
We are currently experiencing exactly the same issue:
Our landscape only DPS app (newsstand, multi folio, in-app purchases, direct entitlement) seems to be picking the portrait thumbnail of the most recent folio, no matter what we try.
We selected "Newspaper" in app builder, but that seems to have no effect on which thumbnail is chosen.
Has there been any solution to this?
