Beekeeping #1

A few minor bugs slipped through the first beta. So this is a house keeping build that fixes some of those issues. 

What’s fixed

  • On iPads with enough horizontal space, the article helper view is aligned to the right. I’m still figuring out how to work this in RTL modes.
  • When an article specifies a linebreak, Elytra’s text engine added extra space before and after the linebreak view. This is no longer the case.
  • Fixed an odd line-spacing bug that popped up in iOS 11.3.1.
  • Fixed 11.3.1’s kerning bug.
  • Foot links scroll jump to section has been fixed where it never flashed the background colour to indicate the highlighted paragraph.  
  • Fixed a not so rare crash that would occur when removing an article from your bookmarks. 
  • Improvements to Attributions controller. 



  • Version: 1.0.0
  • Build 69.
  • Pipe: Beta-02
