4.1 update, Horrible background pattern

Every time a page loads you get the transparancy carbon grid. This never happened pre 4.1 How do I revert this? It looks horrible.

Every single time you go to a new page or load more of the current page you see these transparancy blocks as the page is loading. 

I rather have a white BG or parts popping up than see this ugly grid every time.

How do i change this?

Hi, 

When you build your app in Mag+ Publish you can select what background you want in your app.

No its the loading pattern. Whenever the magazine loads you get this as loading pattern. Even on pages where we have backgrounds. 

It used to be a white loading screen, now you see this carbon grid.

Please see attached image. This pattern shows up anywhere where ive got an image/ filled shape/ video. Very annoying to see. 

Need to get rid of this asap.

Yes thats exactly what i mean. For me its completely ruining the smooth experience we had in last versions. 

This is holding back our magazine as we are done and suddenly with 4.1 this happened.

Can we get an answer to this asap so we can publish?

URGENT: When the device shows the grid, it looks like its taking a long time to register what graphics to put ontop. This causes mine (and 3 other iPads) to crash. We are using iPad 1 and iPad 2. 

VERY annoying how the Magplus Reviewer keeps doing this at every update!

Hey guys,

At the moment this pattern is used to notify the user that something is being loaded. Otherwise it will just show as blank. To make objects load faster you can group them. We are looking into how this can be changed for future updates.

Anders, 

Please let it just show as blank. Or give us the choice. I cannot imagine that 1 designer in the world who uses Magplus would choose this pattern instead of a blank background.

How soon are you able to give us a solution for this? Because we are holding the magazine back until this is fixed at the moment.

Is there absolutely no way to avoid this background for now by selecting different options or?

Is the issue present in the published apps or just the viewer app?

I've noticed that when opening a publication created in v4.0 in the 4.1 viewer app it still gets the horrid background and I dare not update the application to v4.1 if it will inherit this silly checked background.

It doesnt seem to be present in published apps (published before 4.1). Will this grey background still show once an app is Live or is it just showing like this in the Mag+ Reviewer?

We are also holding the magazine back until this is fixed. I know that many readers will be complaining and will think that its their iPads messing up.

@Mariya you are forced to update to 4.1 as apps published after the release date of 4.1 are demanded to be 4.1 supported.

 

It indeed doesnt show up in magazines pre 4.1 they show the white, grey or any chosen background. It shows up only on post 4.1 published magazines. I dont understand whats the hold up, just let us use the old white one.

Anders how long do you think we have to wait for this issue to get fixed? Because designers are holding back their issue because of this.

@info Our app has been published already as 4.0 and we are still considering if we are going to update to 4.1. The client has requested for unique landscape and portrait orientation support which is only available with 4.1 but I'm quite positive that they will not like the checked background however briefly it shows.  

Any new information as to when the issue is going to be addressed?
