Stanza iPad PDF low memory crash (deleting books)

Hi there,

Just pulled down the new Stanza with iPad and PDF support.

I have a several pretty large (300MB) PDFs. Apps like GoodReader can handle these with no problems. However, Stanza is crashing from running out of memory.

After a crash, Stanza is deleting the books it hasn't processed yet. So if I upload 200 books via iTunes, maybe three or four of them will actually make it into Stanza.

Crash report attached.

uploading Doc, TXT, or PDF from desktop to be read by Stanza on iPhone

Would there be a step by step description for someone 'new' on how to upload doc, pdf, txt document from your computer to your iPhone, to be then viewed using Stanza on your iPhone? Stanza home page says it's possible, just can't see an obvious way of doing it (lazy, maybe..?).

PDF books opening with random underscores

I have downloaded a PDF book from the internet, and when I have opened it in Stanza desktop, it works fine, except Stanza has inserted an underscore ( _ ) after every letter T and every letter F. Does anyone know what would be causing this and how to remedy it? I'm running Stanza 1, Beta 18 on a Mac with Snow Leopard.

Stanza's use of PDF file is not good enough

Thanks for the Stanza e-book reader, it's a great applicaiton, I love to read e-book with it in my i-phone.

However, there is one drawback with Stanza, it's the use of PDF file on Stanza, for example, when there are several paragraphs on a PDF file, when imported into Stanza, the several paragraphs will merge into one big paragraph, and the info looks crammed and crowded, hard to see clearly.
and if there is picture on original pdf file, it will disappear on Stanza.

Thanks again for this great software, and hope to see it improved along the way.

Chinese language PDF in Stanza?

I took a txt file of a book in Chinese and got it converted to a PDF. It opens fine as a PDF on my computer in Preview, etc., but when I open it up in Stanza Desktop or iPhone it gets all sorts of ugly (encoding issue?). I assume that Stanza doesn't support Chinese, but wanted to double check that that was the case. If anyone knows a workaround, I would appreciate the help!

PDF Import - Question Marks every other character

When I tried to import a PDF file (an Apple programming doc) in Mac Desktop with the latest beta, all I get is garbage like this for the entire content with occasionally readable text:

?#?P?K?O?C?V?K?Q?P ?C?P?F ?6?K?O?K?P?I ?%?N?C?U?U?G?U ????
?.?C?[?Q?W?V ?/?C?P?C?I?G?T ?%?N?C?U?U?G?U ????
?6?T?C?P?U?C?E?V?K?Q?P ?/?C?P?C?I?G?O?G?P?V ?%?N?C?U?U?G?U ????
?%?Q?T?G ?#?P?K?O?C?V?K?Q?P ?4?G?P?F?G?T?K?P?I ?#?T?E?J?K?V?G?E?V?W?T?G ????

When I cut and paste from Apple Preview, it's normal text, but line breaks are missing.

Are there any settings I am missing to import PDFs? Thanks.

missing characters in pdf

I use Stanza version 1.0.0 beta 16 build #1.396, which apparently has expired but is also the newest availble.
I have a 15'' MacBook Pro with OX x 10.5.7 installed. I have an iPhone 3G with OS 3.0 installed.

I converted a .doc to pdf with Acrobat Professional. Everything was fine. I opened the pdf in Stanza Desktop and characters are missing, as far as I can tell consonants when there are two of the same kind following, e.g. "planning" became "planing". However, the error does not occur with every word that has a double consonant.
Any clue?
