This is a pain - i was reading something in Appendix in portrait mode and had to change orientation as there was lot of text. Nw the page focus is gone! The code is open source - request users with knowledge to fix it.

This bug is still open. I just tried it on Vaarainjärvi and when switching between landscape and portrait mode there is another page shown. I suppose that the program only remembers the scroll position which obviously is different for the whole document in a given orientation. Mika

I informed the developers on github. I'll have a look on the source also myself but as I am rather a newbie to qml this might be difficult.
