I was looking forward to the Black Friday All-Access Deal in order to start reading back chapters of a few of your manga series, but after giving the reader a try, there are a few things that make reading more difficult than it needs to be.

1) Easier way to zoom in/out: One of the threads from about a month back states that the '5' and '-' keys do this, but they didn't work for me. I'm personally partial to HJKL (next, zoom in or scroll down, zoom out or scroll up, previous), but the up/down arrow keys might be another option, since those currently don't seem to do anything either. I've just noticed that using Ctrl-Scroll wheel zooms in and out, but it's much too slow, which brings me to my second suggestion.

2) Remember zoom level when advancing to next page: This could be done by either opening the next page at whatever zoom level the user had set on the last page, or by providing an option to fill height or fill width that could work for either one or two page mode, rather than always defaulting to the current fill height that the reader currently uses.

Hopefully, the reader gets even better, so I can get an All-Access membership without hesitation, but until then, I can bide my time with the current offerings.

I just started using the manga reader and I noticed these exact same problems. Seeing as how these issues were brought up in 2013 and it's now 2016, is all hope lost for any improvements to the reader?

Actually, there is hope. It's more a matter of when they release generally, and what exactly they are doing with it. Premium Plus members should be seeing something different...
