  • Once the file has loaded, it will display the first page in the primary viewing area, as well as thumbnails of the pages to the right of the main image
Comic loaded in eComic

Note: After the comic has loaded, information about the image being displayed can be seen in the status bar.
Status Bar
  • The first value is the current page number being displayed (this will be the index of the selectable image, and may not correspond with the actual page number listed on the comic image)
  • The second value is the name of the image file.
  • The last option (the icon on the far right) tells about the archive which eComic has opened. If it is a CBR/CBZ file, it will display the mime-type icon for those file types. If it is a directory, it will display a directory icon, and if it does not know what type of file has been opened, it will display an unknown file icon.
