I love the Electric Zine Maker so much. Is there any way to rotate panels to be horizontal, or is that a possible feature to be included in the future?

This tool is very useful and fun to use!
Btw if you're planning to add more templates then there's Pocketfold- a zine template by Matt Kay, It's on itch.io too!
y u no linux?
Hi! This tool is amazing! But I have trouble using it on mac, the "e" key toggles the emoji keyboard and the "d" keyboard toggles dictation. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks!
I had SOOO much fun messing with this tool and I can't wait to try out more with it :)
Here's my first zine about fish:
i absolutely love this program, but i'm struggling with the limitation on sizes... any chance of templates for simple bifold-and-staple books using multiple sheets of paper? these little guys aren't as readable as i'd like for some things with more text. maybe an 8 page one and a 16 page one for starters? i honestly want to use this for layout on everything, it's so much more intuitive than fancy design programs.
I would like to also put my vote in for this zine format! I am using "pro" programs to make these and miss out on all of the features and nice experience of EZM. I love EZM so much! (Also please add in zine-wide font remembering to save me clicks)
this program sparks immense joy and reminds me of how fun. theinternet used to be when I was eight
i made one!!! its not rlly good but idk here https://claudialeffie.itch.io/is-dracula-a-furry-garbage-academy-vol1
Thanks to you, I made my very first zine! I wasn't in time for the 2nd jam, but I finished it! Your program is truly wonderful and magical! <3
I think Igor needs help… What do we do? D:
obsessed w this. any chance we may get a mod eintended for single larger images, because i LOOOVE using this to make effects and backgrounds for my illustrations
I actually never thought of that before lol. That's a good suggestion. I'll note it down in the (very long) to-do list.
Thank you! I'm happy you like it that much!!
This is really cool! I'm excited something like this exists in this day and age. It's been fun to use and I'm looking forward to posting something done in it! Thanks for making this!
that zine is beautiful! i love the glitch art. yes i added it. thank u for sharing!!
i think the zine doesn't support romanian diacritics (special characters). otherwise, fantastic work !!
I absolutely adore this program. I got it in a bundle and since then new templates have been added and it's just wonderful. I do have a request. Is there a way to make a seizure-safe version of this? I enjoy the animated deep-fried pixel art aesthetic but some friends of mine who would make GREAT zines probably can't safely look at these graphics. But I want to be able to share this with them because it is SO GOOD
yes ive noticed this too - have to use google chrome for everyhting. also cant figure out how to change the template to 16 pages rather than 8!! do we do that by inspecting element???
Will there be a Linux version? I just recently switched to Linux and I'd love to keep using this!
following this! +1
I want to make a zine abt queer love really hoping for a linux version <3
Love what you did with the page design. Mind share the codes?
hi I just posted a zine i made with electric zine maker called adorations for apathy and another called corn is god. Thank you for the software and all your awesome creations (Everything is going to be ok was my introduction to your work, and lives not just on my desktop but also in my heart!)
Hey my friend is stuck, there's a pop up window and it's all grey and no way to get back to the zine maker (not even to force quit it). The popup window came from the image overlay tool. Any tips on how he should proceed?
Is adboe really needed to run the Zine maker?
No absolutely not required. What system are you on? Is this Windows??
Oh ok. Iḿ using linux mint : )
oh thank you! that's really good to know!! i JUST got a new Windows machine and plan on installing Linux so i can finally troubleshoot and get Linux users something that actually works.
thanks much for the answer.
Hey! did u manage to make it work on linux? :3
whats a zine
It's like a mini homemade magazine. Search zine on Wikipedia to learn more.
thank u for making this! i've made a couple of cute zines with it and i keep telling other ppl to try it. i think it's important for zines to be fun to make and a normal image editor isn't much fun even if you don't have to wrestle with it as often (the wressling is also fun). un, thanks again :)
I like this game a lot :D only problem i have is about the colors. The colors kept changing every time i switched tools or something. Now i can't change the color back to black because now it's stuck as grey.
I found out how to fix it :D very fun game i say :]
EDIT: Is this actually a game though?
The "better halftones" effect is a bit dangerous - it lets me choose values that lock up the CPU too easily right now!
When you try to export a pdf book of the normal accordion template the pages are all small. Is there any fix to this issue?
OK this is pretty amazing! Any chance at a couple more "retro" type features?
- Cut around imported images with "scissors" with slight shadow effect to give the impression it was thrown through a copy machine ala 80's zines
- Maybe a per-image "newspaper" filter (make image look like cut out newspaper)
Keep up the great work!
I got this error: application descriptor not found.
I am running this or trying to through WINE since the itchio desktop on linux integrates with it and everytime i try to launch it, I get that popup
I made a zine with this back in November that I've recently put up on my profile! I love this program :)
made my first zine with this :D its so fun!!!
I just uploaded my first ever zine made with this lovely program!! It's on my profile, and I can't wait to make more!! Lots of love
Hi there! I recently discovered Electric Zine Maker and I fell in love at a first sight, so here I am, making my own zines. You're more than welcome to take a look at my profile. T here is only one, but it's just the beginning. Thank you very much! :)
do you need adobe air for this to work :) since its just popped up saying it does :c
Saving isn't working for me. I'm on Windows. It creates the myZine folder, but it's empty. Exporting seems to work, though.
I figured it out, it was something to do with Avast antivirus. Disabling that has made it work. Sorry to bother you.
i think i just figured it out. let me know if this works...
if you are using Avast, then Avast blocks saving.
you need to add EZM as an exception. here is how: https://www.minitool.com/news/avast-add-exception.html
let me know if this works, thank you.
weee also swag game lmao
