Almost there

As of version 7.7, almost everything about Instapaper has been modernized into an app I want to subscribe to and support for a very long time. There’s only one more issue for me, but it’s significant, and it’s been an issue as long as I can remember: On iPad, the text column width setting fixes the size of the *margins* instead of fixing the width of the text. So when you get it perfect in landscape mode, it’s way too narrow in portrait mode, and when it’s right in portrait mode, it’s too wide in landscape. In the iPad Pro era, it’s very common for me to read in either orientation, and having to adjust the settings every time is annoying. Once this is fixed, there will be nothing about Instapaper I don’t love unconditionally.
