can we reset articles positions at the opening of a folio?

Aug 11, 2011 12:24 AM

When you read a folio, you are moving in articles and the position of each article is memorized.

 

I'd like to reset articles positions each time you open the folio.

 

Is there a parameter somewhere for the folio builder ?

    Not that I know of. Right now the only way to reset a folio is to triple tap the title in the upper navigation bar.

    An excellent question and a feature that I and others would love to see.  I know a question about bookmarks was asked a few days ago and Bob answered that it's a feature they are looking at....

    Stands to reason that if bookmarks are implemented than some sort of reader 'prefs' might be possible as well.  Would be excellent to have all articles reset to the top page and the folio start at the beginning.  In Folio Builder a default could be selected, then a viewer could override with their own prefs within the app.

     

    EDIT:  Bob, Nice tip on the triple tap!

    I need this feature also and it's important for educational classroom/multi-user environments. A timing feature where the application would go back to the cover page, first page, or even the splash screen after a set time would also be useful.  (and let the back button take the user back to his/her page) We are publishing reading books and when different children pick up the reader or pass it on etc. we want it to be like picking a book off the shelf.

    Welcome back!

     

    I saw your feature request go through. Let's hope they add a Reset button that's more obvious than the triple-tap method. I've been asking for this feature for a long time, but it tends to get lost in the shuffle.

    Bob B, as I'm sure you recall this was a feature request as far back as 18 months ago during the prerelesae period and still nothing has come of it!
