Why is there no retina version of the Adobe Content Viewer.

Can I put in a request for Adobe to create a retina version (HD) of the Adobe Content Viewer please?

 

It doesn't make sense to test pages in an environment which only displays 1024 x 768 rendtions on a retina iPad.

 

Any ideas? Thoughts?

 

Thanks

David

    Adobe Content Viewer will show HD folios and is a retina application. How are you trying to test your folio? If you are using the preview on device feature make sure to select your retina folio rendition in Folio Builder Panel and preview from there. If you preview from the Folio Overlays panel we don't know what size you want and default to SD.

    Are the overlays set to vector? Buttons will always be rasterized. Best bet is to use static art with a no fill/no stroke button over it.

    BTW, I'm not sure what you mean by a non-retina PDF folio. The idea behind using PDF is to create a folio compatible with both retina and non-retina devices. IME, this creates a very nice compromise between the two.

     

    There is no way in the world you should save a 2048x1536 folio as PDF. The file size will be humongous!

    Unless it's absolutely critical I see no reason to do two renditions. As

    for vector MSOs keep in mind that it's all or nothing...kinda.

     

    If it's image heavy you should go with raster but if you have some text

    you want to remain sharp, I came up with a workaround:

    Nicely 'nuanced' approach there Bob, have done something similar for a navigation floating

    over a scrolling frame containing a long slideshow, and can attest it works.
