    Do any of these features already exist on ADE?

    amerie333

      Nesting bookshelves

      Search function for finding books on book shelves

      Search function for finding text in books

      Search function for finding text in notes

      Unlimited number of characters in notes

      Moving bookshelves around in library

      Allow cut and paste between text and notes

      Allow notes attached to pages of scanned files, or allow bookmark titles to wrap and be really long.

       

      If these features don't exist, I'd like to request them.

       

      Thank you,

          You can check the HELP section of ADE to see what features are included in

          ADE 2.0.

           

          The forum is just users.  Some Adobe employees do cruise it, but there's no

          direct link between the forum and Adobe.  You can go to Adobe itself and

          post suggestions for additional features....

            No, there is no search functionality from the Library view.

             

            >Search function for finding text in books

            Inside a book, yes, inside all of your books, no.

             

            > Search function for finding text in notes

            No.   (although you can fake this by doing a grep on the annotations directory)

             

            > Unlimited number of characters in notes

             

            No, limited by design

             

            > Moving bookshelves around in library

            No.

             

            >Allow cut and paste between text and notes

            Yes - permissions allowing.  but only from the document to the notes

              How does one request or suggest a feature for a future upgrade? I followed a path of links in under Adobe Customer Care that looked as though they might lead to the right place, but they led me back here, exactly where I started!

               

              I have the newest upgrade, but as a librarian and a generally organized literate person, not having the ability to sort my bookshelves by the bookshelf names is driving me up the wall! And I'd give my eye teeth to be able to sort authors' names by the surname, then the forenames, then the book titles within each surname/forename. It is also essential to sort book titles by the first significant word, ignoring initial articles. Until Adobe catches on to the way literate people think about authors' names and about titles, has anyone hacked a work-around for these problems?

                If most of you books are DRM-free, then I suggest the use of the free Calibre (http://calibre-ebook.com/); though as a librarian you probably already know about it.

                I am not sure it will do all that you want, but it is vastly superior to ADE in almost every way, and has an active community and is responsive to change.
