Using OpenLibrary.com. with Digital editions 1.7 I could click on "borrow book" then click "open" and the borrowed book would download directly to Digital Editions.
I upated to 2.0 and that no longer works!
ADOBE support tells me I have to
1) click on the book I want to borrow,
2) click "save as" which saves a file called URLLINK.acsm.
3)THEN I need to leave the programs an open windows explorer and
4)drag the "URLLINK.acsm" file to Adobe Digital Editions 2.0 and finally the borrowed book appears in my library.
1 step with Digital Editions 1.7
3 step process with Digital Editions 2.0.
Is there an easier way?????
You can upgrade (sic) from ADE 2.0 to ADE 1.7.2.
ADE 2.0 introduced quite a large number of functional and usability bugs
If you really want you can install both ADE2.0 and 1.7.2 at the same time.
If you've lost your 1.7.2 install... Version 1.7.2, it is a little difficult to find, available on Adobe site for Windows and for Mac.
