Quite a few people have had scrolling issues with ADE2.0/2.0.1 (as you can see looking back in this forum).
For most people (including me), scrolling on ADE2 works fine. I have never seen a satisfactory explanation of where the difference lies.
ADE2.0 and 2.0.1 are riddled with bugs (again look back through this forum),
with no evidence that Adobe has made any attempt to fix them despite V2.0 having been out for about 2 years.
V1.7.2 seems very reliable, and also uses considerably lower computer resources than V2.
The only significant new features of V2.0/2.0.1 seem to be
- multi-vendor support, for vendors that use the Adobe ADEPT DRM mechanism but with their own IDs rather than Adobe IDs
- screen reader support.
If users don't need either of those, save yourself and your users time and effort by suggesting they go straight to v1.7.2.
They can only stay of 1.72 for a limited amount of time before the installation process tries to kick them to 2.0x unless there is something I am missing with the installation that can change that option.
If so how can you keep it from forcing update?
It is odd; someone else was asking the same about 1.7.2 trying to update just a few days ago. ( http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1316400?tstart=0 )
I don't have that problem.
It is quite possible to have 1.7.2 and 2.0 (2.0.1) installed and even running at the same time; registered to the same ID.
I keep 2.0.1 around mainly so I can answer queries on this forum; I never run it in anger.
(though I am usually angry when I try to run it; definitely 'terrible software of the year' award)
For myself I only use 1.7.2, as one of the (many) bugs with 2.0.1 is that it doesn't work with the Sony eReader/Overdrive combination:
my main use is for library books and my wife and I both have a Sony eReaders.
Maybe (just guessing here) having 2.0.1 installed is the reason that my 1.7.2 urns happily and doesn't ask to update.
The whole thing is a complete mess:
eBooks is an application area where it is really important to work smoothly even for very novice users;
but Adobe have created a monster that is very difficult for experienced people to tame.
Has no solution been found for this yet? We use digital edition to test our ebooks and we have to use vesion 2.0 tocheck compatibilty. I need urgent help in getting the scrolling to work in version 2
Right now the scrolling issue that I have dealt with seems to be on Version 2.0.1 / Windows 7 - I will be doing some testing with it today and tomorrow to try to see what I can do to fix it or get it functioning. Right now I have had to have the customer drop back to 1.7.x and it is requesting she update to 2.0.x. Even when we started baseline 1.7.x and then upgraded it was still broken. Originally she just received a brand new laptop that had Windows 7 on it and the installation was fresh 2.0.x - and it was broken right off the start.
I'll try to update with what I find regarding the scrolling issue when I test the process.
Thanks, hope you get a fix. Just to confirm, this user I am supporting also has Windows 7. I have re-installed the entire PC yesterday hoping that would resolve the issue, but as you can see no luck.
I did have 1.7 on the user's PC before the re-install, which worked perfect, but unfortunately, because the company I work for distributes e-books them self's, they need to test them in version 2, so the downgrading option is out of the question.
