What app on the iPad are you using to view the PDF file?
its pdf HD but i also tried to look at it in ibooks. Any suggestions. I am desperate
sorry was offline for a bit. I opened it in PDF HD. But also tried in ibooks. the ipad is first generation though. It seems some pages look a bit squeezed from the side. No clue why. Any help or thoughts are appreciated.
Try viewing in other PDF readers like the free Adobe Reader app.
I just did a test. I sized an image in Photoshop to 1024 x 768 x 150 ppi, saved as a JPEG file. I created an iPad size page using the Digital Publishing Suite intent, and placed the image at full size (no bleed).
I exported using File > Export > Adobe PDF (Interactive).
I transferred to my iPad with Dropbox, and opened in iBooks and in PDF Reader. Looked exactly the same in each: full bleed with no margins. I made a screen shot (clicked Home and Sleep/Wake button) and emailed it back to my Mac.
Looks exactly the same as the image above. No margins.
Make sure you size your pictures correctly before placing in InDesign.
thanks for getting back. i tried acrobat and it works when i scroll top to bottom ( continues mode) but when i set it as left to righht scrowl under (single page mode) its the same issue.
mhhh ok. That would mean that you cannot crop or move your pic in indesign? which i always do for finding right proportions. I will try what you suggested and see what happens. Still weird that one cannot use indesign picframes to move pic into its place dont you think?
I thought you wanted to view on an iPad not in Acrobat on a desktop computer.
yes correct. i tried adobe reader on the ipad and it worked in the downscroll ( continuous mode) but in the side scroll ( single page mode) it had the bars again.
so i tried what you suggested and changed the actual piture size in photoshop to same proportios but the problem persists. i have no idea why.
it must be something in indesign that is set a certain way that creates the issue. just not sure what it is. Thank you so much though for wrapping your head around this.
Some iPad apps has a small bar on the top of the screen. It reduces the height of the viewing area for 20px. So optimal size is not 1024x768 in those cases. You have to take off 20px from the height... optimal size for portrait documents is then H:1004 x W:768, and for landscape documents W:1024 x H:748...
I think I saw a note somewhere that Adobe DPS is using these values with iOS7.
I think Peterri's answer is probably an explanation of what's happening.
I was confused because you said you were testing in Acrobat, and I assumed you were on a PC/Mac:
"thanks for getting back. i tried acrobat and it works when i scroll top to bottom ( continues mode) but when i set it as left to righht scrowl under (single page mode) its the same issue."
You meant Reader.
I only tested one picture, I wasn't using scrolling.
Thanks for your answer Petteri. That could be it even though in adobe reader
its fine in 'CONTINOUS'mode where u scroll down. But the bars show on the
side in horizontal view when you view in "SINGLE PAGE' and you want to
Its truly weird. I think the best way is still to design it in 1024x768
don't u think? I want it to be full bleed and no white bars though.
Thanks again. Not sure if that¹s it though. Cause in Adobe reader it was
fine in one mode but not in the other as I mentioned before.
It seems it squeezes it when I go into 'SINGLE page' mode.
Also if its juts on this iPad don't you think on any other it should be fine
designed for 1024X768?
