ADE is indeed a disgrace to an otherwise respecable company.
You may find that the older version 1.7.2 behaves much better.
Also, try Sony Reader; free download from Sony intended to run with Sony eReaders but works quite happily without.
I prefer ADE1.7.2 to Sony Reader. https://ebookstore.sony.com/download/
There are lots of bugs in ADE2.0 (and 2.0.1). Try replacing ADE2.0 with the older but more reliable v1.7.2.
(You can have them both installed at once if you like.)
Version 1.7.2, it is a little difficult to find, available on Adobe site for Windows and for Mac.
The forum software is sometimes corrupting the link above. There shouldn't be a blank in 'editio ns.html'. The following redirects to the same page: http://tinyurl.com/diged172
Some people have found ADE trying to upgrade automatically.
It appears (not 100% sure) that if you install ADE2.0 as a new install (not as an upgrade) that your 1.7.2 will continue to run.
Probably best to say no if 2.0.x installation asks if you want to migrate your library.
sjpt, thank you for your suggestion! I will try to use an earlier version of ADE.
It's pretty sad that downgrading a product may be the only way it's usable!
