I agree, page rotation is the first feature I found missing in this program. Using a laptop as I do, rotating and holding like a book is natural.
Also missing but not as important, I see no optional page transition effects or auto scroll or anything. If I'm reading a story, it's all about the enjoyment of reading.. continuity and experience.
Although it is better than the previous Acrobat based reader, I still find it still not as good as eReader. As you post above - no full screen. The additional feature I find on eReader that makes reading on a laptop particularly restful, is being able to choose a non-white background (I use parchment) and non black font (I use very dark brown). I find my limit on using Digital Editions is about 30 to 45 minutes before my eyes are really tired. eReader I can use for about 2 hours.
I was excited to find and download this improved and multi tasking reader. The very first thing I found missing was page rotation.
This feature is necessary for the new mini laptops where you read in a book held fashion to get a larger page size.
Until this is added to this program I will be deleting this from my computer and checking every so often for improvements.
Until then the Reader 8 will suffice. That no frills version will work just fine. Nice try. And keep making this software more useable.
