Single column mode for ePub is possible but requires changing the content to include an appropriate Page Template (xpgt), which is far from a satisfying experience.
Continuous is not possible as ADE. The closest you'll get with Adobe DRM content is either the Nook readers on devices (not the desktop version) or other RMSDK based readers such as Bluefire, which will typically animate the swipe gesture, so that you'll see the pages sliding left/right.
You might want to look at the browser plugins such as EPUBReader for Firefox to see if they are more to your liking.
Thank you for the detailed response. I will look at EPUBReader for Firefox. However it does strike me as disappointing and puzzled that Adobe can't implement such simple things, and I don't see what DRM has to do with viewing a page at an other angle so to speak. Might end up getting the Kindle Fire or something, because I need to be able to bookmark and all that. The reason why i want to see a full page only at a time is because I don't see so well. And I find such a simple requirement utterly amazing to be missing from even a simple software. Hope that you could forward this to the adobe team for consideration.
>I don't see what DRM has to do with viewing a page at an other angle so to speak.
It has to do with your choice of Readers. If the content is sold with DRM that works with ADE, then you have your choice of multiple readers (on the desktop - Sony Reader, B&N Nook, ADE... -, and many others on devices).
If the content is sold with DRM that works with Kindle, then your choice is limited to the Kindle readers
If the content is sold without DRM, then it will work in any Reader that supports the content type (EPUB/PDF/Mobi)
Let's ease off on the coffee for a bit. Have you really answered why I atleast can't scroll through an ePub document in ADE? Know what i'm talking about? As I roll the mouse wheel, I would like to see the pages flow from bottom to top. Try it, with a pdf document and see.
In a pdf, it will scroll line by line or thereabout.
In an epub, it snaps to the next page (replacing my entire screen with new content).
Does DRM have anything to do with that, sir?
Looks like i've just answered my own question here. After searching around on the net desperately...
I've just switched to SONY Reader for PC. The software can show me a page in full-screen with just ONE PAGE at 1080p resolution, and I can increase the font size alot more. Also, It has history of what pages I read and so on. I am uninstalling this worthless software known as Adobe Digital Editions.
Everything about it is much faster too and doesn't feel like the flash spinoff that ADE is.
Sorry for bashing, but just speaking the truth.
Yes, there are alternatives to ADE. That doesn't mean it's 'worthless'.
It does library management functions that the SONY software may - or may
not - do. Then, there's Bluefire and Overdrive, etc. You ARE "bashing",
and NOT "speaking the truth".
You must REALLY be FRUSTRATED. The only thing ADE can do that anything else is Read Adobe DRM protected content.
Sony Reader gave me so many more options. Alot of people have the same viewpoint. You are just a fanboy of the software and
have to protect it. Why aren't you running Windows 95 then? Isn't it Not worthless.
Im sure it has some things that Windows 7 can't do like... crash in a BlueScreenOfDeath.
This is terrible. It says in Adobe site that it introduced continuous page view. But can't find it in the s/w ADE. How difficult it is to include that from the Adobe Reader ?
