As a new and already disappointed user of Adobe Digital Editions I would like to highlight the problems I have encountered.
If anyone can help me with these it would be great. Adobe Help sent me to the forums...
If you can resolve these sort of issues then I can see Digital Edition being a great resource for Academics, Teachers and Students.
ADE's limitations are spelled out in its HELP section. It is intended for
individual users and pleasure reading, not adademicians or heavy users of
research materials. So in that sense, you are correct in 'exposing' its
limitations. Simply put, I think you've chosen the wrong tool, but the
tool you chose works wonderfully within its parameters. And although I
have no connection with Adobe, I doubt very much that they would consider
expanding ADE's capabilities to cover your scenario. They have enough
challenges keeping up with the technology within their envelope.
Most libraries use Overdrive software, and that may do the trick for you.
There are other offerings available that you could try, such as Calibre or
Bluefire Reader, that may have fewer limitations in your environment. Many
academic communities I know of use other software as well. I'd contact
the library/sources that you're dealing with and see if there's an
alternative that will work better for you.
Thanks for clarifying and solving my problems. I guess I figured biggest is
best, and I didn't think I wanted do anything that out of the ordinary -
buying books, downloading free ones and archiving according them to name
