It has been said that architects should be forced to live in the buildings they design; likewise, programmers should be forced to use the software they create.  I wonder if anyone at Adobe has actually tried using ADE to read something?  It's infuriating to use.  The fonts are ugly.  The response is slow.  But I'm forced to use this program because my university library now only provides this version as opposed to the simple PDF version I enjoyed before.  Is there any way to export to a PDF so I don't have to use your awful software?

I was hoping that there was another option. This software is so terrible that using a PDF version of the book is worse than the EPUB format. I would have thought they could get the PDF right. There's no support for touch-screen navigation. So I'm forced to use mouse or try to touch the tiny scroll bar to navigate. 

 

Not even the keyboard options work correctly. This is what happens when a single company has 100% control over the system. Without competition, they don't even bother to produce a usable product. It's so infuriating that I'd rather spend the hundreds of dollars to buy physical books than to use the free e-books. 

 

For all of their nickle and diming (and several hundred dollaring) their customers to death, I'm surprised they don't at least offer a half-usable version for a price. This is shameful.
