I need help with Adobe Digital Editions. I understand that the acsm file isn't the ebook and that it produces a pdf version of the book. And yet, when I open the pdf file, it just produces 200 blank pages using Preview in Apple. How can I read these books in PDF format as Adobe digital Editions doesn't let me zoom in and out of the books. All the features are greyed out. It is hard to read the book in tiny print.
Hi, what program are you using to try and view the pdf? Adobe DE?
Ok thanks for the reply. I wasn't sure if your pdf was completely blank of whether you can't read it because the text was tiny. Now I understand. I think! 🙂
It sounds to me like the pdf you have isn't well constructed? Where did you get it from?
I purchased an ebook in .acsm format. The pdf Adobe DE converted from it is blank. Attached is the .acsm format with the options greyed out. That is the maximum size the book opens to and it is a little bit small for me to read comfortably.
Thanks for the idea. I opened the pdf in Adobe DE and it isn't blank after all. But the options are still greyed out. Attached is the screen shot. Basically the same as the .acsm format.
Ok. Sounds like we may be making progress! A little ha ha. 😁 This might be difficult but would you be able to try to open it on a PC instead of a Mac? You would need to install Adobe DE and then authorize it again? Maybe on a friend's PC? This would narrow the problem down to the eBook itself or the Adobe program.
LOL. Unfortunately, I'm currently travelling and have no access to a PC. I've attached the ebook in PDF format for you to play around with. It opens in Mac Adobe DE but the options are greyed out as usual.
