Hello,

The problem is about when reading e-books, through your application "Adobe Digital Editions 4.5"
The scrolling speed is very low, and there do not seem to be a setting for changing this.
How do I change the scrolling speed?

Thanks. Ok one more question. 🙂 Are you reading an epub or pdf format book? Also, when I'm reading books I read one page at a time and then click to the next page? Just curious – why are you scrolling?

It is a bought e-book, so I guess epub.

The only time it is possible to read through a page, and then click to the next is for the setting "fit page". This becomes too small to read, so then I have to change to one of the other settings (Like "Fit width"). Then it is no longer possible to click to the next, but scrolling becomes the best option, but the speed is not great

Sorry for the slow reply. Ok I'm still interested in whether it's a pdf or epub.  the When reading the book in Digital editions, is the scrolling bar on the right of the book and vertical, or is it along the bottom of the book and horizontal? Thanks

When reading the bought eBook in Adobe Digital Editions:" Reading" --> "PDF view": Here I am able to change settings, like "Fit Page", "Fit Width", etc. 

When reading the bought eBook in Adobe Digital Editions:" Reading" --> EPUB text size: Here there are several options, like "small", "medium", "large", etc. I am not able to do anything with these settings.

This seems to b a PDF-file, even though it is bought eBook, not a dowloaded PDF-document. When reading other ebooks, they are all quicker, and the available settings are for EPUB, not PDF. Seems therefor that the problem is with the PDF.

An interesting fact: When having the setting: "Fit Page" in the PDF-view, the speed is much faster.

Ok. Interesting. You didn't really say how you scroll though which is what I was after. On windows if I have a pdf file I scroll using a scroll bar on the right which is vertical. If it is an epub book I scroll using a horizontal scroll bar at the bottom of the screen. At least this is what I think I do! Not 100% sure to be honest! But I would be interested in your answer to this and what you see in terms of scroll bars! 😬

There are many reasons for scrolling, if you use the book / document as a reference you tend to scroll and not read every consecutive page from beginning to the end.

I am also facing the same issue.

Specification:

- MacBook Pro (2019)

- Mojave 10.14.6

 

As recommended by other users have tried using the earlier version 3.0 and 2.0. The issue still persists.

Can anybody help or escalate this issue to Engineering team.

You are exactly correct. This is an unacceptable problem for students who have no option but to use digital editions for textbooks and they are taking open-book timed exams that require a fast way to read the e-textbook
