Publish online: changing scroll direction

When I publish online, the scroll direction appears to be sideways, meaning the user has to press left / right on order to navigate through the pages.

 

The design I'm working on has arrows to direct people to the next page, I'd need to have these horizontal to make sense with how online documents work. But then if the user downloads the file as a PDF, the arrows will be pointing in the wrong direction... seeing as Acrobat / Apple Preview scroll vertically.

 

Is there a way around this? Can I set online docs to scroll vertically instead?

I may be misunderstanding your question/issue, but... if you have arrows on the page, like this "<" and ">" they will take you to the next page in the PDF. Even though the next page is physically below, the arrows have the desired effect, especially when the PDF is downloaded and viewed via Acrobat or Preview. Set the PDF to the view "Single Page Only" and the click will have the desired effect. I've done this with this example. I have such arrows for page to page navigation, download the PDF and you'll see how it works. http://bit.ly/PubOnCollection.
