"Simple but Frustrating to use"
You can view text.
1. You can't adjust font size and page size separately. 2. It's extremely hard to tell what page you are on even though page numbers change according to what size your at. 3. You can't tell if your sentence wraps around to the next paragraph on the same page or if you should scroll down to a possible continuation of said paragraph. 4. There is no way possible to view 1 full page at a time, it will only let you increase text size so that you will only see 1/2 a page at like 90 point font. The letters need to be extremely huge to read just 1/2 page. Like I said they give you no way to adjust page size and font separately. 5. It is extremely limited on settings. 6. Because of it's poor layout it's hard to tell where you need to continue reading unless what you are reading obviously continues up and to the right. Otherwise its impossible to tell if you should scroll down to the next page (which is not actually a page but another window with pages within it) or if you should look up & over.
It sucks big time. Its a very simple software program but it's also too vague and ambitious at the same time. I've seen better digital readers written back in 1990s DOS. Sort of a bad sign that Adobe is perhaps losing touch with form & function. What's obvious to their programmers isn't always obvious to the actual users, specially when they offer us nonsense like this Adobe Digital Editions. Don't throw away your time with this program.
