You know, like on the iphone app or on most ebook apps – where you can just click the next page, instead of scrolling vertically. Is that an option on the computer app?

Thanks,

Nikki

Yes. It is called "Reading View." Click the arrow next to the icon of your book and click on "Show Reading View." In windows, this is F11. A down arrow will turn to the next page, a right arrow to a parallel resource (if available).

Wow, thanks for answering so fast!! Do you know if there is any way to set it so that it doesn't go into a full screen mode?

Yes. If you hit Spacebar, it should move down. Shift+Spacebar will take you back a page.

Another way is Gestures. In the command box, type "set use gestures to yes" and hit enter. Then hold down the right mouse button while you swipe. The downside of this is that no one but me likes gestures, so they are being deprecated and may not last forever. 

You can get more help on Keyboard shortcuts here

More gestures are here.

I am reading your question differently, so let me take a stab. Page turn mode is enabled when a resource is set to columns greater than "none." Click on the book cover menu and look for the columns Setting.

I never noticed that this works when columns are set to "1," so I'm glad you showed up. That is nifty.
