(Feature Request) Page Flip animation?

Post by gate1975mlm » Tue Sep 09, 2014 8:33 pm

Is there any chance in the not to far future you could add a "page flip" animation option for when turning pages in PDF's?

You know like make it look like I am actually holding a magazine and turning the pages where you can see the page curl into the next page.

I attached 2 screenshots in a zip file to give you an idea of what I mean.




Thanks

Hello gate1975mlm,

I will pass this idea to the dev team, but have you seen the Edit -> Preferences -> Full screen -> Page Transition options?
The "Cover", "Uncover" and e.g. "Wipe" options with Left direction look almost as page turning in an actual paper book.

Regards,
Stefan

I actually never knew there was an option for different Page Transition in full screen mode. That's great and will definitely start using these when in full screen mode for sure.. However I was actually talking about having a page turn Transition when in the standard view mode. Would that even be possible to do? Anyway thanks for pointing this out that full screen mode has Page Transition options. I do like some of the Page Transition options but a "page turn/Flip type Transition would be cool too :)

Thanks again :)

Hi gate1975mlm,

we are actually already looking into this. It has some challenges. It's not likely going to happen soon but it IS on the radar.

I'm using version 310.0
Some page transitions in full screen mode work... Some others hang PDF xchange editor and I have to restart the program again.. Do you experience the same issue?

Just for instance, "Wipe" or "glitter" hang the software as soon as I click on them.

"Fade" works fine instead.

P.S. : would it be possible (in full screen mode) to show more pages on the screen and scroll freely them left to right or top to bottom? When working it is quite easy to jump from a page to another if I have to highlight something that is in the top or the bottom margin of a page...

Hello attorianzo,

Thank you for the post. We are able to reproduce the issue here and an internal development ticket (RT-2763) has been created to help track the status of this issue. As for the pages view, please see the link below:

Great, works.

The scrolling double page option is even a better solution than page flip and works perfectly.

Thanks

Would it be possible to add, among the "full screen options", the possibility to choose there the standard way to display pages? I always have to push the scrolling double page shortcut anytime I change modality.
