Scrolling in Fullscreen Mode w. Touchscreen

Mon Jan 09, 2017 7:00 pm

Hi,

I have a 2-in-1 (yoga 910). I have no problems scrolling using the touchscreen normally, but when I am in full-screen mode I have problems scrolling to the next page of a pdf. It sort of works when I am in laptop mode and I can vertically scroll, but it shakes a lot and will sometimes skip many pages rather than move to the next one. That doesn't matter because I can just use the keyboard, but when I am in tablet mode and the screen is rotated I can't get it to scroll at all. I've tried both horizontally and vertically. Am I doing something wrong, or is it just not possible?

Thanks.

Hi beckyleester,

Thank you for the post. Please go to Edit> Preferences> Full screen and ensure that "Presentation mode" is turned off.

Presentation mode will inhibit many functions, and would likely affect your ability to scroll through a document using the touchscreen.

I hope this helps!

Thanks for the response. It did help, albeit in an unexpected way.

Presentation mode was actually already turned off, but when I tried turning it on I was able tap to move to the next page. This is a huge improvement!

My only problem now is moving to the previous page. Since the 1-finger tap registered as a left-click for the next page, I assumed a 2-finger "right-click" tap would go to the previous page (based on the presentation mode info). Right-clicking with a mouse works, but on the touch-screen I just get a context menu.

Edit: Actually, I realized that I can use "Go To" in the context menu to move to the previous page, so I don't have an issue anymore.

I have with my Windows 10 tablet/laptop convertible and the PDF XChange Editor the same situation like beckyleester:
In full-screen mode scrolling with the usual up/down/left/right swipe is not possible and there doesn't seem to be a setting for it. If "presentation mode" is enabled I can tap the screen to go to the next page. Unfortunately, there is no gesture to go to the previous page. So to navigate back, I have to tap in the lower left corner to bring up the navigation toolbar. It's working, but it is slower than e.g. the (soon to be discontinued) default Win 10 "Reader" app in full screen, where you can scroll in full screen just like in window mode.
I know the mentioned app is very different in functionality - but I really want to use PDF XChange Editor for reading PDFs as well as for working with them. Having a full screen mode that is quick to navigate on a touch screen would do that. Is there a way for me to change settings to achieve that? Or can I hope for an update that makes that possible?

Hi ceneubert,

I've asked the Editor lead developer to give me his thoughts on this. I'll post what he has to say when I get his reply.
