Lobster,

This is brilliant! I hadn't realized how much more comfortable I am with traditional book format vs. scrolldown until I saw this.

I've looked at Grant's pdf several times before and never made it through more than a few pages. Thought "Oh that's nice" and quit reading. Just sat here now and read the whole thing cover to cover and thought "What a great read!

Thanks ever so much for pointing this out. Think I will be busy for a while converting pdf's. Very Happy

Cheers, J

Aitch,

I get the same result as you, losing all odd pages after page 5.

However, I have to agree with jrb; this is an excellent idea! Thanks, Lobster!

Weird
I was using Opera and kept getting the load problem, but in Firefox with Noscript/temp allow this page....it works OK, albeit slow turning pages
I think I actually prefer foxit reader with Smokey's original pdf, but....different strokes, eh?

Thanks, Lobster

First time I have seen a really original app for a long time!

Pdf to flash page flip is really, really good. I might even start loving Flash!

Thanks, Lobster, for bringing it to our attention.

When I hit F11 to fill the screen...
How do I get out of that?

If I Zoom to make the text bigger, and the page goes off-screen, how do I scroll?

Hit F11 again

Left click and hold then drag the page with the mouse to bring the appropriate bit into view.
