Menu

Use the menu icon to bring up a bookshelf of all the books currently in the system. Click on a book to bring it to the front. Select "view book" to open the book. Alternatively, use the dropdown menus to go to a book directly.

Reset

If you have got the book into a position where it is difficult to view you may wish to get back to the starting position of the book. Click reset to achieve this.

Rotate

Clicking this icon rotates the book in view by 90 degree increments, so you can click through to 90, 180 and 270 degrees. If you use this tool, you may want to click on reset if it's easier to get back to a standard view that way.

Magnify

This icon brings up a magnifying glass that you can drag around the screen. You can turn it off by clicking the icon again or double-clicking the magnifying glass itself.

Zoom

Clicking on the + icon will zoom in, clicking on the - will zoom out.

Move

If you click the move icon, the move facility will be activated. By clicking and holding down on the book you will be able to move it around your virtual desktop. When you have it in the position you want, click on the move tool again to deselect it.

Navigator

This central panel shows the currently active book as a thumbnail and the top set of arrows page through the book if you find that easier than turning the pages. You can also click and hold to the right of the small book to cycle through the book and click to the left to cycle back. Let go when you see the pages you want and you will snap directly to those pages. If you have two books active you can toggle between them using the arrows at the bottom.

Read

This will bring up a moveable text panel that contains text relevant to the pages. You can resize the text using the plus and minus symbols in the text box and page through the text if there is more than one page. You can leave it up as you navigate through a book and the text will automatically refresh.

Listen

This will play an audio file related to the pages if they have one.
