For my multi-column PDF's I would need to split the pages in some program before syncing to the Aura.

Two questions:
1. If I set the page refresh from 6 to 1 (due to that bug), will that decrease battery time notably?
2. Is it possible to turn off the "Page # of #" in PDF viewing? (Especially in Landscape mode that would be nice)
I haven't seen a noticeable effect on battery life when setting the page refresh to 1. Page turns are a bit slower and it is a bit annoying with the flash each page but after a few pages I no longer really noticed it. After a while though, I went back to using an iPad for PDFs. Even on the Aura, the diagrams in the tech documents were just too hard to read. OTOH, I keep them on my Aura -- hard to read beats not available to read.

David
