Registry hack for PDF landscape mode?

I am just wondering if anyone familiar with Adobe Reader Mobile SDK can think of such a registry setting?

I don't know if someone else has noticed, but I did notice for less than one second, when I change the rotation for a PDF file, it became "fit width" first. But only last for a blink, then it changed to this stupid "fit height/page" view.

Just before rescaling to fit the screen, you occasionally see the rotated page in the previous (portrait) zoom level. It's not a landscape 'fit width' though it may look a bit like that.

The upcoming release will provide zooming/panning options for PDF, so with a bit of patience you'll get what you're looking for.

Thanks for the clarification, especially from an IREX developer!

By the way, I am very curious about how PDF in landscape will be handled in the upcoming firmware release?

OK, a temporary work-around for the DR800 landscape "fit-width" zoom is using soPDF (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=32066). I have tried on some PDFs, the default mode works pretty well. A small drawback is the enlarged file size, but it's much better than nothing before the next firmware release. :-)

Unfortunately files sizes tend to be 20MB and up. How does the DR800SG handle such large files? Is there a limit? Do they take extremely long to load? My Sony once choked on a 50 MB file.

800 is very efficient in opening large PDF files.
