PocketBook Inkpad 2 PDF in landscape mode

Hi,

I am interested in PocketBook Inkpad 2, but I couldn't find info for some specifics.
I read PDFs, and like to read them in landscape mode. How does the Inkpad 2 handle these:
- Can PDFs be read in landscape mode?
- Is there a "one action" way of "turning" to the next part of the page (in PDF and landscape mode)? For example, a Kindle splits a page in 2/3 parts, and if you tap on the bottom, it goes to the next part. Very simple. I am asking this because I saw other readers (Kobo Aura One, IIRC) that don't have this feature and you have to manually scroll - which is a hassle on an e-ink screen.
- Does it add an obscene amount of margins? Can the margins be customized (in PDF mode)? I currently have a 6 inch high-res Kindle, so the size is the main reason for the Inkpad 2, but if it adds huge margins, it won't make such a big difference to a 6 incher...
- When in landscape, can you rotate 180 degrees (so you can hold it both ways)?

Thanks.

Yes, just tap "Next page" and it shows next (or previous) invisible part of the page. It is very comfortable and works well even in multicolumn mode. You may also scroll if you want to center on image or paragraph.

You may specify all margins, and if you want you may have no margins at all (and even "negative" margins when part of content goes out of the screen). It is remebered for each pdf file, and can be set different for even and odd pages.

You can choose each of the four screen orientations.

I think InkPad 2 has exactly the same features.
