Hi, I am close to finishing my first E-Book project and I need a bit of guideance. I understand that minimum and maximum window settings can be set when the project is compiled. Is there a way to set a custom size to the book when it opens? My goal is to set my E-Book width at a certain size when it is open, then have the max and min options from that. (default) I want my E-Book to be limited to a vertical scroll bar, without having to disable horizontal scroll at compiling.
Any suggestions or pointers would be greatly appreciated.
Depending on how you've designed your ebook disabling the horizontal scroll bar may or may not be a good idea. It depends if you are using a fixed width with either HTML tables or CSS. The other factor is how the resolution of the user's monitor is set--assume that it isn't.
If you do disable the horizontal scroll bar be certain to get it in the hands of as many people as possible with different monitor sizes and resolutions.
Thanks for the advice! I have decided NOT to disable either scroll bar just in case a user has a weird setup. I'll leave the window sizing up to the user. (the book does not need a max window, but I don't want it to open minimized either. If there was an easy way to size the window when the book is opened, I would consider it.)
