Half Page View for PDF documents
If you find the text in the PDF document too small to read, you can utilize the Half Page View feature to make the text larger and improve your reading experience.
Update: The Half Page View isn't available on A6 X2 Nomad and is replaced with the horizontal mode. You can rotate your A6 X2 Nomad to horizontal mode by turning it sideways.
How to enter half page view
- Open a PDF document.
- Tap the three-dot More menu on the toolbar (when it's docked at the top/bottom of the screen). If it's docked on the left/right side of the screen, this step will be skipped.
- To enter the half page view, tap in landscape orientation or in portrait orientation. This will split the pages into two halves (left half and right half, or top half and bottom half).
- When in the half page view, the icon turns into or respectively. Tap on it again to switch back to the full page view.

If you don't need the zoom window during your reading sessions, you can close it by tapping the “X” icon in the upper-right corner of the zoom window. You can make it reappear by starting to zoom again or turning pages.
