Before using this method, please make sure your Supernote device and phone are connected to the same Wi-Fi and that you've enabled Direct Transfer by going to Settings > My Device > Direct Transfer.

Change fonts for EPUBs

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.
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.
Icons in half page view
|Icon||What It Means|
|You are reading the top half of the split page.|
|You are reading the bottom half of the split page.|
|You are reading the left half of the split page.|
|You are reading the right half of the split page.|
These two icons indicate the end of the top half of the split page.
These two icons indicate the end of the left half of the split page.
Note: In Half Page View, the ability to zoom in and out with two fingers is not available.
Pinch to zoom in PDFs
- Place two fingers on the screen.
- Move them apart to zoom in.
- Move them together to zoom out.
When the zoom level exceeds 100%, you can move around the small box situated in the zoom window and watch the text outside the zoom window on the screen move in conjunction with it. To change the zoom level, you can also tap the plus icon or minus icon to increase or decrease by 10% each time.
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.
