One question that came to mind in reading this discussion was if it would be possible to have the feature present in Acrobat Pro which gives the user the following options for rotating pages:

1. All pages
2. Even pages only
3. Odd pages only
4. Individual page

I have no idea if it would even be possible, or that desirable on the iPad. It does help things when using Acrobat Pro - in fact I've fixed a number of items with incorrectly oriented pages this way.

I'm working now on a Popover Menu that will appear when you're looking at a page in the score. Right now I have the following items:
1) Rotate this page 90°
2) Rotate all pages 90°
--
3) Omit this page. (I have to figure out the best way to allow a user to "un-omit" a page....)

Sounds like it needs a couple more items as per your suggestion:
1) Rotate this page 90°
2) Rotate all pages 90°
3) Rotate even pages 90°
4) Rotate odd pages 90°
--
5) Omit this page

... or something like that. Might be too confusing. I'll have to see how it scans in actual viewing in the app.


Note that rotating *again* any of the rotate items will add 90° to the rotation, so choosing "Rotate this page 90°" twice will have the effect of flipping it upside down.

One point of potential confusion that I would love to get feedback on is this:
If I've already rotated page #3 90°, and then on another page, I select "Rotate all pages 90°", what would you expect to happen to page #3, which had already been rotated?

Page #3 should be rotated 90 degrees again, as "Rotate ALL pages 90 degrees" is selected. That way there is no ambiguity and no excptions to the commands.

Also worth thinking about, in terms of using an iPad to actually play works from – an option to tag pages that shouldn’t be displayed (or an easily-accessible option to display only even pages, or only odd pages), since there is an entire category of works – piano four-hands – where a player will normally read only every other page, and you probably don't want to have to have controls to "skip two pages forward/back" in addition to the usual default of ~ four buttons (skip to: first page/one page back/one page forward/last page).and yes, paging is done by swiping the screen to the left or to the right, as expected. I was more thinking of automated ways of turning the page. As a violinist, I automatically try to think of ways to achieve this sans hands.... Keep a device in one's breast pocket and hit it with the inside of the elbow (naw, that's just crazy-talk!)....

It is in the title of another thread in this exact same forum. viewtopic.php?f=32&t=4936

By any chance is this releasing on Android phones/tablets after the iOS versions are complete?

Let me start off by saying I’m am REALLY excited about this post! I am a huge mac fan. My family has 2 MacBooks, 2 iPhones, and an iPad 2…plus a Time Capsule & an Airport express. I think Mac makes an awesome product because it “just works!” Anyways, given this insight into my life, after I got an iPad 2 about a year ago, I could not WAIT to figure out a way to use it in worship.
