  • Feature android, wheel mouse support, viewing PDF files

    I use the android version on an android stick. I use a wheel mouse for most interactions and rarely a keyboard.
    Many applications support scrolling using a wheel mouse, such as dropbox PDF viewer, and web browsers.
    I do not seem to get any response to the wheel mouse when using Foxit android viewer.
    A common situation that works for me in other applications is a page of PDF, expanded to fill width on a wide screen.
    In this case i must scroll by small amounts down the page while reading.
    Currently i can drag the page down by pressing and holding the left mouse button.
    The scroll wheel mouse would be ideal, and perhaps not very hard to add support.

    one more thought, a menu button to manually switch between landscape and portrait would also be great. I can put my widescreen TV vertical but the android does not support switching to portrait, since it is not a phone there is no sensor to cause the screen to rotate.

        thanks re scroll mouse.

        I tried the landscape/portrait control, but it has no effect. Maybe it is that the android operating system was built without support for rotation, so perhaps not an issue with your app.
