As I often do, I found out this morning that I have been recommending false information. I’ve alway hated Adobe Digital Editions, Adobe’s free ebook reader. It trashed the type and the images. I always recommended deleting it and not allowing it on your computer. This morning I discover that the 2.0 version is a great improvement.
Of course, it’s been out since Sept 2012 & I never noticed
I’m surprised that I haven’t heard of it. Has no one else noticed it either?
Anyway, it now reads embedded fonts. Interestingly, it does not show listed fonts. I made an ePUB for iBooks with several iBook fonts specified. ADE 2.0 appears to be showing the book in Palatino/Helvetica, not Cochin/Gill Sans as specified.
The images are also better. All in all is a much improved piece of ereader software.
