New PDF to HTML5 Viewing Modes

Yesterday, Kieran wrote about New SVG View Mode Options, and today I am pleased to say that we did not forget about expanding the range of modes available to our HTML5 output either.

The options are activated in the same way, by setting org.jpedal.pdf2html.viewMode as a system property or as a key in a map with one of the following values.

Single File Split Spread Mode:

Activated using the value “singlefile_splitspread”. This mode is very similar to single file mode, but with the added enhancement that pages are aligned in the style of an open magazine, with even numbered pages appearing on the left, and odd appearing on the right.

Single File Horizontal Mode:

Activated using the value “singlefile_horizontal”. This mode all pages into a single file and is exactly like single file mode except that the pages are positioned horizontally rather than vertically. It is perfect for mobile or tablet devices where you can easily swipe through pages.

Single File Mode:

Activated using the value “singlefile”. This mode extracts all pages into a single file arranged into a single vertical column. It is perfect for desktop, mobile and tablet devices where you can easily swipe down through pages.

Multi File Mode (default):

Activated using the value “multifile”, or by not setting the flag at all. This mode extracts all pages into individual HTML files. There are a range of navigation bars that can be added to enhance navigation.
