How to scroll?
« on: March 20, 2017, 10:50:22 AM »
I use a Android Device for my songs (pdf) and use it in landscape All text is on one page. Now I scroll with a finger when I play, but want a pedal to scroll with. What gear can I use? How do you solve that folks?

In looking at the documentation, the pedal is simulating a PageDown command. That's not the same as scrolling. The pedal is expecting you have multi-page PDFs, but in your case "all text is on one page". So I'm doubting it will solve your problem.

There are apps like SongBook where you can program in the scroll rate for each song.

My bet is you will need either an app which supports scrolling, or break up your PDFs into multiple pages so the pedal can turn the page for you.

Yes I suspect that. Guess I have to keep use my thump as a scrolltool. But maybee a pagedown function will work if it parts the page in two? What do you think about that? Mabybee i can miss a line or two?
