feature, when a consumer fulfills a book on one device, the book will be
automatically downloaded to all the other devices that belong to this consumer
(activated using the same user ID).

How do I use it with screen reading technology?

Adobe Digital Editions 3.0 and above versions are designed to work with assistive
technologies on Mac and Windows. You must separately install/enable these
applications. Installation instructions can be found on the respective web sites
(JAWS, NVDA, or Window-Eyes on Windows and VoiceOver on Mac). Version 3.0 and above

Why do I need to activate my computer with my Adobe ID?

Some digital publications that you purchase online or check out from a library may
contain digital rights management (DRM) protection that restricts the items from
being shared with others. Digital Editions helps ensure that your eBooks and other
digital publications are not "locked" on one computer. They are assigned to you
through an ID, and can be viewed on any compatible device you own that you activate
with that ID.

What are the requirements to get an Adobe ID?

An Adobe ID is a free and a nonintrusive way of identifying users. You need only
provide a name, country, and e-mail address. You can create your Adobe ID when
prompted within Adobe Digital Editions, or go directly to the Adobe.com, select "My
Adobe" in the top-right corner, then click on “My Adobe ID” and follow the
instructions for creating an Adobe ID.

Note that you create an Adobe ID from a web browser. Once you’ve received
confirmation the Adobe ID is created, then you may close the browser and return to
Adobe Digital Editions, and enter the Adobe ID and password you created.

Your privacy is important to us. Please read our Privacy Policy.

Can I transfer eBooks that I have already purchased or downloaded to another


computer?

Sin título
1.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions anonymously, all the
purchased or borrowed books afterwards belong to that computer.
2.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions with an ID, all the purchased
or borrowed books afterwards belong to that ID.
3.The books downloaded before activation will not be converted.
4.Books can be copied from one device to another device. If two devices are
activated with the same ID, purchased books can be opened on the other device. If
the other device is not activated or if it is activated with another ID, a pop up
window will appear to ask for ID when opening the purchased books. Borrowed books
cannot be opened on another computer regardless its activation status. It is
because that the loan token is not copied.
5.Borrowed books and their loan tokens will be copied when transfer (not copy, this
is an ADE feature) them between computer and device (e-reader).
6.If the permission limits the books to be viewed on only one device, the copied
books will not be able to be opened.

Do I need to activate my computer?

Digital Editions does not require you to activate your computer with an Adobe ID.

Can I activate my computer at a later time?

Digital Editions has an "Authorize this computer" menu item that you can use after
initial installation.

What is the maximum number of computers and devices that I can activate?

You can activate up to six computers and devices. If you reach the limit, contact
Customer Service to reset your activations.

Can I use an alternate ID to access eBooks?

With Digital Editions 4.5.6, you may use other IDs to access an eBook. You may, for
example, access a book from Google with a Google ID (referred to as a Vendor ID),
or a book from Barnes & Noble (referred to as Bookseller ID). This is further
described in the Getting Started eBook installed with Adobe Digital Editions.

Note that you can both authorize your computer with an Adobe ID, and selectively
access individual books with alternate Ids, such as Vendor ID. Adobe Digital
Editions will keep the two separate: if you download an eBook protected using a
Vendor ID or Bookseller ID, then you’ll be prompted to access using that ID.
Otherwise, it will either access to the Adobe ID you’ve authorized your computer
with, or (if you chose not to authorize the computer with an Adobe ID) will
authorize just for use on your computer.

I'm having trouble installing Digital Editions. Where can I get support?

Please review the "Getting started" section on the Adobe Digital Editions home
page, or visit the Customer Service page.

Why do some PDF documents look different in Digital Editions than they do in
Acrobat and Reader?

Digital Editions utilizes Adobe PDF technology that has been optimized for small
code size and lower system requirements. It is optimized for performance and
onscreen readability, rather than graphic arts or prepress-level fidelity. As a
result, some minor differences in graphics and font rendering are to be expected.
In addition, the Digital Editions PDF implementation does not support several
enterprise-oriented PDF features. These features are not typically used in
PDF-based eBooks, and if present, they are ignored but may cause certain documents
to render incorrectly.

What PDF language profile is supported by Adobe Digital Editions?


Digital Editions supports a superset of ISO standard 19005-1 (PDF/A). PDF/A is
designed to support more secure, long-term information archiving; it is based on a
subset of PDF 1.4 (the version of PDF supported by Acrobat 5.0). Additional PDF
capabilities in Digital Editions beyond PDF/A include basic encryption, DRM-based
encryption, JBIG2 image compression, transparency, and compressed object streams.
The intention is to support PDF features reasonably needed by eBooks and other
commercially published content, balancing 100% coverage with a focus on small size
and high performance.

Is Adobe Digital Editions free for me and my customers to use?

Yes, Adobe Digital Editions is a free product.

Can I redistribute Digital Editions from my external website?

No, Digital Editions is not licensed for distribution on external websites. You may
provide a link from your website to access the Adobe Digital Editions download on
adobe.com. Please visit the Permissions and Trademark Guidelines site for more
information.

What is the EPUB format supported by Digital Editions?

EPUB is the file extension of an XML format for reflowable digital books and
publications. It consists of three open standards: Open Publication Structure
(OPS), Open Packaging Format (OPF), and Open Container Format (OCF). EPUB is
produced by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). EPUB allows
publishers to produce and send a single digital publication file through
distribution and offers consumers interoperability between software/hardware for
unencrypted reflowable digital books and other publications.

As a publisher/content distributor, how can I securely distribute content for


consumers to manage and consume via Digital Editions?
Adobe offers a content protection service, Adobe Content Server. Adobe Content
Server is a robust server solution that digitally protects PDF and reflowable EPUB
content for Adobe Digital Editions and supported mobile devices. Easy to integrate
into existing systems using industry standard technologies, Content Server allows
you to host, manage, and deliver files from your existing infrastructure to Digital
Editions users.

Visit the Content Server product site

Can I continue to borrow PDF eBooks from my public library with Digital Editions?
Yes, Digital Editions fully supports Adobe Content Server DRM technology and is
designed to work smoothly with existing library eBook lending services based on the
Adobe Content Server infrastructure.

the device is authorized when it isn’t. After restarting ADE, it will show the
correct authorization state of the device.
•Simultaneously adding *.ACSM files along with *.EPUB/*.PDF files into the same
library on Mac OS X is not recommended. Some *.PDF/ *.EPUB books may not be added
in this case.

Why do I need to activate my computer with my Adobe ID?

Some digital publications that you purchase online or check out from a library may
contain digital rights management (DRM) protection that restricts the items from
being shared with others. Digital Editions helps ensure that your eBooks and other
digital publications are not "locked" on one computer. They are assigned to you
through an ID, and can be viewed on any compatible device you own that you activate
with that ID.

What are the requirements to get an Adobe ID?

An Adobe ID is a free and a nonintrusive way of identifying users. You need only
provide a name, country, and e-mail address. You can create your Adobe ID when
prompted within Adobe Digital Editions, or go directly to the Adobe.com, select "My
Adobe" in the top-right corner, then click on “My Adobe ID” and follow the
instructions for creating an Adobe ID.

Note that you create an Adobe ID from a web browser. Once you’ve received
confirmation the Adobe ID is created, then you may close the browser and return to
Adobe Digital Editions, and enter the Adobe ID and password you created.

Your privacy is important to us. Please read our Privacy Policy.

Can I transfer eBooks that I have already purchased or downloaded to another


computer?

1.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions anonymously, all the
purchased or borrowed books afterwards belong to that computer.
2.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions with an ID, all the purchased
or borrowed books afterwards belong to that ID.
3.The books downloaded before activation will not be converted.
4.Books can be copied from one device to another device. If two devices are
activated with the same ID, purchased books can be opened on the other device. If
the other device is not activated or if it is activated with another ID, a pop up
window will appear to ask for ID when opening the purchased books. Borrowed books
cannot be opened on another computer regardless its activation status. It is
because that the loan token is not copied.
5.Borrowed books and their loan tokens will be copied when transfer (not copy, this
Página 25
Sin título
is an ADE feature) them between computer and device (e-reader).
6.If the permission limits the books to be viewed on only one device, the copied
books will not be able to be opened.
Do I need to activate my computer?

Digital Editions does not require you to activate your computer with an Adobe ID.

Can I activate my computer at a later time?

Digital Editions has an "Authorize this computer" menu item that you can use after
initial installation.

What is the maximum number of computers and devices that I can activate?

You can activate up to six computers and devices. If you reach the limit, contact
Customer Service to reset your activations.

Can I use an alternate ID to access eBooks?

With Digital Editions 4.5.6, you may use other IDs to access an eBook. You may, for
example, access a book from Google with a Google ID (referred to as a Vendor ID),
or a book from Barnes & Noble (referred to as Bookseller ID). This is further
described in the Getting Started eBook installed with Adobe Digital Editions.

Note that you can both authorize your computer with an Adobe ID, and selectively
access individual books with alternate Ids, such as Vendor ID. Adobe Digital
Editions will keep the two separate: if you download an eBook protected using a
Vendor ID or Bookseller ID, then you’ll be prompted to access using that ID.
Otherwise, it will either access to the Adobe ID you’ve authorized your computer
with, or (if you chose not to authorize the computer with an Adobe ID) will
authorize just for use on your computer.

I'm having trouble installing Digital Editions. Where can I get support?

Please review the "Getting started" section on the Adobe Digital Editions home
page, or visit the Customer Service page.

Why do some PDF documents look different in Digital Editions than they do in
Acrobat and Reader?

Digital Editions utilizes Adobe PDF technology that has been optimized for small
code size and lower system requirements. It is optimized for performance and
onscreen readability, rather than graphic arts or prepress-level fidelity. As a
result, some minor differences in graphics and font rendering are to be expected.
In addition, the Digital Editions PDF implementation does not support several
enterprise-oriented PDF features. These features are not typically used in
PDF-based eBooks, and if present, they are ignored but may cause certain documents
to render incorrectly.

What PDF language profile is supported by Adobe Digital Editions?

Digital Editions supports a superset of ISO standard 19005-1 (PDF/A). PDF/A is


designed to support more secure, long-term information archiving; it is based on a
subset of PDF 1.4 (the version of PDF supported by Acrobat 5.0). Additional PDF
capabilities in Digital Editions beyond PDF/A include basic encryption, DRM-based
encryption, JBIG2 image compression, transparency, and compressed object streams.
The intention is to support PDF features reasonably needed by eBooks and other
commercially published content, balancing 100% coverage with a focus on small size
and high performance.

Can I redistribute Digital Editions from my external website?

No, Digital Editions is not licensed for distribution on external websites. You may

What is the EPUB format supported by Digital Editions?

EPUB is the file extension of an XML format for reflowable digital books and
publications. It consists of three open standards: Open Publication Structure
(OPS), Open Packaging Format (OPF), and Open Container Format (OCF). EPUB is
produced by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). EPUB allows
publishers to produce and send a single digital publication file through
distribution and offers consumers interoperability between software/hardware for
unencrypted reflowable digital books and other publications.

As a publisher/content distributor, how can I securely distribute content for


consumers to manage and consume via Digital Editions?
Adobe offers a content protection service, Adobe Content Server. Adobe Content
Server is a robust server solution that digitally protects PDF and reflowable EPUB
content for Adobe Digital Editions and supported mobile devices. Easy to integrate
into existing systems using industry standard technologies, Content Server allows
you to host, manage, and deliver files from your existing infrastructure to Digital
Editions users.

designed to work smoothly with existing library eBook lending services based on the

Why do I need to activate my computer with my Adobe ID?

Some digital publications that you purchase online or check out from a library may
contain digital rights management (DRM) protection that restricts the items from
being shared with others. Digital Editions helps ensure that your eBooks and other
digital publications are not "locked" on one computer. They are assigned to you
through an ID, and can be viewed on any compatible device you own that you activate
with that ID.

What are the requirements to get an Adobe ID?

An Adobe ID is a free and a nonintrusive way of identifying users. You need only
provide a name, country, and e-mail address. You can create your Adobe ID when
prompted within Adobe Digital Editions, or go directly to the Adobe.com, select "My
Adobe" in the top-right corner, then click on “My Adobe ID” and follow the
instructions for creating an Adobe ID.

Note that you create an Adobe ID from a web browser. Once you’ve received
confirmation the Adobe ID is created, then you may close the browser and return to
Adobe Digital Editions, and enter the Adobe ID and password you created.

Your privacy is important to us. Please read our Privacy Policy.

Can I transfer eBooks that I have already purchased or downloaded to another


computer?

1.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions anonymously, all the
purchased or borrowed books afterwards belong to that computer.
2.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions with an ID, all the purchased
or borrowed books afterwards belong to that ID.
3.The books downloaded before activation will not be converted.
4.Books can be copied from one device to another device. If two devices are
activated with the same ID, purchased books can be opened on the other device. If
the other device is not activated or if it is activated with another ID, a pop up
window will appear to ask for ID when opening the purchased books. Borrowed books
cannot be opened on another computer regardless its activation status. It is
because that the loan token is not copied.
5.Borrowed books and their loan tokens will be copied when transfer (not copy, this
is an ADE feature) them between computer and device (e-reader).
6.If the permission limits the books to be viewed on only one device, the copied
books will not be able to be opened.
Do I need to activate my computer?

Digital Editions does not require you to activate your computer with an Adobe ID.

Can I activate my computer at a later time?


Página 45
Sin título

Digital Editions has an "Authorize this computer" menu item that you can use after
initial installation.

What is the maximum number of computers and devices that I can activate?

You can activate up to six computers and devices. If you reach the limit, contact
Customer Service to reset your activations.

Can I use an alternate ID to access eBooks?

With Digital Editions 4.5.6, you may use other IDs to access an eBook. You may, for
example, access a book from Google with a Google ID (referred to as a Vendor ID),
or a book from Barnes & Noble (referred to as Bookseller ID). This is further
described in the Getting Started eBook installed with Adobe Digital Editions.

Note that you can both authorize your computer with an Adobe ID, and selectively
access individual books with alternate Ids, such as Vendor ID. Adobe Digital
Editions will keep the two separate: if you download an eBook protected using a
Vendor ID or Bookseller ID, then you’ll be prompted to access using that ID.

Why do some PDF documents look different in Digital Editions than they do in
Acrobat and Reader?

Digital Editions utilizes Adobe PDF technology that has been optimized for small
code size and lower system requirements. It is optimized for performance and
onscreen readability, rather than graphic arts or prepress-level fidelity. As a
result, some minor differences in graphics and font rendering are to be expected.
In addition, the Digital Editions PDF implementation does not support several
enterprise-oriented PDF features. These features are not typically used in
PDF-based eBooks, and if present, they are ignored but may cause certain documents
to render incorrectly.

What PDF language profile is supported by Adobe Digital Editions?


Digital Editions supports a superset of ISO standard 19005-1 (PDF/A). PDF/A is
designed to support more secure, long-term information archiving; it is based on a
subset of PDF 1.4 (the version of PDF supported by Acrobat 5.0). Additional PDF
capabilities in Digital Editions beyond PDF/A include basic encryption, DRM-based
encryption, JBIG2 image compression, transparency, and compressed object streams.
The intention is to support PDF features reasonably needed by eBooks and other
commercially published content, balancing 100% coverage with a focus on small size
and high performance.

Licensing

To the top

Is Adobe Digital Editions free for me and my customers to use?

Yes, Adobe Digital Editions is a free product.

Can I redistribute Digital Editions from my external website?

No, Digital Editions is not licensed for distribution on external websites. You may
provide a link from your website to access the Adobe Digital Editions download on
adobe.com. Please visit the Permissions and Trademark Guidelines site for more
Página 47

information.

What is the EPUB format supported by Digital Editions?

EPUB is the file extension of an XML format for reflowable digital books and
publications. It consists of three open standards: Open Publication Structure
(OPS), Open Packaging Format (OPF), and Open Container Format (OCF). EPUB is
produced by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). EPUB allows
publishers to produce and send a single digital publication file through
distribution and offers consumers interoperability between software/hardware for
unencrypted reflowable digital books and other publications.

As a publisher/content distributor, how can I securely distribute content for


consumers to manage and consume via Digital Editions?
Adobe offers a content protection service, Adobe Content Server. Adobe Content
Server is a robust server solution that digitally protects PDF and reflowable EPUB
content for Adobe Digital Editions and supported mobile devices. Easy to integrate
into existing systems using industry standard technologies, Content Server allows
you to host, manage, and deliver files from your existing infrastructure to Digital
Editions users.

Visit the Content Server product site

Can I continue to borrow PDF eBooks from my public library with Digital Editions?
Yes, Digital Editions fully supports Adobe Content Server DRM technology and is
designed to work smoothly with existing library eBook lending services based on the
Adobe Content Server infrastructure.

publications. It consists of three open standards: Open Publication Structure
(OPS), Open Packaging Format (OPF), and Open Container Format (OCF). EPUB is

Why do I need to activate my computer with my Adobe ID?

Some digital publications that you purchase online or check out from a library may
contain digital rights management (DRM) protection that restricts the items from
being shared with others. Digital Editions helps ensure that your eBooks and other
digital publications are not "locked" on one computer. They are assigned to you
through an ID, and can be viewed on any compatible device you own that you activate
with that ID.

Página 64
Sin título
What are the requirements to get an Adobe ID?

An Adobe ID is a free and a nonintrusive way of identifying users. You need only
provide a name, country, and e-mail address. You can create your Adobe ID when
prompted within Adobe Digital Editions, or go directly to the Adobe.com, select "My
Adobe" in the top-right corner, then click on “My Adobe ID” and follow the
instructions for creating an Adobe ID.

Note that you create an Adobe ID from a web browser. Once you’ve received
confirmation the Adobe ID is created, then you may close the browser and return to
Adobe Digital Editions, and enter the Adobe ID and password you created.

Your privacy is important to us. Please read our Privacy Policy.

Can I transfer eBooks that I have already purchased or downloaded to another


computer?

1.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions anonymously, all the
purchased or borrowed books afterwards belong to that computer.
2.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions with an ID, all the purchased
or borrowed books afterwards belong to that ID.
3.The books downloaded before activation will not be converted.
4.Books can be copied from one device to another device. If two devices are
activated with the same ID, purchased books can be opened on the other device. If
the other device is not activated or if it is activated with another ID, a pop up
window will appear to ask for ID when opening the purchased books. Borrowed books
cannot be opened on another computer regardless its activation status. It is
because that the loan token is not copied.
5.Borrowed books and their loan tokens will be copied when transfer (not copy, this
is an ADE feature) them between computer and device (e-reader).
6.If the permission limits the books to be viewed on only one device, the copied
books will not be able to be opened.
Do I need to activate my computer?

Digital Editions does not require you to activate your computer with an Adobe ID.

Can I activate my computer at a later time?

Digital Editions has an "Authorize this computer" menu item that you can use after
initial installation.

What is the maximum number of computers and devices that I can activate?

You can activate up to six computers and devices. If you reach the limit, contact
Página 65
Sin título
Customer Service to reset your activations.

Can I use an alternate ID to access eBooks?

With Digital Editions 4.5.6, you may use other IDs to access an eBook. You may, for
example, access a book from Google with a Google ID (referred to as a Vendor ID),
or a book from Barnes & Noble (referred to as Bookseller ID). This is further
described in the Getting Started eBook installed with Adobe Digital Editions.

Note that you can both authorize your computer with an Adobe ID, and selectively
access individual books with alternate Ids, such as Vendor ID. Adobe Digital
Editions will keep the two separate: if you download an eBook protected using a
Vendor ID or Bookseller ID, then you’ll be prompted to access using that ID.
Otherwise, it will either access to the Adobe ID you’ve authorized your computer
with, or (if you chose not to authorize the computer with an Adobe ID) will
authorize just for use on your computer.

Support

To the top

I'm having trouble installing Digital Editions. Where can I get support?

Please review the "Getting started" section on the Adobe Digital Editions home
page, or visit the Customer Service page.

Why do some PDF documents look different in Digital Editions than they do in
Acrobat and Reader?

Digital Editions utilizes Adobe PDF technology that has been optimized for small
code size and lower system requirements. It is optimized for performance and
onscreen readability, rather than graphic arts or prepress-level fidelity. As a
result, some minor differences in graphics and font rendering are to be expected.
In addition, the Digital Editions PDF implementation does not support several
enterprise-oriented PDF features. These features are not typically used in
PDF-based eBooks, and if present, they are ignored but may cause certain documents
Página 66
Sin título
to render incorrectly.

What PDF language profile is supported by Adobe Digital Editions?


Digital Editions supports a superset of ISO standard 19005-1 (PDF/A). PDF/A is
designed to support more secure, long-term information archiving; it is based on a
subset of PDF 1.4 (the version of PDF supported by Acrobat 5.0). Additional PDF
capabilities in Digital Editions beyond PDF/A include basic encryption, DRM-based
encryption, JBIG2 image compression, transparency, and compressed object streams.
The intention is to support PDF features reasonably needed by eBooks and other
commercially published content, balancing 100% coverage with a focus on small size
and high performance.

Licensing

Is Adobe Digital Editions free for me and my customers to use?

Yes, Adobe Digital Editions is a free product.

Can I redistribute Digital Editions from my external website?

What is the EPUB format supported by Digital Editions?

(OPS), Open Packaging Format (OPF), and Open Container Format (OCF). EPUB is

Note that you can both authorize your computer with an Adobe ID, and selectively
access individual books with alternate Ids, such as Vendor ID. Adobe Digital
Editions will keep the two separate: if you download an eBook protected using a
Vendor ID or Bookseller ID, then you’ll be prompted to access using that ID.
Otherwise, it will either access to the Adobe ID you’ve authorized your computer
with, or (if you chose not to authorize the computer with an Adobe ID) will
authorize just for use on your computer.

I'm having trouble installing Digital Editions. Where can I get support?

Please review the "Getting started" section on the Adobe Digital Editions home
page, or visit the Customer Service page.

Why do some PDF documents look different in Digital Editions than they do in
Acrobat and Reader?

Digital Editions utilizes Adobe PDF technology that has been optimized for small
code size and lower system requirements. It is optimized for performance and
onscreen readability, rather than graphic arts or prepress-level fidelity. As a
result, some minor differences in graphics and font rendering are to be expected.
In addition, the Digital Editions PDF implementation does not support several
enterprise-oriented PDF features. These features are not typically used in
PDF-based eBooks, and if present, they are ignored but may cause certain documents
to render incorrectly.

What PDF language profile is supported by Adobe Digital Editions?


Página 76
Sin título
Digital Editions supports a superset of ISO standard 19005-1 (PDF/A). PDF/A is
designed to support more secure, long-term information archiving; it is based on a
subset of PDF 1.4 (the version of PDF supported by Acrobat 5.0). Additional PDF
capabilities in Digital Editions beyond PDF/A include basic encryption, DRM-based
encryption, JBIG2 image compression, transparency, and compressed object streams.
The intention is to support PDF features reasonably needed by eBooks and other
commercially published content, balancing 100% coverage with a focus on small size
and high performance.

Licensing

To the top

Is Adobe Digital Editions free for me and my customers to use?

Yes, Adobe Digital Editions is a free product.

Can I redistribute Digital Editions from my external website?

No, Digital Editions is not licensed for distribution on external websites. You may
provide a link from your website to access the Adobe Digital Editions download on
adobe.com. Please visit the Permissions and Trademark Guidelines site for more
information.

What is the EPUB format supported by Digital Editions?

EPUB is the file extension of an XML format for reflowable digital books and
publications. It consists of three open standards: Open Publication Structure
(OPS), Open Packaging Format (OPF), and Open Container Format (OCF). EPUB is
produced by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). EPUB allows
publishers to produce and send a single digital publication file through
distribution and offers consumers interoperability between software/hardware for
unencrypted reflowable digital books and other publications.

Página 77
Sin título
As a publisher/content distributor, how can I securely distribute content for
consumers to manage and consume via Digital Editions?
Adobe offers a content protection service, Adobe Content Server. Adobe Content
Server is a robust server solution that digitally protects PDF and reflowable EPUB
content for Adobe Digital Editions and supported mobile devices. Easy to integrate
into existing systems using industry standard technologies, Content Server allows
you to host, manage, and deliver files from your existing infrastructure to Digital
Editions users.

Can I continue to borrow PDF eBooks from my public library with Digital Editions?

designed to work smoothly with existing library eBook lending services based on the
Adobe Content Server infrastructure.

Why do I need to activate my computer with my Adobe ID?

Some digital publications that you purchase online or check out from a library may
contain digital rights management (DRM) protection that restricts the items from
being shared with others. Digital Editions helps ensure that your eBooks and other
digital publications are not "locked" on one computer. They are assigned to you
through an ID, and can be viewed on any compatible device you own that you activate
with that ID.

What are the requirements to get an Adobe ID?

An Adobe ID is a free and a nonintrusive way of identifying users. You need only
provide a name, country, and e-mail address. You can create your Adobe ID when
prompted within Adobe Digital Editions, or go directly to the Adobe.com, select "My
Adobe" in the top-right corner, then click on “My Adobe ID” and follow the
instructions for creating an Adobe ID.

Página 84
Sin título
Note that you create an Adobe ID from a web browser. Once you’ve received
confirmation the Adobe ID is created, then you may close the browser and return to
Adobe Digital Editions, and enter the Adobe ID and password you created.

Your privacy is important to us. Please read our Privacy Policy.

Can I transfer eBooks that I have already purchased or downloaded to another


computer?

1.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions anonymously, all the
purchased or borrowed books afterwards belong to that computer.
2.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions with an ID, all the purchased
or borrowed books afterwards belong to that ID.
3.The books downloaded before activation will not be converted.
4.Books can be copied from one device to another device. If two devices are
activated with the same ID, purchased books can be opened on the other device. If
the other device is not activated or if it is activated with another ID, a pop up
window will appear to ask for ID when opening the purchased books. Borrowed books
cannot be opened on another computer regardless its activation status. It is
because that the loan token is not copied.
5.Borrowed books and their loan tokens will be copied when transfer (not copy, this
is an ADE feature) them between computer and device (e-reader).
6.If the permission limits the books to be viewed on only one device, the copied
books will not be able to be opened.

Do I need to activate my computer?

Digital Editions does not require you to activate your computer with an Adobe ID.

Can I activate my computer at a later time?

Digital Editions has an "Authorize this computer" menu item that you can use after
initial installation.

What is the maximum number of computers and devices that I can activate?

You can activate up to six computers and devices. If you reach the limit, contact
Customer Service to reset your activations.

Can I use an alternate ID to access eBooks?

With Digital Editions 4.5.6, you may use other IDs to access an eBook. You may, for
example, access a book from Google with a Google ID (referred to as a Vendor ID),
or a book from Barnes & Noble (referred to as Bookseller ID). This is further
described in the Getting Started eBook installed with Adobe Digital Editions.
Página 85

Note that you can both authorize your computer with an Adobe ID, and selectively
access individual books with alternate Ids, such as Vendor ID. Adobe Digital
Editions will keep the two separate: if you download an eBook protected using a
Vendor ID or Bookseller ID, then you’ll be prompted to access using that ID.

Why do some PDF documents look different in Digital Editions than they do in

Digital Editions utilizes Adobe PDF technology that has been optimized for small

designed to support more secure, long-term information archiving; it is based on a

capabilities in Digital Editions beyond PDF/A include basic encryption, DRM-based

window will appear to ask for ID when opening the purchased books. Borrowed books
cannot be opened on another computer regardless its activation status. It is

5.Borrowed books and their loan tokens will be copied when transfer (not copy, this
is an ADE feature) them between computer and device (e-reader).
6.If the permission limits the books to be viewed on only one device, the copied
books will not be able to be opened.

Do I need to activate my computer?

Digital Editions does not require you to activate your computer with an Adobe ID.

Can I activate my computer at a later time?

Digital Editions has an "Authorize this computer" menu item that you can use after
initial installation.

What is the maximum number of computers and devices that I can activate?

Can I use an alternate ID to access eBooks?

With Digital Editions 4.5.6, you may use other IDs to access an eBook. You may, for
example, access a book from Google with a Google ID (referred to as a Vendor ID),
or a book from Barnes & Noble (referred to as Bookseller ID). This is further
described in the Getting Started eBook installed with Adobe Digital Editions.

Note that you can both authorize your computer with an Adobe ID, and selectively
access individual books with alternate Ids, such as Vendor ID. Adobe Digital
Editions will keep the two separate: if you download an eBook protected using a
Página 95

Vendor ID or Bookseller ID, then you’ll be prompted to access using that ID.
Otherwise, it will either access to the Adobe ID you’ve authorized your computer
with, or (if you chose not to authorize the computer with an Adobe ID) will
authorize just for use on your computer.

I'm having trouble installing Digital Editions. Where can I get support?

Please review the "Getting started" section on the Adobe Digital Editions home
page, or visit the Customer Service page.

Why do some PDF documents look different in Digital Editions than they do in
Acrobat and Reader?

Digital Editions utilizes Adobe PDF technology that has been optimized for small
code size and lower system requirements. It is optimized for performance and
onscreen readability, rather than graphic arts or prepress-level fidelity. As a
result, some minor differences in graphics and font rendering are to be expected.
In addition, the Digital Editions PDF implementation does not support several
enterprise-oriented PDF features. These features are not typically used in
PDF-based eBooks, and if present, they are ignored but may cause certain documents
to render incorrectly.

What PDF language profile is supported by Adobe Digital Editions?


Digital Editions supports a superset of ISO standard 19005-1 (PDF/A). PDF/A is
designed to support more secure, long-term information archiving; it is based on a
subset of PDF 1.4 (the version of PDF supported by Acrobat 5.0). Additional PDF
capabilities in Digital Editions beyond PDF/A include basic encryption, DRM-based
encryption, JBIG2 image compression, transparency, and compressed object streams.
The intention is to support PDF features reasonably needed by eBooks and other
commercially published content, balancing 100% coverage with a focus on small size
and high performance.

Is Adobe Digital Editions free for me and my customers to use?

Yes, Adobe Digital Editions is a free product.

Can I redistribute Digital Editions from my external website?

No, Digital Editions is not licensed for distribution on external websites. You may
provide a link from your website to access the Adobe Digital Editions download on
adobe.com. Please visit the Permissions and Trademark Guidelines site for more
information.

What is the EPUB format supported by Digital Editions?

EPUB is the file extension of an XML format for reflowable digital books and
publications. It consists of three open standards: Open Publication Structure
(OPS), Open Packaging Format (OPF), and Open Container Format (OCF). EPUB is
produced by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). EPUB allows
publishers to produce and send a single digital publication file through
distribution and offers consumers interoperability between software/hardware for
unencrypted reflowable digital books and other publications.

As a publisher/content distributor, how can I securely distribute content for


consumers to manage and consume via Digital Editions?
Adobe offers a content protection service, Adobe Content Server. Adobe Content
Server is a robust server solution that digitally protects PDF and reflowable EPUB
content for Adobe Digital Editions and supported mobile devices. Easy to integrate
into existing systems using industry standard technologies, Content Server allows
you to host, manage, and deliver files from your existing infrastructure to Digital
Editions users.

feature, when a consumer fulfills a book on one device, the book will be
automatically downloaded to all the other devices that belong to this consumer
(activated using the same user ID).

How do I use it with screen reading technology?

Adobe Digital Editions 3.0 and above versions are designed to work with assistive
technologies on Mac and Windows. You must separately install/enable these
applications. Installation instructions can be found on the respective web sites
(JAWS, NVDA, or Window-Eyes on Windows and VoiceOver on Mac). Version 3.0 and above
are designed with support for full keyboard controls (tab navigation and

Why do I need to activate my computer with my Adobe ID?

Some digital publications that you purchase online or check out from a library may
contain digital rights management (DRM) protection that restricts the items from
being shared with others. Digital Editions helps ensure that your eBooks and other
digital publications are not "locked" on one computer. They are assigned to you
through an ID, and can be viewed on any compatible device you own that you activate
with that ID.

What are the requirements to get an Adobe ID?

An Adobe ID is a free and a nonintrusive way of identifying users. You need only
provide a name, country, and e-mail address. You can create your Adobe ID when
prompted within Adobe Digital Editions, or go directly to the Adobe.com, select "My
Adobe" in the top-right corner, then click on “My Adobe ID” and follow the
instructions for creating an Adobe ID.

Note that you create an Adobe ID from a web browser. Once you’ve received
confirmation the Adobe ID is created, then you may close the browser and return to
Adobe Digital Editions, and enter the Adobe ID and password you created.

Your privacy is important to us. Please read our Privacy Policy.

Why do I need to activate my computer with my Adobe ID?

Some digital publications that you purchase online or check out from a library may
contain digital rights management (DRM) protection that restricts the items from
being shared with others. Digital Editions helps ensure that your eBooks and other
digital publications are not "locked" on one computer. They are assigned to you
through an ID, and can be viewed on any compatible device you own that you activate
with that ID.

What are the requirements to get an Adobe ID?

An Adobe ID is a free and a nonintrusive way of identifying users. You need only
provide a name, country, and e-mail address. You can create your Adobe ID when
prompted within Adobe Digital Editions, or go directly to the Adobe.com, select "My
Adobe" in the top-right corner, then click on “My Adobe ID” and follow the
instructions for creating an Adobe ID.

Note that you create an Adobe ID from a web browser. Once you’ve received
confirmation the Adobe ID is created, then you may close the browser and return to
Adobe Digital Editions, and enter the Adobe ID and password you created.

Your privacy is important to us. Please read our Privacy Policy.

Can I transfer eBooks that I have already purchased or downloaded to another


computer?

1.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions anonymously, all the
purchased or borrowed books afterwards belong to that computer.
2.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions with an ID, all the purchased
Página 114
Sin título
or borrowed books afterwards belong to that ID.
3.The books downloaded before activation will not be converted.
4.Books can be copied from one device to another device. If two devices are
activated with the same ID, purchased books can be opened on the other device. If
the other device is not activated or if it is activated with another ID, a pop up
window will appear to ask for ID when opening the purchased books. Borrowed books
cannot be opened on another computer regardless its activation status. It is
because that the loan token is not copied.
5.Borrowed books and their loan tokens will be copied when transfer (not copy, this
is an ADE feature) them between computer and device (e-reader).
6.If the permission limits the books to be viewed on only one device, the copied
books will not be able to be opened.
Do I need to activate my computer?

Digital Editions does not require you to activate your computer with an Adobe ID.

Can I activate my computer at a later time?

Digital Editions has an "Authorize this computer" menu item that you can use after
initial installation.

What is the maximum number of computers and devices that I can activate?

You can activate up to six computers and devices. If you reach the limit, contact
Customer Service to reset your activations.

Can I use an alternate ID to access eBooks?

With Digital Editions 4.5.6, you may use other IDs to access an eBook. You may, for
example, access a book from Google with a Google ID (referred to as a Vendor ID),
or a book from Barnes & Noble (referred to as Bookseller ID). This is further
described in the Getting Started eBook installed with Adobe Digital Editions.

Note that you can both authorize your computer with an Adobe ID, and selectively
access individual books with alternate Ids, such as Vendor ID. Adobe Digital
Editions will keep the two separate: if you download an eBook protected using a
Vendor ID or Bookseller ID, then you’ll be prompted to access using that ID.
Otherwise, it will either access to the Adobe ID you’ve authorized your computer
with, or (if you chose not to authorize the computer with an Adobe ID) will
authorize just for use on your computer.

I'm having trouble installing Digital Editions. Where can I get support?

Please review the "Getting started" section on the Adobe Digital Editions home
page, or visit the Customer Service page.

Why do some PDF documents look different in Digital Editions than they do in
Acrobat and Reader?

Digital Editions utilizes Adobe PDF technology that has been optimized for small
code size and lower system requirements. It is optimized for performance and
onscreen readability, rather than graphic arts or prepress-level fidelity. As a
result, some minor differences in graphics and font rendering are to be expected.
In addition, the Digital Editions PDF implementation does not support several
enterprise-oriented PDF features. These features are not typically used in
PDF-based eBooks, and if present, they are ignored but may cause certain documents
to render incorrectly.

What PDF language profile is supported by Adobe Digital Editions?


Digital Editions supports a superset of ISO standard 19005-1 (PDF/A). PDF/A is
designed to support more secure, long-term information archiving; it is based on a
subset of PDF 1.4 (the version of PDF supported by Acrobat 5.0). Additional PDF
capabilities in Digital Editions beyond PDF/A include basic encryption, DRM-based
encryption, JBIG2 image compression, transparency, and compressed object streams.
The intention is to support PDF features reasonably needed by eBooks and other
commercially published content, balancing 100% coverage with a focus on small size
and high performance.

Is Adobe Digital Editions free for me and my customers to use?

Yes, Adobe Digital Editions is a free product.

Can I redistribute Digital Editions from my external website?

No, Digital Editions is not licensed for distribution on external websites. You may
provide a link from your website to access the Adobe Digital Editions download on
adobe.com. Please visit the Permissions and Trademark Guidelines site for more
information.

What is the EPUB format supported by Digital Editions?

EPUB is the file extension of an XML format for reflowable digital books and
publications. It consists of three open standards: Open Publication Structure
(OPS), Open Packaging Format (OPF), and Open Container Format (OCF). EPUB is
produced by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). EPUB allows
publishers to produce and send a single digital publication file through
distribution and offers consumers interoperability between software/hardware for
unencrypted reflowable digital books and other publications.

As a publisher/content distributor, how can I securely distribute content for


consumers to manage and consume via Digital Editions?
Adobe offers a content protection service, Adobe Content Server. Adobe Content
Server is a robust server solution that digitally protects PDF and reflowable EPUB
content for Adobe Digital Editions and supported mobile devices. Easy to integrate
into existing systems using industry standard technologies, Content Server allows
you to host, manage, and deliver files from your existing infrastructure to Digital
Editions users.

Can I continue to borrow PDF eBooks from my public library with Digital Editions?

designed to work smoothly with existing library eBook lending services based on the
Adobe Content Server infrastructure.

Why do I need to activate my computer with my Adobe ID?

Some digital publications that you purchase online or check out from a library may
contain digital rights management (DRM) protection that restricts the items from
being shared with others. Digital Editions helps ensure that your eBooks and other
digital publications are not "locked" on one computer. They are assigned to you
through an ID, and can be viewed on any compatible device you own that you activate
with that ID.

What are the requirements to get an Adobe ID?

An Adobe ID is a free and a nonintrusive way of identifying users. You need only
provide a name, country, and e-mail address. You can create your Adobe ID when
prompted within Adobe Digital Editions, or go directly to the Adobe.com, select "My
Adobe" in the top-right corner, then click on “My Adobe ID” and follow the
instructions for creating an Adobe ID.

Note that you create an Adobe ID from a web browser. Once you’ve received
confirmation the Adobe ID is created, then you may close the browser and return to
Adobe Digital Editions, and enter the Adobe ID and password you created.

Your privacy is important to us. Please read our Privacy Policy.

Can I transfer eBooks that I have already purchased or downloaded to another


computer?

1.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions anonymously, all the
purchased or borrowed books afterwards belong to that computer.
2.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions with an ID, all the purchased
or borrowed books afterwards belong to that ID.
3.The books downloaded before activation will not be converted.
4.Books can be copied from one device to another device. If two devices are
activated with the same ID, purchased books can be opened on the other device. If
the other device is not activated or if it is activated with another ID, a pop up
window will appear to ask for ID when opening the purchased books. Borrowed books
cannot be opened on another computer regardless its activation status. It is
because that the loan token is not copied.
5.Borrowed books and their loan tokens will be copied when transfer (not copy, this
is an ADE feature) them between computer and device (e-reader).
6.If the permission limits the books to be viewed on only one device, the copied
books will not be able to be opened.

Do I need to activate my computer?

Digital Editions does not require you to activate your computer with an Adobe ID.

Can I activate my computer at a later time?

Digital Editions has an "Authorize this computer" menu item that you can use after
initial installation.

What is the maximum number of computers and devices that I can activate?

You can activate up to six computers and devices. If you reach the limit, contact
Customer Service to reset your activations.

Can I use an alternate ID to access eBooks?

With Digital Editions 4.5.6, you may use other IDs to access an eBook. You may, for
example, access a book from Google with a Google ID (referred to as a Vendor ID),
or a book from Barnes & Noble (referred to as Bookseller ID). This is further
described in the Getting Started eBook installed with Adobe Digital Editions.

Note that you can both authorize your computer with an Adobe ID, and selectively
access individual books with alternate Ids, such as Vendor ID. Adobe Digital
Editions will keep the two separate: if you download an eBook protected using a
Vendor ID or Bookseller ID, then you’ll be prompted to access using that ID.

with, or (if you chose not to authorize the computer with an Adobe ID) will
authorize just for use on your computer.

I'm having trouble installing Digital Editions. Where can I get support?

Please review the "Getting started" section on the Adobe Digital Editions home
page, or visit the Customer Service page.

Why do some PDF documents look different in Digital Editions than they do in
Acrobat and Reader?

Digital Editions utilizes Adobe PDF technology that has been optimized for small
code size and lower system requirements. It is optimized for performance and
onscreen readability, rather than graphic arts or prepress-level fidelity. As a
result, some minor differences in graphics and font rendering are to be expected.
In addition, the Digital Editions PDF implementation does not support several
enterprise-oriented PDF features. These features are not typically used in
PDF-based eBooks, and if present, they are ignored but may cause certain documents
to render incorrectly.

What PDF language profile is supported by Adobe Digital Editions?

Digital Editions supports a superset of ISO standard 19005-1 (PDF/A). PDF/A is


designed to support more secure, long-term information archiving; it is based on a
subset of PDF 1.4 (the version of PDF supported by Acrobat 5.0). Additional PDF
capabilities in Digital Editions beyond PDF/A include basic encryption, DRM-based
encryption, JBIG2 image compression, transparency, and compressed object streams.
The intention is to support PDF features reasonably needed by eBooks and other
commercially published content, balancing 100% coverage with a focus on small size
and high performance.

Can I redistribute Digital Editions from my external website?

No, Digital Editions is not licensed for distribution on external websites. You may
provide a link from your website to access the Adobe Digital Editions download on
adobe.com. Please visit the Permissions and Trademark Guidelines site for more
information.

What is the EPUB format supported by Digital Editions?

EPUB is the file extension of an XML format for reflowable digital books and
publications. It consists of three open standards: Open Publication Structure
(OPS), Open Packaging Format (OPF), and Open Container Format (OCF). EPUB is
produced by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). EPUB allows
publishers to produce and send a single digital publication file through
distribution and offers consumers interoperability between software/hardware for
unencrypted reflowable digital books and other publications.

As a publisher/content distributor, how can I securely distribute content for


consumers to manage and consume via Digital Editions?
Adobe offers a content protection service, Adobe Content Server. Adobe Content
Server is a robust server solution that digitally protects PDF and reflowable EPUB
content for Adobe Digital Editions and supported mobile devices. Easy to integrate
into existing systems using industry standard technologies, Content Server allows
you to host, manage, and deliver files from your existing infrastructure to Digital
Editions users.

Can I continue to borrow PDF eBooks from my public library with Digital Editions?

designed to work smoothly with existing library eBook lending services based on the
Adobe Content Server infrastructure.

Why do I need to activate my computer with my Adobe ID?

Página 153
Sin título
Some digital publications that you purchase online or check out from a library may
contain digital rights management (DRM) protection that restricts the items from
being shared with others. Digital Editions helps ensure that your eBooks and other
digital publications are not "locked" on one computer. They are assigned to you
through an ID, and can be viewed on any compatible device you own that you activate
with that ID.

What are the requirements to get an Adobe ID?

An Adobe ID is a free and a nonintrusive way of identifying users. You need only
provide a name, country, and e-mail address. You can create your Adobe ID when
prompted within Adobe Digital Editions, or go directly to the Adobe.com, select "My
Adobe" in the top-right corner, then click on “My Adobe ID” and follow the
instructions for creating an Adobe ID.

Note that you create an Adobe ID from a web browser. Once you’ve received
confirmation the Adobe ID is created, then you may close the browser and return to
Adobe Digital Editions, and enter the Adobe ID and password you created.

Your privacy is important to us. Please read our Privacy Policy.

Can I transfer eBooks that I have already purchased or downloaded to another


computer?

1.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions anonymously, all the
purchased or borrowed books afterwards belong to that computer.
2.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions with an ID, all the purchased
or borrowed books afterwards belong to that ID.
3.The books downloaded before activation will not be converted.
4.Books can be copied from one device to another device. If two devices are
activated with the same ID, purchased books can be opened on the other device. If
the other device is not activated or if it is activated with another ID, a pop up
window will appear to ask for ID when opening the purchased books. Borrowed books
cannot be opened on another computer regardless its activation status. It is
because that the loan token is not copied.
5.Borrowed books and their loan tokens will be copied when transfer (not copy, this
is an ADE feature) them between computer and device (e-reader).
6.If the permission limits the books to be viewed on only one device, the copied
books will not be able to be opened.

Can I activate my computer at a later time?

Digital Editions has an "Authorize this computer" menu item that you can use after
Página 154
Sin título
initial installation.

What is the maximum number of computers and devices that I can activate?

You can activate up to six computers and devices. If you reach the limit, contact
Customer Service to reset your activations.

Can I use an alternate ID to access eBooks?

example, access a book from Google with a Google ID (referred to as a Vendor ID),
or a book from Barnes & Noble (referred to as Bookseller ID). This is further

I'm having trouble installing Digital Editions. Where can I get support?

Please review the "Getting started" section on the Adobe Digital Editions home
page, or visit the Customer Service page.

Why do some PDF documents look different in Digital Editions than they do in
Acrobat and Reader?
Página 155
Sin título

Digital Editions utilizes Adobe PDF technology that has been optimized for small
code size and lower system requirements. It is optimized for performance and
onscreen readability, rather than graphic arts or prepress-level fidelity. As a
result, some minor differences in graphics and font rendering are to be expected.
In addition, the Digital Editions PDF implementation does not support several
enterprise-oriented PDF features. These features are not typically used in
PDF-based eBooks, and if present, they are ignored but may cause certain documents
to render incorrectly.

What PDF language profile is supported by Adobe Digital Editions?

Digital Editions supports a superset of ISO standard 19005-1 (PDF/A). PDF/A is


designed to support more secure, long-term information archiving; it is based on a
subset of PDF 1.4 (the version of PDF supported by Acrobat 5.0). Additional PDF
capabilities in Digital Editions beyond PDF/A include basic encryption, DRM-based
encryption, JBIG2 image compression, transparency, and compressed object streams.
The intention is to support PDF features reasonably needed by eBooks and other
commercially published content, balancing 100% coverage with a focus on small size
and high performance.

Licensing

Is Adobe Digital Editions free for me and my customers to use?

Yes, Adobe Digital Editions is a free product.

Can I redistribute Digital Editions from my external website?

What is the EPUB format supported by Digital Editions?

EPUB is the file extension of an XML format for reflowable digital books and
publications. It consists of three open standards: Open Publication Structure
(OPS), Open Packaging Format (OPF), and Open Container Format (OCF). EPUB is
produced by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). EPUB allows
publishers to produce and send a single digital publication file through
distribution and offers consumers interoperability between software/hardware for
unencrypted reflowable digital books and other publications.

As a publisher/content distributor, how can I securely distribute content for


consumers to manage and consume via Digital Editions?
Adobe offers a content protection service, Adobe Content Server. Adobe Content
Server is a robust server solution that digitally protects PDF and reflowable EPUB
content for Adobe Digital Editions and supported mobile devices. Easy to integrate
into existing systems using industry standard technologies, Content Server allows
you to host, manage, and deliver files from your existing infrastructure to Digital
Editions users.

Visit the Content Server product site

Can I continue to borrow PDF eBooks from my public library with Digital Editions?
Yes, Digital Editions fully supports Adobe Content Server DRM technology and is
designed to work smoothly with existing library eBook lending services based on the
Adobe Content Server infrastructure.

Why do I need to activate my computer with my Adobe ID?

Some digital publications that you purchase online or check out from a library may
contain digital rights management (DRM) protection that restricts the items from
being shared with others. Digital Editions helps ensure that your eBooks and other
digital publications are not "locked" on one computer. They are assigned to you
through an ID, and can be viewed on any compatible device you own that you activate
with that ID.

What are the requirements to get an Adobe ID?

Página 173
Sin título
An Adobe ID is a free and a nonintrusive way of identifying users. You need only
provide a name, country, and e-mail address. You can create your Adobe ID when
prompted within Adobe Digital Editions, or go directly to the Adobe.com, select "My
Adobe" in the top-right corner, then click on “My Adobe ID” and follow the
instructions for creating an Adobe ID.

Note that you create an Adobe ID from a web browser. Once you’ve received
confirmation the Adobe ID is created, then you may close the browser and return to
Adobe Digital Editions, and enter the Adobe ID and password you created.

Your privacy is important to us. Please read our Privacy Policy.

computer?

1.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions anonymously, all the
purchased or borrowed books afterwards belong to that computer.
2.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions with an ID, all the purchased
or borrowed books afterwards belong to that ID.
3.The books downloaded before activation will not be converted.
4.Books can be copied from one device to another device. If two devices are
activated with the same ID, purchased books can be opened on the other device. If
the other device is not activated or if it is activated with another ID, a pop up
window will appear to ask for ID when opening the purchased books. Borrowed books
cannot be opened on another computer regardless its activation status. It is
because that the loan token is not copied.
5.Borrowed books and their loan tokens will be copied when transfer (not copy, this
is an ADE feature) them between computer and device (e-reader).

I'm having trouble installing Digital Editions. Where can I get support?

Please review the "Getting started" section on the Adobe Digital Editions home
page, or visit the Customer Service page.

Why do some PDF documents look different in Digital Editions than they do in
Acrobat and Reader?

Digital Editions utilizes Adobe PDF technology that has been optimized for small
code size and lower system requirements. It is optimized for performance and
onscreen readability, rather than graphic arts or prepress-level fidelity. As a
result, some minor differences in graphics and font rendering are to be expected.
In addition, the Digital Editions PDF implementation does not support several
enterprise-oriented PDF features. These features are not typically used in
PDF-based eBooks, and if present, they are ignored but may cause certain documents
to render incorrectly.

Página 175
Sin título

What PDF language profile is supported by Adobe Digital Editions?


Digital Editions supports a superset of ISO standard 19005-1 (PDF/A). PDF/A is
designed to support more secure, long-term information archiving; it is based on a
subset of PDF 1.4 (the version of PDF supported by Acrobat 5.0). Additional PDF
capabilities in Digital Editions beyond PDF/A include basic encryption, DRM-based
encryption, JBIG2 image compression, transparency, and compressed object streams.
The intention is to support PDF features reasonably needed by eBooks and other
commercially published content, balancing 100% coverage with a focus on small size
and high performance.

EPUB is the file extension of an XML format for reflowable digital books and
publications. It consists of three open standards: Open Publication Structure
(OPS), Open Packaging Format (OPF), and Open Container Format (OCF). EPUB is
produced by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). EPUB allows
publishers to produce and send a single digital publication file through
distribution and offers consumers interoperability between software/hardware for
unencrypted reflowable digital books and other publications.
Página 176

consumers to manage and consume via Digital Editions?
Adobe offers a content protection service, Adobe Content Server. Adobe Content
Server is a robust server solution that digitally protects PDF and reflowable EPUB
content for Adobe Digital Editions and supported mobile devices. Easy to integrate

you to host, manage, and deliver files from your existing infrastructure to Digital

Why do I need to activate my computer with my Adobe ID?

Some digital publications that you purchase online or check out from a library may
contain digital rights management (DRM) protection that restricts the items from
being shared with others. Digital Editions helps ensure that your eBooks and other
digital publications are not "locked" on one computer. They are assigned to you
through an ID, and can be viewed on any compatible device you own that you activate
with that ID.

What are the requirements to get an Adobe ID?

An Adobe ID is a free and a nonintrusive way of identifying users. You need only
provide a name, country, and e-mail address. You can create your Adobe ID when
prompted within Adobe Digital Editions, or go directly to the Adobe.com, select "My
Adobe" in the top-right corner, then click on “My Adobe ID” and follow the
instructions for creating an Adobe ID.

Note that you create an Adobe ID from a web browser. Once you’ve received
confirmation the Adobe ID is created, then you may close the browser and return to
Adobe Digital Editions, and enter the Adobe ID and password you created.

Your privacy is important to us. Please read our Privacy Policy.

Can I transfer eBooks that I have already purchased or downloaded to another


computer?

1.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions anonymously, all the
purchased or borrowed books afterwards belong to that computer.
2.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions with an ID, all the purchased
or borrowed books afterwards belong to that ID.
3.The books downloaded before activation will not be converted.
4.Books can be copied from one device to another device. If two devices are
activated with the same ID, purchased books can be opened on the other device. If
the other device is not activated or if it is activated with another ID, a pop up
window will appear to ask for ID when opening the purchased books. Borrowed books
cannot be opened on another computer regardless its activation status. It is
because that the loan token is not copied.
5.Borrowed books and their loan tokens will be copied when transfer (not copy, this
is an ADE feature) them between computer and device (e-reader).

initial installation.

What is the maximum number of computers and devices that I can activate?

Can I use an alternate ID to access eBooks?

Support

I'm having trouble installing Digital Editions. Where can I get support?

Please review the "Getting started" section on the Adobe Digital Editions home
page, or visit the Customer Service page.

Why do some PDF documents look different in Digital Editions than they do in
Acrobat and Reader?

Digital Editions utilizes Adobe PDF technology that has been optimized for small
code size and lower system requirements. It is optimized for performance and
onscreen readability, rather than graphic arts or prepress-level fidelity. As a
result, some minor differences in graphics and font rendering are to be expected.
In addition, the Digital Editions PDF implementation does not support several
enterprise-oriented PDF features. These features are not typically used in
PDF-based eBooks, and if present, they are ignored but may cause certain documents
to render incorrectly.

What PDF language profile is supported by Adobe Digital Editions?


Digital Editions supports a superset of ISO standard 19005-1 (PDF/A). PDF/A is
designed to support more secure, long-term information archiving; it is based on a
subset of PDF 1.4 (the version of PDF supported by Acrobat 5.0). Additional PDF
capabilities in Digital Editions beyond PDF/A include basic encryption, DRM-based
encryption, JBIG2 image compression, transparency, and compressed object streams.
The intention is to support PDF features reasonably needed by eBooks and other
commercially published content, balancing 100% coverage with a focus on small size
and high performance.

Licensing

To the top

Is Adobe Digital Editions free for me and my customers to use?

Yes, Adobe Digital Editions is a free product.

Can I redistribute Digital Editions from my external website?

No, Digital Editions is not licensed for distribution on external websites. You may
provide a link from your website to access the Adobe Digital Editions download on
adobe.com. Please visit the Permissions and Trademark Guidelines site for more
information.

What is the EPUB format supported by Digital Editions?

EPUB is the file extension of an XML format for reflowable digital books and
publications. It consists of three open standards: Open Publication Structure
(OPS), Open Packaging Format (OPF), and Open Container Format (OCF). EPUB is
produced by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). EPUB allows
publishers to produce and send a single digital publication file through
distribution and offers consumers interoperability between software/hardware for
unencrypted reflowable digital books and other publications.

As a publisher/content distributor, how can I securely distribute content for


consumers to manage and consume via Digital Editions?
Adobe offers a content protection service, Adobe Content Server. Adobe Content
Server is a robust server solution that digitally protects PDF and reflowable EPUB
content for Adobe Digital Editions and supported mobile devices. Easy to integrate
into existing systems using industry standard technologies, Content Server allows
you to host, manage, and deliver files from your existing infrastructure to Digital
Editions users.

automatically downloaded to all the other devices that belong to this consumer

Why do I need to activate my computer with my Adobe ID?

Some digital publications that you purchase online or check out from a library may
contain digital rights management (DRM) protection that restricts the items from
being shared with others. Digital Editions helps ensure that your eBooks and other
digital publications are not "locked" on one computer. They are assigned to you
through an ID, and can be viewed on any compatible device you own that you activate
with that ID.

What are the requirements to get an Adobe ID?

An Adobe ID is a free and a nonintrusive way of identifying users. You need only
provide a name, country, and e-mail address. You can create your Adobe ID when
prompted within Adobe Digital Editions, or go directly to the Adobe.com, select "My
Adobe" in the top-right corner, then click on “My Adobe ID” and follow the
instructions for creating an Adobe ID.

Note that you create an Adobe ID from a web browser. Once you’ve received
confirmation the Adobe ID is created, then you may close the browser and return to
Adobe Digital Editions, and enter the Adobe ID and password you created.

Your privacy is important to us. Please read our Privacy Policy.

Can I transfer eBooks that I have already purchased or downloaded to another


computer?

1.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions anonymously, all the
purchased or borrowed books afterwards belong to that computer.
2.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions with an ID, all the purchased
or borrowed books afterwards belong to that ID.
3.The books downloaded before activation will not be converted.
4.Books can be copied from one device to another device. If two devices are
activated with the same ID, purchased books can be opened on the other device. If
the other device is not activated or if it is activated with another ID, a pop up
window will appear to ask for ID when opening the purchased books. Borrowed books
cannot be opened on another computer regardless its activation status. It is
because that the loan token is not copied.
5.Borrowed books and their loan tokens will be copied when transfer (not copy, this
is an ADE feature) them between computer and device (e-reader).
6.If the permission limits the books to be viewed on only one device, the copied
books will not be able to be opened.

Do I need to activate my computer?

Digital Editions does not require you to activate your computer with an Adobe ID.

Can I activate my computer at a later time?

Digital Editions has an "Authorize this computer" menu item that you can use after
initial installation.

What is the maximum number of computers and devices that I can activate?

You can activate up to six computers and devices. If you reach the limit, contact
Customer Service to reset your activations.

Can I use an alternate ID to access eBooks?

With Digital Editions 4.5.6, you may use other IDs to access an eBook. You may, for
example, access a book from Google with a Google ID (referred to as a Vendor ID),
or a book from Barnes & Noble (referred to as Bookseller ID). This is further
described in the Getting Started eBook installed with Adobe Digital Editions.

Note that you can both authorize your computer with an Adobe ID, and selectively
access individual books with alternate Ids, such as Vendor ID. Adobe Digital
Editions will keep the two separate: if you download an eBook protected using a
Vendor ID or Bookseller ID, then you’ll be prompted to access using that ID.
Otherwise, it will either access to the Adobe ID you’ve authorized your computer
with, or (if you chose not to authorize the computer with an Adobe ID) will
authorize just for use on your computer.

I'm having trouble installing Digital Editions. Where can I get support?

Please review the "Getting started" section on the Adobe Digital Editions home
page, or visit the Customer Service page.

Why do some PDF documents look different in Digital Editions than they do in
Acrobat and Reader?

Digital Editions utilizes Adobe PDF technology that has been optimized for small
code size and lower system requirements. It is optimized for performance and
onscreen readability, rather than graphic arts or prepress-level fidelity. As a
result, some minor differences in graphics and font rendering are to be expected.
In addition, the Digital Editions PDF implementation does not support several
enterprise-oriented PDF features. These features are not typically used in
PDF-based eBooks, and if present, they are ignored but may cause certain documents
to render incorrectly.

What PDF language profile is supported by Adobe Digital Editions?


Digital Editions supports a superset of ISO standard 19005-1 (PDF/A). PDF/A is
designed to support more secure, long-term information archiving; it is based on a
subset of PDF 1.4 (the version of PDF supported by Acrobat 5.0). Additional PDF
capabilities in Digital Editions beyond PDF/A include basic encryption, DRM-based
encryption, JBIG2 image compression, transparency, and compressed object streams.
The intention is to support PDF features reasonably needed by eBooks and other
commercially published content, balancing 100% coverage with a focus on small size
and high performance.

or a book from Barnes & Noble (referred to as Bookseller ID). This is further
described in the Getting Started eBook installed with Adobe Digital Editions.

Note that you can both authorize your computer with an Adobe ID, and selectively
access individual books with alternate Ids, such as Vendor ID. Adobe Digital
Editions will keep the two separate: if you download an eBook protected using a
Vendor ID or Bookseller ID, then you’ll be prompted to access using that ID.
Otherwise, it will either access to the Adobe ID you’ve authorized your computer
with, or (if you chose not to authorize the computer with an Adobe ID) will
authorize just for use on your computer.

I'm having trouble installing Digital Editions. Where can I get support?

Please review the "Getting started" section on the Adobe Digital Editions home
page, or visit the Customer Service page.

Why do some PDF documents look different in Digital Editions than they do in
Acrobat and Reader?

Digital Editions utilizes Adobe PDF technology that has been optimized for small
code size and lower system requirements. It is optimized for performance and
onscreen readability, rather than graphic arts or prepress-level fidelity. As a
result, some minor differences in graphics and font rendering are to be expected.
In addition, the Digital Editions PDF implementation does not support several
enterprise-oriented PDF features. These features are not typically used in
PDF-based eBooks, and if present, they are ignored but may cause certain documents
to render incorrectly.

What PDF language profile is supported by Adobe Digital Editions?


Digital Editions supports a superset of ISO standard 19005-1 (PDF/A). PDF/A is
designed to support more secure, long-term information archiving; it is based on a
subset of PDF 1.4 (the version of PDF supported by Acrobat 5.0). Additional PDF
capabilities in Digital Editions beyond PDF/A include basic encryption, DRM-based
encryption, JBIG2 image compression, transparency, and compressed object streams.
The intention is to support PDF features reasonably needed by eBooks and other
commercially published content, balancing 100% coverage with a focus on small size
and high performance.

Is Adobe Digital Editions free for me and my customers to use?

Yes, Adobe Digital Editions is a free product.

Can I redistribute Digital Editions from my external website?

No, Digital Editions is not licensed for distribution on external websites. You may
provide a link from your website to access the Adobe Digital Editions download on
adobe.com. Please visit the Permissions and Trademark Guidelines site for more
information.

What is the EPUB format supported by Digital Editions?

EPUB is the file extension of an XML format for reflowable digital books and
publications. It consists of three open standards: Open Publication Structure
(OPS), Open Packaging Format (OPF), and Open Container Format (OCF). EPUB is
produced by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). EPUB allows
publishers to produce and send a single digital publication file through
distribution and offers consumers interoperability between software/hardware for
unencrypted reflowable digital books and other publications.

As a publisher/content distributor, how can I securely distribute content for


consumers to manage and consume via Digital Editions?
Adobe offers a content protection service, Adobe Content Server. Adobe Content
Server is a robust server solution that digitally protects PDF and reflowable EPUB
content for Adobe Digital Editions and supported mobile devices. Easy to integrate
into existing systems using industry standard technologies, Content Server allows
you to host, manage, and deliver files from your existing infrastructure to Digital
Editions users.

Can I continue to borrow PDF eBooks from my public library with Digital Editions?
Yes, Digital Editions fully supports Adobe Content Server DRM technology and is
designed to work smoothly with existing library eBook lending services based on the
Adobe Content Server infrastructure.

Why do I need to activate my computer with my Adobe ID?

Some digital publications that you purchase online or check out from a library may
contain digital rights management (DRM) protection that restricts the items from
being shared with others. Digital Editions helps ensure that your eBooks and other
digital publications are not "locked" on one computer. They are assigned to you
through an ID, and can be viewed on any compatible device you own that you activate
with that ID.

What are the requirements to get an Adobe ID?

An Adobe ID is a free and a nonintrusive way of identifying users. You need only
provide a name, country, and e-mail address. You can create your Adobe ID when
prompted within Adobe Digital Editions, or go directly to the Adobe.com, select "My
Adobe" in the top-right corner, then click on “My Adobe ID” and follow the
instructions for creating an Adobe ID.

Note that you create an Adobe ID from a web browser. Once you’ve received
confirmation the Adobe ID is created, then you may close the browser and return to
Adobe Digital Editions, and enter the Adobe ID and password you created.

Your privacy is important to us. Please read our Privacy Policy.

Can I transfer eBooks that I have already purchased or downloaded to another


computer?

1.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions anonymously, all the
purchased or borrowed books afterwards belong to that computer.
2.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions with an ID, all the purchased
or borrowed books afterwards belong to that ID.
3.The books downloaded before activation will not be converted.
4.Books can be copied from one device to another device. If two devices are
activated with the same ID, purchased books can be opened on the other device. If
the other device is not activated or if it is activated with another ID, a pop up
window will appear to ask for ID when opening the purchased books. Borrowed books
cannot be opened on another computer regardless its activation status. It is
because that the loan token is not copied.
5.Borrowed books and their loan tokens will be copied when transfer (not copy, this
Página 233
Sin título
is an ADE feature) them between computer and device (e-reader).
6.If the permission limits the books to be viewed on only one device, the copied
books will not be able to be opened.
Do I need to activate my computer?

Digital Editions does not require you to activate your computer with an Adobe ID.

Can I activate my computer at a later time?

Digital Editions has an "Authorize this computer" menu item that you can use after
initial installation.

What is the maximum number of computers and devices that I can activate?

You can activate up to six computers and devices. If you reach the limit, contact
Customer Service to reset your activations.

Can I use an alternate ID to access eBooks?

With Digital Editions 4.5.6, you may use other IDs to access an eBook. You may, for
example, access a book from Google with a Google ID (referred to as a Vendor ID),
or a book from Barnes & Noble (referred to as Bookseller ID). This is further
described in the Getting Started eBook installed with Adobe Digital Editions.

Note that you can both authorize your computer with an Adobe ID, and selectively
access individual books with alternate Ids, such as Vendor ID. Adobe Digital
Editions will keep the two separate: if you download an eBook protected using a
Vendor ID or Bookseller ID, then you’ll be prompted to access using that ID.
Otherwise, it will either access to the Adobe ID you’ve authorized your computer
with, or (if you chose not to authorize the computer with an Adobe ID) will

Why do some PDF documents look different in Digital Editions than they do in

PDF-based eBooks, and if present, they are ignored but may cause certain documents

Digital Editions supports a superset of ISO standard 19005-1 (PDF/A). PDF/A is


designed to support more secure, long-term information archiving; it is based on a
subset of PDF 1.4 (the version of PDF supported by Acrobat 5.0). Additional PDF
capabilities in Digital Editions beyond PDF/A include basic encryption, DRM-based
encryption, JBIG2 image compression, transparency, and compressed object streams.
The intention is to support PDF features reasonably needed by eBooks and other
commercially published content, balancing 100% coverage with a focus on small size
and high performance.

provide a name, country, and e-mail address. You can create your Adobe ID when
prompted within Adobe Digital Editions, or go directly to the Adobe.com, select "My
Adobe" in the top-right corner, then click on “My Adobe ID” and follow the
instructions for creating an Adobe ID.

Can I transfer eBooks that I have already purchased or downloaded to another


computer?

1.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions anonymously, all the
purchased or borrowed books afterwards belong to that computer.
2.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions with an ID, all the purchased
or borrowed books afterwards belong to that ID.
3.The books downloaded before activation will not be converted.
4.Books can be copied from one device to another device. If two devices are

the other device is not activated or if it is activated with another ID, a pop up
window will appear to ask for ID when opening the purchased books. Borrowed books
cannot be opened on another computer regardless its activation status. It is

5.Borrowed books and their loan tokens will be copied when transfer (not copy, this
is an ADE feature) them between computer and device (e-reader).
6.If the permission limits the books to be viewed on only one device, the copied

Digital Editions does not require you to activate your computer with an Adobe ID.

Can I activate my computer at a later time?

Digital Editions has an "Authorize this computer" menu item that you can use after
initial installation.

What is the maximum number of computers and devices that I can activate?

You can activate up to six computers and devices. If you reach the limit, contact
Customer Service to reset your activations.

Can I use an alternate ID to access eBooks?

With Digital Editions 4.5.6, you may use other IDs to access an eBook. You may, for
example, access a book from Google with a Google ID (referred to as a Vendor ID),
or a book from Barnes & Noble (referred to as Bookseller ID). This is further
described in the Getting Started eBook installed with Adobe Digital Editions.

Note that you can both authorize your computer with an Adobe ID, and selectively
access individual books with alternate Ids, such as Vendor ID. Adobe Digital
Editions will keep the two separate: if you download an eBook protected using a
Vendor ID or Bookseller ID, then you’ll be prompted to access using that ID.
Otherwise, it will either access to the Adobe ID you’ve authorized your computer
with, or (if you chose not to authorize the computer with an Adobe ID) will
authorize just for use on your computer.

Please review the "Getting started" section on the Adobe Digital Editions home
page, or visit the Customer Service page.

Why do some PDF documents look different in Digital Editions than they do in
Acrobat and Reader?

Digital Editions utilizes Adobe PDF technology that has been optimized for small
code size and lower system requirements. It is optimized for performance and
onscreen readability, rather than graphic arts or prepress-level fidelity. As a
result, some minor differences in graphics and font rendering are to be expected.
In addition, the Digital Editions PDF implementation does not support several
enterprise-oriented PDF features. These features are not typically used in
PDF-based eBooks, and if present, they are ignored but may cause certain documents
to render incorrectly.

What PDF language profile is supported by Adobe Digital Editions?

Digital Editions supports a superset of ISO standard 19005-1 (PDF/A). PDF/A is


designed to support more secure, long-term information archiving; it is based on a
subset of PDF 1.4 (the version of PDF supported by Acrobat 5.0). Additional PDF
capabilities in Digital Editions beyond PDF/A include basic encryption, DRM-based
encryption, JBIG2 image compression, transparency, and compressed object streams.
The intention is to support PDF features reasonably needed by eBooks and other
commercially published content, balancing 100% coverage with a focus on small size
and high performance.

Is Adobe Digital Editions free for me and my customers to use?

Can I redistribute Digital Editions from my external website?

No, Digital Editions is not licensed for distribution on external websites. You may
provide a link from your website to access the Adobe Digital Editions download on
adobe.com. Please visit the Permissions and Trademark Guidelines site for more
information.

What is the EPUB format supported by Digital Editions?

EPUB is the file extension of an XML format for reflowable digital books and
publications. It consists of three open standards: Open Publication Structure
(OPS), Open Packaging Format (OPF), and Open Container Format (OCF). EPUB is
produced by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). EPUB allows
publishers to produce and send a single digital publication file through
distribution and offers consumers interoperability between software/hardware for
unencrypted reflowable digital books and other publications.

As a publisher/content distributor, how can I securely distribute content for


consumers to manage and consume via Digital Editions?
Adobe offers a content protection service, Adobe Content Server. Adobe Content
Server is a robust server solution that digitally protects PDF and reflowable EPUB
content for Adobe Digital Editions and supported mobile devices. Easy to integrate
into existing systems using industry standard technologies, Content Server allows
you to host, manage, and deliver files from your existing infrastructure to Digital
Editions users.

Can I continue to borrow PDF eBooks from my public library with Digital Editions?
Yes, Digital Editions fully supports Adobe Content Server DRM technology and is
designed to work smoothly with existing library eBook lending services based on the
Adobe Content Server infrastructure.

Why do I need to activate my computer with my Adobe ID?

Some digital publications that you purchase online or check out from a library may
contain digital rights management (DRM) protection that restricts the items from
being shared with others. Digital Editions helps ensure that your eBooks and other
digital publications are not "locked" on one computer. They are assigned to you
through an ID, and can be viewed on any compatible device you own that you activate
with that ID.

What are the requirements to get an Adobe ID?

An Adobe ID is a free and a nonintrusive way of identifying users. You need only
provide a name, country, and e-mail address. You can create your Adobe ID when
prompted within Adobe Digital Editions, or go directly to the Adobe.com, select "My
Adobe" in the top-right corner, then click on “My Adobe ID” and follow the
instructions for creating an Adobe ID.

Note that you create an Adobe ID from a web browser. Once you’ve received
confirmation the Adobe ID is created, then you may close the browser and return to
Adobe Digital Editions, and enter the Adobe ID and password you created.

How is version 4.5.6 different from Adobe Digital Editions 3.0?

Version 4.5.6 allows seamless fulfillment of books across devices: With this new
feature, when a consumer fulfills a book on one device, the book will be
automatically downloaded to all the other devices that belong to this consumer
(activated using the same user ID).

How do I use it with screen reading technology?

Adobe Digital Editions 3.0 and above versions are designed to work with assistive
technologies on Mac and Windows. You must separately install/enable these
Página 261
Sin título
applications. Installation instructions can be found on the respective web sites
(JAWS, NVDA, or Window-Eyes on Windows and VoiceOver on Mac). Version 3.0 and above
are designed with support for full keyboard controls (tab navigation and
shortcuts), improved text enlargement, and support for high-contrast modes.
Shortcuts are listed in the Getting Started eBook that is installed along with the

Why do I get an error message as W_ADEPT_CORE_LOAN_NOT_ONRECORD while opening a


book?

this machine. It implies that you are attempting to open a borrowed book that was
previously expired or returned.

How do I read dialog contents while using voice over screen reader in Mac OS?

When using Mac OS X's VoiceOver screen reader (for accessibility), press
Ctrl+Option+W to read the contents of dialogs.

Why do I need to activate my computer with my Adobe ID?

Some digital publications that you purchase online or check out from a library may
contain digital rights management (DRM) protection that restricts the items from
being shared with others. Digital Editions helps ensure that your eBooks and other
Página 262
Sin título
digital publications are not "locked" on one computer. They are assigned to you
through an ID, and can be viewed on any compatible device you own that you activate
with that ID.

What are the requirements to get an Adobe ID?

An Adobe ID is a free and a nonintrusive way of identifying users. You need only
provide a name, country, and e-mail address. You can create your Adobe ID when
prompted within Adobe Digital Editions, or go directly to the Adobe.com, select "My
Adobe" in the top-right corner, then click on “My Adobe ID” and follow the
instructions for creating an Adobe ID.

Note that you create an Adobe ID from a web browser. Once you’ve received
confirmation the Adobe ID is created, then you may close the browser and return to
Adobe Digital Editions, and enter the Adobe ID and password you created.

Your privacy is important to us. Please read our Privacy Policy.

Can I transfer eBooks that I have already purchased or downloaded to another


computer?

1.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions anonymously, all the
purchased or borrowed books afterwards belong to that computer.
2.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions with an ID, all the purchased
or borrowed books afterwards belong to that ID.
3.The books downloaded before activation will not be converted.
4.Books can be copied from one device to another device. If two devices are
activated with the same ID, purchased books can be opened on the other device. If
the other device is not activated or if it is activated with another ID, a pop up
window will appear to ask for ID when opening the purchased books. Borrowed books
cannot be opened on another computer regardless its activation status. It is
because that the loan token is not copied.
5.Borrowed books and their loan tokens will be copied when transfer (not copy, this
is an ADE feature) them between computer and device (e-reader).
6.If the permission limits the books to be viewed on only one device, the copied
books will not be able to be opened.

Do I need to activate my computer?

Digital Editions does not require you to activate your computer with an Adobe ID.

Can I activate my computer at a later time?

Digital Editions has an "Authorize this computer" menu item that you can use after
initial installation.

Página 263
Sin título

What is the maximum number of computers and devices that I can activate?

You can activate up to six computers and devices. If you reach the limit, contact
Customer Service to reset your activations.

Can I use an alternate ID to access eBooks?

With Digital Editions 4.5.6, you may use other IDs to access an eBook. You may, for
example, access a book from Google with a Google ID (referred to as a Vendor ID),
or a book from Barnes & Noble (referred to as Bookseller ID). This is further
described in the Getting Started eBook installed with Adobe Digital Editions.

Note that you can both authorize your computer with an Adobe ID, and selectively
access individual books with alternate Ids, such as Vendor ID. Adobe Digital
Editions will keep the two separate: if you download an eBook protected using a
Vendor ID or Bookseller ID, then you’ll be prompted to access using that ID.
Otherwise, it will either access to the Adobe ID you’ve authorized your computer
with, or (if you chose not to authorize the computer with an Adobe ID) will
authorize just for use on your computer.

I'm having trouble installing Digital Editions. Where can I get support?

Please review the "Getting started" section on the Adobe Digital Editions home
page, or visit the Customer Service page.

Why do some PDF documents look different in Digital Editions than they do in
Acrobat and Reader?

Digital Editions utilizes Adobe PDF technology that has been optimized for small
Página 264
Sin título
code size and lower system requirements. It is optimized for performance and
onscreen readability, rather than graphic arts or prepress-level fidelity. As a
result, some minor differences in graphics and font rendering are to be expected.
In addition, the Digital Editions PDF implementation does not support several
enterprise-oriented PDF features. These features are not typically used in
PDF-based eBooks, and if present, they are ignored but may cause certain documents
to render incorrectly.

What PDF language profile is supported by Adobe Digital Editions?


Digital Editions supports a superset of ISO standard 19005-1 (PDF/A). PDF/A is
designed to support more secure, long-term information archiving; it is based on a
subset of PDF 1.4 (the version of PDF supported by Acrobat 5.0). Additional PDF
capabilities in Digital Editions beyond PDF/A include basic encryption, DRM-based
encryption, JBIG2 image compression, transparency, and compressed object streams.
The intention is to support PDF features reasonably needed by eBooks and other
commercially published content, balancing 100% coverage with a focus on small size
and high performance.

Licensing

To the top

Is Adobe Digital Editions free for me and my customers to use?

Yes, Adobe Digital Editions is a free product.

Can I redistribute Digital Editions from my external website?

No, Digital Editions is not licensed for distribution on external websites. You may
provide a link from your website to access the Adobe Digital Editions download on
adobe.com. Please visit the Permissions and Trademark Guidelines site for more
information.

What is the EPUB format supported by Digital Editions?


Página 265
Sin título

EPUB is the file extension of an XML format for reflowable digital books and
publications. It consists of three open standards: Open Publication Structure
(OPS), Open Packaging Format (OPF), and Open Container Format (OCF). EPUB is
produced by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). EPUB allows
publishers to produce and send a single digital publication file through
distribution and offers consumers interoperability between software/hardware for
unencrypted reflowable digital books and other publications.

As a publisher/content distributor, how can I securely distribute content for


consumers to manage and consume via Digital Editions?
Adobe offers a content protection service, Adobe Content Server. Adobe Content
Server is a robust server solution that digitally protects PDF and reflowable EPUB
content for Adobe Digital Editions and supported mobile devices. Easy to integrate
into existing systems using industry standard technologies, Content Server allows
you to host, manage, and deliver files from your existing infrastructure to Digital
Editions users.

Why do I need to activate my computer with my Adobe ID?

Some digital publications that you purchase online or check out from a library may
contain digital rights management (DRM) protection that restricts the items from
being shared with others. Digital Editions helps ensure that your eBooks and other
digital publications are not "locked" on one computer. They are assigned to you
through an ID, and can be viewed on any compatible device you own that you activate
with that ID.

What are the requirements to get an Adobe ID?

An Adobe ID is a free and a nonintrusive way of identifying users. You need only
provide a name, country, and e-mail address. You can create your Adobe ID when
Página 282
Sin título
prompted within Adobe Digital Editions, or go directly to the Adobe.com, select "My
Adobe" in the top-right corner, then click on “My Adobe ID” and follow the
instructions for creating an Adobe ID.

Note that you create an Adobe ID from a web browser. Once you’ve received
confirmation the Adobe ID is created, then you may close the browser and return to
Adobe Digital Editions, and enter the Adobe ID and password you created.

Your privacy is important to us. Please read our Privacy Policy.

Can I transfer eBooks that I have already purchased or downloaded to another


computer?

1.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions anonymously, all the
purchased or borrowed books afterwards belong to that computer.
2.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions with an ID, all the purchased
or borrowed books afterwards belong to that ID.
3.The books downloaded before activation will not be converted.
4.Books can be copied from one device to another device. If two devices are
activated with the same ID, purchased books can be opened on the other device. If
the other device is not activated or if it is activated with another ID, a pop up
window will appear to ask for ID when opening the purchased books. Borrowed books
cannot be opened on another computer regardless its activation status. It is
because that the loan token is not copied.
5.Borrowed books and their loan tokens will be copied when transfer (not copy, this
is an ADE feature) them between computer and device (e-reader).
6.If the permission limits the books to be viewed on only one device, the copied
books will not be able to be opened.
Do I need to activate my computer?

Digital Editions does not require you to activate your computer with an Adobe ID.

Can I activate my computer at a later time?

Digital Editions has an "Authorize this computer" menu item that you can use after
initial installation.

What is the maximum number of computers and devices that I can activate?

You can activate up to six computers and devices. If you reach the limit, contact
Customer Service to reset your activations.

Can I use an alternate ID to access eBooks?


Página 283
Sin título

example, access a book from Google with a Google ID (referred to as a Vendor ID),
or a book from Barnes & Noble (referred to as Bookseller ID). This is further
described in the Getting Started eBook installed with Adobe Digital Editions.

Note that you can both authorize your computer with an Adobe ID, and selectively
access individual books with alternate Ids, such as Vendor ID. Adobe Digital
Editions will keep the two separate: if you download an eBook protected using a
Vendor ID or Bookseller ID, then you’ll be prompted to access using that ID.

I'm having trouble installing Digital Editions. Where can I get support?

Please review the "Getting started" section on the Adobe Digital Editions home
page, or visit the Customer Service page.

Why do some PDF documents look different in Digital Editions than they do in
Acrobat and Reader?

Digital Editions utilizes Adobe PDF technology that has been optimized for small
code size and lower system requirements. It is optimized for performance and
onscreen readability, rather than graphic arts or prepress-level fidelity. As a
result, some minor differences in graphics and font rendering are to be expected.
In addition, the Digital Editions PDF implementation does not support several
enterprise-oriented PDF features. These features are not typically used in
PDF-based eBooks, and if present, they are ignored but may cause certain documents
to render incorrectly.

What PDF language profile is supported by Adobe Digital Editions?


Página 284
Sin título
Digital Editions supports a superset of ISO standard 19005-1 (PDF/A). PDF/A is
designed to support more secure, long-term information archiving; it is based on a
subset of PDF 1.4 (the version of PDF supported by Acrobat 5.0). Additional PDF
capabilities in Digital Editions beyond PDF/A include basic encryption, DRM-based
encryption, JBIG2 image compression, transparency, and compressed object streams.
The intention is to support PDF features reasonably needed by eBooks and other
commercially published content, balancing 100% coverage with a focus on small size
and high performance.

Licensing

Is Adobe Digital Editions free for me and my customers to use?

adobe.com. Please visit the Permissions and Trademark Guidelines site for more
information.

What is the EPUB format supported by Digital Editions?

EPUB is the file extension of an XML format for reflowable digital books and
publications. It consists of three open standards: Open Publication Structure
(OPS), Open Packaging Format (OPF), and Open Container Format (OCF). EPUB is
produced by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). EPUB allows
publishers to produce and send a single digital publication file through
distribution and offers consumers interoperability between software/hardware for
unencrypted reflowable digital books and other publications.

Página 285
Sin título
As a publisher/content distributor, how can I securely distribute content for
consumers to manage and consume via Digital Editions?
Adobe offers a content protection service, Adobe Content Server. Adobe Content
Server is a robust server solution that digitally protects PDF and reflowable EPUB
content for Adobe Digital Editions and supported mobile devices. Easy to integrate
into existing systems using industry standard technologies, Content Server allows
you to host, manage, and deliver files from your existing infrastructure to Digital

Why do I need to activate my computer with my Adobe ID?

Some digital publications that you purchase online or check out from a library may
contain digital rights management (DRM) protection that restricts the items from
being shared with others. Digital Editions helps ensure that your eBooks and other
digital publications are not "locked" on one computer. They are assigned to you
through an ID, and can be viewed on any compatible device you own that you activate
with that ID.

What are the requirements to get an Adobe ID?

An Adobe ID is a free and a nonintrusive way of identifying users. You need only
provide a name, country, and e-mail address. You can create your Adobe ID when
prompted within Adobe Digital Editions, or go directly to the Adobe.com, select "My
Adobe" in the top-right corner, then click on “My Adobe ID” and follow the
instructions for creating an Adobe ID.

Note that you create an Adobe ID from a web browser. Once you’ve received
confirmation the Adobe ID is created, then you may close the browser and return to
Adobe Digital Editions, and enter the Adobe ID and password you created.

Your privacy is important to us. Please read our Privacy Policy.

Can I transfer eBooks that I have already purchased or downloaded to another


computer?

1.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions anonymously, all the
purchased or borrowed books afterwards belong to that computer.
2.If you activate your computer with Digital Editions with an ID, all the purchased
or borrowed books afterwards belong to that ID.
3.The books downloaded before activation will not be converted.
4.Books can be copied from one device to another device. If two devices are
activated with the same ID, purchased books can be opened on the other device. If
the other device is not activated or if it is activated with another ID, a pop up
window will appear to ask for ID when opening the purchased books. Borrowed books
cannot be opened on another computer regardless its activation status. It is
because that the loan token is not copied.
5.Borrowed books and their loan tokens will be copied when transfer (not copy, this
is an ADE feature) them between computer and device (e-reader).
6.If the permission limits the books to be viewed on only one device, the copied
books will not be able to be opened.

Do I need to activate my computer?

Digital Editions does not require you to activate your computer with an Adobe ID.

Can I activate my computer at a later time?

Digital Editions has an "Authorize this computer" menu item that you can use after
initial installation.

What is the maximum number of computers and devices that I can activate?

You can activate up to six computers and devices. If you reach the limit, contact
Customer Service to reset your activations.

Can I use an alternate ID to access eBooks?

With Digital Editions 4.5.6, you may use other IDs to access an eBook. You may, for
example, access a book from Google with a Google ID (referred to as a Vendor ID),
or a book from Barnes & Noble (referred to as Bookseller ID). This is further
described in the Getting Started eBook installed with Adobe Digital Editions.

Note that you can both authorize your computer with an Adobe ID, and selectively
access individual books with alternate Ids, such as Vendor ID. Adobe Digital
Editions will keep the two separate: if you download an eBook protected using a
Página 303
Sin título
Vendor ID or Bookseller ID, then you’ll be prompted to access using that ID.

I'm having trouble installing Digital Editions. Where can I get support?

Please review the "Getting started" section on the Adobe Digital Editions home
page, or visit the Customer Service page.

Why do some PDF documents look different in Digital Editions than they do in
Acrobat and Reader?

Digital Editions utilizes Adobe PDF technology that has been optimized for small
code size and lower system requirements. It is optimized for performance and
onscreen readability, rather than graphic arts or prepress-level fidelity. As a
result, some minor differences in graphics and font rendering are to be expected.
In addition, the Digital Editions PDF implementation does not support several
enterprise-oriented PDF features. These features are not typically used in
PDF-based eBooks, and if present, they are ignored but may cause certain documents
to render incorrectly.

What PDF language profile is supported by Adobe Digital Editions?


Digital Editions supports a superset of ISO standard 19005-1 (PDF/A). PDF/A is
designed to support more secure, long-term information archiving; it is based on a
subset of PDF 1.4 (the version of PDF supported by Acrobat 5.0). Additional PDF
capabilities in Digital Editions beyond PDF/A include basic encryption, DRM-based
encryption, JBIG2 image compression, transparency, and compressed object streams.
The intention is to support PDF features reasonably needed by eBooks and other
commercially published content, balancing 100% coverage with a focus on small size
and high performance.

Is Adobe Digital Editions free for me and my customers to use?

Can I redistribute Digital Editions from my external website?

No, Digital Editions is not licensed for distribution on external websites. You may
provide a link from your website to access the Adobe Digital Editions download on
adobe.com. Please visit the Permissions and Trademark Guidelines site for more
information.

What is the EPUB format supported by Digital Editions?

EPUB is the file extension of an XML format for reflowable digital books and
publications. It consists of three open standards: Open Publication Structure
(OPS), Open Packaging Format (OPF), and Open Container Format (OCF). EPUB is
produced by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). EPUB allows
publishers to produce and send a single digital publication file through
distribution and offers consumers interoperability between software/hardware for
unencrypted reflowable digital books and other publications.

As a publisher/content distributor, how can I securely distribute content for


consumers to manage and consume via Digital Editions?
Adobe offers a content protection service, Adobe Content Server. Adobe Content
Server is a robust server solution that digitally protects PDF and reflowable EPUB
content for Adobe Digital Editions and supported mobile devices. Easy to integrate
into existing systems using industry standard technologies, Content Server allows
you to host, manage, and deliver files from your existing infrastructure to Digital
Editions users.

Known issues in ADE 4.0

Known issues with rendering EPUB 3 content:

•On Windows, EPUB 3 features do not render if the IE version is less than 10.
•On Windows, Detail, Bdi, Wbr tags are not supported.
•On Windows, Mouse wheel scrolling is not supported.
•Hitting Tab inside the contents of the book changes the content alignment.
Other known issues:

•Adobe Digital Editions will not turn to the next page automatically in the NVDA
Say All mode. NVDA only reads the current page until the user changes the page.
•If you have a prior version of Adobe Digital Editions installed along with Adobe
Digital Editions 4.0, uninstalling one of them will de-associate the EPUB and ASCM
file types with the application. You’ll then need to manually associate file types
(see your operating system’s instructions for associating file types).
•If you unplug a device while it is in the process of authorizing, ADE may report
the device is authorized when it isn’t. After restarting ADE, it will show the
correct authorization state of the device.
•Simultaneously adding *.ACSM files along with *.EPUB/*.PDF files into the same
library on Mac OS X is not recommended. Some *.PDF/ *.EPUB books may not be added
in this case.
