Horizontal scrolling in Pdf-reader?

Helpful | Level 6

Hello,

I want to scroll (horizontal) music-sheets in Pdf-reader sideways.

So from left to right and back again if possible.

Anyone a solution? Thanks,

 Rudolph

Via the Dropbox mobile app. 

 

But in the meantime I found another app (Foxit pdf editor) that makes scrolling fine.

 

Thanks for your help.

Hi @Rudolph, thanks for joining the Community!

Generally, to scroll horizontally, you can hold the Shift key on your keyboard and use the mouse wheel.

This might depend on your current setup and OS.

If you need any further assistance, please let me know!

Hi Jay, thanks for answering me.
Next problem, I have the Pdf-reader on a tablet so there is no Shift key on my keyboard.
Thanks again for your help.

So far I understand the sideways-scrolling is not possible in an android-tablet.
Or am I wrong in this?
Thanks,
Rudolph

Are you trying to scroll via the Dropbox mobile app, or a third party PDF viewer?
