How do I display PDF document as single pages on iPad?

I have a company catalogue in PDF format, 20 pages long. We use Issuu to allow customer to view the catalogue on their PCs and mobile devices.
In Issuu you can customise the embed widget to show single pages, and this works fine when viewing the catalogue on a PC. The problem arises when trying to view the catalogue on an iPad. It appears that the iPad automatically sets the PDF to view as a Facing Pages document. It doesn't matter if I'm using Safari, or the Atomic browser we have installed (so that we can hide the URL bar).
I've created the document in inDesign as a single page document but the iPad still merges pages 2-3, 4-5, 6-7 etc.
The iPads will be used in our retail stores so it's important that the set up and navigation is as simple as possible. The catalogue is placed within an iFrame on the page so that I can but a navigational banner at the top that easily takes customers back to the main menu page. It's important that the catalogue opens within the page. The Issuu embed widget for Tumblr, etc only creates a preview of the catalogue which then opens in a separate tab, which unfortunately will not be suitable to our needs.
You can view the page here:
I've tried a number of different options, I've written to Issuu but they were unable to help as it only seems to be an iPad-related problem.
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Kind regards,

The PDF viewers on the iPad do not understand customised widgets.  They understand the PDF format, exactly as it was designed by Adobe.  Instead of trying to use a custom solution, use the features which are provided by the PDF format.  Custom solutions work only for the situations that the company that wrote the custom solution wants them to work and they are a corruption of the normal way PDFs are used.
In your situation I'd remove all dependency on any custom widgets from your PDF document.  Instead you can use links which allow you to click on a piece of text or an image in the PDF and the PDF software will take you to a different page.  This is part of the PDF standard and will work on all software capable of showing PDFs.  It is all your users should need to navigate from one part of your catalogue to another.  Whatever software you're using to create your PDF should give instructions on how to create links in your PDF document.
Similarly your use of iFrames is a little stange.  If your material is on a web site, put it in web pages where you can use all the features web pages give you, including blue-underlined links to other pages.  If, instead, your material is in a PDF then put all the navigation in the PDF.  Don't try to depend on a strange interaction between the PDF and your web pages.

    how do i transfer pdf comics(in cloudreader on ipad) tomy macbook pro?

    I'm not familiar with Cloudreader, but it may be one of the Apps that can transfer files via iTunes.
    Connect your iPad to your computer and run iTunes.  Select the iPad under DEVICES and click on the Apps tab at the top of the window.  Scroll down to File Sharing and look for Cloudreader in the list of Apps.  If it is there, click on it and see if your PDF documents are in the Documents window or inside a folder in that window.
    So see inside a folder, you may have to "Save To" your computer, and open it there.

  • Why won't PDF documents sync to Pages on iPad?

    I sync my iMac and iPad via iTunes using the Apps/File Sharing method.
    Upon opening Pages on my iPad, I am able to successfully 'Copy from iTunes' most documents. However,  those documents which are in the PDF format are dimmed and not selectable.
    Can anyone suggest a fix?

    Pages can save documents to PDF format, but does not open them natively. Use iBooks or one of the many free apps available for that purpose on the App Store.

  • How to disable Display PDF in Browser in Adobe Reader XI?

    I am having troubles with opening a report in PDF form from a web browser, and I'm trying to figure out how to disable opening a PDF in a browser in Reader XI.  I tried disabling "Open in Read Mode" and "Allow Fast Web View" both individually and seperately, and none of those combinations did the trick.
    Any suggestions/help are appreciated.  Thanks.

    Hello Lloyd6770
    Try these steps.  ( I'm using Windows 7 x64 Ultimate, Internet Explorer 9,  and Adobe XI )
    1. Open Adobe XI
    2. Click Edit
    3. Click Accessibility
    4. Click Setup Assistant
    5. Click top radio button 'Set Options for Screen Readers'
    6. Click Next
    7. Do not change options on Screen 2 of 4, Click Next
    8. Do not change options on Screen 3 of 4, Click Next
    9. On screen 4 of 4, remove the check mark on ' Display PDF documents in the web browser '
    NOTE: I checked Internet Explorer 9 / Tools / Manage add-ons and Adobe PDF Link Helper is still enabled in Internet Explorer 9.
    PDF's will open in Adobe XI as you preferred and not in your brower.

    Hi olivias,
    It sounds like there may be some confusion on your system about what application should be associated with PDF files. You can reset filename associations by following the steps in these articles (depending on your operating system):

    I need to know how to edit a PDF document?

    Preview has limited PDF editing capability.  You can get a lot more on:
    or with Wondershare's PDF Editor.
    Adobe Acrobat Pro is the most expensive solution.
    Since you posted under iMac PPC forum, which is for iMacs that can't run any operating system newer than August 28, 2009, I can't say specifically what the capabilities of your version of Preview are.  Go to Apple menu -> About This Mac.  If you have an Intel, you do not have a PPC.  If you have a G5, G4 or G3, you posted to the right forum, and just need to find the version of Preview you have in Applications folder.
