    Lightbulb A great idea!!

    Hey Everyone

    How about putting 1 volume of any manga into Adobe Reader and make an .pdf file of it so it will be easier for the reader to download and scroll down to read the chapters.

    If you ask me it is a bit hard to open up .rar files again and again .

    What about you everyone what do you think

    As someone who used to convert all his volumes to PDF, I can tell you now it is much more inconvenient than RAR files. Acrobat can be annoying to use sometimes and it takes a while to open on slow computers. Also, people like to be able to select and view pictures individually, extracting images from PDFs is annoying. RAR files are also smaller.

    If you don't like unpacking archives, just get a manga viewer like ACDSee, those types of programs allow you to view all the images in sequence, without having to unpack them.

    Also, to do as you suggest, would mean searching the web for chapter lists, going through every one of the thousands of chapters hosted on this site and organising them into volumes and then converting those volumes to PDF and re uploading them. This would literally take months to do, and people downloading volumes would probably also increase our bandwidth usage a bit.

    EDIT: Am I right in thinking that you open up the RAR file every time you want to read the manga? Why not just unpack the file (right click)?

    I won't get into how much I love Acrobat or what I think of this wonderful idea. LOL

    I can use "Windows picture and fax viewer" (which came with my Office pack). I prefer some free cbr utility (CDisplay seems popular) to view the images sequentially in large, living color. Winrar extracts the files with one easy right-click, Cdisplay or whatever automatically opens the file in readable format. Easy as pie!

    seriously, acrobat sucks so hard for me, it's slower than opening an rar file to read the files.

    Yes, adobe programs makes me wanna punch the screen it's so slow. Also, sometimes acrobat crashes my browser and some pdfs even hangs up my computer, though I have a snazzy set up. Really chops my hide.
