Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

LANDSCAPE MODE ANSWER

[ Edited ]

Copied from Nook Tech board:

"

The NOOK Color 1.2 update does not add NOOKbook landscape support, although we have added support for page turn animations (via Settings) and for enhanced ePub content (embedded audio and/or video). 

 

We do continue to support landscape mode in all the same applicationons that previously had landscape support (Magazines, NOOK Kids, Gallery, Browser, etc.) and in some NOOK Apps.

Most interesting is that there is finally a "Nook Engineer" moderator on the Tech board.  First time in a long time B&N has officially shown up on these boards.  Jeffrey is most welcome!

Re: LANDSCAPE MODE ANSWER

I'm new to the Nook Color, but before the update I could view Magazines in the Portrait mode.  Now, after the update, they seem to only be in Landscape mode.  Is there some setting that I am missing to change it back to the Portrait mode?

 

Thanks!

My mags and movies still do portrait and landscape.

Check in NC settings, device settings, screen, and make sure auto-rotate screen is checked.

If it is, try turning NC off, then on. Sometimes a simple reboot cures a million ills.

Re: LANDSCAPE MODE ANSWER

Well, I guess that was pretty silly.  The box was checked so I did a reboot.  Everything seems to be fine now.

 

Thanks!
