Pinch & Zoom...Where does it work

Hi,

 

Just got the Nook and trying figure it out still.  Really confused about the Pinch and zoom.  I see that it works in my photo gallery.  It does not work in the web browser, within a book to zoom in or out of text, in my library, on my home page etc. So where does it work besides the photo gallery?  I read that it can be used inside of magazines and to zoom in on book covers.  I haven't been able to zoom into a book cover yet...so what do they mean?  As far as magazines I haven't downloaded any so I assume maybe it only works on photos within the article.  Help!

 

 

Thank you!

Re: Pinch & Zoom...Where does it work

Works on magazines and newspapers, as well as photos. If you do the motion on the web browser, you will get a zoom icon in the bottom corner. it does'nt work on books, but you can enhance text size. Remember, this is a nook, not an ipad.

Re: Pinch & Zoom...Where does it work

It also works on children's books.

 

You can pinch and zoom on book covers that you place on your home page only,
