I just purchased a Nook Color and I LOVE it so far. However, I've noticed a strange issue with reading PDF books. If plug my Nook into my PC, and copy a PDF book from one of my technical books (from the CD contained within the book) to my Nook under Books, the PDF opens in QuickOffice, which gives me very basic, limited capabilities when it comes to the PDF books I load. Also, every time I close out of the PDF book, it opens to the very first page every single time. However, if I email the same PDF book to myself, and open the PDF from my Gmail, I'm prompted to open the book in QuickOffice, OR the Book Reader. If I choose Reader, I'm given the full blown capabilities of the Nook with regards to bookmarking, indexing, skipping to different chapters, annotating, etc. I've also tried this with both DRM'd and non-DRM'd PDF books and there is no difference in how they behave.
Is there a way for me to force my Nook Color to open all PDFs in the book reader and not the QuickOffice viewer? This is a huge hindrance for me, and one of the reasons I bought the Nook Color was to use it to carry around all of my technical books with me wherever I go. Can you please provide any insight?
Thanks in advance!
