What are fixed-layout titles?
Some titles have a "fixed layout" when you open them in your browser using OverDrive Read.
A fixed layout lets the publisher design an ebook or digital magazine to look just like the print version. This formatting is often used for graphic-heavy titles, like comic books and picture books.
You can't change the layout, font, or book design. Instead, you can zoom in on individual pages to make words and pictures larger:
- Click or tap the Zoom icon along the top of the reader to enter zoom mode.
- Use the plus or minus icons to adjust your zoom level.
- Select Done to exit zoom mode.
Note: Fixed-layout titles may not fully download or work when reading offline.
Here's an example fixed-layout spread from the graphic novel Roller Girl.
