The Adobe Content Viewer offline extension for Chrome allows readers to view content offline from Web-based versions of publications that use Adobe Digital Publishing Suite (DPS).
HOW IT WORKS
After installing this extension, when you’re viewing content on the Web published using Adobe DPS, you’ll notice a “Save issue” button in the top right corner. Clicking the button will download the content. Note that the “Save issue” button will only appear if you’re entitled to that content, meaning that it’s free for everyone to read or that you’re logged in and configured to read that content.
Viewing content offline
Once the content is fully downloaded, clicking the extension icon will pop up the extension’s Library window, where a preview image of the content will be displayed. Clicking on that preview image will open the content in the browser, even if you’re offline.
After clicking the extension icon to pop up its Library window, hover over the preview image associated with the content you’d like to delete. You will then notice an “X” that appears, which can be clicked to delete the content. A checkmark will then appear which should be clicked to confirm the deletion. Alternatively, you can click “Delete all Issues” in the Library window to delete all content.
Linking to online content
When online, you may wish to link from the offline version of the content to the live online version of the content. To do this, after clicking the extension icon to pop up its Library window, hover over the preview image associated with the content you’d like to see online. You will then notice a “hyperlink” icon that appears, which can be clicked causing the browser URL to navigate to the live version of the content.
Searching for the content title
After clicking the extension icon to pop up its Library window, start typing the title of the content already downloaded that you’d like to view. Only the titles that match your search criteria will be displayed.
