Getting Comic Books on Your Galaxy Tab S2 NOOK

By Corey Sandler

Pow! Oomph! Wow! The Tab S2 NOOK can display specially formatted NOOK comics in portrait or landscape mode. Moving within a NOOK comic book is very simple:

  1. Tap the cover of a comic book to open it.

  2. Swipe left or right to go forward or back, or tap the right or left side of the page for the same effect.

  3. Tap in the center of the screen to bring up the reader tools, including small versions of the entire document. Tap any image to go directly to a particular page.

  4. To zoom in on text and images, double-tap or spread. Double-tap again to return the page to normal.Bookmark a page by tapping the + icon in the upper right. After you place a marker, tap the center of the page to see reader tools, tap the Contents icon, and then tap the Bookmarks tab.

  5. Jump directly to any bookmarked page by tapping the bookmark.

    Comic books never looked this good.

Because comic books sometimes use unusual graphic designs or vary from one edition to another, the Tab S2 NOOK includes support for a special comic book reading mode: Zoom View Letterboxing. That’s a pretty fancy term for a relatively simple thing: the ability to move the view from frame to frame even if they are of different sizes.

To turn on Zoom View Letterboxing, do this:

  1. From any Home screen, tape the Apps icon and then tap the NOOK Settings icon.

  2. Tap Reader.

  3. Tap Zoom View Letterboxing to enable or disable the feature.
