    Hi all

    When I open pdf files in iBooks and turn the page, the menu bar at the top of the screen (with "library" on it) disappears.

    It seems very hit and miss getting it to reappear. I go back to the first page and tap the top left and sometimes the menu bar appears, sometimes it doesn't.
    I've tried double tapping, holding my finger on, closing & restarting iBooks, rotating screen 90 degrees. All these seem to work sometimes, but not always.

    It's quite frustrating when I want to switch between documents and can't get back to the library. I always get the menu bar in the end, but wondered if there is any way i can get it first time?

    cheers

    The menu bar is supposed to disappear like that.To make it re-appear,all you have to do is tap the center of the screen from whatever page you are on,no need to go back to the beginning.Do not tap the top left corner to bring up the menu bar,it doesn't work.

    Hi, I know how to get to the library menu but what I want to know is there a way to have it always open or stay open longer? It disappears too quickly.

    Thanks

    I'm not aware of any settings for the library top menu. I've searched and cannot find any settings

    With some publications, such as the iPad Guide, the library menu can be left on for 30 seconds or more. With other publications it will hide itself after 6 seconds which should be enough for you to select a command. The menu is called up quickly as advised earlier on in this thread.

    HTH
