How does the eBook bookmarking feature work?

The bookmarking feature works on browser cookies. This means that an eBook’s bookmarks are only remembered on a single computer or mobile device. For example, this is particularly helpful when a student is working on a report from a home computer or personal device. It does not enable teachers to add bookmarks for students to see, unless they are all using the same computer.

Are Abdo Digital products SMART Board compatible?

Yes! However, they are not SMART Board certified, since they were not built using SMART Notebook software. Because of this, there will be some functionality that a SMART Board offers that will not be available with our products.

What do I need to do to display Abdo Digital products on a SMART Board?

Open your Abdo Digital product with SMART notebook, a free software application included with your SMART Board.

How do I turn off the “Save ABDO PDF eBook” button?

The button that allows users to download a PDF version of an eBook appears at the bottom of the hosted eBook screen by default.
  • To disable this feature, Primary Users can access their “My Account” settings upon logging in with their administrator credentials. (This link becomes visible only to administrators, under the user dropdown menu in the upper right corner.) Under “Allow Downloadable eBook Link,” select “No,” and then select “SAVE” Once all users have logged out and back in, this change will be activated.

Why don’t all hosted eBooks have a “Save ABDO PDF eBook” button?

A small number of hosted eBooks from our Spotlight division are not available in PDF eBook format for licensing reasons. In these cases, the button simply doesn’t appear when the “Allow Downloadable eBook Link” option is activated.
