I have created some eGuides specifically for iPhone/iPod 5 using the specified screen dimensions 1136 x 640. However it seems iBook author retains a top bar to show signal strength, time and battery charge.


1. Can that be turned off to achieve full screen and if so how can it be done as part of opening the pdf?


2. What is the remaining screen size so I can build for that?


3. How do I take a screen snap so I can precisely measure what is being used?


4. Is there an alternate eReader that will let me use full screen, but retain full navigation and links in the pdfs?



iPod touch, iOS 6.1.2

    I'm a little confused about what you are creating.  Is the end format .pdf, .epub, or .ibooks?  Are you composing in Pages or iBooks Author?
