Adobe reader on playbook

I have been using the adobe reader on my playbook and now want to delete some of the downloaded files, however, I can't seem to find how to do this. There is no delete option showing next to the various files....Does anyone know how to do this?

Re: Adobe reader on playbook

Install a good file browser for the PB, like the Air Browser, should be able to locate and delete them.

Re: Adobe reader on playbook

Downloaded playbook 2.0 user manual. Opened with adobe reader. However, very difficult to advance pages. Bar to advance page keeps disappearing. Further to get to the page turner you have to very carefully swipe from top and bottom of screen at same time. One in three attempts is successful. Must be a better method to read professional documents. Any suggestions?

Re: Adobe reader on playbook

If you open Adobe Reader, it will show your files. At the top right you will see the Edit Pen. Tap it and a garbage can appears next to each file. Tap the garbage can to delete any file you wish.

Just search on "Adobe" and see what you get.

Dulverton,
All I have to do to advance the pages is to swipe from side to side.

Re: Adobe reader on playbook

Jefferyh,
Adobe Reader should be on your home page. The PB comes with it installed and I don't think it is possible to uninstall it.
