NAVIGATION & VIEWING FUNCTIONS
While viewing a catalog, do NOT use the RIGHT mouse button functions. It's functions are not designed to work properly.  If you do,
you will be able to Zoom-In, but not Zoom-Out all the way.


This button takes you back to the main page you were on.


The pages of the RadioShack catalogs are stored in 2 sizes: low resolution (72 dpi) and hi-resolution (150 dpi).  In order to display the pages quickly and not cause the user to wait for pages to load, the low-resolution format is displayed by default.  However, since the smaller text can be difficult to read, the user then has the option to Zoom-In on a catalog page.  By zooming-in, a hi-resolution image of that page loads.

2x Zoom and Movement Control:
     To zoom-in and view the image 2 times as large, use the "Zoom-In"
     button.

      Movement Control: Once you zoom-in, you can Click & Drag your
      mouse to move to other areas of the page.

3x Precision Zoom and Movement Control (most preferred way):
     
For precision 3x zoom-in, while on a catalog page, move your
      mouse over the area you want to zoom. Click your LEFT mouse
      button to zoom-in. 
(Note: Do NOT use your right mouse button as this
      will cause the pages to view improperly).

      Movement Control: Once you zoom-in, you can Click & Drag your
      mouse to move to other areas of the page.


To zoom-out after zooming-in, you can either use the "Zoom-Out" button or your LEFT mouse button. (Do NOT use your RIGHT mouse button as this
will cause the pages to view improperly).


Clicking the "Previous" button will take you to the previous catalog page.
  Or, you can click on the outer corners of the left-hand page to view the previous page.


Clicking the "Next" button will take you to the next catalog page.
  Or, you can click on the outer corners of the right-hand page to view the next page.


This function allows you to quickly go to a specific catalog page.  To use this function, click on the down arrow and scroll down to the specific page.  NOTE: If the page does not advance when you first select a specific page number, select another page, then go back.

Please Note: Under certain conditions the "Go to page" will not function properly.   You can read more about it in the RadioShack Forum.


FLIPPING PAGES - You can also navigate to the next or previous page by flipping the pages, just as you would when you read a printed catalog.  To do so, position your mouse over the upper or lower outside corner of a page.  Click, hold & drag your mouse.

PRINTING PAGES
For copyright reasons, while viewing a catalog page, although you are able to right-click and select "Print...", the page will not print properly.
