Wouldn't iBooks work well for that? Or am I just completely misunderstanding you?

You'll get it with the next OSX update. Sorry, I'm living slightly in the future here.

Seem to be missing something - have installed mavericks and ibooks, and pdf's opened with ibooks are viewed in preview.

Am i asking too mush for a pdf viewer on osx with horizontal scroll?

Haha! Maybe you are! Try clicking on the two little arrows at the top right of the pdf file opened in preview to get to fullscreen mode. Or you could click View->Enter Full Screen. Now swipe left and right ( or up and down until your hearts content ).

But still no continuous scroll!

Surely there must be ONE pdf viewer with this feature?

Haha! So basically you want a single continuous sentence running from left to right. No second line, because to have a second line there would have to be a break, right?

Am I just too daft to understand what you are needing?

What i would like is for the pages to scroll horizontally, ie left to right. Most pdf readers i have seen on mobile os's do this, but yet to find one on osx...

Did you try the swipe left/right or arrow left/right? Mine scrolls horizontally with no problem.

Ahhh! You need it to scroll horizontally on it's own? A little script could do that I suppose, never thought of it.

Sorry if i haven't been clear!

No i don't need it to scroll on its own.

Firstly i would like the pages to scroll horizontally, not vertically as most seem to.

And i would also like the scrolling to be continuous, ie no gaps between pages.

This means that the book will appear as a long, left to right, document, which i will move by scrolling left / right. to me this is a much more preferably UI than vertical scrolling, especially for photo books with pictures across more than one page.
