        You may need to update your Adobe Reader App. To do this, go to the App Store and download the Adobe Reader App.

        After you have done so, return to the Download Lite App and go to Files at the bottom of the App. Then, click on the blue arrow next to the document you have downloaded. Make sure to open in Adobe Reader.

      I recently received my print copy of the magazine. Although there are a lot of patterns that have been on the international version of the mag, it is printed on higher quality paper, especially the pattern inserts. The lines are much more clear in the US version, and the paper seems to be of much better quality. All the ads annoy me, but I guess thats to be expected in any US mag. I do like the idea of getting digital pattern downloads with my mag, because tracing them is incredibly time consuming, and I’m not going buy them at 6 bucks a pop. It’d be great if we could download all of them. I hope to see more original content in the future, but even if we continue to see a lot of patterns pulled from the international version, which I also subscribe to, it’s worth it to subscribe just for the digital downloads and better instructions.

      As a side note: I sent them a check via my bank. I wasn’t about to haul out a check and stamp to subscribe to a mag in 2013. You guys seriously need to make it possible to order over the internet .

      To anyone trying to open PDFs on Macs or iPads, Macs have a built in PDF viewer called Preview. iBooks, which you should download if you haven’t already, will open PDFs on an iPad. You can sync PDFs to your iPad via iTunes or. iBooks if you are running 10.9 Mavericks. It is not a licensing issue with Adobe, and the only reason it wouldn’t open is if Burda or FW enabled Adobe DRM, which requires Adobe Digital Editions. I don’t believe they have done so because I don’t see any disclaimers indicating that you need it.

        Well I guess that’s the answer – iPad cannot use Adobe. Usually when I get a pdf file on my iPad it asked me what I want to use to open it and I use an app called Documents but this magazine doesn’t do anything but keep trying to load. Last night decided to open on my Mac and was successful. Mac does use adobe but I guess Apple & Adobe people never reached an agreement.

        Did you ever find your Pattern Library? I haven’t purchased the digital edition of the mag, but given they are using the same system they use for the patterns, that’s likely where you’ll find the download. It’s a rather horrible UI choice on their part, but to access your library, you have to click on the link in the upper right that says wall, then choose the Pattern Library tab on the right below your profile photo and name.

      Will it be possible to subscribe to the digital version at a discount? I’m located in Denmark, and I bought my first issue of Burda a couple of months ago, but as an American, and especially as a beginner to sewing, Burda in Danish is overwhelming. I would prefer a physical subscription, especially one in English, but that’s going to have to wait since sending a check in US funds is rather inconvenient.

      Also, since a lot of specific American fabrics and notions are unavailable in Europe, would there be a method of available of looking up what the original fabric and notion suggestions are? I assume the patterns will be labeled with some sort of official reference number so that I’d be able to look patterns up at the Burda website so I’d be able to get that information that way.

      I’m glad this magazine is coming to the US so more sewers can become familiar with it, altho’ I will probably continue to buy the “International” version at my local fabric store.

      I saw a Burdastyle agenda/calendar on the German website and I wish there was a way to buy one, I couldn’t find it on Amazon. Maybe someday there will be a US version.

        To download the digital version, click “Add to cart” and then check-out. Unfortunately the “Instructions PDF: Click to download” link, which you may be referring to, is something we can’t remove from the site. That particular link doesn’t have the digital magazine. You have to add it to your cart.

      This is great… but, how do I know exactly which patterns are included? I don’t subscribe to Burda, but (lucky me) I can flip through them at the bookstore, so I choose which issues I buy based on the selection of patterns. I can only glean a few things from this preview. Usually the bloggers will help me out, but I’m having trouble finding previews of this one… I feel like I must be missing something obvious.
