Because it's a math book, it's very important that everything be in precisely the right place. I can't have question 3 in front of where question 4 goes, and tons of different images have to line up right. It's a 1200+ page textbook and there are probably 10,000 images I'd have to go through and correct, which is utterly impractical. I've OCRd it and tried some of the methods you suggested but I guess this is just not going to happen for me. Thanks again for your time.
This is precisely what something like an iPad or an equivalent Android tablet is generally recommended for textbooks, because they can display the PDF well, and correctly. It just can't be done on an 6" device.
