OK, now when I load an epub in the Calibre reader, or previously when I loaded it in Sigil the text was small (perhaps 12pt) and the images displayed at whatever their native size is. The problem is that now when I load an epub in Sigil the images are scaled up and the text is about 30pt. On a 1024 pixel wide Sigil window I get about 5 words per line and there doesn't seem to be a way to change that (image here). By comparison Calibre opens the exact same file with reasonable defaults.

Based on the Sigil XHTML view showing a changed "don't change this" section, I think that's the problem. But regardless, I'd like to be able to change it back. There doesn't seem to be anything useful in the registry, nor in the assortment of file locations that I've checked. So how do I change back to the way it was when I first installed it?

At the risk of adding extraneous detail, I've been doing a fair bit of large-scale editing - take a full novel with HTML next/prev links on every page, and use regex replacement to strip them out. Which at times involves clipboard copying the whole thing into my text editor of choice, using a regex engine I know, then pasting it back in to Sigil. I'm very used to the 100% cpu pause while Sigil loads, saves or changes view mode Sometime in the middle of that Sigil lost the plot as above. I can zip up and send you files or whatever, let me know what you need.

thanks
