[QUOTE=dwanthny;952695]The process here does not create an imaged based PDF, just a basic PDF text document formatted to the size of the reader.QUOTE]

I'll take your word for it. What I should say is that the PDF seems to be
treated by the JBL as if it were an image of each page. You can't select
or deal with the text as individual objects. I have PDF files that you can
deal with the text, as text, on my PC (with Adobe Reader) but that appear
as a full page image in the JBL. There is no text re-flow for PDF on the
JBL for a reason, I presume. You can only zoom and scroll the PDF pages,
as if they were images. You can't adjust the font size of the PDF or deal
with the text, of a PDF, in any way, in the JBL. No dictionary, for instance.
(Given Ectaco's background, they would have added a dictionary function
if they could have.)

I haven't looked at the capabilities of the PDF reader used by the JBL or
what features it may support. I am only going by how it actually seems
to be performing.

Luck;
Ken
