ePub font size is so small - was not a converted file, BTW

Hi Kovid (et al)
I downloaded the new Auel but the font size, even on the largest setting, is too small to read with ease on my Kobo (and not much better on DH's Sony).

If I "converted" it in Calibre can I set a default font size, and would this work considering the original file is ePub in the first place?

Thanks in advance.

You could also try Sigil, but you will need to know some simple HTML and CSS to do so. (Unfortunately, Word sourced conversions are not simple to follow for newbies. They will be easy to spot. The sytlesheet will have hundreds of lines instead of a few dozen or less)

You can select multiple options regarding font size in the layout tab of the conversion settings. Note, though, that you cannot convert (or edit in Sigil, for that matter) if the book is DRMed.
