ibooks margin problem

Hi guys,

I converted a book in calibre and the margins are too wide on my ipod touch 4G. See the photo below



For comparison, books usually look like this on the device :



I changed the margin settings in epub output on calibre, but that doesn't seem to make any difference. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

What version of calibre are you using. Automated margin removal for conversions to epub have recently been updated twice. If you aren't using a new version update and convert again.

If you have a current version follow lila55's info.

Quote:
Release: 0.7.51 [25 Mar, 2011]

New Features
  • Conversion: Detect and remove fake page margins that are specified as a margin on (nearly) every paragraph. This can be turned off via an option under Structure Detection, in case it removes margins that should have been kept.
Release: 0.7.53 [01 Apr, 2011]

New Features
  • EPUB Output: Remove any margins specified via an Adobe page template in the input document. This means that the margins specified in calibre are more likely to be the actual margins used.
