Custom line spacing values for K3
I was describing this hack on my blog http://swiatczytnikow.pl/ukryta-funk...za-interlinie/ (it's in Polish) and I was a bit surprised it's not covered anywhere on Mobile Read.
K2 had 9 values of line spacing (1-9), which could be changed with the shortcut: ALT+SHIFT+<number>
K3 dropped the keyboard shortcut and left only 1-3 values in the Aa menu ("small" was 1 and "normal" was 3).
However it's possible to set bigger line spacing values in K3. Just edit the file: system/com.amazon.ebook.booklet.reader/reader.pref and change the value: LINE_SPACING = 3 to whatever between 1 and 9.
Then unplug and restart the Kindle, just as it was in case of justification and margins hack, e.g. http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=99661
Here's how the text looks for the LINE_SPACING = 4 which I prefer:
PS. The hack does not work on Kindle DX (2.5.8) and it seems DX has no way to change line spacing (no keyboard shortcut as well)

Thanks, that is good to know about. Certainly once you have hacked smaller margins and therefore longer line lengths (I use '20' vs the default '40') a little more line spacing is probably appropriate.

This is a really cool hack! I changed mine to 9 as the font I have right now--Georgia 2--has tight line spacing.
Thanks for sharing.
