None of the available PDF rendering software does a good job of zooming, panning, or cropping, and the programming required to try does use more power, than a simple mobi or epub file.

It's perfect for the chosen size screen, but I forgot to tell you which reader I wanted to read your book on... So what size will you chose? Even reflowable PDFs don't always work well.

In general, I prefer epub - it's not perfect, but it is more easily adaptable.

I have a problem when I convert DOC or PDF files to Mobi with Clibre and Mobi pocket,
1- the alignment of context change
2- some picture and captures eliminated
3- index format change
I think these two software just could change text to mobi correctly but if I want to convert a word (with some picture and graphs) file to mobi is doesn't work correctly,
if I am wrong please help me
