OMG HELP - cannot read pdfs properly on my kindle

Hello guys,

I added a SCANNED pdf file to my kindle and
I was not able to read as the font was too
small
.

My question is that how to increase the font
size so that I can read easily !

Please do not ask me to increase the font size
THRU KINDLE as it is a scanned file

I have uploaded the file here:

Thanks in advance

I guess your only option is to zoom in.

Install kindlepdfviewer or Duokan.

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=190641

in kindlepdfviewer use two-point cropping to remove margins then turn into landscape mode or use fit-to-content-width (if there is OCR layer) then again landscape mode or try zooming in by 10,20,30 %

you can also use reflow if it is not to slow for your liking

Version for Paperwhite is called KOReader.

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho....php?p=2466450


or use k2pdfopt to reflow scanned pdf beforehand.

forum if you have problems

Before k2pdfopt i would also use Briss or PDF Scissors to quickly and roughly crop pdf margins around handwritten text and then k2pdfopt for pdf reflow or landscape mode without reflow.

k2pdfopt is probably the "easiest" approach
