PDF with two column

I have many old manual in this format:



On Kindle dx and landscape mode this font is very small.

I've tried Calibre and Mobipocket but with no succes.

Calibre has a perfect text formatting, better than mobipocket but all jump and skip the text.

any suggestions?

10x!

You could try soPDF, which has a Fit2xWidth option. See also, soPDF GUI Front-End. If this works, you can use the resulting PDF "as is" or again try to reflow with Calibre.

There is an "overlap percentage" option that might help. I'm not sure if the GUI I pointed to previously has this option, if not see post #63.

There is PaperCrop It turns the PDF to an image then crops and reflows it to fit on your screen. The final output can be images or an imaged based PDf.

does it work? please help!

Hi GHO57
I´m from mexico and i bought a kindle 3G, thinking I could use to read two column pdf file, but I can´t!!! I use my account to "convert" the pdf file but it turns out that it cross the columns so I dont understand and I need check out with my computer!! It´s very annoying!
So I was wonder if you actually could convert the two-columns pdf file in a file you could understand!!
