Can I make PDF text darker? (Kindle DXG)

Ok i know this is a feature on the K3's, but since we DXG owners are still waiting i wondered if there's a way to convert PDFs, say in calibre, so all the text is bold or something like that?

i'm reading a great book on greek mathematics in PDF format, but the text is so thin and light grey compared to normal books. i don't want to convert to Kindle or mobi format as many of the equations look broken, just want to make the text stand out a bit more.

thanks for any help

Hello Max99,

yes you can without any conversion in Calibre, just on your DXG - but not with the Kindle Operation System.

The idea is to load the Duokan OS onto your Kindle. With Duokan you can darken/zoom/crop your PDFs. You will have dual-boot possibility (Kindle OS remains as is and additionally there is the Duokan OS on your DXG). See this thread for details:

I also have tons of pdf on my DXG and I read them only in Duokan while I do the web browsing in Kindle OS.

Best wishes

Biodu
