Nedd help for settings for PDF conversion to EPUB on Sony PRS 350

I see there is currently no selection for this version of the Sony ereader on calibre. So what do you guys choose?

I was using Sony 300 setting but it came out very messy.

Thanks

Welcome to MR

Someone that knows Sony will be along shortly

Please understand the PDF conversions can be messy. It has nothing to do with the Sony and everything to do with PDF being a poor format to convert FROM.
Please read the PDF section http://calibre-ebook.com/user_manual...-specific-tips and see if this helps get a better output.

I don't believe things coming out "very messy" is due to selecting the Sony 300 setting, the correct setting for your device.

Why don't you explain to us what you mean by "very messy" and under what conditions you see this.

Well sometimes the books look like this. This is just a random sentence.

This what I mean by messy. Hopefully this board will help me because it

seems people really know

a lot about ereaders here. I've looked at the forums here before and people

seem to know what

they are talking about. I really appreciate all the help I am getting. Thanks.



It usually looks like that sometimes worse depending on the book. With the ereader it is NOT double spaced but I had to do that since word wrap seemed to be in effect when I posted here.

The margins are all set at "5.0 pt."

I apologize for not being more specific in my first post.

What you are seeing is lines not un-wrapping (removing the newlines until the end of a paragraph) enough.
You can play with the "un-wrap factor"

Calibre tries to guess where. Changing the number (usually lower than default) a little affests the guess.
There is NO single, Magik setting. Try, look at the results, change and see which way it went ( or )
