Wider top and bottom margins in LRF

Hello again, everyone!

I've found that, when using Calibre to convert other book formats to LRF, I get wider top and bottom margins. However, books in other formats (EPUB, RTF), and pre-formatted LRF books, doesn't show this flaw.

We use two Sony Readers at home (PRS-600 and PRS-300). So I convert each book according to the device on which it will be read, selecting the output device and letting everything else as default. But the wider top and bottom margins show in both devices.

I tried to trim the default margins to 0.0 at top and bottom, but to no avail (though those margins actually get a bit narrower).

I would like to know if anyone had experienced this. If that's the case, is it a Calibre thing or can it be worked around through settings?

Thanks for your advice!

Moved to correct subforum.

Why not use ePub? LRF is no longer supported by Sony, and the Calibre plugin is, accordingly, no longer maintained. The devices you mentioned should support ePub as their intended "native" format.

I recently had to some testing on a PRS-300 and I found that ePub format was MUCH faster in loading and switching pages than LRF. Not sure if the same applies to the PRS-600.

EPUB in both PRS-300 and PRS-600 doesn't show justified text, which is a feature I like. Both models date back to the times when Sony supported primarily LRF, and actually perform better at this format (though PRS-600 is pretty good at RTF too).
