Because CREngine only use integer font size internally, so I am afriad it is not a easy task to implement smaller steps..

Is there any other work around? For example, can we use a smaller font size as base font size?

Following is the font sizes supported by crengine:
Code:
 { 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 
   31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 42, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60, 64, 68, 72 }
Does changing to another font helps?

I want to use specific font. Usually when I make an epub in calibre there is a base font size, so the epub will be opened with the base size then can be zoomed.
Code:
.calibre {
    background-color: #FFF;
    display: block;
    font-family: "Charis";
    font-size: 1em;
However I checked the epub.css in kpv, there are only relative font size, no base font size. So is the actual base font size hard coded in crengine or it just take some default value?

It's OK to use a medium size font as default, but current version can only increase font size from the default, that limited the font size can be used.

Lightbulb Feature request : Manga reader

Could you enhance "zoom to first column function ('F' and 'shift+F' keys)" in reader mode to be able to start at "a top right corner" or "a top left corner"?

So that I can choose "start at top right corner" when reading manga and "start at top left corner" when reading two-column journal.

Two-page manga, for example, http://www.mangaforkids.com/images/howto-spread.jpg

Thank you.

and sorry for my English.

I implemented rtl mode (rtl=right-to-left) to kpdfview, and submitted the PR, but since it fiddles with the vital part of kpdfview, developers want to be sure nothing is broken before they merge it. I made a kindlepdfviewer-v2012.10-5-g692f5ec.zip from my development branch, and uploaded it to github. You can download it here:

https://github.com/kai771/kindlepdfviewer/downloads

Basically, I need testers. If you (or anyone else) have time, please download it and see if you can find any bugs. RTL mode is implemented in these zoom modes:

- fit-to-page-height
- fit-to-content-height
- 2 column mode

You can toggle rtl mode pressing U. In fit-to-page-height and fit-to-content-height mode, you'll want to use it together with comics mode (key C) - otherwise the page will be centered.

If anyone can, please check if 2 column mode works properly for left-to-right columns too. I made some bug fixes to it, so I'd like to make sure they didn't break anything.

I did test as much as I could, and it did work for me, but I need feedback from others. Thank you.

Update: since it's now outdated, the file has been removed. RTL mode is now a part of official v2012.11 release of kpdfviewer.

I'm afraid it's not possible, at least for now.

Hi guys, do you have an estimate on kindle paperwhite compability? I guess involves lots of work since it need be solely touch based. But I'm counting on KPV before I decide to buy a paperwhite, because I cannot bear non-fullscreen reading after using KPV...

Dave got himself a PW, and is working on it. But he's the only one atm, since other developers don't own a PW, and are more interested in adding features for K3.

Don't buy it at least for now. AMAZON is forcing PW to upgrade to 5.3.0 firmware, which wipes out all the jailbreaks and hacks. They are declaring wars on kindle hacker community now.

I just finshed single/double tap and hold gesture detection last night and was about to test it this morning on my PW, and it turns out it has been auto-upgraded to 5.3.0 without asking me (because I forgot to turn into ariplane mode).

I have never read anybook on my PW so far becuase the native reader sucks so much.

If you had installed NiLuJe's "jailbreak bridge" while in 5.2.0, it would still be jailbroken after upgrading to 5.3.0. If you did not do that, then you will need to use a serial cable (soldered to the internal serial port pads) to jailbreak it.
