Extra large left margin?

I'm having a minor annoyance with margins on a converted epub file. I've converted quite a few epubs to mobi and put them on my K3 without any issues, but the one in question has an extra large margin on the left side. It's two or three times larger than the margin on the right, top, or bottom. I tried converting the file again in Cailbre and changing the justification or margin sizes, then putting it back onto the device, but nothing seems to make a difference. Does anyone know what the issue is, or how to fix it?

Try to open epub with Sigil then edit css section and remove margin settings.

Select the "Ignore Margins" option in the "Look and Feel" page of the conversion options.

This is a Calibre question, not a Kindle question. You'd be a lot better off in the future asking such questions in the Calibre forum.

Noted. And that took care of it, so thank you twice.
