Get rid off "left-justified" text

Hello together,

I'm from germany and I'm new on the KT and have a question to you cracks.

Typically for german texts, we use long words. Now, the most of the books I had on the KT show the text left-justified without syllabication. This is terrible to read, because often a line has only 4 words with 1/3 spacing on the right.

I already use small font style condensed and medium line spacing.

Is there any possibility to let the text be full justified like in a printed book or is it possible to use syllabication?

I hope you have a solution

German might fit better in landscape mode. Might even get 5 or 6 words per line.

Site has a bunch of topics about rotating the screen layout.

Try CoolReader, it has Syllabification and proper justifying.
