First time with e-reader: what's wrong with conversion?
Hi, first I apologize, I don't speak english very well....
I've just downloaded Calibre, I'm trying to make conversions, but something's wrong.....
I try to convert from several formats (azw or epub for example) to htmlz or pdf.
(I've read in other posts I must convert to these formats because when printing page I have only the outline of image instead image)
Images and text lines are cut when I open converted document (like image, in this case I have a cut image/text on the bottom).
What's wrong? Wrong settings, or program bug?
Can anyone help me?

The chopping of pages is normal for anything converted to pdf by Calibre. The Calibre conversion to pdf uses the QPrinter part of QT and that always chops to size.
To avoid that problem I have been converting to the htmlz format and then using Firefox to open the index.html file found after using unzip on the htmlz. The Firefox can then print the index.html to pdf. Firefox reformats the html before printing where the QPrinter just chops the browser display to size without being reformated.
