New iPad (3) profile

Hi, not sure if this is to do with the profile or simply the way it converts but in the original screenshot the text is formatted nicely, with correct spacing.

But the converted screenshot shows how there is what almost seems a double spacing and when trying to read it in ibooks it looks awful.

Original is a pdf and i'm trying to convert to epub using ipad 3 profile. Is there any way to make the converted file look half decent to read?

thanks

i've just noticed it only seems to happen with PDF sources.


EDIT *i turned on heuristic processing and it formatted it much better. I also noticed it was created a new line at the same place the the changed in the original pdf.

@Ockingshay -

In the Conversion dialogue try adjusting the PDF Input Line Unwrapping Factor, its a bit hit and miss but at a guess I'd say you need use a lower value, but I could be 100% wrong, you might need to use a higher value. See screen shot.

Have you read this ==>> Read this before Posting PDF Questions

Good luck
