Having read the follow-up replies, and going back to Hitch's earlier post...

Is that all I'm missing out on with the earlier version of KP, i.e. a "smaller screen"? If that's the only difference, I could probably live with that, and just use my imagination as to how things might look on a smaller screen, as long as the KDX preview in the latest KP is rendering things in the same way.

If that's the case, then what's the size of that (or those) smaller screen(s)?

600 x 800 pixels in a 6" screen. You can see the specifications of lots of devices in our wiki.

I took a peek -- wow, talk about TMI.

All joking aside, when I preview in KP as KDX, is how books are rendering text, etc. consistent with those other devices, it's basically just the size of the window that's different? If so, then I suppose I could just live with that -- I've got a vivid enough imagination to picture the window size different, and my main concern is how the text/images are being rendered/displayed.

If there's another aspect that I'm missing out on, though (apart from just window size), well, then I would certainly be more concerned about wanting to be able to preview in that.

Well the window size determines the number of characters on a line and the number of lines on a page. Pagination is a particular issue with smaller screens which today is evidenced on Smart phones. Will a picture fit and look right, will paragraphs (or even words) split in awkward ways, do the headings stay with the text that they are supposed to be with. How does smaller text and images appear on a low resolution screen. These are all part of the reading experience.
