Margins

Is it possible to remove the margins from an epub? I have images as chapter starts I'd like to make full screen but there is a margin all round.

I've seen a DC Comic ebook that has no margins! Any ideas how to do this?

Hi,
Yes, search in your CSS file and delete margin properties. Simple

You can set the height or width to 100% to make it a full screen image

regards

Also check for non-zero 'padding'. While not common, it can be done.

Set @page{margin:0} and hope the reader does not add its own margins.

Doesn't work! I think the readers are adding their own margin. All my margins are set at 0 and the image to 100% but there is still a white margin all round. Probably a setting to allow a touch point to turn the pages.

Use svg, see the code used by calibre for the cover image in any calibre generated epub.

It is possible with some small changes to code. Some meta in the HTML, a line or two in the XML and CSS changes. Quite easy and makes the document look much nicer but you have to be aware of the different devices it will be viewed on! http://jasonhibbs.co.uk/2012/blank-book/

Ah, but that is a fixed-layout. Those are special type of ePUB that most readers cannot handle. Even if the reader can handle fixed-layout, it is questionable if it can read it, as the implementation of fixed-layout differs between vendors.
