bug in zoom function

Hi,

I've got a prs 505 and noticed a bug in the zooming function, when reading a pdf file.
If I enlarge a page by pressing the zoom button an M inside a circle appears and the page is correctly enlarged.
But when I go to the next page, the page is not enlarged but the M remains.
Now I must press the zoom button twice (M->S->M) in order to enlarge the page correctly. Did someone notice the same bug and is there a workaround?

Greetings

Hi Bube,
Yes this is a know bug. At least I've experienced this defect and others here have mentioned it.

There is no ideal workaournd for this, but there are rumors of a Sony PDF fix.

For me the only PDF I read are those generated by myself or by sites like FeedBook that create custom PDF that are optimized for the reader.

For PDF of size A4/letter then a tool such as PDFLRF can be used to make the text readable on the reader.

Thx for the fast answer.

Than I hope that the firmwareupdate from sony will fix this bug
and meanwhile I take a closer look at pdf2lrf. I just tried it once and unfortunatley the pictures were missing but I didn't play with any options and just used the default values.
