Unhappy HELP!!! How To Make PDF Type Larger?

Hi everyone,

Can I enlarge the type for PDF's with the Sony PRS-505? The type is way too small for my eye's! I am very disappointed in this thing and would take it back in a second but the place doesn't accept returns.

Any idea's will be greatly appreciated because 98% of what I currently read are PDF's.

Thank you very much.
Steve

magentawave--Do you have the latest firmware installed on your 505? If so, you should be able to "zoom" in on PDF text files.

Yes I did, and it does make the type a little bigger but its still too small. It seems that it doesn't allow you to zoom in as much with PDF's as it does with other formats. Got any other idea's?

Thanks

I haven't made any modifications yet. I can zoom in one time with PDF's, but it is still not large enough to read comfortably. Will downloading the latest firmware allow me to enlarge the font more than the one time it allows me now?

Are there instructions anywhere on this forum on how to get the latest updates for a Sony PRS-505?

I was never able to install the library either because I have 64 bit Vista. Do I really need that?

Thank you for replying.

Steve
