Smaller fonts?

Is there a way to have smaller fonts than what's already on the reader? I've seen the possibility of custom fonts in this forum but I'm uncertain on how to proceed.

So if I understand correctly, I have to change my .lrf files to something that book designer can open. Once that's done, I have to embed smaller fonts in the document and then reconvert to .lrf?

That worked, thank you.

Now how to I reduce the blank space between each line of text? The font is now much smaller but the text seems to be triple or quadruple spaced.

Hm I've never experienced this myself, usally the font decrease fixes any spacing issue. You might want to try LRF Conver and covert the text to RTF or an ePUB and see if you get better results.

Another thing if you use the lrf2lrf tool is try decreasing all the fonts and see if this fixes your problem (I RECOMMEND you try this on a copy LRF not your original file)
