Question about Margins

Hello,
I have a question about margin settings in the built in reader. I converted a .lit file to .epub and increased the margins from 5 to 10 to give a little more space on all the sides. The first time I viewed the file it seemed to keep to the larger margins. After I played with resizing the reader window it seems that it lost the additional margin padding and now appears to display the text back at the default narrow margins. Is there a setting for this in the reader so it always pads the margins?

On another note, is there a setting to make/force scrolling the mousewheel perform a pagedown/pageup instead of individual lines?

Love this program!
Danny

hmm that's an odd bug. Open a ticket and attach the epub file. And no, there isn't (yet) a way to customize the shortcuts in the viewer app.

Ok, I did a little more investigation on this and realized my initial understanding of the symptoms was not correct. I thought it was adding margins because the particular book I was converting has several pages that already have "wide" margins. I went ahead and reconverted the book again and noticed that the actual book text was never showing the added margin size. I tested another tittle and found it worked correctly-even after resizing. It appears like it may be something with that particular title (one of the baen free ones). I've gone ahead and submitted the epub file.

BTW - I love the new sorting feature!

Thanks!
Danny
