Question A problem with Margins? What tool?

I've just purchased a Sony PRS-505 and loaded up a couple of .lrf files into the reader. The problem is the device is wasting a lot of space with these books.

Example:
====================================
"This is and example of how my text looks. As
You can see,
It wastes lines by putting some odd words at
the end
of the line like this!
====================================

I've had a quick go with the lrf2lrf tool, but it didn't seem to make any difference:
lrf2lrf -b 80 mybook.lrf

Is this the correct tool to use or is there something else I can try?

Thankyou in advance

Mark

that is a problem with your source Imput, you are using TXT with hard coded line breaks

Yes, you've got a text file. It is very easy to get rid of the hard line-breaks.
Here are a selection of solutions:
