PDF's too small to read

I have some PDF's that I moved onto my reader via Calibre. Unfortunately, when they're displayed on my reader they're just too small to read and incresing the font size on the reader (from small, to medium or large) just doesn't make any difference.

Does anyone know how I can increase the size so that I can atually read them??

Cheers,

Jenny

Convert them to a different format, I had the same problem until I converted them to the LRF format.

Quod erat demonstrandum.

Problem solved..

What I put in bold suggests that your PDF files are not genuine PDF text files but PDF files created from pictures.
Maybe (I am no pro, mind you) you can OCR them with FineReader or ABBYY PDF Transformer? although I am not sure it is worth the trouble. Are you sure you cannot find these books in any other format?

Hi

Try to rotate the PDF on the reader and read each page in 2 halves.

You can check this post I have made to another discussion for an example how it looks a A4 page (white margins cropped) when presented the way I advise above.

Best regards,
