Two Questions

Hello all, I just have two quick questions regarding Calibre here. I hope someone can help me out!

1) After I convert to LRF (I think that's the file name) and view it in Calibre's viewer, is this an exact representation of how it would look on... say, a PRS-505?

2) I was trying to convert some manga using the "Wide" option, yet when I opened it to view in Calibre it looked exactly the same as if I didn't use the wide option. is there any way to see what it would look like in the wide mode?

I don't own the PRS-505 yet, but I am highly considering it!

No. It is meant to be used as an indication of what it would look like, but it definitely not identical.

2) Not using calibre, use the Sony software instead, which has an actual emulator
