Kindle DX and Acrobat Pro Crop Box

Does the Kindle DX respect cropping out of Acrobat Pro, It would seem to be a good way to maximize the screen real estate of the DX?

I've cropped some things with Acrobat Pro. Worked fine, mainly. Had some weird errors when I did too many pages at once though.

On the subject of auto-cropping, I have noticed a behavior of the DX that I want to see if everyone else sees too: In portrait mode, the DX crops all margins of the page as much as possible, leaving very small margins. But in landscape mode, the DX simply zooms to page width.

Has anyone seen different behavior?

I'm not sure if landscape mode "simply zooms", but it's true it does not crop the borders nearly as much, for reasons I can't understand.

I'm pretty sure the reason is this: In landscape mode, the width of the screen is almost exactly 8.5", i.e. the same as a letter-sized page. So the zoom level would usually be 100%, perfectly sufficient for at least 95% of documents.

It makes sense to me. It would be nicer to have a more complex zoom feature, but I'm fairly sure that Amazon has left the UI simple to make it user-friendly for the general public.
