New PRS-505 owner seeking help: default font size

Got the PRS-505 a few weeks back, love that gadget ......

Here is my question: Is it possible to set the default font size to "Large" instead of "Small"? Whenever I open a new book, it starts with the smallest font size, and I much prefer if the starting font size can be set to the largest.

I guess this is a firmware hacking question. Any help will be geatly appreciated, thanks in advance!

I don't know of any way to do that.

However, you could convert the files using Calibre, and then tweak the options so you could have a larger font size, and no need for zooming.

Also, if you convert your books to LRF format and copy them using sony's software, then the books will be well indexed by the reader, making the zoom function very quick (I have tried on a 800 pages book, the zoom takes 1-2 secs).
