Strange new Font issue.

For quite some time now I've been purchasing books in the ereader format and shifting them to IMP.

For some reason the last few seem to have a larger font and have everything BOLD. I've selected XX_small in bookconvert made sure bold was off, tried the other tools "AnytoIMP" and even shifted to mobi and back.

Any ideas?

Actually... Even when I converted an un encrypted mobi I purchased to IMP it had the same issue.... Bug in my reader maybe?

Send me, via PM or my gmail email address, the troublesome file(s) and I'll see if it is an Any2IMP issue or coding issue within the original ereader .pdb that gets extracted.

Does that 'bold and larger font' issue ever show up on other .imp ebooks from here?

I just downloaded a freebie from Smashwords in RTF format and it's also converting with this giant font that most people probably like....

Books I converted a while back do have the correct xxx-small font on them and work fine.

Will send you a ZIP with some examples. Tahnks.

They look the way they should. I just really like the small small font as the larger dark fonts actually make my eyes tired, where the very small ones seem more like paper books to me. (YEah I'm weird)
