Hello folks,

Thank you so much for your help. I really appreciated it.

I'm bothering you again. Attached is a three page long pdf (circuit.pdf) file. Can you please send me some screen shot of this while zooming? What happens to the formulas in the first and second page if text size is increased? Does it look ok?

For your convenience I'm attaching the other PDF which contains scanned text (fstrpos.pdf).

Thanks again.

No pictures from me this time because my cellphone camera does a horrible job of capturing the screen, but I can give you a few comments. First, the pdf reflow seems to fail on fstrpos.pdf and on page 2 & 3 of circuits.pdf. So, you can view them just fine, but attempting to change the font size makes no difference in what is displayed. Zooming works just fine, and while it's acceptable for a one or two page read, it would turn reading a longer document into a chore.

All that being said, in both portrait and landscape mode I was able to read both documents. Portrait mode for fstrpos.pdf did approach the limit for my eyes, but landscape mode was very suitable for reading.

Despite the lack of pictures, I went ahead and attached an article that I read on the PRS-600. Hopefully it provides an additional data point to help you make your decision.

Thumbs down

PDFs are just frustrating unless they're formatted specifically for the screen (or you luck out). First there's the lack of a zoom lock. That is to say, if you zoom to eliminate margins, there is no way to maintain this when paging. Why?! And if you increase the font size and use reflow, the original page breaks are kept with no option to change this. Why?! Seems boneheaded to me.
