iRiver Story: PDF zoom in landscape mode

Hi!

I just bought the new iRiver Story and have firmware 1.10. I can zoom pdfs in portrait mode but when I switch to landscape I can't zoom anymore. And the zoom is reset when switching mode so I can't set it in portrait and then switch to landscape unfortunately.

I guess this is simply not a supported feature but do you have any ideas if this is coming or any potential workaround.

I'm reading some technical books in PDF format and since there's often big margins so zoom would be great. Also, the landscape mode shows first upper part and then lower part of the page. Current zoom mode (none) shows about 70% of the page total height in the first view, and then the lower part.

So with zoom the upper part would skip the margins and show maybe ~50-60% of the height and the lower part would show the rest. That would be very nice Hope it's an upcoming feature!

Any idea if there are programs that "cuts" the unnecessary white margins for better display on ebook readers? That would also do the trick.

Any ideas and thoughts are welcome!
