Assuming you have the later firmwares installed, eg 1.6 from the iriver international website, when you are reading a pdf, when you press the zoom, a corner appears at the upper left hand, you drag it left or right and press enter and another corner appears at bottom right hand for you to crop the edges, then you press enter again and it crops off unwanted edges. Better option to press options button when you are reading a pdf, and select reflow on, and enter, and then press the zoom buttom to give you the various zoom options. In summary, 2 zoom options: 1 = crop, 2 = reflow and magnify

Many thanks Larry,

I had the 1.5 firmware so just downloaded the latest.
The reflow + zoom works fine.

Hi,

I've just got a brand new iRiver. First thing i did was update the firmware (currently 1.61).

I'm a newbie to the eReaders. When I'm reading a epub, the iRiver shows a default font with 3 levels of zoom. The thing is that, I am not very comfortable with the first nor the second level (I would need something in between), so I was wondering if there is a way to reformat the epub and get new sizes for each zoom level. I have tried with Calibre, changing the base font size, but no way.

Also, I have noticed that one epub that I have has a different font type. How can I change the display font? Do you recommend me any other software than Calibre?

Thx.

Open any non-pdf book, click on the key that has a little magnifying glass on it. The key is on the top row, next to the 'search' key. You're given 3 - 4 font sizes to choose from. You can't set the font size globally though. Font size would have to be set for each book.

For PDF books, you can change font size after you select the 'reflow' option.
